Triplets Bistro, a revolutionary French cuisine, is located on 6th floor of Parnjit Tower in Soi Thonglor, Bangkok. Before I go any further, from 14 February 2011, Triplets will be shut down temporarily for about 3 months in order to allow them to move to a new location in Soi Luangsuan. Triplets has a concept of using the best of local ingredients for food preparation to combine with French cooking technique of Chef Nate. The bistro is decorated casually with a drizzling open kitchen in which customers can enjoy cooking skills of Triplets' chef. Although, the restaurant may look small, it can comfortably serve up to 40 guests. The atmosphere is comfortable and friendly with quality services from the owners, though my first impression was not so great due to clueless staff who knew nothing about my booking.
Our meal started with 2 choices of soup. The first one was Mushroom Cappuccino. This was indeed a gorgeous cup of mushroom soup. Creamy mushroom soup on top with silky foam of the soup. Texture was not light but not thick. A spoon of chopped tomato went splendidly well with this luscious soup. All I needed to do was just drink it up (7/10).
The other soup was French Onion Soup. This extraordinary well-known French soup was really tasty. Very cheesy top with soft onion and aromatic soup. Authentic indeed, I like it (7/10).

Next in line was Mushroom Steak. Though, the tenderloin was really tender and juicy and mushroom demi-glaze was delightful and mashed potato was creamy and delicious, I still think that the taste of this dish needs more complexity (5/10).
Duck a l'Orange looked really savoury from the first sight. However, I found the meat a little tough and I would prefer to have the orange sauce more tangy. Otherwise, this would be an enjoyable dish (5/10).

Dessert of the night was Crepe du Jour. This simply was banana crepe with caramelised sauce. A great dessert but the banana was not ripe enough (5/10).

Triplets Bistro does deliver delightful dishes of wide variety with quality local ingredients. Price is reasonable except the charge for water which was rather ridiculous from my view. It would be even better if there is more choices of wine, liquor and drink. I would definitely revisit Triplets when it is reopen at Soi Luangsuan in mid May and would recommend anyone who has passion in French food to try this out.
