Fodor's Review

Choose between tables on the terrace or in the dining rooms of this small house near the river. Inside, Thai antiques, chests scattered with bric-a-brac, and bouquets that seem to tumble out of their vases create relaxing clutter, as though you're dining at a relative's house. The staff is very good at helping indecisive diners choose from the brief menu. The Massaman (peanut sauce–based curry) pork spareribs, the mild crab curry, and the deep-fried fish with

lemongrass are all excellent. Chu-chee prawns or larb moo are slightly more interesting dishes, as is the hoa mouk—fish curry in a banana leaf. Over the years the crowd has become increasingly touristy, but there are still Thais who eat here regularly.

Fabulous Food

This was our favorite restaurant in BKK. Small, casual, fun place in a unique old shophouse setting with fabulous food. Crowded and busy, so the service may seem a bit rushed.

Proprietors with serving cocktails in mind

Food rating good to very good, ambience nice, proprietors both male and female have sales of cocktails on mind (high prices and good profits). A cosy oasis in a sea of shabbyness surrounding the restaurant with dwellers further down the soi. rc

Charming & delicious

We love this place! Have been returning every time we visit Bangkok over the past 7 years! Charming & casual venue, friendly attentive service and most important - delicious food! Try the steamed fillet of fish with lime sauce. Yum!

Funky good time

Scatterbrained wait staff but the funky decor, really good inexpensive food made up for it. No A/C. Very casual. Would return.

Cozy garden setting

Great food, cozy garden setting. You'll want to stay and soak up the atmosphere. The service is pretty slow (especially when you're ready for your check), but go anyway. Easy 10 minute walk from the Oriental.

delightful discovery!

A delightful place to eat in an old Thai house. Since the smoking regulations in Bangkok have changed, if you want to eat without being bothered by smoke, you'll have to ask to be seated inside. The food was very good, with some different touches from other places - like a fresh steamed bread served with the curry rather than rice. I highly recommend it.

Vintage Bangkok at its Finest

I never expected such a lovely Thai restaurant to be tucked in this small soi just off The Shangri-la Bangkok! Food was great, service attentive and polite, and ambience truly Thai. Even the proprietress was extremely pleasant. Worth the trip wherever you are in Bangkok!

Thai cuisine en bric a brac

Harmonique is the type of small cosy restaurant around a courtyard that one would more expect to find in Italy or France than in Bangkok. It is unique, both in the imaginative use of regional antiques in each of its small townhouse rooms and in the bustling ambiance of the al fresco courtyard. Its food is of exceptional quality, emphasizing the underlying Thai spice subtleties. Prices are extremely reasonable. It attracts both discerning Thai and

foreign visitors equally. Service, from the family can be haphazard, so be prepared to pass a couple of hours. The doors close early around 9pm. Highly recommended.
