How I miss the old Trader Vic's

When this restaurant was a part of the Marriott property, it was truly a delight to visit. Now that it is part of Anantara, it has lost almost all of the charm it once had. I've not been for anything but the Sunday brunch, so please take in to consideration that my comments are directly related... read more

This hotel pub has live music every day between 10PM to midnight and we enjoyed the Thai singers (singing in English!). Beside that there is nothing special to say about the food. Go for the music and the atmosphere!!

Friendly service. Good food. Decent menu. Expensive wine. Mosquitoes bothersome (as in 2014) - odd, as none noticed in other eating places in the hotel

We only had bar snacks but they were delicious. The Happy hour encouraged guests to have a nightcap and listen to different groups, worth a look

I had been wanting to try this place for a long time and when some friends came to town wanting something different I suggested going here. They had two kids that were not on their best behavior and the servers really did well responding to the kids in a place that isn't exactly designed for kids. The restaurant was also... More

The food was just ok, nothing to complain about but when you compare the standard we had elsewhere in Thailand did not really hit the mark. The service was also a little slow and "missing something" that feeling that they cared ...... Wouldn't go back as the other restaurants at the Ananatara Riverside were top class.

Spent a Sunday afternoon at Trader Vic's where we had the smorgasbord and 'drinks all afternoon' package deal. Had an outside table overlooking the river and garden surrounds. Service was great by friendly staff with a wide selection of food available. This package is only on a Sunday with 3 options available - $69, $99 or $149 per person. We... More

The buffer seemed just as before with perhaps slightly more of an emphasis on seafood. The variety is almost endless. The Mai Tais might even have been a tick better than previously.

I had a meal here one Saturday evening. The menu was quite wide ranging and the choice of cocktails was excellent. Staff were efficient, friendly and attentive. I really enjoyed the flavours and presentation of the food and I thought the prices were quite reasonable for a large hotel in this central position on the river. However the quoted prices... More

Only had drinks. I'm not a tropical drinks fan but maybe that's just me. Pleasant enough once I found something to my taste. Little bit noisy though.
