Give it a swirl.
The buzz: The first restaurant in Yen Akart’s small new dining complex Yarden, Akart Bistro joins Coffee Craftsman cafe with a lineup of Bangkok comfort-food staples.
The decor: Akart Bistro sits in the same 70-year-old villa as Coffee Craftsman, taking up residence in an extension added to the house sometime later. Still, it retains the same craftsy, old-world vibe courtesy of charming wooden-framed windows which run across three walls of the space, along with the tastefully rustic furniture creations of Niiq. Elsewhere it’s all hanging ferns and a few marble tables—an aesthetic which somehow this part of town has been lacking till now. Very family-friendly.
The food: Something for everyone, basically. You can start with cold cuts, cheese and oysters before moving onto pasta and pizza, and then get a steak for your main course. They of course have a massive Australian black Angus tomahawk (from B3,000/1.2kg) on top of lamb saddle with red wine and mint sauce (B850). Or you can go with something very comforting and Thai. Dishes like the grass noodles spicy salad (B250) show added creativity thanks to the butterfly-pea blue tint and quality seafood, while their pad Thai fused with crispy oyster omelet (B280) works surprisingly well. Do get some Thai-twisted bingsu (shaved ice) too, available in bua loy and tub tim krob flavors.
The drinks: Both coffee and herbal drinks can be topped with fluffy cotton candy for B120. Wine starts at B990/bottle.
Why you should care: Yen Akart is on the rise. This is a new peaceful oasis in the downtown where you can get something easy and have a good time with your loved ones. It’s got the vibes.
