“Very Good and Properly Prepared Thai Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My wife and I visited Spirit House for dinner and had a very good Thai meal. We ordered the vegetable curry and the red curry with duck. We requested "Thai spiciness" and were pleasantly surprised to receive properly spiced dishes with some decent kick. In general, both dishes were excellent and the duck red curry was quite innovative as it includes lychee and grapes, which make for a unique flavor with the duck. For dessert we had the mango sticky rice, which was good, though it could've been a little bit better. Last, the open air seating is nice and comfortable. Just be certain to bring insect repellant or request it from your server. We plan to return again soon so that's probably the best endorsement of our visit.

“Trapped”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

After reading some reviews from TA, we have decided to give it a go. But so sorry this is not even close to what I ve read. The restaurant is full of mosquitoes. We asked to change table but still around 20 of them surrounding me all the time. The food we ordered are terrible. Children meal Stir fried chicken with vege is Spicy. We asked to changed another one, it is also spicy. Huh.... Not to mention about the other dishes. We just can't wait to leave same as the other table sitting next door. Asked for the bill they said credit card not acceptable. what a joke! Do not go there, you have been warned. I was there yesterday at 1900.

“Exotic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The food is amazing and so was the decor. The whole area turns into a paradise at night with lovely lights. The garden is huge and includes a spa.

“Good food but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Beautfiul setting-very tropical and lush green. The food was delicious- the massaman beef curry was amazing. Very pricey though so maybe best for a special occasion meal.

“Very Atmospheric, real Thai Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Well worth a visit!

A two tier restaurant in the heart of Chaweng close to the Walking Street. Really atmospheric with lily pond and teak beams set into the city walls. Just like steping back in time.

Good Thai menu with some western dishes. Really good service. Try the golden bags. Tasty starters. The seafood eas reallyfresh - try the seabass in lime, garlic and chilli and the Tamarind Prawns.

goo Thia menu oldy worldy
