We had breakfast there this morning: riverside, neat, calm. I recommend to not take the buffet because the area is packed and noisy while the "a la carte" seating section (they still have 3 set menus) is much quieter. The pastries could be better, while the dishes we had were great. A great way to start the day!

This is all about The Oriental. Honestly, the hardware is nicely maintain but nothing spectacular. The reason many travelers continue to go back here is their service. Very professional and friendly. They are on league of their own.

Since we go to Peninsula for stay, we always come back for dinner ,here. Often, it's privatised for a wedding party ,but worth come specially ! Personally, I would recomend for dinner than lunch. Even if the quality of food became lower than before, the service is still high(Mandarin's hospitality ,I should say) .

as always in Thailand, central tables are decorated by fruit cuttings (they give lessons how to for hotels guests). Nice at evening,when air is fresh. Seafood are succulent,but we haven't tried meats.

We had wonderful breakfast inside, crepes, mix fruit pancakes and waffle with coconut ice cream and mango. Next couple of days we dined outside. For dinner we chose comfort food I have beef bourguignon with mashed potatoes and my daughter had pasta Bolognese and both were fantastic. The view at night was beautiful and very romantic.

After trying Shangrila and The Penisula, thought I'd try the 'main' hotel in Bangkok, according to prestige and prices. For those unfamiliar with the Thai Press, this is the one place where Royal or Government weddings/events happen. Walking through the lobby in a collared short sleeved shirt and shorts, one is somewhat a mere mortal. Made my way to the... More
