What A Gem! Worth the Hunt.This was definitely my best meal in Bangkok and one of the best on my trip. However, it took me a while to find it. Due to a problem getting taxis from my accommodation to this area I took the Skytrain option and the directions given on the Paste website were a bit vague for a walker unfamiliar with the area. However I eventually found it hidden away down a Soi off a Soi and was surprised that I was one of only 6 diners there that Sunday night - maybe the rest came later at night? It is a delightful small space and the staff are very attentive, but the highlight is the brilliant food. After a very tasty morsel of an appetizer I had a .Smoked Duck entree followed by Three Time Cooked Pork in Tamarind Caramel. Both dishes were very interesting and very tasty. I will return, unfortunately not soon enough.
Modern ThaiWe went to the new branch of Paste at Gaysorn Plaza.We have put this place on our places to eat in Bangkok list which we send to friends when they ask us.The food was different to what you normally find. Beautifully served, very tasty and interesting.We had the lemongrass cheese cake for dessert and loved it. It was more a deconstructed cheese cake and finished off a delicious meal perfectly.It is expensive by Thai standards.
Better than one might thinkAs a Bangkok resident I find Paste to be curiously underrated. In reality, it has gotten better over the last year or so, the kitchen seems to have come together well. This is carefully researched Thai food a bit like that of The Local on soi 23, but in some respects a little better ( not all ). Its a slightly small space, not much going on, but elegant and intimate - I like it. Theres a little cocktail bar upstairs that makes very good mixes. Last meal I had here was really excellent - I was a little surprised. Textured, deep curries, superb, complex salads. Its now one of my go-to places for serious Thai and they deserve some kudos.
Stunning food and service staffA lovely restaurant with superb service staff and some lovely views back over Bangkok.The food is modern Thai with some very interesting flavours, full flavours and not too spicy for my western palette. The ambience in the dining room was generally lovely except for one or two Australian Chefs in uniform sitting in the dining room having discussions about food, trip advisor and things in general. This impacted negatively on our experience
A little fav grows upPaste now has a space that better reflects its outstanding Thai food. The Gaysorn off shoot is very glamorously decorated and with some new and interesting dishes on the menu. But the old favs from the original restaurant are still there.Service is a little patchy with too many different people working our table over the course of our lunch but for the most part, with one exception,it was of a high standard.The location a top a mall is a little off putting but it does make access easy.
本来在paste和另一家餐厅间犹豫，因为环境选了另外一家，但是头一天在Gaysorn按摩，路过paste的广告牌，瞬间被食物照片吸引，当下就定了第二天的午餐。这也算是一种缘分吧。上来先是amuse bouche,碎蟹肉沙拉放在薄薄的cracker上，味道不错。前菜点了roasted duck, nutmeg, curry paste & sawtooth coriander served on rice crackers. 烤鸭肉碎、肉豆寇碎和香菜碎搭配咖喱酱料，放在米饼上，非常好吃。 watermelon, ground salmon with fried shallots & roasted galangal powder，西瓜、三文鱼松、三文鱼籽，吃起来甜滋滋的，味道神奇却不难吃。 汤点了hot and sour soup with crispy pork leg，猪脚酸辣汤，汤料很多，猪脚确实好吃，但是整个汤感觉很heavy。主菜点了蟹肉黄咖喱，非常好吃！咖喱很香甜，蟹肉量也不少，搭配在一起非常下饭！另外点了char-grilled pork glazed with wild honey，fennel seeds，a smoked eggplants & tomato relish. 炭烤猪肉，搭配茄子和西红柿泥，猪肉味道非常好，搭配茄子西红柿泥解腻，不过也是有点heavy。甜品点了芒果糯米饭，不是寻常做法，糯米饭很少一点，不是很滋润，口感偏硬。芒果也不是大口的芒果肉，变成了芒果肉碎加芒果慕斯，搭配了冰淇淋。感觉这道非常普通，没有正常版本的芒果糯米饭好吃。整餐下来觉得paste的味道很扎实，菜也做的非常有细节，环境安静非常好，下次会再来挖掘其它菜式。
