Very elegantly appointed upscale restaurant willing and able to accommodate larger parties. The food is more upscale Thai than you will find on the streets in Thailand, tasty nevertheless. Their fish topped with chilli and basil sauce and the chicken wrapped in pandan leaves were so good we were tempted to order seconds, as was the soft shellcrabs. The Tom... More

Their overall oriental cuisine is amazing and their stand out feature from other restaurants is that they have a teppanyaki table ... Even though a bit expensive.... It is a rare art watching a chef making food in front of u on a heated table .... Fresh food to eat is the term !!! Teppanyaki is pretty bland so wouldn't... More

Teppan is a costly, but very nice Japanese Teppanyaki Grill. You can order sushi a la carte, but I recommend going for the set Teppanyaki meals. You can choose from veg, meat (chicken), seafood, or premium seafood. My seafood meal came with seafood salad, miso soup, prawn tempura, prawn fried rice, and grilled basa and tuna fish. There was also... More

Benjarong is a fantastic Thai place. The ambience, service and food is simply divine. The soups on offer are aromatic and delish. For appetisers we ordered chicken in pandanus leaves and hed yang (skewers of mushroom, marinated and grilled, served with a refreshing papaya salad). Both were so yum we had to resist the urge to order seconds and gorge... More

Restaurant is very neatly maintained and has a good ambience. Food is authentic and the tastes are wonderful be that Phad Thai with basil leaves and baby corn or Khao Phad Sapparot (pineapple fried rice with water chestnut, cashews and raisins) or the fried ice cream (Iitim) it just makes you fall in love with Thai food.
