Trendy Hi end Royal Thai food. Very spicy. Only set menus. Run by Chef Bo and recently won a Michelin star. It’s pricey but the lunch set menu is reasonable for the quality you’re getting.

Volve hotel (see above) recently rebranded their coffee shop and now have a full food menu. There’s various light lunch and brunch options. The food is just ok, so I’d stick to coffee, they have French press and drip coffee, and it’s still a good place to chill out and work.
