Lord Jim's

I mean to write about "Lord's Jim" for ages. Its one of my most favorite restaurants in Bangkok. For some reason, I never got a chance to take some pictures.

I often come here for Sunday Brunch with mates (We love their buffer brunch with unlimited Foie Gras to offer & and hmmm a very cute Chef !!... Oh well, we have a thing for a man who can cook.)

The superlative menu at this seafood restaurant attracts diners from far and wide.
Named after the seafaring hero created by the novelist Joseph Conrad, Lord Jim's reputation for magnificent seafood is almost as well-travelled as its namesake. It is renowned world wide, particularly for its sushi and sashimi dishes that are often to be seen in their buffet lunches and a la carte dinner menu.
After a complete and total transformation, the newly renovated restaurant's concept focuses not only on the freshness and vastness of the sea which is reflected in the variety of exciting seafood dishes, but also on aquatic themes which are prevalent in the sophisticated and stylish décor.
