We went to Bangkok near the end of 2017. We were late in trying to make dinner reservations. I had wanted to go to Gaggan, but you need like months in advance to book it. I was trying to book for the following week, so the only place that was open was Bo.Lan. It was ranked #19 on the ‘2017 Asia’s Best 50 Restaurants‘ list.
We took the metro to the restaurant; it was about a 5 minute walk from the stop. When we entered the restaurant, we were seated and given some complimentary drinks and snacks. We then ordered 2 cocktails (my wife got a watermelon one and I got a passion fruit something.) Both drinks were delicious. After that, we started our first course by going into the kitchen and having a bite there. After that, we were seated and then our courses came out. I had the beer pairing while my wife got the wine one. The only dish I remember was the chicken thigh in the banana leaf – very delicious. Besides that, I remember being really stuffed by the end of the meal. Was it worth it? Sure. Would I go again? Nah. Do I recommend you go? Nah; try to get into Gaggan instead.
