There have been many restaurants serving Western style set meals before, some with 9 or 10 dishes. To now, the most famous one is Cest Bon in Chitlom, serving French cuisine, 9 French dishes still attract many customers. Apart from Cest Bon, there is another restaurant on Sukhumvit Soi 39 serving similar set meal and has won many prizes.
Whale’s Belly Restaurant & Bar serves 9 modern Western dishes. It is located on the second floor of a building, the restaurant is painted in blue, it is designed like you are dining inside the belly of a whale. The restaurant is elegant and comfortable. You do not need to wait for too long for the food to come. The whole meal lasts around one and a half hour.
When the guests sit down, they are given some warm bread, chicken liver paste and butter, then 9 dishes will gradually be served. Nine dishes include appetizers, hors d’oeuvres, main course, etc. The containers and presentations of the dishes are very thoughtful.
The average cost of a meal here is about 1900 baht. I have eaten here before, although the portion is small, I felt full after having nine dishes. It is noted that this restaurant only serves dinner and fusion western food. There is a dress code here, no vests and shorts.
