Though a great food capital, Bangkok has a chink in its culinary armour: there are too few sublime, upscale Thai restaurants. This ambitious newcomer tries to redress that. Inside a secluded, wood-panelled house, Bo.lan aims high with smooth service, a wine list to pair with Thai food, and degustation menus to demonstrate their considerable kitchen skills, honed at David Thompson's Nahm in London. With some inconsistencies ironed out, Bo.lan will demand international respect.
