This is a unique restaurant in a lovely setting. The price is a bit more than the other places we tried but it was a special experience.

A group of friends and I went as it was recommended by our concierge. Upon arrival you are taken away by the Zazen hotels romantic cheesiness. Charming although not for my taste. The walkways leading up to the restaurant are lush and rustic. Obviously over catered to the tourists. Upon reaching the restaurant you notice the Moroccan lights dangling from... More

Came here based on all the good reviews below. Food was expensive, and even worse was not as good as the street food we've has at a fraction of the price. The chicken in the massaman curry was tough, and the rice dry. The eggplant salad had an overly strong burnt taste. And I'm writing this review waiting for a... More

This beautiful property is definitely worth a visit. From the moment you arrive, one enters a small, magical world. The restaurant setting overlooking the bay is wonderful and the entire dinner is accompanied by the sound of the waves washing up on the beach. We selected the Thai Discovery meat and Thai Discovery fish menus. Both were excellent and gave... More

Went withe my wife and friend. The ambience, service standards, food quality were very good indeed. As I run one of the top TA Resorts in the world, I often have to compare, compare, compare, but it was great to be able to relax, enjoy and have a great evening.

A lovely setting, with very good food and friendly staff, and a huge wine list. We had many lovely dinners sitting by the water, and wait till you see and try the deserts. They are a work of art, that taste just as good.
