Really beautiful restaurant and Good Thai food. For Europeans that like spicy food medium spicy is more than enough. The only thing I disliked is the price of the water, 35 ringgits for a bottle of San pellegrino still water?, it seems crazy when the starters price are near 40 ringgits. Waiters really good and ambiance really romantic. Final price... More

We visited the Datai to go to this restaurant. Overall we enjoyed the food, the serves were huge ( beware) and the food a high standard,although it didn't blow my mind. The jungle pavilion is a lovely setting

For those well accustomed to Thai food, then this will be a let down in terms of food offerings. Find it somehow adjusted to the Malaysian palate in terms of taste. Found out that the chef is from Southern Thailand, hence the inclination. Although the ambience, the service standards will make you divert your attention to the food offerings.

Really good :) although pricey. Nice ambiance overall...we were in the middle of the rainforest but it did not feel that way at all.

Amazing food in a unique location with service to match. Where else can you taste good food in the canopy of the rain forest

Expensive. Food was nice but nothing special. Wouldn't be in a rush to return. Had similar class of food at home

Wonderful food and great service. Lovely setting and they have a wonderful variety of food. We loved the soft shell crab appetizer and the water chestnut dumplings for dessert.

Unique and elegant ambiance in the rainforest. Amazing thai food. Very well priced. Monkeys in the trees outside the open restaurant! Wonderful staff. Even run cooking classes weekly. The highest accolades for the food, thank you Chef!

Unfortunately the Datai Pavillon dining experience was poor on this occasion. Food too spicy (coming from someone who can handle spicy food), the service was disorganised (we were a group of 15ish and struggled with getting orders in, etc.) and not particularly friendly. Food selection was good, just not the food itself. Also very expensive for average Malaysian hotel standards.... More
