Description: Above Eleven is a rooftop restaurant & bar on the 33rd floor of the Fraser Suites Sukhumvit in Sukhumvit’s pulsating Soi 11 offering magnificent views of Bangkok's skyline.

Peruvian food has been generating enormous publicity over the past few years and is currently regarded as one of the top food trends in the culinary circuit. The venue has received raving review since its opening in April 2012. Diana Hubbell of Masala magazine referred to Above Eleven as "Bangkok's next big thing." Debbie Yong's review of Above Eleven in the Singapore Business Times hoped Above Eleven "Sets its eyes on Singapore next." Advanced reservations recommended. Reservation Hotline is available daily from 10am onwards.

Great place to spend a night in Bangkok. Great food, drinks and service. A bit prizy, but the location and quality in mind, it is nothing. Treat yourself by being there around 18, so you can see the sunset.

Me too! Would some emergency plan come in action? Would we be evacuated from the roof? Well, basically, no. When we where almost finished with a wonderful dinner, we saw some lightning bolts and heard the rumble of thunder.

I asked Prerak Sing Panwar, the assistant manager who was doing a terrific job in making us feel very welcome and at home. He explained to us that all Bangkok rooftop bars must have a canopy that can be closed when it rains. If necessary, about 80% of the bar could be kept dry from the rain, yet some customers choose to stand outside in the ran because, well because they are on the 32rd floor of a building in Bangkok.

I must confess, this is the first time I was very positive about my visit at Above Eleven. Whether it's because it's the first time I've actually eaten here or that the assistant manager was doing a superb job, I don't know. But my two previous visits in a length of two years didn't went well, as you can read elsewhere on Trip Advisor. One of the comments by management about my experiences then, was that, first of all, Above Eleven is a restaurant.

I think this is something to keep in consideration when you pay a visit. This is isn't a rooftop bar like, say, Lebua, where you have a very expensive cocktail bar where you mainly come to drink those expensive cocktails. This is a restaurant that haves a bar and is situated on the rooftop of a building. Just to illustrate: I saw some girls sitting in another bar at Soi 11, when we walked back to our hotel, who walked in at Above Eleven just about 20 minutes before we left.

Back to our vsit. We started at the bar with a Big Smokey Apple (nice) and Maracuja Sour (complicated, the cumin gives this drink a very special bite) cocktail. About 40 minutes later, we where relocated to a great table with an even greater view. We started of with the Above Eleven Cebiches (seabas, schrimp and fried calamaris) and the Tuna Tataki (Aji amarillo, avocado, red chili ponzu sauce). Very good! Our second cocktails where the Lavendue (both very good!) and the Inca Sour (with gin in stead of Pisco Quebranta).

We continued with the tuna taco, chicken skewers and finished of with a chocolate cheese cake. The food was great. Prerak did a really great job in giving us his recommendations, but letting us very free to choose what ever we wanted. The way he engaged with his customers, is what hospitality is all about. I did not tell him my previous visits where not that good, because I wanted him to feel free in his behaviour too.

Why such a lengthy review?

Because I've written two negative ones due to my experience. But this time wasn't just third time lucky. My aim is to always try to put things in perspective. Things can go wrong when you're in a bar or restaurant. Not nice, but it does happen. It's the way staff and you (yes, you!) try to deal with it and fix things afterwards. It's easy to point out things that don't go well, but if something is good it dserves to be mentioned too.

I don't know of Above Eleven has changed things staff wise since my last visit, but the staff was noticeably doing a better job then during my previous visits. My compliments, especially to Nui who also did a great job in serving us.

One more thing to conclude with: be advised that Gramercy Park (the top top bit, which you could access through that leafy door), is closed for renovation. Due to open in a couple of months. It is going to be something completely different than it was. I'm very curious what it well become like!

I visited Above Eleven with my friend for dinner and drinks. We arrived at 6pm for it opening without a reservation and managed to get a seat right at the edge with a perfect view. The food was lovely and very filling and pretty reasonable for the setting. The cocktails and prosecco were also great. Our waiter, Cristian, was so attentive and helpful, everything was served with a smile. I would definitely come back the next time I’m in Bangkok.
