An inventive interplay of Thai flavors and textures, guiding the diner on a gastronomic exploration of noble and provincial Thai dishes.
The guiding philosophy at Paste is to maintain an ever-changing seasonal menu, showcasing the very best native produce. The chefs, Bongkoch “Bee” Satongun and Jason Bailey, continually researches, tests and polishes historical recipes and traditions. Don’t expect molecular or fusion flourishes as they stick to local herbs, fruits and vegetables used in their dishes.
MUST TRY: Northern larb salad of Royal Project pheasant with mak-wean pepper, cloves, hog plum leaves and Royal Project edible flowers.
The double-height window panes facing Central World make for an impressive backdrop for the minimal decor and handful of showpieces: giant strips of silkworm cocoons rising up to the ceiling, glass domes housing leafy arrangements and circular nooks formed by sculptural banquettes. The place is in a mall and a walk through Gaysorn’s corridors is not a fun way to start a meal.
Service by Thai waiting staff is refined, professional and friendly. You can really feel husband and wife chefs Bailey and Satongun’s creativity and personality business, which is not always the case at other traditionalist restaurants.
Paste’s plating is equally becoming: relaxed and effortless despite a painterly attention to color. While paste occasionally looks to Bailey’s homeland of Australia when it comes to finding a good beef cheek or ocean trout dish, it otherwise sticks to the authentic Thai cuisine, while offering something new and beautiful.
Well decoration, nice service, private corner, good wine and delicious food – it’s definitely a fine dining experience you should not miss when you are in town.
