My Thought Walking In
Well first attempt the place was fully booked, so my thought was “this place must be good”. Second attempt was Tuesday morning so not so busy as the previous weekend visit. Initial thought was “wow – amazing food”! I only had to take a few steps in to see all the huge range of amazing food on the tables ranging from breakfasts, deserts, pasta’s and other main meals. The place has a very open, bright and modern feel to it, however at the same time comfortable and a relaxing place to sit and chat among friends. Not too loud so you can hear your own voice but busy enough to make it feel vibrant and social.
My Thought Leaving
Great place to come with a group of people for a brunch or dinner. Prices aren’t the cheapest, but they are a popular restaurant and for good reason, their quality in food and coffee is definitely up there! I’ll be back, but like I said, would make an event of it with friends or family.
How I Felt There
Relaxed and comfy – we did have a corner table which made it feel like we had our own space – I’m not sure I would feel sitting on one of the table in the center in the way of the people coming in and out.
What I Will Remember
The Good: The quality of food and service! The service was great, fast and with a smile and they got everything right (including my mum’s half shot latte!) 🙂 I also liked the way they served us a plate with lightly toasted sourdough bread and butter before bringing out the main meals.
The Bad: They throw two extra figures on top of your bill…One for the tax and the other a service fee – Ouch!
Will I Go Back?
The COMMONS 335 Thonglor Soi 17, Sukhumvit 55. Klongton Nua, Wattana, Bangkok 10110 – would be a great spot for dinner because you could have your meal and then head to one of the Thonglor bars perhaps Scenespace.
If you’re coming by BTS, then hop off at Thonglor BTS station and just walk up (or take a taxi) Thonglor – Thonglor soi 17 is about 1km up on your left.
Price is a little on the high side but reasonable for the food. I always compare the price with back home (Melbourne) and it was no different to what you would pay in any of the local cafe’s back home.
