Having been to Thailand many, many times I'm very much into Thai food. Normally we wouldn't eat Thai food at a hotel but due to special circumstanced we weren't able to leave the hotel for dinner.

Thai fine dining with a very reasonable price tag. Despite being concerned that this retaurant was inside one of a chain of hotels, we found that as soon as we walked in, you didn't feel like you were in a hotel. The atmosphere was great, with friendly and helpful staff, and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. We'll definitely be back.

Outstanding Thai food in an upscale setting in the Basil restaurant inside the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit hotel. The service was impeccable too. The sateh for starters was delicious. The curry and duck with Tamarind sauce for mains were outstanding. Served with three types of rice. A very good meal for Western price levels, but not too expensive, about 80 dollars... More

An absolutely exquisite restaurant within the 5 star Sheraton Grande. The staff is welcoming and courteous as expected, as gracious as can be. The restaurant offers a serene and luxurious ambience, and if you can tolerate "hotel " prices with thousands of other restaurants in the neighborhood at 25% of the cost, you owe it to yourself to go here...

Went there for Valentines, for a Valentines Dinner package. Food was great, the ambience is great, but they did not think thru how they seat their Valentine's guest's vs. regular guests. So, we had a noisy, walk-in couple, who were seated next to us, which ruined the nite. I did complain to the manager and then, they changed our seats... More
