The restaurant is beautiful. The setting is romantic. There is so much you can do with a place like this. Once you are seated at your table, the cracks start appearing, and pretty soon you realize that this is an experience you will not want to repeat. I went with my family for celebrating an occasion. The table cloth had... More

I've been to Prego at the Taj Coromandel three times and always gone back disappointed. Today I tried the prawns with black polenta. The prawns were overcooked till they were soft and pasty. The menu is quite limited and even though the service is excellent, the food isn't. I'm not sure I'd go there again. The prices are steep for... More

This place is classy. I love the decor and the ambiance. I have been here about 5 times and never had a bad experience. Every time I have been here the chef visited my table and kept asking me about the quality of the food. The steak here have had all my clients in raptures every time. The place is... More

Booked a table early in the day, went in for dinner at 8.30, only table occupied, full staff there who watched our every move, probably out of boredom. The most awful 'lift music' really cold and dark. My husband had a steak and asked for saute potatoes and veg, steak was v small but well cooked, accompanied by 3 small... More

This Italian restaurant in a five star hotel at the heart of the city is worth a visit for its attentive service and elegant ambience. Went with my family for my birthday and had a very pleasant time. The waiters are well informed and thoughtful; the food presentation was excellent. The presentation of the birthday cake especially is something that... More

Prego is situated in a top hotel in the centre of the city. Beautiful surroundings and a nice welcome from the waiter. We were not sure if we were dressed properly, as my husband wore shorts, but they were very nice and we felt welcome. The food was very good! Wide selection of italian bread to go with it. Price...

I visited after a gap of a couple of years. The brunch was good and the Italian chef visited the table just as before, This time I noticed it was so that she could take slices of cake from the sweet trolley each time which I suppose is a compliment to the food in its own way. Another plus is... More

Food and service is nice. The chocolate platter dessert and tiramisu was great but very expensive, chocolate platter was USD19 and Tiramisu was at USD16. I pay USD5 for tiramisu in what I consider on of the best in the world in Bangkok. Main meals are also steep around USD37. wine list is even at a much higher price. Ambiance... More
