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'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I like Kuppa. I go there a lot. The service is great, the wines are good, as is the food.
Sure it's more expensive than other restaurants, but it's no more expensive than you, a westerner, would pay at 'home' for similar.
Desserts are also excellent.
I like the decoration of the place but the foods are too simply comparing with the price. The staff has a snobbish attitude and show us that their business is doing so good right now, so they could not careless about one or two complaint per night.I've been their with my boyfriend and a group of our Thai friends. We all don't like it.
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 struggle to see why this place is so popular. The food is largely overrated - the staff are not particularly useful; yet many people like it. The buildign and layout are very smart, granted, but the food is simply disappointing. Each time I succumb to the pressure from friends to go here, I leave vowing never to return
I wish I could figure out what the attraction is for this place. Well, if you are a Thai longing for your happy days at university in Australia or England, this is a cool place. But western visitors? Please. The food is average, the atmosphere is sleek, the service is acceptable, but the prices are quite western and one could eat at a generic chain bistro-style restaurant like this in any city in the world. Why triple your dinner bill to eat the same food you eat at home? Skip it.
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.
