We've been back to Napa on 26 for their fabulous Sunday Brunch twice in recent weeks. In February, we booked the entire restaurant the Sunday just before Valentine's Day. A group of friends and their sweethearts enjoyed their fabulous brunch together. I can't say enough about how wonderful the food was. And the service was sublime as always. Just a couple of weeks ago we went back with a smaller group for brunch again. And we were completely satisfied again. Everything is always spot on when we dine at Napa. And now they have their "premium pours" for the brunch taking it up another notch. We love the food, the staff, the ambiance... everything! Keep up the great work at Napa on 26! Truly, one of the best Sunday Brunches in Bangkok!

We read the recent reviews but still thought the restaurant warranted a try. The atmosphere is great. The food most interesting and a really phenomenal american wine list! When the food arrived, it was by -and-large, very good, but our steaks were slightly on the salty side and this was remarked upon when the Chef/owner came to ask after us.

When we asked for the bill, we found the offending items had been removed. We insisted it was not a complaint and only a comment, but his staff replied that it was the policy of the house and a matter of principal that every guest should leave fully satisfied.

This kind of respect and honourable treatment is very hard to find anywhere. we shall certainly be returning to Napa on 26.

Recommended! Thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Napa on my recent visit to Bangkok. The food was great, well presented and well cooked, and tasted lovely. The service was attentive and waiters knew details of the food when I asked. The chef made sure he came to each table to greet guests and get feedback on the food. They called us a taxi and gave my girlfriend a rose when we left. Great evening!

I also dined at scirocco and the food was similar standard, less innovative and more than twice the price. I will return to Napa on my next visit for sure!

I dined here with 3 friends based on the high recommendations on TA. Other than a lovely dining room almost everything we ate was almost inedible.
Please note the restaurant is VERY expensive and sadly the food quality does not even come close to what is served for the price.
The first course in their tasting menu was a trip of seafood - shrimp, scallop and lobster. The lobster was cold and rubbery, the scallop was grainy and cold, and the shrimp was chewy and overall fishy. On top of it the sauce served was watery and flavorless.
The soup was barely edible as it was so salty it made your throat burn.
The main courses were so lackluster that only 1 person at the table finished it completely. They were either tough, cold, too salty or lacked any flavor.
The only downside to the service was when clearing the dishes of the main course no one inquired as to how the food was or why we had not eaten the small portions.

We had higher hopes for dessert and that too was an unfortunate disappointment.
Ordering two apple crumbles served with vanilla ice cream. The ice cream was certainally not homemade or premium and tasted like the cheapest brand you can buy at the store. The apple crumble was cold and had a stale refrigerator aftertaste. Not to mention the apples were not real apples but some sort of bitter/sour apple chewy candy like substance. Suffice to say we did not finish either one and again the servers never inquired as to why.

Overall all four of us were extremely disappointed with the quality of the meal for the over 10,000 THB we spent and actually went later for sushi down the street as we were all still hungry.

As a local here in Bangkok I must URGE locals and travelers to seek out the may other wonderful fine dining restaurants in the city.

Napa on 26 was a huge disappointment and we will never be back again.

Have visited Napa on 26 a few times after work for a quiet glass of wine with friends and collegues. It is tastefully decorated with well trained staff. Regrettably have not had time to eat here yet but I will
