“Amazing Thai at our Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We referred to Ginja Taste by our Wine Class instructors and a couple on their honeymoon. We've been in Thailand for the past 2 weeks and have eaten at street stalls, 5 star restaurants, beach side, and family owned restaurants. This was one of the best Thai meals we have had, which really surprised us. We didn't think hotel food would be this good! We ordered Paneng Gai (chicken with red coconut curry sauce) and Phad See Eiw with shrimp (large flat noodles). Both dishes were large portions that were extremely flavorful. We were offered both brown and white rice. For two people, the plates were more than enough. We were full fairly quickly, but the tastes and flavors were so tasty, we just kept on eating!

To top off the amazing dinner, the restaurant and kitchen sent us a delicious desert of mango and sticky rice along with some tea treats. The Chef came out to personally deliver the dessert and check in on us.

The service was attentive and gracious.

The restaurant overlooked the beach and had great views (even at night). Great for a romantic evening out.

Two dishes were 1000 bht which included VAT and service. It's about double you'd pay off the resort, but well worth it. We also ordered 2 drinks for 800 bht (350++).

If you stay at our near the JW Marriott, you have to eat here!

“Better than last year!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

The Ginja has improved compared to the other tahi restaurants in the area. We liked the food and service this time much better than in previous years. Still not as good and tasty as the Sala next door, but on its way.

“Totally amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We spent our last evening in Thailand in this restaurant, 3rd stay at Marriott and we were dreaming about Ginja ever since our last visit.
Food is great, you can eat some dishes you rarely find in Thai restaurants usually (like these leaves with a lot of great stuff in that you dip into this sweet sauce). Nice service and reasonable prices given the quality.
Love it, we'll be back!
