Paste (Gaysorn Plaza)
This Thai restaurant in the luxurious Gaysorn mall gives new life to classic recipes.
Before you book, a few caveats. The place is in a mall (even if it is easy to forget once you’re inside) and a walk through Gaysorn’s corridors is not a fun way to start a meal—neither is an empty dining room. Does it have to do with the prices? Appetizers are mostly B300-390, mains B500-750. The sets are gargantuan but ring in at B950 for lunch (per person, 2 diners minimum) or B1,600/1,900 for dinner (per person, 4 diners minimum). And do note that water comes in the shape of B190-plus-plus bottles of Vittel—French water with Thai food, really? At those prices, the tables’ cheap and chipped laminate deserves mention, as does the absence of the pastry chef on our last visit—not that dessert is included in any of the aforementioned sets. Nitpicking aside, Paste deserves much, much more recognition for its superlative offerings.
