Great view, great food, but...

terrible service staff. It needs us 20 minutes to made an order and more than 15 minutes later, the bottle of wine appeared. The shrimps cocktail was good, the duck skin perfect, only the duck meat was not really good

When the Peking duck came out they removed the skin from the duck and left us with the wraps so we just wrapped skin for peking duck and they took the duck meat back to the kitchen where they fried it and was a separate dish altogether. Very strange. Food took ages to come out, didn't taste great and was... More

We are in Thailand for my wife's birthday and have family and friends along for trip. We decided to take everyone here as a thank you for coming over for our party so booked a table... More

This is simple the best plave to go if you want to have pekin duck. When they serve the skin you are in heaven... they also have piglings but i founded that to be a bit to dry. Overall a good, nice and clean restaurant. 100% go there again and many more times to come. Its also a great place... More

Having been recommended for its beautiful views, our party of 13 arrived at the restaurant for a special birthday dinner. The menu was very limiting, nothing but rice for vegetarians. The restaurant could cover over 200 , but only 3 tables were occupied, we ordered starters and mains, the food came out bit by bit, some starters came out, people... More

We took our granddaughter for her 10th birthday. I ordered a number of special dishes in celebration. The suckling pig was the smallest one I have ever seen. I didn't think we were getting a whole one. What a delight, beautiful crispy skin full of flavour - wow. The Peking style duck was also great. They served a delightful birthday... More

although a good looking place has very bad services with no . We received the wrong order and then waited 30 minutes for the right order. What's worse was the lack of Care. If you like nice atmosphere with BD service go to this place.

Had seen signs for the royal kitchen everywhere on billboards and in magazines. Feeling curious my friend and I convinced a couple of friends to come along with us to try out this gem tucked up on the top of a very tired looking Royal Paradise hotel. Only 2 of the 4 elevators actually ascend to the 25th floor so... More

Hotel very tired, large panoramic restaurant with private lounges. The Peking duck is just acceptable, but it's still not a great memory, the staff is mechanical and unsmiling, the atmosphere is sinister in this big empty restaurant.
