Really liked the menu and ambiance, food tasted really good and the service was also good. Slightly miffed that we couldn't book a table on the outside terrace even though we were staying at the Hilton

This restaurant is a must if you are in Malta, wherever you are staying on the island (although don't stay at Hilton which is not so recommendable). The food was fantastic, the restaurant design flawless and the service efficient and friendly. There is a beautiful pond with Koi fish in the middle of the restaurant and lovely separated seating areas.... More

This place is part of the Hilton complex. Over the years we have many Thai Green Chicken Curry's and only a small number have been true to their historical taste roots. We had to have it again as we had heard from numerous hotel staff that the dish was exceptional. Well we went, and indulged ourselves. We were not disappointed........ More

When we visit Malta we normally have a special meal and it does not come better than this, although not cheap its worth the experience. We had the royal Thai Banquet which gives you a selection of thai food which you may not normally try, we were stuffed by the time we finished.The whole place and staff are wonderful.

The location of this restaurant is beautiful, set on the Portomaso Marina, overlooking the fancy yachts and the beautiful blue seas, lovely decor, very well designed to give you an authentic Thai experience. We made a mistake from the start we opted to sit outside and while this gave you a fantastic view it was unbearably clammy, on hindsight sitting... More

Booked for our 26th Wedding Anniversary. The ambient is fantastic, giving you a Feel Good factor. From the vast Menu, we opted to take one of the Set Menus, the Bangkok Symphony Menu. The food and service were excellent. We will definitely recommend this venue to everyone.
