“Great cultural experience in Bangkok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Took my visiting family here so that they could experience some true Thai food and culture and we weren't disappointed. The short ferry ride on a teak boat, was a nice precursor to a lovely evening. Staff were very attentive, the food was presented to a high standard and tasted very good. The best element was the thai dancing and music.

Highly recommend this place if you would like a dining experience with a bit of culture thrown in. We would go back but as we have seen the cultural performance, next time we will opt for the outdoor dining on the terrace as the riverside location looked very romantic and here you have a choice of an al-a-carte menu whereas if you sit inside to experience the cultural performance, you must have a set menu.

The boat ride on the river from one end of the hotel to the restaurant was really nice. Cultural performance was good. Food was ok but service was not what I'd expect for MO

“Add a bit of culture to your Bangkok visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

As it was my choice to watch the dance performance, so seating inside was great. Great food, the menu will fill you to the brim, and the show is very relaxing. Food and service were great,,
