From the January-February 2015 issue of the gorgeous DestinAsian magazine:

“Holding the 37th spot on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list, this Silom hot spot isn’t new. In fact, it’s 16 years old—ancient in Bangkok years—but has remained au courant thanks to a team with their fingers on the pulse. Australian Darren Hausler and food stylist sister Cherie opened this local institution when there was little in the area except food stalls. The good-looking retro space would be a grand old dame if it weren’t for frequent nips and tucks by American designer Kelly Wheatley of Lump, whose handcrafted furniture is made from recycled wood and vintage fabric. Chef Tim Butler (formerly of New York’s Daniel) continually tweaks his seasonal menu of fine produce-driven cuisine that Hausler broadly labels “modern, international, regional.” Try the Australian saltbush lamb rack with broad bean, mint, and charred lemon. Star “mixultant” Joseph Boroski is responsible for the classic cocktails.”
