“Wonderful food and service, a bit pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

They have an incredible food choice and absolutely everything is delicious. Prices are high for Bangkok, but if you can afford it, it is absolutely worth it.

“A must when in Bangkok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The whole experience is superb, especially if you go for dinner. You are picked up by the Mandarin Oriental boat provided that you stay on the other side of the river and take you to this wonderful place. The food is exquisite, I cannot say more. The view - one of the best in BKK.

“Nice Hotel Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Great staff who know how to run a restaurant. Always made us feel welcomed and worked to ensure we had great meals. Good drinks and located overlooking the river. They have both inside and outside seating-it was not too hot to eat outside at night in July but was nice to eat inside during the day. Get the appetizer sampler-it was a lot of fun,

“Average food - good for a quick lunch fix or coffee break.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Their food is very average - but nice presentation. Drink is also very disappointing as well. I did not like the fruit smoothie I got. The dessert is also not that impressive either.

Overall, I don't think good service alone is worth the price considering the quality of their food.

“A favorite hang-out whilst in Bangkok.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

A little embaressed to say that we ate at the hotel more often than we went out whilst in vibrant bangkok! I got brought out around the city by friends and colleagues a lot but when it came down to unwinding by myself and the family, I dined at the verandah. nothing like a good swim, bath and then sitting out there in the evening air just beside the chao praya river and tucking into the local delights which are executed to perfection! yes, you're paying a little extra for the view on top of the food but so what; service is very personalised but it could be because we were there almost every alternate day whilst staying at the mandarine.

it's an nice mix of dishes on the menu, something for everyone. i'd say that if you are looking for a place to eat out for a pleasant evening with people you love, nothing too formal but still very respectable, this is it. I wish we were still there...when i think of our stay in bangkok, i think of the times i chilled-out here. fantastic! Great views assured from all angles!
