Lovely elegant spot. Tried it out based on reviews and was not disappointed. Foodies will love the menu selection. I tried the Discover Seafood menu, it was delicious, wish I had more space to finish everything. Great presentation and flavours. Absolutely loved the dessert. Was also treated to a Thai dance show. Staff very attentive and friendly. Reception arranged the... More

You're blown away the min you enter this place. Its classy, elegant and you know you made the right decision to reserve a table at this place for that romantic dinner.

Ate here on a Sunday, which also has the traditional Thai dancing- very entertaining. We went for a family 60th & the staff were very accommodating with our cake and table placement to make it a very special evening. Food was of a very high standard although pricy for Thailand. Their signature cocktails are to die for and they do... More

The restaurant was beautiful and the hotel had so much flair. The food was very very good, not excellent but I would definitely recommend to someone for a special occasion. Thursday nights have traditional Thai dancing while you are eating which was very entertaining and fun to see.

Sublime euro-Thai food, sea front tables, a great wine list with affordable champagne (at 6 quid a glass we guzzled a lot of Blanc de Blanc!). Dont miss their lobster bisque, tuna tartare starters, the fried fish Thai main or the pork medallions

International food looked great on menu but was more expense ranging 300-1600 although av seemed around 500-700 but a dish. Would happily go back just... More
