What's it all about? Twin brothers Mathias and Thomas Sühring meld flavours, techniques and experiences accumulated in their native Germany, as well as the Netherlands, Italy and Thailand, under one modish roof. The result is a sophisticated – and at times playful – seasonal haute cuisine menu with strong German identity.

What’s the vibe? Step through the luscious front garden to a 1970s villa renovated by the twins. It’s a blissful and calming breath of fresh air in Thailand’s energetic capital. Some tables overlook the open kitchen while others enjoy the tropical landscape courtesy of the glass-ceilinged atrium.

Typical dishes: European influence is welcomed in a city known for racy spices, and strong plates on the menu include Aal Grün, smoked eel with cucumber, dill and pike roe; a take on the regional German vegetable dish Leipziger Allerlei, with Brittany lobster, white asparagus, peas and morels; a currywurst street food tribute served in a box complete with wooden fork; and spaetzle egg noodles topped with Allgäuer mountain cheese and crispy onion , all inciting plenty of German culinary nostalgia.

Worth noting: Sühring now forms part of the Relais & Châteaux league of top establishments, and has held on to two Michelin stars since 2018. Embrace the full German experience with the wine pairing comprising glasses from Pfalz, Nahe and Franconia.
