Bangkok Jam by Creative Eateries Group is the quirky cousin of Siam Kitchen - identified by its witty, electic decor theme reminiscent of a traffic junction, and a selective but representative menu.

Bangkok Jam stands out from other mass market Thai restaurants with their moreish and attractively plated appetizers or tapas.
Yum Som Oh or Pomelo Salad $10.50++ is rarely found nowadays and Bangkok Jam's version is excellent - the salad is a refreshing contrast of tastes - sweet pomelo sacs, fresh taste of QQ shrimps, crispy shallots, tangy hints of finely shredded lemongrass or kaffir and the spicy kick of birds eye chilli flakes.
Tod Mun Goong $9.90++ for four pieces of the popular prawn cakes. Here the prawn cakes are creatively served - skewered on a lemongrass stem, in keeping with the aim of serving finger food to go with its cocktails and wines. The prawns were fresh and the breaded patties were crisp fried to an attractive golden brown colour. Good enough on its own but was served with a piquant homemade plum sauce for those who want a dip for their tapas.
Tub Tim Krob or Red Ruby Dessert at $7.50++ may seem pricey but imho is worth every cent. Lots of crunchy water chestnut morsels wrapped in a thin chewy coating of tapioca flour offers a delightful contrast of textures and instead of being immersed in coconut milk and topped by shaved ice, Bangkok Jam serves it with three scoops of their creamy not-too-sweet homemade coconut ice cream. Brilliant.
Service was attentive, friendly and prompt. Will visit agaon soon to try other items on their menu.
