This is a special place. From the moment you walk up and step onto the hand-pulled boat and are greeted by a pretty glamourous hostess, through to the bespoke cutlery and crockery, you know you're in a pretty great place.
For us though, like others, felt that the food let the glamour of the restaurant down. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, it's just that if they cook traditional Thai, then I'm going to compare it to the beachside restaurants that are about a tenth the cost for a curry.
I feel as though Black Ginger and Indigo Pearl need to be more adventurous with their food - take a look at Jimmy Liks or Ms G's in Sydney for an idea of really exciting Thai. This way it won't be easily compared to the cheap delicious curries on the beach.
The Brunch at Indigo Pearl is genuinely exciting, so I know Indigo Pearl can pull it off, they just need to do it with this restaurant.
Even if you don't need to go - head to the toilets for a squiz. Beautiful moorish tiles and design.
