We went ahead with Baan Rim Pa Kalim, bearing in mind the comments here on its price-point. Yes, this place is on the high-end; but my husband wanted a pretty, peaceful Birthday dinner treat for me. Our family of 7 was given a corner table, right in front of the ocean. The Phuket vegetable dip platter gave a spicy kick; we'd ordered various dishes to share (a highlight is the fried fish). Wine is higher priced here (so go with cocktails :) We received a mango sticky rice dessert (in the shape of a heart) for the birthday song. What made this review move up to 5 stars is the memorable interactions with Louise (their pianist, who could play songs we requested from memory, and always with a smile. Jazz standards, some classics, you name it...he made the night extra special).
