I had a brief chance to taste some dishes at Niche @ Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok a little while back during an event of wine dinner. Niche is a kind of place that serves a more casual style of menu and operates almost for the whole day. The interior is chic and chill whilst there are as well garden seats where it is more relax. This is not at all bad for another hanging out venue. In brief, I sort of like the atmosphere of this place which is spacious and cosy. The service is good too. Staffs were friendly but may need to improve a bit more on standard and etiquette.

I have to say that food here is not that excellent but not bad. For the night, there were 4 courses in total for food and wine, and it was priced at THB1,900 which is quite reasonable. The starter was Salmon Carpaccio (5/10). Simply standard smoked salmon with herbs cream and foam of lemon, nothing in particular: an enjoyable dish for kicking off. It should be nice with a glass of clean and crisp Chablis or dry Riesling. The second to follow was Smoked Duck Breast (3/10). A small portion of smoked duck salad in beautiful decoration. It was served alongside chutney of red berries, walnut and blue cheese. I found this dish kind of unbalance. Blue cheese seemed to overwhelm other senses. Smoked duck was too dry.

For the main, it was Grilled Beef Skirt (5/10). Classic steak in peppery red wine sauce. I would say it was grilled nicely to medium rare. The sauce was classic and decent. Just the quality of beef perhaps that let the whole picture down: a bit chewy. Lastly, the dessert of Siam Passion (7/10) was served. It was the highlight of the meal. It came last but stand out and finished the course in style. It was the blend of mango and passion fruit, I believe, and moulded into mousse. A touch of coconut milk and roasted coconut to give the final dimension. A good dish in East-Meets-West style, it was. If I could have a nice glass of Tokaji or Sauternes that would be perfect ending.
