Excellent menu, service was outstanding, but portions were a touch small for the price and food could have been a little more daring with the flavor. Wine list is not the best in BK, but strong. Really a great place in BK, looking forward to returning!

To start with a summary, I think Nahm in way overrated. Solid Thai food, but based on the hype I expected way more. We had the tasting menu, which consists of a selection from the regular menu, way too much food by the way.

It started with a bang, and ended with a thud. Canapes were good, appetizers spectacular, one of the main dishes (The squid) was a complete failure the others were good but not spectacular. My desert was a complete failure - some underripe fruit, the other one was kind of meh, various coconut concoctions.

Am I being harsh? Maybe, but at $250 for two people I do expect way more than just solid food, especially considering that a couple of days later we had a spectacular squid dish in a small restaurant for $6.

Thank you for your great service.
We understood your original menu as modern Thai foods.
It was first time for us such challenging foods.
It is good for European customers but not for Asian, I think.

Amazing! Staff was extremely friendly! Unique and authentic dishes (well at least to me bc I'm a foreigner LOL) We had no clue what to order and asked for recommendation. I am glad I followed their guide! Duck curry was my favorite! Cocktails and dessert didn't disappoint! My only note would be it's FREEZING there, so bring a cardigan ladies!

I was very disappointed with my visit to nahm. I had eaten in this restaurant 4-5 years ago and thought it was an incredible dining experience. How things have changed.

The food is no better than an average Thai restaurant in Bangkok (in fact we had better food on all of the other nights during our stay). The staff are very inexperienced and disorganised. There are none of the touches one would expect from a restaurant claiming to provide a fine dining experience. Our meal was also ludicrously overpriced.

It seems to me that in the 4 or 5 years since I last ate in nahm, the quality of the restaurant has halved and the prices have doubled. Definitely one to miss.

Great staff and team, a true experience ! We opt for set dinner which offered a completed experience. Portioning is good which allows us to finish the set with room for dessert. Everything is within expectation, though some element of surprises may be great to the make the experience even better !

Great food at a very reasonable price but the service was seriously lacking. I was never asked the entire meal if I wanted another drink after finishing my cocktail and water, though my husband was. When asking my husband if he wanted another drink our waitress ignored my empty glass and left before I could request another cocktail.
I was also left without rice for my curry for a good 10 minutes and when our waitress finally brought it after flagging her down she gave me maybe 3 bites worth while giving my husband plenty. Luckily another waiter noticed and brought the rice over again, giving me a normal portion. Our waitress was inattentive for the majority of our time there. We were sitting without drinks or food at the end of the night and when I motioned to her for the check she came over and asked what I wanted... It was not very busy on this particular weeknight, as the level of service would have been more understandable if she was slammed with other tables.

The food was really wonderful -the desserts were especially beautiful- and spice level was perfect. But at a restaurant this nice you'd think they be hiring seasoned waitstaff. It seemed like this was her first night serving. It really put a damper on what should have been a fun night out on vacation.

having eaten at nahm twice before 2 years ago i thought it would be the same great food but unfortunately it wasn't. I would recommend this place for normal dinner but lower your expectation and for sure it is not a Micheline star restaurant. Not even close to being one. I had few things but the beef order i had was so soggy and spicy that you just can't eat. Nice service but english could be better. The best part was the sweets.

We had high expectations for Nahm but it was a disappointment. First, we were not told there was a dress code, nor did we expect there to be one. Nahm’s decor is more casual bistro than Michelin dining. We were asked to either wear the restaurant provided pants (disgusting) or to leave. The host was condescending to the point of rude (especially for Thai standards). The food was delicious, but took a long time. The portions were extremely small. The meal turned out to be San Francisco priced, extremely expensive for Bangkok standards. Bangkok has so many great dining options so save your time and don’t come here.

NAHM was highly recommended but turned out highly disappointing- lacks atmosphere, bad seating arrangement-next to service area, asked for mildly spicy main- received it full of visible chilli -was told too just try it, mix it with rice- patronising, rude- poor service- NEVER AGAIN NAHM!

We had come directly from the airport to start our 2 day wedding anniversary celebration food experience in Bangkok.
Whilst the food was good, it wasn't exceptional as we had expected when you know you are paying a certain price. We were to learn during the meal that amazing David Thompson is no longer the owner? perhaps this is why it didn't meet our expectations. Everything was well presented and beautifully cooked but didn't deliver the extra special edge on taste that we were expecting.
The service and atmosphere were fantastic, and we are disappointed that the food experience didn't justify the cost for us.

I liked the ambient and also the food as I asked to avoid any spiciness (I hatespicy food). Unluckily my boy-friend didn’t digest everything and he had stomach pains during the night,but maybe also for different reasons. i loved almost everything, lamb and lobster main course were really good. Dessert good but nothing special. overall cost instaed is too expensive,included Wine List. ambient superlative. My suggestion: I understand authentic thai food it’s spicy but Many western people don’t like it,so the menu should enclose also soft dishes and it should be indicated in the menu the spiciness level, so that desgustation menu can be accorded with personal tastes and preferences. Reduce Wine cost also :) the recharge on it is too high

Extremely underwhelmed. Spicy/chilli just for the sake of it, as opposed to bringing out flavours (AND I'm a Thai that loves chilli/spice so I can taste the flavours aside from chilli/spice. Feels like a bit of a tourist trap (hence using chilli to claim authenticity). Where the dishes were not chilli/spicy, they failed to have distinct, outstanding flavours. And the prices being paid, would expect more re quality/portion/flavours/roots of ingredients/organic ingredients.

We visited Nahm on our last night in Bangkok during at 2 week trip through Thailand, and loved our experience. We choose the tasting menu for 2 and it was more than enough food. Each dish was fantastic, and we enjoyed the complex flavors. Drinks were fantastic, as was the wine selection. The waitstaff was really helpful and made sure we didn't pick dishes that were too spicy for us (we like spice, but Thai spice is a different level). We made sure we dressed appropriately, per the restaurant's request.

This is absolutely the worst Thai food I have ever had. Terrible. All of the food was poor quality and badly cooked. The meat was tough and gristly. The seafood was not fresh and smelled bad. The eggs were overcooked. Every last dish had too much sugar or too much salt- the flavors were unbalanced. How this could possibly be on ANY top list is beyond me. Literally everything I ate off the street yesterday for a fraction of the price was better than this. It is an embarrasment for a country with such great food. Also, the wine list is terrible. Top 50 in the world? I don’t think so. Makes me wonder who paid whom for that title, because it is certainly not deserved.

We had the set menu and enjoyed all the different food on offer. It was nice, but after being in Thailand for two weeks I would not consider going to Nahm again. There is so much great food on offer in Bangkok and Thailand in general, so paying nearly $300 for two people to have dinner in a poorly lit room doesn’t make sense to me.
My wife and I also felt terrible the day after eating here, which did not happen anywhere else we ate in our two weeks in Thailand.

nahm is a must dine experience not to be missed. Finest Thai influenced cuisine I have ever had. Tastes were phenomenal. Service was exceptional. Selections were extraordinary. Well worth the nearly 7,000 mile journey to get there. Easily deserving of 2 Stars in Michelin.
