Dining options: Reservations
Neighbourhood: Asoke
Description: The idea for Le Vendôme was first conceived by a group of people who shared a common love of two key factors. Firstly their love and passion for the Parisian chic Place Vendôme and the lifestyle values it represented. Secondly to have an authentic modern French restaurant that uses the finest ingredient yet serves the best food at affordably prices. With these core values Le Vendôme opened it doors on the ground floor of M-Thai Tower on Wireless Road Bangkok in 2004.

The atmosphere was very classic with nice background music. We ordered a la carte dishes for dinner. The amuse bouche was not really amused as the fish meat was not very tender. Nevertheless, even before we finished the complimentary plate, the waiter and waitress was each holding one soup waiting to serve a foot behind us. We were so shocked as this has never happened to us in every fine dining experience we have had.
The dark truffle soup infused with fresh foie gras was tasty, but could be a bit hotter, maybe due to the waiting time.
The wild Tasmanian trout was average but the slow confit duck leg was superb with tender meat, cripsy skin and marvellous sauce.

Very good service and very good coffee! We walked 15mins from Terminal21 and had lunch there on a Fri. Just walk in is ok as there are only 2-3 other tables are occupied. Food portion is not big, as expected and we are satisfied. I ordered chicken, quite tender, but my friend ordered lamb which she said it's not in high standard. When we leave the waiter offered us to call taxi, good service, though we want to walk and don't need that.

We stumbled upon this restaurant late last year and made a vow to visit here soon since it the ambiance looked lovely. We finally made it here tonight and wish we hadn't. First off, the restaurant interior is still lovely as before. It's just that the food is so bad. We were seated at 7pm to an empty restaurant and were presented with the alcoholic and dinner menus which actually looked very nice; there were many options for the set menu as well as a la carte and the food descriptions looked interesting. However, we knew we were in trouble when we asked our server what he recommended and he replied with an 'up to you' ! That's never a good omen for the food itself when your server isn't helpful in navigating the menu. We ended up with the starters of the fois gras terrine and the rocket salad. The salad dressing on the rocket salad was extremely bitter and difficult to finish. The terrine tasted extremely bland and lacked seasoning. Next we tried the fois gras ravioli and the escargot which both tasted horrific. The fois gras lacked any taste at all as well as the ravioli. The same applied to the escargot. We quickly paid the bill and went to another restaurant down the street to rid our taste of this place. We'll never be back !
