Had a lunch here for a friends birthday and also was using the Spa facilities. The food was amazing so hopefully will visit here for an evening meal in the future. Highly recommend and very polite and helpful staff.

Had dinner here whilst staying at Careys Manor Hotel. The atmosphere was very nice, the service excellent and on the whole the food was very good. The salt and chilli Squid and Scallops with mango salsa starters were very good as was the Prawn Phad Thai main course. My wifes Red Duck curry however whilst tasty - could have done... More

This is the best of the 3 restaurants at Careys Manpr Hotel..by a long way ! We had never eaten Thai food before and found the staff very helpful. The food was well presented and very tasty indeed. The restaurant is small and has a good lively atmosphere. All in all a very good experience.

Visited for a birthday meal. Ordered the sharing starter which came with more items than listed in the menu so off to a great start! However, the satay looked like it was brought in (it was pre-formed in shape), but the rest of the items were tasty. Main courses ordered were massaman beef and crispy duck. The beef appeared to...

The restaurant is one of three at a four star hotel. The interior has been decorated tastefully and ambience is inviting. The menu is not vast for a Thai restaurant (compared to London) but there is still sufficient choice. Upon seating we were served promptly and the dishes arrived shortly after ordering. Although the service was quick, the staff seemed... More

We have enjoyed the Zen Garden in the past and were delighted we chose to return for our anniversary meal. The restaurant is next to the spa in Careys Manor and has a very pleasant atmosphere. The food was of a high standard and we both thoroughly enjoyed all three courses. Service was also first class. We look forward to... More

It's not easy to prepare tai food without any kind of onion, chilli or garlic! But the chef managed to produced not one but two delicious meals for me, it was so good my husband kept eating mine!

A beautiful Thai meal with attentive but discreet service. The restaurant did get quite noisy later in the evening though when all tables were occupied - but that did not detract from a wonderful evening

How this has got so many good reviews I'll never know. We started going here as a family 5 years ago and it was very pleasant. However after a couple of dodgy meals we stopped going here for a while and then thought we'd give it another try to see if it had improved again. Shouldn't have bothered. Don't get... More
