The restaurants we ranked out of ★★★★★ this month.

A (very welcome) return to Silom's most stuck-in-time bistro; the rediscovery of a forgotten Soi Thaniya sushi joint; a trip to On Nut for Mexican; and a trip to Ari for pork knuckle—those are just some of the food adventures BK's had this month, and here's what we thought of them. Like always, each of these reviews was conducted anonymously and to our exacting food review standards (you can read about those here). If you have any questions or you want to disagree with us, email it to editor@asia-city.co.th. Your response might even end up in print. Now tuck in!
 

Indigo ★★★★

"The wood-raftered dining room sags with marginally-sloshed customers most hours of the day. They come for carafes of Cotes du Rhone at B780, terrine de foie gras sliced like its going out of fashion, and food comas by way of cream and meat."

El Marachi Taqueria ★★★

"For the most part, husband and wife duo Abel Coutino Castilla (from Chiapas, Mexico) and Donaya Siamwalla (from Thailand) stick to real-deal Latino food, with only the occasional North American twist."

Kika ★★★

"Kika is onto a good thing when not trying to be too cute. With a little restraint (hold fire on the cold cuts) you can also get away with dinner and drinks for not too far beyond B1,000/head."

Man Fu Yuan Kitchen ★★★

"Man Fu Yuan Kitchen exudes a calmness that’s far removed from the din of, say, Tim Ho Wan. The kitchen is a notch above, too, excelling in flavors and texture."

Matoi Sushi ★★★

"The Matoi experience is a world away from perfection. The pickled ginger is too sweet, the sake could do with being cooler and the rice too stodgy. But this is a restaurant with character—and we’re always willing to venture behind a dark doorway in search of that."

Tiny Cup ★★★

"Tiny Cup is what happens when a Thonglor cafe lasts long enough to accumulate five years’ worth of food trends. For every avocado toast, there’s a purple-sweet-potato cheese tart; for every acai berry smoothie bowl, there’s an egg and chorizo skillet."

Schneider Haus ★★

"There are certainly better places in town to gnaw on pork knuckle and knock back heavy beers, but Schneider Haus’s offerings are good enough to leave you feeling full and a little wobbly."

Zoom Sky Lounge ★★

"As we sat watching the hotel’s shadow fall on Chan Road, surrounded by the leftovers of what was not a cheap meal, we couldn’t help wishing we’d joined the tourists at the buffet."
