Lovely food, great service

Extremely expensive, but truly great Malay food and an unbeatable environment. The hotel is the top in luxury and so this is a fitting poolside restaurant. Had a great lunch here.

The buffets (breakfast and evening) were fine but not special. We had the ala carte menu one evening and quite enjoyed the food.

Lovely restaurant with very good food. How ever the staff all seemed very serious and there was a strange atmosphere there.

Unless you are staying in the Datai resort, expect to have to drive along a windy road to get here. Bear that in mind if you are considering sampling from the extensive wine list. The food cannot be faulted - authentic Thai with fresh herbs grown on the premises. Portions are generous and pricey, so be careful not to over-order.... More

Very nice restaurant for Thai food, ask for a table near with a view. All the food we had was tasty. Not that's cheap but good quality. Worth a visit, although we thought that Gulai House at The Datai was slightly better.

This is the perfect hang out for beach watching, lazing around, eating and cocktail drinking. The Pavilion also have lanterns you can take onto the beach, light up and launch into the night sky enveloped with all your dreams and wishes ;-)

Why hasn't anyone already reviewed this restaurant? It's simply superb ! The ambience is first class ,the staff are so professional, above all the food is out of this world! Pricey but so worth it's keep your taste buds intact and don't over spice the food or you'll be in tears surrounded by tissues as we were.
