JP French Restaurant is the 4th best ‘place to eat’ in Bangkok. That is no mean feat for a city with nearly 10,000 places to eat researched by Trip Advisor. What are they doing right? Simple they are providing good and authentic food and drink in pleasant surroundings.
The restaurant opened in 2010 .Since then the restaurant has quickly established itself in the restaurant scene of Bangkok. The restaurant is named after Jean-Pierre Thiaville the French proprietor and head chef.
The restaurant serves classic French cuisine. Favourites include cote de boeuf, escargots de Bourgogne and boeuf en croute. The food is attractively dished up and maintains an authentic French taste. This is ironically achieved thanks to the importation of Australian beef. Apparently Thai beef is really not up to the task of making French food.
As to be expected of a French restaurant, there is an impressive wine list to accompany the culinary offerings. Less expected for a restaurant in Bangkok is to offer the rare delicacy of pate foie gras. The price is not unexpected.
Jean-Pierre is involved not only in the kitchen but also front of house. He marshals the restaurant brilliantly and the staff all know their jobs. They are courteous, helpful and provide excellent customer service. It is as much for the service and the ambience of the restaurant as it is for the food that JP French Restaurant has achieved such high acclaim.
It is only to be regretted that the website for the restaurant while visually arresting lacks information beyond how to find the restaurant. Which incidentally is on a side road linking Sukhumvit Soi 23 with Soi Sawatdi. See the map below. The user experience is always enhanced by a more informative site.
J.P French Restaurant has street parking and validated parking. It has free wifi and a delivery service. They also accept all major credit cards. The restaurant classifies itself as ‘child friendly’. Opening is Monday to Saturday from 11.30 to 22.30.
