From the Land of Smiles, a restaurant to put a grin on your face.

SoHo - South of Hollywood Road - has sprouted scores of restaurants in recent years, and the ones that survive do so thanks to a good location and imaginative menus. Ayuthaiya's got both, so dive in and enjoy.

Food and drink

Let's start with the alcohol, as so many customers do - cocktails sport a Thai theme or flavour, and the wine list is well drawn up. Food wise, expect an authentic meal, rather than the cosmetic approach adopted by too many Thai restaurants in the city.

Ambience

The tables, as in many centrally-located restaurants, don't have much in the way of elbow room. A lot of people stop off on the way home from work, well in need of some aid (liquid or solid) to help them wind down.

Service

Service is on the relaxed side, perhaps as a reflection of Thailand's renowned aptitude for taking things easy. By the same token, staff are exceptionally friendly.

Location

It's in SoHo, right next to the escalator that runs from Central to Mid Levels, so it's in a high traffic location. The bar and restaurant are at street level, with more seats upstairs. 

Price advice

It's approximately HK$500 per head just for food.
