Their buffet lunch is value for money. If you seat near the window, you will have a great view of the river. Service is in general good. There was once service was bad and I complained to the hotel, it becomes good thereafter.More

Yes, there are two - fixed and a la carte. We went with the fixed and were quite disappointed. It was pricey by Thai standards. The show was fabulous, the food - not so much.
