nahm Ratings and Reviews
Als eines der Top 50 Restaurants der Welt war die Erwartungshaltung sehr hoch, sie wurde nicht ganz erfüllt. Dagegen trifft die Michelin Bewertung (1Stern) viel besser. Tolles Ambiente, autentisches Essen, alles prima.
Das Gaggan ist allerdings eine andere Klasse, bei allem Respekt.
Trotzdem: immer wieder hingehen.
We eat at a lot of Thai Restaurants, and were expecting great things from Nahm. The aroma of the dishes was spectacular, and we asked our waiter about the heat of the dishes we were considering before ordering. Unfortunately, this place does not seem to cater to a western palette, even one which eats a lot of spicy food. Two of the 3 dishes we ordered were inedible - we could tell they had amazing ingredients, but they were completely overwhelmed by Chilli that only the most seasoned Thai food eater could possibly handle. Staff were useless with this, and offered no help. Table across the restaurant had similarly disappointed (and much more vocal) customers. Unless you are used to eating the hottest of hot food, AVOID! What a disappointment - but fortunately there are many other great restaurants in Bangkok we have enjoyed.
While the service was top notch we were very disappointed with the food - particularly the main dishes. The portions were oddly large and seemed very oily and lacking in flavor. We ordered the fixed menu for four. They brought us a ton of food but we didn’t even get to try each dish as three out of four of us had uneasy stomachs following the main course. I would not recommend this restaurant. Based on the food it’s hard to know how it is ranked so highly.
We went to nahm for our final dinner of our holiday. The restaurant has a very fine modern interior, still it is way to cold there. The food was delicious but the main course was very plain. Of over Bangkok you can if quite the same. The prices of the drinks were the most shocking. No bottle of wine for less than 2400 baht and a bottle of water about 330 baht. The two of us paid for 3 courses a bottle of wine and water 6740 baht. I wouldn't go their again.
The food is incredible. The setting is a bit formal, not my usual preference, but beautiful for a special occasion. The service was spot on, very attentive without being pushy, I felt very cared for the entire time. But the reason to go, of course, is the food. Every bite was divine. Beautiful curry, delicious amuse bouche, and a light cocktail were all perfect. The price is steep for the city it's in, but in the world of fine dining you get an amazing amount for your money, in regards to quality and quantity.
Over rates over priced horrible pretentious food. My first review that i have ever written. Staff was extremely nice and gave me a surprise cake for my birthday. But man was the food horrible. Some dishes were inedible and a joke. Seemed like these guys must have been great at one point in time but due to pressure of keep reinventing themselves to make the lists etc they have lost the whole plot that essentially the food has to taste good
The restaurant is good but for the price you pay I would recommend a tourist to go elsewhere as I have been to other top 50 restaurants and this definitely does not feel like one.
When I travel I try and reserve with time a top 50; but this one did not impress me as much.
Anyways, food was good but if you are on a short stay at Bangkok go elesewhere.
The food was extremely underwhelming compared to Benjorang and Bo.Lan.
Only the canapés selection and the wine list was good. Rest of the food was mediocre.
We could not eat our soup selections as they were either too spicy and/or too salty. The main courses were extremely underwhelming as the quality of meat was poor. We should have skipped the desserts as they were a disaster.
Interestingly, their service was not up to mark either. The wait staff is good but the mgmt has not thought through the details. The canapés plates were made of melamine/plastic. They did not have a soup plate under the bowl as the clumsy waiter was fumbling with the hot bowl.
The place was easy to find. It was definitely a great experience. However, the food was a bit too spicy and the recommended selections did not really go well together with the dishes we ordered. The canepe is definitely a Must try menu! I wish they would explain how to eat the foods.
If they are claiming to have a dress code for men then they need to enforce the dress code. We followed the dress code but then there were a number of men in shorts or jeans and T-shirts.
As well the tables of two along the banquet are not designed for a quite conversation as the table depths is too large.
nahm was a complete disappointment. The main meal was fine, nothing spectacular. And the dessert was abysmal. We ordered the chef's menu and the finale was Thai jelly ice (available on nearly every street for about $0.15) and a sad fruit salad (again, not as good as the fruit available freshly sliced street-side). It was actually a bit offensive. I left feeling taken advantage of. I have absolutely no idea why this restaurant has received so many accolades. Do yourself a favor and skip nahm. You can find better, more affordable and more interesting food nearly everywhere else in Bangkok.
I ate at this restaurant 2 years ago and had a very good experience.
On the back of this, I booked again for today and took my family to celebrate my sons 21st.
It was really disappointing.
We had the set menu and other than the appetisers, the relish part of the menu was poor, with the prawns being tasteless. We also ordered the whole fish, which was so overdone, it tasted of nothing. The curry was ok, with a decent spice, but the hot and sour soup was neither.
In a very respectful way, I raised my concerns with the Manager who whilst thanking me for the feedback, was not going to do anything about it.
Please be wary of this restaurant and don't believe what you read. Our 50BHt lunch today tasted so much better.
Over hyped, over priced. I had concerns about eating at a high end restaurant in Bangkok and these were realised at Nahm. I have eaten at David Thompsoms restaurants in Sydney and found these very good - expensive - but very good Thai (Australianised). The food at Nahm tasted fine but there appeared much work is put into the presentation rather than the actual food.
Give it a miss and have some good Thai street food.
We enjoyed our evening but I won't recommend it to my friends who would think they were going to a 5 star restaurant based on so called "food critics". It is too expensive to recommend to the casual diner as well when there are so many other gems in the city of angels. I must admit that the presentation of the food was gorgeous and the service was impeccable. Nahm serves "interpreted" classical Thai cuisine. My main critique of the food was that the chef succumbed to the temptation of turning up the heat just to make it "Thai" and not trusting the other ingredients. Thai food has so much more than just heat. We in fact ordered a chef's choice of mild to medium hot dishes but the medium was so hot that they overwhelmed everything else. Lest you think me skittish, I assure you that I grew up eating Thai food from palaces, embassies, and streets in Thailand. In any case, I was disappointed in Nahm.
The food is NOT worth the TERRIBLE service. They say it's one of the top restaurants in the world and although the food is great, the service does not reflect the accolade. We spent over two hours at nahm on a quiet Sunday night due to extremely slow service. The servers paid no attention as we were trying to get our check even though the table next to us got their's immediately. After that, it took just as long for them to get our cards back to us... only for them to overcharge one of the cards on accident. I believe we probably ate for an hour and waited for the check fiasco for another hour. Unacceptable for such a "top" place.
This is a hotel restaurant, but don't let that put you off. Lovely setting inside and great attentive service. Every dish was explained and tips on the best way to eat the dish(es). We had crab wafers and pork and lobster leafs to start; both dishes were delicious. Our main dishes were chicken curry with pickled vegetables, great depth of flavor in the curry. Hubby had Crab and Shrimp in coconut with fried prawns and veggies, he loved it! He left nothing to be tasted by me ;) For dessert, I always have mango and sticky coconut rice, it was very nice. My husband had tropical fruit in lemongrass syrup with Thai cupcakes, not my favorite flavor combination but he enjoyed it. I will say the Thai cupcakes were amazing. We saw them being made the day after in a street stall and bought more.
