Tasty well prepared food served with typical charm. Can be a little pricy, but that is only if you get carried away (easily done). Perhaps in big groups they do give smaller potions, but you still leave having eaten lots of great food!

I had the seafood and the menu was coaxed with papers one for hot two peppers for thermonuclear . Great cold Thai beer to cool the taste buds. The seafood was fresh and prepared with good tasting sauces. We were there for dinner and it was a nice business dinner. The waitress was decked out in silk and very attentive... More

Wonderful buffet meal. Such a good variety of food. The building is amazing, and decor, furniture etc is so 'Thai!' Service very good, and prices fair for what you get to eat!

Great food, reasonable prices that scream good value after you have finished eating... Interior decor isn't normally a head turner when dining as it is all about the food, but with the culinary standards being so nailed on, the inside of this restaurant just takes the experience to a whole new level.

I've never been to the Thai Emerald before so was surprised when a friend suggested to go for Sunday lunch. The restaurant is simply an amazing piece of Thai from carvings to statues to architecture. The food on Sunday is buffet all you can eat so good control is needed as the food is amazing. Massive selection including whole salmon... More

It looks like an awesome palace as you wander to find your self amid exotic plants and gold leaf décor fit for a Sultan The food is quite good but not completely authentic ,More of a westernised affair really.
