Fai Sor Kam


When aroma not aromatic

Fai Sor Kam refers to a Lanna style home textiles, scented candles and fragrant products manufacturer, with showrooms at Siam Paragon and Siam Discovery Center for over a decade. They recently extended their business ambitions to a culinary business, with the debut of Fai Sor Kam Thai Restaurant, adjacent to the original Fai Sor Kam Home Collection Store at the Siam Paragon.

The food, however, is not as commendable as their home collection products. I find that her Northern specialty dish - khao soi (Northern curried noodle) is ranked top, counted from the bottom, from my list. All dishes at Fai Sor Kam are mono-taste, pungent hot, and lacking of the essential balanced taste of the famous Thai cuisine. Maybe the existence of Fai Sor Kam Thai Restaurant is only to help those restaurants which serve mediocre food look smarter!

Wow, hard to find one restaurant in BKK that is not good.
This made me feel better for those restaurants in LA.

Oh.. this one. I remember as last time we walked by it. Sigh... Siam Paragon is really having a competition for the worst restaurants gathering. So many restaurants but only a few can be real restaurants.

If we don't read your comment and only go by the photos the food looks good.
The sofa and cushion look good too.

I think because of their arts and craftsmanship, they could make a nice presentation of the dishes. So it's just for seeing in this case. :)

Yes by seeing the photos of the deco and the dishes without reading TC's comments then cannot tell this place is on the black list at all.
