I met up with my ex colleague here for dinner. We tried the seasonal tasting menu and ordered a bottle of Italian wine with the help of their sommelier. We were told the lobster ran out and they would substitute that with crab meat. Overall the food was tasty and clever, and the plating was immaculate (I loved their china).... More

What a great experience. From my prospective one of the best restaurants in Bangkok. Hidden in a mall where you would never expect such a restaurant. The beef was world class and the lobster bisque as a starter perfect. Somewhere between one and two Michelin stars.

Really lovely restaurant, perfect for a special occasion such as a birthday dinner. My wife had the chefs menu with a wine arrangement and I ordered a la carte (the scallops as starter and lamb rack as main). What a feast, we also got additional amuses before and in between courses. The wine arrangement was great, same as the wine... More

Who would have thought to find such an awesome setting in one Bangkok's luxury mall? The moment we stepped in, we knew we were not going to be disappointed. From the service to the food, Water Library brought us an amazing lunch experience. Ovation to Chef Mirko and is wonderful team! We will come back again, soon!
