Reading the other reviews we started as being reluctant . Were told that food has no Thai flavor and is $$$. Well, this is a magic place that worths every penny. The reservation we made it 2 days before, while visiting the resort. Nothing complicated,...More

Black Ginger has the coolest design and experience of any restaurant I’ve visited in Thailand - by a wide margin. If you value design and some general crazyness, this might be very much a place for you. However - do not visit for exciting tastes...More

We like the decoration and the menu, almost everything is about presentation. The taste is also good but nothing exquisite. The service is also good, but need a bit of training to match the decor.
