Overall good food and great ambience. The service was PERFECT! Though I was not impressed with everything that came out from the tasting menu. I think if I’d return I’d order a la carte instead.

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.

Not a restaurant I would give an award. The service was way too far from being remarkable, and the food was so spicy that the taste was lost for us, not having an alternative option not that spicy at least.
The presentation of the dishes was rough and tha plates were not replaced with each dish.
However, the bill was according to a michelin star restaurant. So expensive.

Wow! I cannot believe Nahm has a Michelin star; the not-inexpensive set (lunch) menu seemed creative enough on paper, but the execution was wanting, to say the least. I won't go into detail; but, honestly, this meal/experience was shockingly unremarkable -- given what I was expecting. I have had so many better meals at non-starred restaurants in Bangkok over the years; I definitely will not return to Nahm nor suggest it to anyone.

What a disappointment. We were excited about the new chef. No longer. I truly disliked the food. Too sour, too bland. So busy being innovative— or is it historic? Can’t tell. Very expensive evening. I miss the old menu and David Thompson. Also, it was the full moon of Waso, so no alcohol was permitted. So why not then create. Fabulous juice tasing menu to accompany the meal, such as Charlie Trotter used to do?

For a restaurant billed as world class, it falls short. The updated, refined Thai theme should be a winner, but the flavors were muddy and didn’t retain the brightness, contrasts, and freshness of even run-of-the-mill Thai restaurant cooking. Some things stood out: the Miang lobster appetizer and the Angry Beef. Service wanted to be awesome but seemed too on top of us at times. This is a very good restaurant just not an excellent one, especially at its price point.

The only thing we didn’t like was a person next to us kept taking pictures of the food with the flash on!! Was very annoying. However, the manager promptly changed our table to a different part of the restaurant.

The food was exquisite though! Thanks to the team for a great night

We 4 ladies had a very great time catching up there. Nice food and nice environment that we all enjoyed. So I would say it’s not just for happy couples dining. We were arranged at a cozy corner that we could chat free without disturbing the others. Good services.

We were excited about our visit to Nahm but were disappointed with the food. The massaman curry with lychees was the exception. The fiery beef was so hot that it was not possible to taste much other than chillis. The starter with deep fried prawns was also mediocre. The two canape starters were quite tasty. The dessert menu is non-existent--one expects more from a Michelin starred restaurant. Only afterward did we find out that the star chef had left. Check out some of the newcomers on the Bangkok restaurant scene with far more inventive and tasty food. Also, service was rushed with the server bringing out the dessert menus before clearing our dinner plates. The restaurant was not full so the rush was a bit puzzling. My prediction is that soon this will be just another over-priced hotel restaurant with mediocre food.

With the exception of 1 male waiter, the rest of the service crew's service standards were cold and unwelcoming. Food wise, it did not match to expectations of a michelin star and no.10 in asia.

Food was authentic (my partner is Thai) and every dish was full of flavour. Maître d could have been more welcoming at the door but not a big deal. Waiters were all professional and polite, special mention to David (hopefully we got his name right) from Myanmar who was very accomodating and approachable!! Had an enjoyable night but cannot say that it was very good value for money, was quite pricey so definitely only for special occasion or for tourists/expats as a destination visit restaurant :)

Food is too spicy so didn't get to enjoy so much. Or maybe i just ordered the wrong ones for my taste buds. This resto will be very much enjoyed with big groups, so you can order alot of things. Service is very good!

We ordered the set menu, and let the chef select dishes for us.
We asked for spicy, and even specified we wanted "thai spicy" but nothing was spicy.
Most of the food was extremely sweet and not well balanced. The waiter reassured us everytime hi put a new dish on the table that it was not spicy (?)
I assume that because we are westerners they just decided we can't eat spicy food - no matter what we say.

I have been to this restaurant ones before some years ago and then it was absolutely amazing. So something has changed and it is quite sad.
It still has potential, and some if the dishes were really nice. But I will not visit again.

Nahm is always a favorite when in Bangkok! Always reliable and amazing food. My favorite is the massaman lamb curry, coconut chicken soup and the durian sticky rice dessert! we will definitely be back when we visit Bangkok again :)

I love recommending this place to friends who visit Bangkok. Perfect food and excellent service!

Our dinner tonight was easily the most disappointing of our trip in Thailand. We tried the set menu for two, together with some beers and cocktails. The soups were overly salty, the duck was overcooked, the fruits/tomatoes were underripe, and several dishes had no flavor. The white rice was overcooked and soggy as well. The dessert of pandanus noodles with basmati rice tasted like soggy cereal. We were told that dishes would be spicy, and nothing was spicy at all. The drinks were underwhelming, and arguably had zero alcohol in them. For an award winning restaurant, this was by far a disappointment and I’m surprised you still maintain a Michelin Star.

To charge 8000+ baht for two set menus and drinks of poor quality is insulting. We had meals under 500 baht from small restaurants in Bangkok and throughout Thailand that were far better, fresher and more flavorful than your dishes.

Terrible ... and disppointed .
I was amazed by Nahm four years ago for the best Tom yum soup I’ve ever had. Each dishes in four years ago Made us feel so amazing , that is why we wanna go back nahm to feel this surprise again!
This time, I don’t know what happens to the restaurant, no dishes surprised me at all, every dishes tastes like not good as usual even less than restaurant Nara in Bangkok . Not recommended .......

Staff and ambiance very good, but food too spicy.

Everything we ordered was just spicy-spicy-spicy (= hot). Perhaps I went to the "wrong" restaurant (?)...but note that not everybody is into extreme spicy food only.

Even my companion, who is used to spicy food , remarked that it was too spicy.

Please, take note and 'tune it down'. If a customer asks for non-spicy food, give him what he wants....not what the chef likes !

It is a little bit disappointed for such a high ranking restaurant. We visit the restaurant at lunchtime, and the menu selection is not much. I think we can choose a la carte menu for the whole day, just additional adding lunch and weekend brunch menu.
The food itself is more like fusion Thai, the presentation is ok and the taste is a bit salty and on the spicy side. I can only taste the spices but not the fresh ingredients taste.
In order to give a more fair review, I would like to visit again at dinner time as well.
