During brunch I can hear very loud traditional Thai music. My interest is piqued and I venture out. There is a Thai performance by two dancers. Brilliant. The grace and skills that they display takes one away to another place. Happy.
I try a couple of Thai dishes - the tom yam goong and bowl of noodles. Both are excellent, with the spicy tom yum following up my delicately flavored noodles very nicely. Other Thai dishes available include Kaho soy gai (another noodle dish), Nuea pad Nammuhoy (stir fried beef in oyster sauce) and of course Gang kiew wan gai (green Thai curry).
Finally, before dessert, I visit The Californian station where there is an inviting array of New Orleans BBQ items. However, I opt for the veal, which turns out a bit too overcooked for my taste. My daughter has the ribs, which are more robust in flavour. She loves it.
The service at the brunch is very good. The staff are well trained and try their best to anticipate the needs of guests. because we were seated in Benjarong, I had a real feeling of having a dedicated waitress because it is not as open as typical brunches. Another strength for this Friday brunch.
