Salmon was lovely and cooked just right. Superb mixed drinks, wine on the expensive end - good choice of Beers.

I don't know exactly in which category this restaurant falls. Certainly not Polynesian, as claimed. I had an excellent madras curry with prawns, kids had Thai curry and wife australian steak. Everything was excellent, very well presented, and all dishes had a special touch, making them very original. For example, indian curry came with a nice 7 or 8 cup... More

From the first time I stepped into Trader Vic’s restaurant at the Anatara Riverside Spa I lost my heart to its Bali Ha’i ambiance. Famed for its Pacific Rim cuisine Trader Vic’s never fails to please the palate and entertain the imagination. Service is efficient and comes with the complimentary Thai smile and graciousness. Looking over the menu it is... More

Trader Vic's has a great variety of foods ranging form sushi to steak. They also had Thai, Chinese, American, German, salads, appetizers, Middle Eastern, cheese and wine room, and deserts. The food was great especially the sushi, but it was extremely expensive.

The best meat of this journey! Chose tenderloin and medium-well done, arrive perfectly grilled, very tasty. We at here once and had drinks here many evenings. Great house-band from Cuba, beautiful singers. Only two remarks, this place is way to dark, needs better and cozy lighting. I "robbed" a live candle from the entrance so even be able to see... More

Our Bangkok friends always take us to a brunch on our trip and we had visited this one before - though we all felt it has seen better days. The space seemed small, cramped and a touch dark - and the food was not overly impressive. The outside terrace was still lovely but all in all was only average for... More

I have been to Trader Vic's a number of times and it is always fantastic, especially the Sunday Brunch. This time however, I went for the cocktails. My friends had told me that Trader Vic's had hired a new mixologist and that his cocktails were fantastic. They were not wrong! We were pretty much the only people in the bar,... More

I had previously dined at Trader Vic's in Bangkok on several occasions over the past 6 - 7 years. Prior to my most recent experience on Saturday evening January 5, 2014 I was always exceptionally satisfied with everything they offered. Their previously outstanding barbecued spare ribs with the finest sauce you can imagine is no longer offered. Their once fabulous... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share about your recent visit to Trader Vic’s and your constructive feedback. I noted your comments regarding the ribs, service time and Mai Tai cocktails, which did not exceed your expectations and is certainly the opposite of what our Trader Vic’s team, is striving to achieve. I would like to... More
