Best restaurant ever

What an amazing restaurant. The decor is unbelievable. Ornate carvings cover the walls chairs and tables. The entrance has a small indoor pond with Koi Carp and statues and an ornate gold coloured boat and beautiful staircase. The staff were all dressed in their national dress.

I came here with five friends for a meal after hearing great things but that was not what we experienced. The atmosphere was dead at first but slowly picked up. The wait for food was not so long, but when it did come one friends meal was dead cold! and then another friends food did not turn up at all!... More

Good food, great service, lovely environment. Slightly high prices but worth it. On Sunday lunchtime they have a buffet meal service which is excellent value for money.

Had our first Sunday buffet here, nothing to complain about , just good food and good service. We booked in advance which was wise as pretty busy. A good atmosphere, fine for families or couples. We were last to leave but never felt pressured to vacate our table.

We went out as family to the Thai Emerald for the Sunday Buffet. The food was all well presented, frequently replenished and very delicious. There is a good selection and there was something to suit everyone. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend and we will be visiting again!

Went to this restaurant in Cheltenham on a Friday evening to celebrate a work colleague leaving. There were 18 of us and the restaurant had asked us to provide them with our menu choices a few days beforehand, which was fine and totally understandable. I submitted our choices via email and there was always a quick response. Upon arrival, I... More

Visited on a Thursday night and it was packed! Food was nothing memorable and not particularly authentic. Currys were quite bland. Not sure if we were unlucky visiting on a particularly busy evening but wouldn't return.

Lovely food & lovely staff- I recommend this to anyone looking for a restaurant in Cheltenham. The furniture and crockery are gorgeous especially the tea pots and mugs. Always served hot and food is to die for.
