“Exquisite food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Called by this evening as our email booking didn't get a response. By mistake we were seated in the a la carte section of the restaurant although we had wanted the buffet (after reading the reviews on TA). We had a fabulous table commanding great views of the river and all passing boats. We were able to have the buffet from our table but sadly we missed out on the band playing as we could only just hear them from where we were seated.
The buffet had every sort of food imaginable, great seafood and the tenderest roast beef fillet as well as salads and sushi and great desserts too. We ate like kings and thoroughly indulged. The bill for 2 came to about £150 (UK) with 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine once all service and taxes were added. Don't expect 'still' water to be bottled unless you ask for it. We unwittingly asked for still water and got horrid, warm tap water. Quite a shock!
I would definitely recommend this as a lovely treat. A most romantic venue.
Sadly the loos were a let down.....2 out of 4 were in a horrid state and needed a sort out! Most unpleasant by the expected 5 star standards.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Nice and relaxing, great food, good price for the location, great views of Bangkok and picking up where to go from the restaurant, i think it is better for couples alone, not sure if they take booking as we were walking in patrons, a must visit for a relaxing afternoon after a day of shopping for all those great deals, especially when you now where to find them.

“Great view with good food..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

I was there with my husband for a late lunch. It has a great river view and it's very easy to access via ferry. The food was nothing extra ordinary but the service was very good. I recommend it for lunch and afternoon tea maybe...

“Nice location, normal food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Mandarin Oriental Hotel restaurant, on the river bank,
The atmosphere is lovely, and romantic but the food is normal.
The price is justified only by the location.
