Perched high at the top of a precipitous hill slope, Ratri is worth the 1km (hideously steep) climb for their classic Thai dishes, most of which pack an explosively spicy punch. There's a cacophonous live jazz band that plays late into the night. The music is great, but if you are looking forward to some dinnertime conversation, it makes that hard (you should go before sunset, in that case). There's a full wine cellar and cigar bar (so nonsmokers beware). The somewhat surly service is the only drawback.
