Time Out says

After 8 years of running, restaurant Berlin, located on the hill of Itaewon’s Noksapyeong entrance, has transformed into a Thai restaurant So Wat focusing on cuisine from the Isaan region. This northeastern region is known for their higher level of spice in much of their dishes. One of their representative dishes would be the Som Tam (also known as the green papaya salad). Made with shredded unripe papaya, dried shrim, chili, ground peanuts, lime and most importantly fish sauce to complete the fresh and savory salad. Roasted chicken with rice is another staple of the region. The Isaan sausage, spicy and sour at the same time, is yet another specialty and one that you can enjoy at So Wat. With extensive experience with Buddha’s Belly, So Wat is a restaurant that not only serves great authentic Thai cuisine, but makes you feel like you are in a chic and modern restaurant in Bangkok. Complete with chairs made with Jim Thompson fabrics, antiques and decorative item brought directly from Thailand, So Wat is the new hot spot for food, great scenery of the Noksapyeong intersection and a great vibe day and night.
