One Michelin Star Thai restaurant – Paste

Paste is a one Michelin star restaurant located on the 3rd floor of the Gaysorn Village. The head chef, Bee Satongun, is dedicated to restoring and preserving the traditional Thai cuisine while adding some modern touch. The interior of the restaurant is contemporary Thai decor with a large centerpiece of sinuous strips of silkworm cocoons. The high ceiling, airy dining space, and warm colors create a comfortable dining experience. The staff wore traditional Thai inspired attires.

The amuse bouche was exquisite – rich umami flavor.

Old style hot & sour soup of crisp pork leg, char-grilled shallots,
jackfruit seeds, roasted tomatoes in a smoky chicken broth.

The soup was lovely, very appetizing. It was tangy, smokey with a reasonable amount of heat.

with roasted mung bean and drum stick flowers

The fish was very fresh and tender. The curry was a little bland for me, I would have preferred a spicier intense flavored curry.

Complimentary orange sorbet

The sorbet was a sweet, refreshing ending to the meal.

 

Overall, attentive service and excellent quality food. However, I have mixed feelings about the restaurant. I was not blown away by the food, the dishes did not justify the price for me. I was expecting more from a one Michelin star restaurant.
