Kuppa Cafe & Restaurant
This Australian-managed restaurant was one of the trailblazers of the stylish cafe trend to hit Bangkok. Airy and spacious, it thrives on its hip industrial style with polished cement floors, exposed ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The beautiful Thai furniture, including great lounges, means you often linger here longer than expected. The huge Kuppa Breakfast (THB250) is a great way to start the day, whilst for lunch you really cannot go past the exceptional Roast Beef Grilled Country Loaf (THB180). Dinner options are more extensive and includes Seared Duck Breast and Grilled Sirloin.
I've eaten here twice in the past six months. The food is good and the atmosphere is quite nice, even if the place is a little out of the way. The problem, and the reason I won't go back, is that the service has ranged been indifferent and quite slow (I say this as a Bangkok resident, who goes to all kinds of restaurants here). Given that the prices here are above average for this level, the service should be much much better.
Honestly, if I lived within walking distance, as some other reviewers do, I would go back occasionally. As it is, I find the value quite poor and will go to Crepes and Co, or Coffee Beans by Dao in the future
I used to live 3 minutes away from Kuppa for about 6 years, it is a nice place, it was very convenient when we didn't want to go out for dinner. The food is good, the seafood pasta, Salmon with Mango Salsa and the Duck Pizza a must, the Thai section of the menu was good but expensive when you can buy it from the street market 5 mins away just as good during the day. If you like desserts and cakes, this place is for you! Fantastic Carrot Cake and Chocolate Cake. Overall a nice place and very popular with the Expat crowd, we ate there or had a take out about once a week for 3 years.
We go to Kuppa most Sundays as its so close to home. Its a lovely place to chill for the afternoon, we've never been disappointed with the food and the service is normally great. Perhaps when they're busy, it can take a bit longer to get attention - but in general its good. Would always recommend it. Will miss it when we leave Bangkok. And the desserts are fanastic.
I like its place and desserts, but not its food and service. In terms of service, they are awful. The waiters are having an arrogant attitude. I agree with other comments that they're careless about customers. You have to call for them at least twice when you need anything. This kind of service doesn't deserve 10% serice charge.
I have lived in Bangkok for 4 years and frequently visit Kuppa. The last occasion was a Sunday, usually a busy day but the staff seem to always cope, this time however, after waiting 45 minutes for our meals we were told that they had run out of the food we ordered and asked to reorder. We did so and as a consequence two people had to wait 90 minutes to eat. We had our young son with us (8 months old)who was clearly becoming fed up. I think it would have been a good gesture to offer us some sort of compensatory snck whilst waiting or at least apologise for the delay! What a disappointment.
Love the following dishes: Duck pate w/ orange marmalade and bread, Roasted pork w/ apple sauce and their Salmon Pizza. Their pasta dishes are also good.
Downside: Their desserts aren't that great though. Better go to other places for dessert.
The ambiance is great - a good relaxing place to be on a Sunday afternoon. The place is conspicuously tucked in one of the Soi streets of Thailand so not all taxis can bring you there. Waiters can speak and understand English.
Be prepared to shell out at least USD$10 per person. Quite reasonable for the ambiance and the quality of food.
This is one of those places that I have to go to whenever I'm in Thailand.
I've never seen any place where waiter carry kids around restaurant while their parents having lunch or dinner. All waiters remember you !!! I love hugh swinging couch, banana milk shake, Yam Nua, Tiger Prawn Salad, Prawn Bisque, Pumpkin Ravioli, Virginia ham & Sun dried tomatoes, Blueberries cheescake etc. We used to go out very often to this place a lot and we missed it a lot since we moved out of Thailand.
