Superb meal up in the sky

Eight of us sat around our 61st floor table, hardly able to concentrate on the delicious food as we were so focused on enjoying the view of bustling night-time Bangkok far far below us. It was like seeing the city from a plane! Such stylish rooftop design, such Thai hospitality. Memories forever.

I always have a criticism to say when staying at an hotel. The Banyan tree is difficult to fault! Perfect service, lovely spa- ok expensive- with european level prices - great gym and pool on level 21. The service is what makes this place stand out, it is very kind, attentive, efficient.... The rooms are beautiful and for the differnce... More

The view is stunning, and absolutely worth a visit. Good enough for drinks though, since the food is absolutely not worth the money.

Finally dined here with my partner during our stop-over in Bangkok. The view is amazing from what? the 60th floor? The rained stayed away, forecast was good so we were excited for out dinner. I'll be brief. The service is great, no doubt. the food that night was nothing special at all. whether it was the chef who had an... More

What a huge disappointment, the service was bad then got worse. We were called to our table only for it to be dirty so had to stand in everyone's way whilst it was cleaned, then asked to pay for the drinks we had at the bar whilst in an awkward no-mans land inbetween the bar and restaurant. The food was... More

A great place for a romantic dinner at the end of your trip. This place had an incredible view. The food was expensive, possibly even overpriced, but was really tasty too. The aptmoshpere was amazing also. I would definitely recommend it to others looking for a similar experience.

We only went to the bar, our budget doesn't stretch to dinner here. The view is an amazing 360 degrees of the Bangkok skyline from the 61st floor. Service is attentive. The bar does get busy so get yourself there early for a seat. It is expensive, but for the view and experience it was worth it.

Food was very mediocre and extremely expensive ($300 for meal and drinks) but we expected that based on the reviews. Views are spectacular. Best view in the city. We got a table on the west side along a railing...that is the place to be if you can request it. One pleasant surprise was that they brought us complimentary little bites... More

We visited the Vertigo Restaurant located at the top of the Banyan tree hotel on our last night in Bangkok. This dining experience was the perfect end to our stay. The Hotel is simple enough to find due to the sheer size of the place and is walking distance from the sky train station 'S2' We opted for the 4... More
