Harmony in the Garden

Good thai food stop whilst enjoying the spa facilities in this hotel. Perhaps the papaya salad could have had more spice but a great relaxing lunch amongst the acers and bamboo. Lovely relaxing breakfast with some excellent choices too.

Went here whilst staying round the corner at the Cottage Lodge Hotel. Nice little walk through Waters Green and then sat at a window seat in this restaurant overlooking a little Thai garden with water feature. The waiters were excellent, describing each part of the shared starter we ordered and the mains when they came in good time were sensational.... More

Incredible Thai food, perfect, charming service. Recommend the Chef's Special of amazing ingredients wrapped in bitter nut leaves - wow, have never had anything like it. Apparently traditional Thai street food! Well worth a visit.

We had a couple of salads with fresh Thai flavours, and two excellent smoothies. Just what we wanted at the time.

Very nice food. Staff were friendly and the restaurant is nicely decorated. Would go again. The restaurant is part of a spa so you can make a day of it if you choose.

Only a small restaurant located next to the spa at the hotel, but if you want authentic Thai food in lovely surroundings then this is a great place to pick. Staff are excellent, the menu has some really interesting dishes and both the service and food are quality. A real gem of a restaurant and far better than the other... More

The decor, background music and atmosphere contributed to an overall calm and relaxing evening meal; there was a barely audible sense of conversations going on in the restaurant, but none that interfered with your own. The restaurant offered a good range of Thai food and, largely this was well cooked and presented, but it was not without its faults -... More
