We ate here whilst staying at the Slate. Amazing ambiance paired with amazing food! Fab evening. Obviously not as cheap as the local restaurants but well worth the extra spend.

Although this hotel is so close to the airport, it is so secluded you feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle. The restaurant is so romantic and beautiful and tasteful. Staff is super friendly and service is impeccable. The steamed snapper with chilli and lime is perfect. The rest is not bad for the the price. Had... More

Black Ginger is a beautiful spot for date night. A raft takes you across a short stretch of water to the restaurant, which is lit with flame torches, candles and trendy lighting. The food is Thai and the chef is happy to adapt the level of spice for diners. Surprisingly this did not effect the flavour of the dishes as... More

Pro: very romantic, nice staff, food quality ok HOWEVER cons outweigh the positives : restaurant not special at all and for this totally overprized. You get the same dishes at better price, same quality and bigger portions easily somewhere else -> Conclusion: Better have a nice dinner at one of the restaurants at the beach

Black Ginger is an absolutely fantastic place located inside the Slate hotel on Nai Yang beach. Particularly at nighttime, the decor is amazing but the service goes into hiding. The restaurant is entered via barge and a great experience illuminated by fire. The decor and experience is a lot of fun, but that's where it ends. There are a ton... More

Could not have been more impressed with Black Ginger. From the beautiful cocktails that borderline artwork to the food that absolutely blew my mind, this goes down as the most enjoyable dining experience of my life. The ambience was 10/10 - truly magical on an out-of-this-world scale. The chef even came out to ask how we were enjoying the food.... More

After reading all the amazing reviews about this place we chose it for a very special occasion for 8 of us. Sadly we were all disappointed. There is no doubt the location is beautiful as it's set on a lagoon and you are pulled across the lagoon on a raft towards the restaurant which is a nice touch. The exterior... More

Amazing setting on a moated 'island' that you reach by rope pulled platform. Fun setting, nice cocktails and good food. We asked for thai hot food and we got it! Chef came out and greeted tables, expensive but fun setting for a special night out. Cocktail bar staff could be more friendly/attentive, took ages to get served and it wasn't... More

Dear ggrinda, Thank you so much for the review. We are so happy all was perfect. With regards to the wine comment, our prices are very much reasonable and competitive, you can trust us. What our guests need to know is Thailand taxes wines at a very high rate which is the reason why the cost price of the wines... More
