Moulin @ Siam Discovery, Bangkok

I am spending the weekend in Bangkok on both work and leisure and today, I decided to visit Siam Discovery Mall in Bangkok. After going around and since it was lunch time, decided to head to the 6th Floor to walk around where there were a number of restaurants. After going through the entire floor, decided to head to Moulin.

Moulin at Siam Discovery
The place was quite vacant at this time of the day. I chose a seat quite close to the open air area but of course there was a glass partition to keep off the heat.

Me at the restaurant
Once there, I was given two sets of menus. One being the ala carte and the other being the set menu. The set menu did indeed seem very cheap so I chose one of the items in the set menu.

Lunch Set Menu
This is the Lunch Set Menu and I chose the Spicy Grilled Chicken with Butter Fried Rice. At 189 Bahts, this was quite a deal. The other ala carte items were around 400 - 700 Bahts each.

Interior of the restaurant
I was told that this place is quite packed at nights. However during this time there was just a few of us and quite a number of waiters.

The Interior of the Restaurant
One thing that surprised me was that thought there were only a handful of us, it did take a very long time for even the drinks to arrive. It seems that the cooking is done elsewhere and is brought here.

Thai Branded Coca Cola
After a 20 minutes wait, my drink arrives. Still there is no sign of the food.

Spicy Grilled Chicken with Butter Fried Rice at 189 Baht
Okay. After waiting for a total of 40 minutes, my food arrives. Guess it, it is absolutely tiny portion. I can finish this in just three bites.

Closer Look At The Dish
I just could not believe that the portion size is so small. No wonder the set meal was very cheap. I believe the ala carte would have been a decent size. I observed that from the dishes that other patrons ordered. Taste wise, it was good. No complaints on the taste but what use is that when it does not satisfy your hunger.

French Fries @ 300 Baht
I had to pick up the Ala Carte menu and order another side dish to satisfy my hunger, perhaps something high in carbs would be good. Thats why I ordered the above French Fries and it came after waiting for another 20 minutes.

Locally Made Heinz
You may be wondering why I took the photographs of the sauce bottles. I find their taste to be more authentic and pure. We do not get such pure Tomato Sauces in Malaysia, even the Heinz. It surely deserves a word of mention.

Special Set Lunch Options
Besides the standard set lunch menu, they also have another special set lunch menu which is just bundling with some soups and coffee. On the whole, I find this restaurant to be expensive as if I have dined in Kuala Lumpur, it would cost perhaps only two thirds of what it had cost me here. However, later I was advised by my friend that the cost of food in Bangkok is expensive.

In a nutshell, this is an okay place to have a meal, especially when you are with a hug group of friends. The environment is good and cosy but the tab is a little high. Food is good but not the best.

  1. I am really shocked with the portion size! A 5 year old might not even find that enough!

    1. So true! Bangkok street food would have been a better deal.
