Though it is located in a prime area of Sukhumvit, its back-alley location is very much hidden. Meanwhile, the restaurant's space is diminutive yet very sensible, appointed behind a signless dark wood door and accessible only via a narrow flight of stairs. The dining room, which shares the restaurant's wedge-shape space with a long cocktail bar-cum-open kitchen station set along one wall, is dimly illuminated by warm yellow lighting to give a homely and, somewhat, mystical touch to the boisterous, food-driven ambience. Seating is communal style, available at low dining tables and the kitchen counter. The ingenious chef Jess Barnes and his food provide this popular establishment with its visual and culinary trademarks. His high-brow cuisine, using mainly seasonal, carefully sourced produce, is exhibited through a rough, imperfect and straightforward presentation that matches the restaurant's unique setting. The compact menu features approximately 15 dishes, and specials of the day (eight of them on this particular Friday) are written on the blackboard beneath the kitchen counter. The restaurant, owned and run by the same creators of the popular WTF bar and gallery, has quite a large and exciting list of cocktails, craft beer and wines. The restaurant can be packed even in the first few minutes of its daily operation. More than half of the clientele are returning customers and regulars. Reservations are a must. Taking public transportation is highly recommended.
