Fork and Cork recently re-branded it's business after 30 years of serving exquisite Thai cuisine supported by a handful of masterful western dishes, under the name "Sphinx". After three decades it was time to re-vamp. And not just the image but also the interior of this beautiful restaurant at the end of Silom Soi 4 got a huge makeover. The new style reflects the core value, which is the pillar of Fork & Cork's long standing success: Authenticity. The wooden materials, the bare ceilings and the absolute stunning bar with impressive rows of luxury glasswork; they all reflect the importance of essence, of quality, and the rewards of choosing natural materials. It's this philosophy that drives Fork & Cork's kitchen into the conversation about Thai food all over the world. It's considered one of, if not the best place(s) to go if you want to experience what authentic Thai food actually tastes like. The menu offers a number of western items too, great pasta and delicious other culinary treats from other parts of the world.
A casual, relaxed and historic dining experience
The new interior of Fork & Cork is a magnificent creation. It entices the eye yet provides a sense of comfort and casualness that makes the dining experience that much more pleasant. It's intimate yet private. Groups can lounge in the center of the restaurant's floor and enjoy a few drinks over conversation whilst couples and friends or business associates enjoy a quiet meal on the outer sides of the establishment. Outside, looking out over the vibrantly alive Silom Soi 4, are standing tables to hang out and stretch those legs a bit and perhaps sip a nice cocktail or a hot cup of exquisite Italian coffee.
It's hard to say what makes an atmosphere truly complete and what gives a restaurant that extra appeal.
