Help me find this restaurant in Bangkok

Help. I'm headed back to Bangkok after an absence of five years, and I need to find a place a Chinese colleague led me to back then.

We were doing the gay bars in Silom Soi 2 and 4, when he led me after a not long, not short walk to a big white mansion that had been turned into a restaurant. The diners were, except for us, entirely Thai. Anyone know this place? The atmosphere was great, and I want to go again!

    Was this the place?
    Great desserts?

      Hmmm. That might have been it. Too bad it's closed.

        For some reason, after the building was sold, all the Anna's closed down. The Silom branch was the best of the lot anyway.

        If you really liked it, one of the owners has open "Charlie's", at the corner of Narithiwat Ratchanakarin and Ratchadapisek, about a ten minute taxi ride south of the Chong Nonsi skytrain stop. It's the same menu, similar atmosphere, different name.

        Charlie was using the Anna's menu until he had his own printed (same stuff). Most of the staff came with him from Anna's.

          Curt, yes, I saw that. No, the place wasn't so great that I'd go by taxi to Charlie's. Any other place near Soi 2 and 4 you like?

            Don't spend much time around Silom, and when I do, it's during the day.

            I like United Center's 3rd floor food court for the vegetarian stall.

      How long was the walk roughly? Was it a 2 floor Chinese restaurant with fish tanks by the door? Give some more details (what kind of restaurant, what did you eat, how many stories, etc) and I can perhaps help. I know that neighborhood well enough.
