I want to go again when I visit Bangkok. It was very delicious coconut soup and curry. If you need quiet and sophisticated lunch, I recommend this restaurant.

Fabulous food, everything we had was delicious. The set menu is a great option - allows you to choose a set number of dishes from across the menu so you get plenty of variety. The service was excellent, very friendly and professional staff. Our only slight criticism was that the food all comes out very quickly - we were in and out in less than an hour and a half! Would have been nice to be served at a more leisurely pace but otherwise can’t fault it, fantastic choice for a special occasion (so much so we went back two days later!)

Pictoresque sitting, especially outside with view on the pool. Service was outstanding. However, food not so special. The food is very European. I mean it's Thai dishes but how a European would adapt them to his taste. I liked it, especially some dishes of the tasting menue (100usd) had a very good texture balance. Presentation was alright. Too pricey for what you get. Is a good place for a date.

We were so disappointed with the new chef at Nahm. Nahm was our favorite restaurant in Asia in 2017. This time we were severely disappointed. They have succumbed to dumbing down the Thai spice to accommodate tourists and we felt like we were dining in a touristy hotel restaurant. We have more authentic Thai tasting food at our neighborhood restaurant in Santa Cruz, California. We had to ask for more spice and were told to “be careful” when they brought out a small bowl of chili powder. After two tablespoons of this red powder—we still couldn’t detect much heat. The old Nahm seemed authentic, this Nahm still has creative dishes but everything lacked flavor. The staff is not well trained anymore—cocktail glasses not removed, rice brought cold, a grilled squid dish was cold, flavorless and weird, and cocktails tasted watered down. I expected high prices but I also wanted authentic Thai flavors. Most Thai people cannot afford these prices and so the chef obviously is catering to visitors who do not appreciate true Thai spice. I am critical, as we had been looking forward to the meal we had a year before. Everything seemed different now, and everything lacked flavor. I did complain and they comped desserts and comped our watered down cocktails—but that is not enough for me to return. They could have fixed the situation by simply bringing chili oil or other very hot spice to the table that the guest could add. This new chef is cooking for tourists who should stay at home if they don’t enjoy real Thai food. Nahm has changed—better Thai food is found next door at Baan Khanitha or the elegant Celadon in the Sukhothai Hotel. Nahm is NOT one of the best restaurants in Asia anymore...they have listened to the tourists who do not appreciate authentic Thai spice.

Food was incredibly overpriced and does not have a mildly spicy option. When both drinks were made incredibly sweet, they offered to take back our drinks and charge us for another an additional two despite us having drank only a little bit.

The chef's creative interpretation of Thai cuisine.

I find the flavours to be clean and mild. I think whilst foreigners and tourists like myself may find such interpretation and presentation of Thai cuisine to be interesting and novel, locals may find them to be over simplified and not a true representation of traditional Thai cuisine.

It was however a good introduction and interesting approach to Thai cuisine.

We’ve eaten here before and it was amazing, hence another visit. Disappointed this time. Loads of staff but really spotty service - empty cocktail glass left on our table all meal, only filling my husbands wine glass and ignoring mine. Food was tasty, but arrived at odd times - soup was served with rice for the mains, but no mains until rice was nearly cold. Must be honest and say that I was surprised to find they still have a star, but prices reflect it. Apparently large group in, hence strange service, not what I’d expect from them at all.

We expected a bit more of this restaurant. Cocktails where great and service friendly but not super professional. Food was ok but as we had to pay 21000 bath for the 3 of us for some Thai dishes?!?! De coquille was nice and the porkcheek extremely dry. I expected more fancy dishes of this restaurant. I have eaten better in other places where we pay 100bath.
Not very happy and overpriced! The restaurant is beautiful 👌. I think Michelin asia is a little different than Europe?!
Thank you

Unforgettable experience! It was the very best in fine Thai dining in every way. New Nahm superchef Pim Techamuanvivit is a genius with putting together tastes, textures and unexpected palate pleasures. She personally came to our table several times and made us feel we were coddled celebrities! The tasting menu was not expensive at all compared to what we’d pay in New York. And it was divine!

Food was decent but the value wasn’t there and a few dishes fell short.

Paid nearly $400 AUD for two cocktails, glass of wine, water and two tasting menus. I felt the dishes were not as spicy and confronting (in a good way) as a restaurant such as Khua Kling Pak Sod. I think I was expecting a bit more from Nahm due to the big ticket pricing.

Canapés and entrees were superb. The pork dish in the soup course lacked balance, with the pork just not working in the dish. Relish dish with prawns and chao om omelette was delicious. Angry beef dish was decent and yellow curry of crab was also good. Desserts were a major let down - I’m just not a fan of multiple ‘tastes’ for dessert. Whilst showing great technique, four separate bites of pandan and coconut just aren’t for me.

Service was excellent, faultless throughout.

If I had the chance to eat here again I’d probably go a la carte. Price tag on the tasting menu was just not worth the cost and provided limited value.

One of our best culinary experiences. Definitely worth a visit. Tasting menu gives good value and really takes you on a “tasting tour” of Thai cuisine with creative dishes. Even if setting is nice, atmosphere does not match the quality of food. But not a deal-breaker.

The place was beautiful but that’s about it! The tasting menu looked interesting but the dishes had too many complex spices that covered the taste of the seafood and made it weird, not at all tasty. The presentation was okay but we had no idea what we were eating most of the time as the server’s English was almost incomprehensible! For the price I definitely would not return nor recommend as there are many restaurants that offer tastier, more authentic cuisine!

We had the tasting menu. My preference with a tasting menu is the chef decides the menu. We still had to choose and I don't believe our choices were cohesive. The overall meal felt very heavy, spicy and not enough contrast between dishes.
The meal was ok, but no better than any other meal we had in Bangkok, and considering the price and global ranking in restaurants, my expectations were high.
Pigeon was probably the standout dish.
Service was attentive, but when I asked for recommendations for food, seemed non-committal in what to recommend.
