BANGKOK AMAZING GOURMET
Orient, not the Oriental
This is a modern Thai restaurant quite well received within the local high-so(ciety) circle renowned for its traditional fare of exquisite recipes from the royal palace.
I really like this Restaurant. Not about her food, but the longer operating hours. I hate most local family restaurants "welcome" customers with an ugly face after 9 pm (as waitress busily painting watercolor on face to prepare a funky trip to hell). Service at the Orient is impeccable; normally this kind of (good) service doesn't exist in a standalone restaurant.
The Orient deserves the Like from facebook!
