Overall: 6/10

Kuppa is a rather large restaurant decorated in Loft style.  Kuppa is situated ~ 500 metres down in Soi Sukhumvit 16. Despite its parking limitation, valet service is also available for your convenience. Because its casual and friendly style and atmosphere, Kuppa is suitable for many occasions: family dining, casual business lunch, friends meeting, and weekend morning coffee. Apart from tasty food, dessert can also be highlight for a meal here.


The first dish to arrive was Pumpkin Soup. It was rather different from the others, this soup was light and not so creamy with hint of herbs. Personally, more thickness from cream would make it savourier (5/10).


Next dish was Salt&Pepper Squid, deep fried squid was crisp and had sharp flavour of pepper. The dip was creamy like, similar to tartar sauce (6/10).


Japanese Salad, which was recommended by a waiter, was a bowl of iceberg lettuce with tobiko, avocado, cucumber, and crab stick. The dressing was somewhat lightly creamy called Wasabi Dressing. Lime also brought up Asian feeling. Nevertheless, over dressing let down the taste (5/10).


This was followed by Baby Spinach Salad, all time favourite at Kuppa. The salad was coupled with avocado, mushroom, and crispy bacon.  While dressing was balsamic, which was sweet and sour, rich flavour from sauteed mushroom was also splendid (6/10).


Moo Yang (Thai grilled pork) and sticky rice was one of my favourite at Kuppa.  I must say it was far better and those in other Thai restaurants. Pork was tender and well marinated. Sweet hint in flavour. Jaew (Thai dried chili dipping sauce) was piquant but less spicy than others, foreigners can handle this comfortably. Sticky rice was also soft (8/10).


Last for the meal was Ox-tail Stew with Mashed Potatoes. Ox-tail was tender and delicate. Gravy was rich and thick with sweetness from plum. Sea asparagus was also well handled as it was crisp on the outside but soft inside. The only downside was mashed potatoes which was too mushy (6/10).


Even though, I didn't manage to have dessert this time, I had never had bad experience with dessert here from my past visits. Overall, scoring of 6/10 for Kuppa should be acceptable for this all purpose restaurant.
