Bangkok Restaurants

Le Normandie

Updated 04/30/2013

Fodor's Review

Perched atop the Mandarin Oriental, this legendary restaurant commands an impressive view of the Chao Phraya. France's most highly esteemed chefs periodically take over the kitchen, often importing ingredients from the old country to use in their creations. Even when no superstar is on the scene, the food is remarkable. The pricey menu (it's hard to get away with spending less than B5,000 on a meal) often includes classic dishes like slow-cooked shoulder of lamb. The best

bet is the prix fixe menu for 4,700 baht.

One night in Bangkok

My wife and I spent an evening at Le Normandie recently and it was the most sublime experience from making the booking to sipping an after dinner brandy whilst looking out over Bangkok by moonlight. We made the booking via email before leaving the US. The assistant manager was most accomodating and even rearranged our booking for a different night at very short notice. The hotel itself is beautiful and a perfect setting for a romantic dinner for

two. Take the time to walk the gardens and sip an aperitif. We both ordered the Chef's De'gustation menu, seven courses and seven selected wines. I highly reccommend this choice. The food was excellent and we got to sample many of the chef's talents at one sitting. The exceptional meal was complimented by the equally attentive service and the sensational setting. The waiters were almost psychic in their abilities, never obtrusive but always appearing when needed. They even made the meal itself into a small piece of theatre, taking great delight in revealing the courses in unison at the table. And the setting...overlooking the river and the city. We live in Chicago and have sampled many excellent restaurants around the world. This was was one of the best. A not to be missed experience.

Truly an amazing experience. The Fodors pricing is a bit off. It's well over $20. We spent $250 for 2 people. All the courses and one bottle of $50 wine. Well worth it. Everything was incredible. It seemed that they could read your mind when you needed something. My husband and I were blown away by the service. I gave it a 5 for value not because you get $200 worth of food but because you get $200 worth of overall experience. Something you never

forget. Highly recommend.
