A chat with the owners…
Eric & Sita wanted Kutai to be a place where folks could escape from the traffic noise of Bangkok. A place where they would feel like they’ve been transported to a beach bar or pier harbor side eatery. Since the restaurant is tucked away down an alley off the main Suan Phlu street customers are shielded from the traffic and chaos noise and are greeted with soft jazz music instead. The restaurant itself is decked out in full nautical theme with blue and white striped colors, soft lighting, and starfish/shells with fish netting adorning the walls.
Hailing from the coastal region of Brittany, France, Eric has always held fresh seafood and wine in high affection.
He decided to open a seafood restaurant specializing in mussels. These are deep sea (not mud cultivated) mussels purchased pier side daily in Samut Prakan. So the large bowls of mussels you get are fresh from that day's catch and you can taste the freshness!
