Dancing of traditional dances was lovely and location was brilliant. We choose it for ease as we were staying at Mandarin Oriental and boat running across the river to their Thai restaurant seemed easy for us as we were tired. For an easy night out with nice Thai dancing this is O.K. but we like real Thai food, full of... More

I had dinner here with my wife while we were staying at the Mandarin Oriental, for the convenience and for the fact that they offered a Thai dance show during the dinner. The dance show was quite good, catered to tourists (like we were, anyway), but the quality of food was disappointing.

A very nice restaurant with great service but not the cool vibe nor food quality if the rest if the very fine MO Bangkok. The show was cool and the people were nice, but it was empty and I may take a pass next time considering all the other great options at the Oriental.

We were staying at the Peninsula and thought we would give this restaurant a try. You do have to book but we asked for a table on a saturday evening and we were accommodated in the outside area.

Our last meal in Thailand was definitely our best. The food was amazing from start to finish and you get very generous portions. I had the spring rolls to start and was given about 15 which was far too much. Although they were very tasty in hindsight we would have shared starters. I ordered sticky rice with my Massaman curry... More
