Booked our table on-line, which was a helpful option. On arrival at the hotel, panic, no signage for the restaurant! There was a wedding party going on, so didn't want to intrude on that, asked a waitress in the French restaurant, & neither of us had a clue what the other one was saying! Eventually the Maitre D from the... More

We spent the day in the spa and as part of our day got a 2 course lunch meal. Dumplings and a mushroom salad to start which were both delicious. For mains we chose the duck and a Thai green curry. These were even better and both of us agreed that the food was brilliant. We weren't ready to go... More

We were greeted by the lovely restaurant manager, the ambience was romantic and calm, and the food was beautifully presented and delicious... The starter sharing platter was a feast, and the crispy duck was perfectly tender... Make sure to try the thai pancake for pudding, a lovely surprise!

This place is amazing. I wish we didn't live so far away or we would be frequent visitors! We both had two courses and all were excellent. I'm sorry but I can't remember what they were called! But I can tell you that I had the twin prawn starter and the chicken with cashew main and my husband had the... More

The food presentation was excellent and the Thai Green Curry very tasty with lots of spice. The price was reasonable and fact it's within the zen spa you can eat whilst in your robes to add a real relaxed feel to the occasion.

My partner and I have just had dinner at the Zen. Contrary to what others are saying, we found the service really poor. They didn't know anything about the wines; the bottle of still water was served warm (they changed it to a cold one when we raised it); the cocktail appeared to have zero alcohol (they didn't charge us...

Thank you Marta for your feedback and my apologies that the service was not up to standard. I have asked my Restaurant Manager to review this immediately as clearly some retraining is needed for the team. It is a shame that you didn't find the food to be authentic, as this is cooked by an all Thai Kitchen brigade and... More
