After successfully turning her brand into one of Thailand’s leading luxury spa and aromatherapy houses, Sririta Jensen, the sole proprietor and managing director of Orkanika House, decided to venture into food scene with the opening of Organika Sanctuary at Baan Silom. The restaurant still remains true to the core value of the brand, with a focus on stimulating the five senses: taste, sight, smell, hearing and touch.
As you step foot inside the glasshouse-looking venue, you’re hit by the relaxing scents wafting from the products lining alcoves in the wall, as well as clean and elegant interiors one would come to expect of Organika. The structure houses a spa on the second floor and the restaurant on the first.
The mostly white and marbled dining room serves up typical Western comfort fare, some of which are injected with a Thai twist. You have pasta and crepes—comfort food made of the finest ingredients whipped up by head chef Wichit "Nine" Auparakaew, who was formerly with casual dining space Harvey and brunch spot Crepes & Co. The food is barely seasoned, allowing the real flavors of the ingredients to shine through. A must-try is the seafood crepe (B380), which comes with a rich white sauce, or the herb-crusted sea bass (B430), an oven-roasted dish served with a citrus sauce, baby carrots, grilled asparagus and mashed sweet potatoes.
The dessert menu features more than a few health-inclined treats. There’s the Organika rose tea-infused poached whole pear with aloe vela jelly (B370) and an Instagram-worthy apple crumble (B295).
The drinks are a bit expensive, but the presentation and quality make up for the steep prices. We particularly like the hot chocolate marshmallow (B245), an organic dark hot chocolate topped with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. If you want something lighter, try one of their house-made teas (B295).
