Went for my birthday meal. Lovely food, nice atmosphere. Didn't have any full bottles of champagne (errrr wot?) so ended up having two 35cl bottles instead (didn't even know they existed - lol!). Nice surprise birthday cake to finish off our evening :o)

I dined here because I have read a lot of good reviews about this restaurant online. When I was planning my trip, the restaurant was closed because it was undergoing renovation. I was disappointed because it was one reason I chose this hotel. Luckily it was open at dinner time and I reserved one night to dine here. Everything was... More

Great food and service - as one can expect from a restaurant connected to the Sheraton hotel. Well worth a visit if you like thai with a lot of ginger and lime - we loved it!

Our favourite restaurant in Bangkok was closed! Very disappointing. Due to the recent coup and low occupancy in the hotel this signature eatery was closed. I think the hotel should think twice before making this type of decision again. It was a real let down.

I had prebooked a birthday meal for a friend during our trip to Thailand. Swift and easy reservation process via email and even when we were running late (due to Bangkok traffic) we were well accommodated. A group of 6 young ladies. We dined in an almost private room. Appeared to be a quiet night in the restaurant though there... More

Delicious Thai food in a very refined and elegant restaurant. The service is perfect and the menu to die for. Definitely geared towards an international clientele and... a wealthy one, since it's fairly expensive.

The food is above the benchmark, great timing service by the well trained staffs, pioneer IPAD ordering with clear description and photo on the side, great ambiance with decent architectures. We enjoyed our time here, and definitely will come back again for a visit.

This restaurant is better than fast food take away, the service is good, and the restaurant clean. Prices are on the step side for what you are getting. I have eaten in worse places and have eaten in better. Good for a quick meal, but not a place you would visit often.
