Grottino, 9-10 Sukhumvit, Soi 19, Bangkok


Can anybody remember when the Fondue was in fashion.  No?  Our final evening in Bangkok was spent in the Grottino, a Swiss owned and run restaurant in Soi Wattana off Sukhumvit. It is typical Swiss decor with large round wooden tables and chairs to match.  The manager Mr Winkler made sure we were comfortably installed and checked on the service throughout the evening.

If you have visited Germany or Switzerland you may well be aware of the Ungarische Goulaschsuppe which is a firm favourite of the region.  It is more like a beef casserole with plenty of paprika added.  The one served here would grace the best I have had and was served with their own home made Swiss style brown bread.  There was white as well!

As a main course we went for the beef  fondue for two, which turned out to be served with a side salad with a choice of French or Italian dressings, a collection of dips, olives, gherkins and silverskin onions, fine cut fries.  The beef is prime Australian.  All in all there was enough for at least three! The quality and service left nothing to be desired.

They have a good choice of wines and also do have imported Bitburger Pils.

Our friends, who use the restaurant on a regular basis, had the schnitzels and as their plates were empty one assumed they were satisfied too.
