Let’s Face it, not only is this an intimate setting, but the food is reminiscent of both traditional and modern elements of upscale Asian cuisine and atmosphere. Face Restaurant is another example of Asian hospitality at its best. Travel back in time and enjoy this cultural heritage with a historical twist of Face.
Face Restaurant is a large sprawling restaurant with five sections you can enjoy by day or night. 1) Misaki – Japanese Sushi Bar, 2) Face Cocktail Bar, 3) Lanna Thai – Thai Cuisine, 4) Hazara, – Indian Cuisine, and 5) Spa @Face. I had the pleasure of dining in Lanna Thai, Face Bar, and Hazara.
How to get there?
Accessible via BTS, take Sukhumvit line to Thong Lor BTS station and take Exit 4. Walk past the food stall vendors situated on Soi 38 and Face Restaurant (white wall) will be located on the left hand side of the Soi. Ask reception to call a taxi on your behalf.
Why Face? What I Swear By…
From the time of arrival to exit, the service is personal and attentive. Highly recommend going early, take a tour around the premises to explore all the rustic nooks, bring camera, and/or plan to visit two sections of the restaurant. If you have good knees, pretend like you’re on a Silk trade route and reserve (in advance) the famous seated bed.
It’s a one of kind experience. Perfect fine dining option for first-timers to Bangkok or romantic dinner for couples.
Décor is a fusion of Indian, Thai, and Burmese cultures. Timeless traditions in the heart of Soi 38 make this sanctuary stunning. The collection of museum-type artifacts are symbolic in nature accompanied by the beauty of outdoor pools and gardens adds a sense of calm and tranquility.
Authentic Thai-style teak house with an open layout of bright colored paintings and walls containing, rich detailed woodwork and local crafts. Throughout the restaurant, various artifacts add a symbolic presence and reminder of Thai traditions.
Come to the restaurant hungry, decide on your palette ahead of time, and pace yourself because it’s a lot of food. TIP: Restaurant takes an afternoon break from 2-4pm.
