Tasty Thai food in a great location for a date
I expect those who like good quality Thai food will find much to enjoy at this quite classy restaurant on the edge of Ginza. I was looking for a place for a sort of romantic dinner. We both like food from South East Asia, and while we were actually looking for a Singapore Seafood Republic (same building) we ended up opting for this place.
The decor is really nice, and the atmosphere (at around 7pm on a Sunday) was really calm. It's a small place and tables are quite close together but it doesn't feel cramped in here, and you feel as if you can talk openly without worrying the people at the next table can hear what you're saying. The only problem really with the layout is that, although the windows have views over towards Yurakucho Station, the table aren't laid out to make the most of them. So, this isn't a 'view' restaurant.
Food wise, it's not cheap, but not super expensive either. Maybe around 700-1,000 yen for appetizers, 1,500 - 2,000 yen for mains. We shared a couple of appetizers and mains, plus with a couple of drinks each the bill came in at around 7,000 - 8,000 yen.
The food was nice but in Thai style, some of it was really hot. That said, the staff here were really friendly and happy to explain what was going on with each dish and help make choices if needed.
The location is nice for an evening out being sort of between the Ginza and Yurakucho areas.
We didn't need a reservation, but maybe on a Friday or Saturday night it might be recommended as this isn't such a big space.
