There's never a dearth of stylish spots in the capital's flashy wining and dining capital, Thong Lor, but for a restaurant to still impress despite being in a full-throttle zone crammed with other just-as-chic venues, it's hardly doing "meh" at all.
Without a doubt, two-month-old Japanese gastrobar Kaguya is surely set to become one of the most voguish dining pads on the strip.
The 70-seater capitalises on splashes of warm lighting and wooden surfaces, but despite being heavily infused with Japanese influenced decor, the walls of bamboo rods tied together with Nipponese square lashings hardly feel oriental. It's a place where all the lighting creates a perfectly glamorous atmosphere whether you're sitting at the bar, or on dining benches or outdoor sofas, and the cosmopolitan crowd will surely do the happy dance - being in such a ritzy setting with snazzy, pumping beats.
All of this is happening while enjoying a blend of modern Japanese and French cuisines, of course.
Despite being such a hip place, the traditional dishes are still done right. The recommended menus are fuyu (3,000 baht), a large sashimi bucket with otoro, hamachi, akami, madai, shima aji, hotate (scallop), botan (prawn) and taraba (crab) cuts.
