Time Out says
Guests are taken to a whole new world at REI Bar, the newest bistro in the heart of Old Town Bangkok. Behind grills and a thin wall of glass is a futuristic space where Oriental-inspired images are projected on concrete walls and neon-lit LED lamps cast an eerie glow.
The food, just like the vibes, also have a show of cool. Michelin-starred chef Andy Yang is behind REI’s culinary offerings, serving up dishes like cheek of buri (Japanese amberjack) grilled with soy sauce (B315) and spicy salmon salad (B195).
Other recommended small bites are the tako wasabi (B115), grilled pork jowl marinated in fish sauce (B175), and the REI fried chicken (B295 for 10 pieces). Every dish is meant to be paired with a cold beverage or one of REI’s signature cocktails.
Guests are welcome to chillax on the ground floor, but small groups can reserve a private corner on the second floor, which looks down on the crowd below. Live music goes on full blast every Friday and Saturday night.
There aren’t too many bistros with a modern futuristic vibe in Bangkok, which makes REI Bar unique and a definite must-visit.
