A night at the river Enjoying an idyllic setting on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, The Riverside Terrace offers guests alfresco dining with a beautiful view. A delicious international buffet is accompanied by a live band every night. Alongside Indian tandoori ovens, an open fire rotisserie and a large sushi counter, we also serve a choice of Lebanese mezze, Japanese Teppanyaki, fresh bread, fresh seafood and mouth-watering barbecued meats. Our famous dessert station boasts a variety of delicious puddings as well as decadent offerings from our flambe table.

Well, I have stayed here so many times and every day starts with breakfast on the riverside terrace. You can get wonderful healthy food. Eat the fresh Papaya with lime and will it with natural yoghurt. Relax. You can even have a morning business meeting here.

This was our second choice of on-site restaurant at Mandarin Oriental as Ciao was fully booked (until some very late seating) both nights of our stay. I really enjoyed the ambience, the service and the food. The restaurant was very quiet both nights at the times we were there - which suited us and maybe gave us even better service... More
