Lan Na Thai and Face, Bangkok – too farang by far
Disappointing juxtaposition here. Great bar, crap restaurant.
The venue that houses Face, Lan Na Thai and Hazara it stunning. Beautiful teak housing complex, fishponds, palms, soaring ceilings, nooks, crannies and separate buildings. It’s well hidden behind big gates and a high white wall, so it’s a lovely feeling to discover it and leave bustling Bangkok behind.
If you haven’t been to BKK before then you really have to go and have a few drinks at Face, it is really lovely – good cocktails, great surroundings, good service etc.
I haven’t tried their Indian food (Hazara), but the Thai food (Lan Na Thai) is very disappointing and expensive for what it is. Far too farang friendly, the heat is completely toned down and just dull, dull dull – don’t bother if you like it fiery.
Location: 29 Sukhumvit Road, Soi 38, Bangkok. Tel: 662 713 6048. Very Close to Skytrain station Thong Lo, couple of mins walk.
