So many times there, their food and service are very consistency and up to three stars Michelin standard. The only thing I can complain is the wash room, it's not inside the restaurant. My commend for this restaurant only one word "Fabulous"

It has been 13 months since we were at the Water Library, and it was better than ever. So good at dinner that we returned a few days later for lunch. The decor is beautiful as is the presentation of the dishes. They taste even better than they look. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced by Bangkok standards.... More

I had high expectation before the lunch as I'm going with 6 fussy friends, and Water Library doesn't fail us, all of us left with a satisfying stomach. We had a great time enjoying the food from appetizer til the coffee/tea at the end, I agree with the reviews before, yes it was a bit warm so we drank plenty... More

I was blown away by this restaurant and found the quality of food to be exceptional and far beyond what I was expecting. I'm fortunate to have eaten in many fine restaurants around the world and I can honestly say that this is comfortably in the top 2-3% of places that I've visited. There were a couple of small imperfections,... More

I like the concept of this restaurant, focusing on water instead of wine. Comfortable, spacious and with a 360 degree view, you will not be disappointed. The menu and ingredients are gourmet and the presentation fine dining. I loved the snow fish with mushrooms, great combination. The service is experienced and took us through this culinary journey with a smile.

Impressive display of water from all over the world meet you when you enter this place. We selected sparkling Voss and the Atlantic cod was a delight; both presentation and taste. Professional and attentive service. Excellent place for a business lunch and I will certainly return.

Fantastic meal, from beginning to end. It doesn't get any better than this. We created our own tasting menu, shared several plates. Afraid to mention any particular dish, for fear you'll hesitate to create your own, but have at it, and go for it, you won't be disappointed. We've dinned around the world, we're foodies, and we'll be talking about... More

My wife and I went here to celebrate her birthday, and I have to say it was, overall, a good dining experience. I have to admit, I wasn't really that interested in going here - I thought it was more hype than substance ... but I was proven wrong. We opted for the classic tasting menus - and we both... More

With note so many choice of fine dinning in Bangkok, Water Library emerges as one of the top choices for many diners. However, despite all its fanciness it trys to put on the dish, I still something is missing. Many dishes are executed very well, but it lacks charm that would make be want to go back to eat the...
