» Charcoal is no ordinary Indian restaurant. First of all, they don't serve curry. Secondly, kebabs are the king of the menu. Thirdly, you can have your skewers with creative cocktails too. Positioning itself as a kebab specialist, the brand new restaurant offers something different to Bangkok's dining scene. The impressive decor has an industrial feel with subtle and playful Indian touches. The moment the elevator door opens you can't miss the many pieces of perforated orange aluminium squares that are lit up from underneath. They move in conjunction with electric fans that blow up some wind, mimicking fire. The men's toilet is equipped with sounds and signs found at authentic Indian markets (we can't speak for the women's bathroom because our male reviewer didn't want to be branded a perve). Look up to the very high ceiling and you should notice that it's covered with a screen pattern found at mosques. Outdoor seats are positioned next to the swimming pool with a view of the city beyond. There are many other details, from placemats to aprons, but you should experience it yourself. Suffice to say, a serious amount of attention has gone into creating a memorable atmosphere and it pays off.
