I first went to Chesa back in 2000, for a colleagues birthday celebration. I can’t remember much about that night, but I did remember that the food was good.
It was some years later that I was in traffic coming from the Emporium, and I was hungry – thinking about where I could eat – I remembered Chesa. I quite often eat by myself – I enjoy it – order everything you like and don’t feel beholden. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy a good conversation over dinner and a glass of wine – but eating alone is a guilty selfish pleasure.
My personal favorite is the Chateaubriand for two (just eat it yourself but be hungry).
One of the things I really like about Chesa is its unpretentious nature – from the staff, through to the food and the owners – there is a naturalness that is appealing.
If you’re coming to Bangkok, and there’s a cold snap – or even if it is as hot as Hades, drop by – you won’t regret it.
Excellent quality, generous portions, served quickly.
Chesa is very laid back. Thomas and Rene are usually on-site, but the staff are all very professional and friendly anyway.
If you’re driving then as you come from Sukhumvit Road Chesa is on Soi 20, the left. You can’t miss it. You can always get a parking spot .
Chesa is reasonable, great value.
