it's just absolutely delicious not like anywhere else. Love to bring my friends and families there. My favorite menu is probably: cold pasta, Chilean Sebass, Wagyu beef, and the Apple tart. These are the menus that I have to order every time I go there lol.

Was here last for valentines day dinner, although I do eat there on many occasions. The decor is elegant, distinct, and graceful. Chef Mirko is a real talent and I am a big fan of his cuisine. From the outside in, a look at some of Water Library's dishes may look similar to other fine dining establishments around the world,... More

I am a regular at this restaurant and every time I go I am amazed by the quality of the food. Always beautifully crafted dishes, with amazing ingredients and amazing taste. Restaurant interior is beautiful and completely fits the quality of the food. Only comment I could make, it is in a shopping mall a bit hard to find.

This is the best food we ate in Bangkok. Everything since we walked in was the best. All of the staff was aware of the table, talking to us and take care of us.

The location is definitely strange, with the entrance through the mall down a empty hallway. But once you enter the restaurant the fit out is excellent, the bar area as well as the windows are impressive. I had the set menu with wine, and found the food to be on a par with some of the good restaurants throughout Europe,... More

This restaurant is very pretty. There is in fact a `Water Library' in the middle of the restaurant which makes a great centrepiece. The restaurant also has a water list as well as a wine and cocktail list. My wife and I had the degustation restaurant and it was truly amazing.

So many times there, their food and service are very consistency and up to three stars Michelin standard. The only thing I can complain is the wash room, it's not inside the restaurant. My commend for this restaurant only one word "Fabulous"
