This sexy, exotic Thai restaurant housed in a boutique hotel gives diners a fashionable, blissfully exaggerated take on Thailand. Tasteful Southeast Asian decor accents, like sparkling silks, blooming orchids, and a reflecting pool set the mood. The food itself, an inventive interpretation of Thai cuisine, has earned a Michelin Star. Do your best to secure a table on the patio terrace; the food will taste that much better if you do.
A mix of hotel guests and fashionable locals. The romantic vibes draw cooing couples, especially in the evenings.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Classy yet casual; a sleek fitted dress with glam heels and a glittering hairpiece.
GO HERE WITH
A group of friends; significant other; a date
WHY WE LIKE IT
The distinct design elements, like the freshly blooming water lilies and reflecting pool, make for a magical evening. The space sizzles.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The wait staff has a bit of an attitude, and service can run hot and cold. By day, it would be nice if they turned up the lights (except on the terrace), but it sparkles by night.
GOOD TO KNOW
Bar dining available. One of the most popular deals at Kittichai is the weekend prix fixe brunch (USD 25 for unlimited brunch cocktails and one brunch entrée), available from 11:30am-3:00pm. That said, clubbers often come here for brunch to keep the party going from the night before, so be prepared for a boisterous crowd. A dinner prix fixe menu is available for USD 35 from 5:30-7:00pm and a lunch prix fixe is available daily for USD 25. Kittichai was begun by the same power restaurateurs who founded such New York landmarks as Indochine, BondSt, and Republic.
