Cassia, an English country style tea room decorated in blue and white tone, is located in Soi Sawatdi, Bangkok. Entering Soi Sawatdi from Sukhumvit Road, Cassia is on the right-hand-side. The blue and white sign of Cassia can be easily spotted. This year, Cassia has been one of my favourite place to have a quick meal because of its privacy and comfortable atmosphere. Dishes here are served in a homemade style. Feelings and touches are just like you are having a meal in the garden of your house.

Today we began our dinner with soups: Tomato Soup and Sea Asparagus Soup. Both soups give strong flavour of the main ingredients and thick; while tomato soup represented sour, sea asparagus was sweet and subtle. Touches of homemade indeed (6/10). Soups were served with a piece of toast which was crisp outside and soft inside.

Spaghetti Vongole was one of the two main courses. Spaghetti, even though a little over cooked, was prepared with garlic, parsley, and clams (generous portion). Hint of white wine was also there. Spaghetti Vongole at Cassia is light thick and of course, without cheese (5/10).

Veal with Mushroom Cream Sauce was the other main course. This dish was below par for Cassia. Mashed potatoes was rather coarse. Carrots and beans were overcooked. Despite tenderness of veal, chewiness was also there. Lastly cream sauce was just too normal (4/10).

We also had refreshing drinks during our dinner, which were great: Blue Pea Flower Drink with Lime and Lime Juice with Honey. They both were great but a little too sweet for me.

Accounting for touchy atmosphere and friendly service, an overall score of 6/10 should be explainable. Definitely, we will return to this relaxing venue of Cassia.
