The ambiance of Red Oven is reminiscent of a traditional food market, but with a contemporary twist. The hand-crafted red Molteni oven, a symbol of exquisite French craftsmanship, stands as a testament to the restaurant’s commitment to quality.

The buffet spread at Red Oven was a visual and gastronomic spectacle. It was evident that meticulous thought had gone into curating a selection that catered to the most discerning of palates. From the freshest seafood to a diverse array of international dishes, the offerings were both vast and exquisite.
Our culinary journey began at the cold seafood section. The oysters, a direct import from the pristine coasts of France, were a symphony of flavors, encapsulating the essence of the ocean. The sushi and sashimi, crafted with precision, were a testament to the chefs’ expertise, each bite melting in our mouths, leaving us craving for more.
Adjacent to the seafood was the salad and cheese bar. The cheeses, sourced from the finest dairies in France, were a delight. Paired with a selection of freshly baked bread and cold cuts, it was a gourmet experience par excellence.
As we ventured further, the hot selections beckoned. The meat carving station was a carnivore’s paradise. The beef wellington, with its perfectly cooked meat ensconced in a flaky crust, was sheer perfection. The roasted lamb leg, seasoned to perfection, was succulent, its flavors lingering long after the last bite.
The international spread was a reflection of Red Oven’s commitment to offering a truly global dining experience. From the rich and creamy Nordic salmon with béarnaise sauce to the spicy and flavorful Thai southern curry with crab, each dish was a culinary masterpiece. The array of choices, from Western to Asian, ensured that there was something for everyone.
A Dessert Lover’s Paradise
The dessert section was a dream come true for anyone with a sweet tooth. The homemade ice creams, with flavors like Thai tea and banoffee, were creamy and delectable. The pastry corner showcased an array of cakes and pastries, each more tempting than the last. The mango custard patisserie was a delightful fusion of tartness and sweetness, making it our favorite for the night.
Service Beyond Reproach
The staff at Red Oven are the unsung heroes of the dining experience. Their attention to detail, combined with their warm and welcoming demeanor, ensures that every diner feels special. From the hostess who greets you with a smile to the chefs who take the time to explain the dishes, the service at Red Oven is impeccable.

Our personal experience at Red Oven was accentuated by the little touches. The window seat, offering panoramic views of Bangkok, added a visual element to our meal. The chefs, with their surprise servings, showcased the best of what Red Oven had to offer. It was these personal touches that transformed our meal into a memorable experience.
What truly set Red Oven apart was not just its culinary offerings but the impeccable service. The chefs, despite being engrossed in their craft, took the time to interact with the diners. Their insights into the dishes, the ingredients, and the inspiration behind them added depth to our dining experience.
