The food was outstanding and some of the best I have ever eaten. The people we interacted with were generally very good and attentive. They did a fantastic job with my requirement for gluten free as there are only two dishes on the menu that are not naturally gluten free. My disappointment, and it was significant for a place of this caliber was that the generally service was poor. Things started well but after the appetizer there were 30 minutes before our next course. The server did inform us this was due to two large parties sitting just before us. When the next three courses did come out they came pretty much all at once as if they were in a rush to get it all out to us. I would have preferred some time to enjoy each of them as intended, not have them all sitting on the table. And one of them was incorrect. We mentioned this and the server checked and said "no that is what you ordered" We certainly know we didn't request squid but they seemed to either no care or not want to deal with remaking what we wanted. We ultimately ate it and it was fantastic. Food was not the problem here. But for a restaurant of this caliber to know how to pace their dishes, not know how to pace the food and deal with reservations properly and then bring us the wrong dish with no apology is not acceptable. The food was so good I would be willing to go back to give them another go and see if these were one off issues or something that is more typical.

Food is almost excellent. Each dish was quite sophisticated tastes. Traditional Thai cuisine was sublimated to the world's most advanced cuisine with excellent ingredients. However, as valentine's day dinner, it was so much expensive. It does not match the price. The atmosphere of the restaurant is good. But too cold. It was overcooled in the room. Moreover, the couple sits down next table lacked delicacy. They spoke loudly.

What a disappointment. Is this a Michelin star restaurant? Really? Service was awful - they forgot to serve the duck dish that we ordered (rich red curry of duck with snake fruit, sour yellow eggplant and chilli leaves), and after we mentioned that they said that they were sorry but the kitchen is already closed. It is a dish especially recommended by Michelin by the way. We were so disappointed (especially in light of the poor other dishes...) but our hosts were not at all impressed or offered any compensation. Ah, they did say that they will not charge us for a salad that we ordered. When we asked to see the manager we were told that she left an hour ago. Now about the food - Tom Yum soup so sour and hot. No balance of tastes. Almost inedible. A dish of stir-fried Wagyu beef (“angry beef” stir-fry with wagyu beef young coconut shoots, basil, and green peppercorns) was actually an oily long-cooked meat dish with over hot curry paste and clusters of peppercorn. This dish was almost inedible as well and looked quite awful too. And I wish to emphasize that my wife and I love Thai food and enjoyed the great food Bangkok has to offer (and the remarkable Thai service that goes along with it). Bottom line - from our experience at Nahm - bad food, bad service at high prices. A Michelin star restaurant NOT !!!!

This is a standard hotel restaurant. This is not even a Top 500 best contender. If you need a large, new restaurant with good food and standard service for regularly overpriced prices (i.e., normal for a hotel), this is one option. If you think this is anything even close to the experience and food you receive from other Top 50 (e.g., Gaggan) you will be let down.

This was a disaster (that's putting it mildly). The food is mediocre (at best), the service is abysmal. And incredibly overpriced. Needs to lose Michelin NOW. No wonder the place was only 25% occupied on a Friday night! Very, very sad. For anyone reading this, please try the following alternatives: Suppanigga, Erawan Team Room, and for something slightly fancier - Basil at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit.

The food and service at Nahm were amazing. We ordered the tasting menu and the only disappointment was that I was expecting many small dishes served in succession - things started out well with amuse-bouches, followed by a variety of appetizers, but then came full size mains and accompaniments all served at once - too much food on the table at once - would have preferred more dishes and smaller portion sizes.

Really looked forward to this. Great reviews in The Lonely Planet Guide. Michelin star restaurant. The service was very nice. From there on it was downhill.Sadly a most underwhelming experience at an extremely heavy cost. The “tasting menu “ was not really a tasting menu . It just made you over order. I’m sure the lychees in the lamb curry were tinned. Putting a supplement on a dish and then serving up 50% bones is disgraceful. The Michelin Guide should review this place and remove the star if they have the same experience.

Nahm is a nice restaurant - but the tasting menu doesn’t really make sense as the portions are much too large, and the food is either too spicy or too plain, making for an unusual balance of flavors. There were some wins, like the duck curry, but overall it didn’t resonate with us as one of the world’s best restaurants.

A lot of money for food that was ok but certainly not spectacular. We took a special menu (2800,- baht pp, ex service and tax, so 7000,- in the end!!) and it was all served to us in less than an hour. Pitty because we really looked forward to an stunning experience. We had a bottle of average quality which was 2500 baht, with service and tax 3000, and it really felt as way overpriced. So no more Nahm for us please...

Overall experience wa good. Food was tasty, and we enjoyed the ingredient variations on Thai classics. The presentation and dishes used though was too simple for the price and experience of the meal. Atmosphere and decor was not interesting. I would have enjoyed more of a variety of flavors for the dessert instead of a theme with one flavor. Or optionally to have a theme ingredient but add in other flavors as well.

Our experience was simply awful. We have eaten at this restaurant many times in the past with the old chef and it was spectacular. Now it taste like a crappy Chinese food restaurant. Everything had a bad taste to it over salty food not cooked properly rice with starchy, how do you mess up rice in a Thai restaurant? This new chef should be ashamed of yourself and this hotel should also question whether or not they want to have her around as it tarnishes the brand tremendously. Both of us couldn’t believe how the food went so downhill . We used to recommend this restaurant to everybody and now I will tell them to avoid it at all costs. You will see from other reviews that I’m not the only one that notes the decline in the quality and taste which is so sad as this used to be a wonderful spectacular amazing restaurant. It is no longer that - don’t waste your money or your time as there are many many other great restaurants in Bangkok to dine at.

This was actually the worst service we experienced in any restaurant in Bangkok. The meal pacing was poor, the staff seemed uninterested, and the food ended up being underwhelming. I will say our expectations were higher considering they have a Michelin Star. However, I have eaten at other Michelin Star restaurants around the world and this simply did not compare. Was overall disappointed by this experience and would not recommend this to my friends traveling to Bangkok as I do not feel this is worth the effort to visit.

Staff can be a little challenging .... much better experience on our first encounter on the service side... but that all pales next to the beautiful and nouvelle approach to Thai cuisine ....outstanding ... trust the kitchen and go with a tasting menu...definitely best in its class...the chef should be celebrated chapeau and Mille gratzie for her efforts!

A stunning lunch. Nahm has a relaxed,cool vibe. Minimalist decor. It felt immediately welcoming on our arrival. The staff struck an ideal balance between attentiveness and discretion. All spoke excellent English. The food was beyond criticism. We ate a number of Thai specialties. Delicate appetisers beautifully presented with superb balance of flavours. A Tom Yum Goong was the best I have eaten in Thailand. The house specialty of lamb curry was very nice, though a little bit short of the “wow” that I might have expected from a premium priced dish. The final bill came to £175, including starter cocktails and 4 glasses of reasonable wine. Expensive by Thai standards, perhaps, but reasonable for an international gastronomic restaurant. I eat too many forgettable meals. This one, however, I will remember for a long time and for all the right reasons.

Below average Thai food. I don’t doubt they use quality ingredients but the flavors just weren’t there. Dined at David Thompson’s Sydney restaurant and that clearly outshines this. It must be tough to turn Thai food into a fine diner but honestly the street food vendors scattered around Bangkok do it with more flavor and punch.

Worst experience ever. Both the flavor and presentation are disaster. The flavor is only acid and spice with Thai herbs. It’s good to have first dish for this (but no surprise, just the same as street food), but then you will have 7 dishes for exactly same flavor......no mater what meat I choose, same taste, cuz u cannot feel the texture! The the presentation! I cannot say any other words then something start with f! That’s what you paid 250 dollars for. And it’s just worth 50 at most. Don’t rate it Asia top 10 or world top 50 or one star! Shame on u, nahm!

Nahm was simply amazing. We did the set menu and each dish was superb. But the star of the show for me was the southern yellow curry of blue swimmer crab with betel leaves and calamansi. The Texures and Flavours of Pandon dessert was extraordinary as well. The service was excellent led by our server, Dao, who made experience all the more special. She and the team at Nahm are first rate all the way. I will definitely go back the next time I’m in Bangkok.
