The moment I entered Restaurant and Bistro The Kitchen, I suspected, from looking at the expressions of the other diners, that I was in for a slightly stiff ride. One can tell a great deal about the meal ahead simply by gauging the atmosphere at...other tables, well, alarm bells ring. From the characterless tom yam khung, to the actively repellent wanton shrimp soup, I like to think the staff made these up as a prank, and were watching to see if I would be an obedient foodie and play ball. Let us never speak again of the khao ob sapparot – fried rice with pineapple and vegetables. Service, it must be said, is chaotic, so if one wants terrible food delivered quickly, accompanied by several other unappetising dishes you hadn’t ordered but other diners are currently waiting for, The Kitchen is for you. I walked out in revolt and was still in dire need of some lunch. I’m a great believer in the best reviews being the shortest ones, so the succinct version is: ‘I would rather choke on my food and die than go here again.’ This is the true truth as I say it as it is…More

Stopped on the way back from the beach for a couple of drinks. Waitress was quick to serve us and we sat in the sun outside by the road which was quite busy and noisy. You can sit inside if you wanted. Prices were reasonable...and the place was clean, sadly we didn't have time to eat anythingMore

Just terrible. Slow/bad service (we waited about 10-15 mins for waters as the waiter stood around texting on his phone. When the meals arrived, both steaks were improperly cooked and the meat tasted like dog food, chewy and bland, basically they use stewing beef. Overall...just gross. There are plenty other steak houses that are so much better than this place. Don’t waste your time or money. After the meal felt like I was going to be sick. :(More

We stopped in here for lunch when at Central Festival. A nice mix of Western and Thai / Asian foods.We shared a Caprese salad and I enjoyed the Larb Gai. Not too expensive (though plenty of cheap options around) but worth the priceMore

Good Thai and steaks, If your kids fed up of thai food but you still need Tom yam, this is a right place to have a Thai European dinner
