“Appetisers were soooo good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

As the title says - the appetisers were really tasty. Fresh tastes and a little variety. The mains were good but were a little more average. Nice setting although you are overlooking a public beach. Might not be so great when it's busier.

“Excellent service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We went with my family for lunch Christmas 2012. Service was second to none, and the food was delicious. Lovely place on Kata beach!

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Excellent food, great service, nice view. Best food I ate in all of Thailand. No joke. Ended up making this our regular end of the day affair, menu was diverse and every meal was astounding.

“Everything is great except the food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We came here based on all the positive reviews, and ordered a Thai and French Degustation Menu. Unfortunately we were sorely disappointed.

The service and atmosphere is great as everyone mentioned. However the preparation was really off. In the French menu, the foie gras felt and tasted like rubber and the lamb had no flavor. In the Thai menu, the fish had too many conflicting favors. While we enjoy spicy food, one of the Thai dishes (can't remember which) was too spicy to enjoy.

Dear john_in_sf123
Reading your comment which I thank you for, I just want to assure you that we take great care in sourcing only the best quality products for our menus. Our saltbush lamb comes from Australia and our Foie Gras from France. Our lamb is first seared then brushed with mustard and finished with a herb crust. The Foie Gras is seasoned then pan-fried and finished with port wine sauce and chanterelle mushrooms. Regarding the Thai menu, the dishes are based on original Thai recipes and the flavours it's true, may not suit everyone. Normally our staff offer guests various levels of spiciness for Thai dishes according to guests' liking. At Boathouse, we very much care about our guests experiences which we strive to make memorable and only regret you didn't make your disappointment known to the staff as we would certainly have offered you to choose other dishes and would have enjoyed meeting and discussing this with you.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Had done the cooking course here 4 years ago and loved it then so decided to return for dinner. Was not disappointed the standard was still as high as previously. The wine list was good, the food delicious we had a mixed thai starter platter and I had a mussamen curry everything delicious. There was an extensive French menu too although we just wanted Thai. The setting is superb looking out onto the beach and very prettily lit up and night. A little expensive but well worth the money.
