“Such a great looking restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

My boyfriend and I both live and work in Zadar 8 months of the year, so we've dined out a lot in that time. We think this restaurant is fantastic! They have a pool in the middle of the patio, You could even swim off your meal if you really wanted to! The staff there are great. The really make you feel welcome. The menu is limited, but completely understandable as certain ingredients are simply unavailable in Croatia. They have done a good job with the items that they do have. Definitely would recommend!

“Like eating in someone's home.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

After almost 2 weeks of eating traditional food in Slovenia & Croatia we were delighted to see the Pearl of Siam on the way to our Hotel. When we went by at lunch they looked open. However, we found out that they're not open for lunch, but were having a special lunch for a group of Thai tourists. That whetted our appetite even more.We went back for dinner. The decor is beautiful! The owner is Croatian, but has decorated the whole place with Thai art that she brought back on her yearly trips there. She speaks some English, but it is broken. The rest of the staff is Thai and hardly speak any English at all, but are very gracious. Ordering is difficult because there is no set menu. You can order whatever you want in each category and they'll make it for you. Phad thai which is usually the test of a good Thai restaurant was not even on the menu. She said they could make it, but we decided to try the appetizer platter which sounded good. They were a bit disappointing. The satay was cut up in little bits rahter than on sticks and the peanut sauce was not spicy. Most of the other items seemed warmed up. (Perhaps from the luncheon.) The green chicken curry was pretty good, but the sauce was thin and without any coconut milk. The shrimp dish was also OK, but seemed lacking in something. Service, as mentioned, is very slow. I think they would benefit by providing a real menu with a small number of dishes and perhaps, a couple of set menus for 2 people, 3 people, etc.

“Great thaï food but strange people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We had a great meal but they have a strange way in ordering meals: you don't get a menu, they come to your table and discuss with you what you want to eat.. Was very confusing, also because the waitress couldn't speak English that well.
