As you’ll know I can be a bit agressive when it comes to reviewing restaurants. Mahanaga was getting rave reviews last year and was meant to be the next big thing in modern Thai cuisine.

We spoke to a concierge at the Peninsula, and a couple of Thai friends in Bangkok, and the resounding opinion was – nice decor, food ain’t much.  More Asian-confusion than modern Thai, so we swerved.

Come on Bangkok – we need a Demon Chef down in your city!  I love, love, love Thai food, especially Isaan.  Be bold, be creative, be focussed and create somewhere to blow my mind.
