Have visited 3 or 4 times in the last 2 months. While the ambience and food is exactly what to expect (food sufficiently spicy, ambience relaxed, comfortable and enjoyable) the service is a bit hit and miss. Also, if ordering jasmine rice, be aware they will serve you plain boiled rice and claim that is the way it should be...!... More

I've dined at Muhibbah in the past and enjoyed it, but it's been at least 6-8 months since the last time I ate there until recently. Sadly, the kitchen has taken a nosedive during that time. The food, even basic pad thai, was inedible. The spices used were not Thai, and the food was overly-garlicky. The appetizer was super deep... More

This restaurat is set in a relatively quiet corner of the hotel, ideal for couples and dinner dates. The staff were excellent and the reserved table for 2 was just right in front of the open kitchen, which I liked. The decor and ambiance is quite something to write home about.There's an extensive wine list and the sommelier tends to... More

Had dinner at the Thai restaurant. Worst thai food i have had. On the menu items with gluten were listed but then it was realised that all these were misprints. Anyway the chef said we could order the drumsticks. We paid for bloody fried chicken which was not of 5 star quality what so ever. The whole menu was a... More

Have visited Muhibbah several times (have to admit sometimes twice in the same week). If you like pan-asian, Thai inspired food, it's the place for you. Really tasty authentic dishes and a well priced wine list. Would recommend drinks after at the bar across the hallway. Service is superb! Not cheap, but worth every shilling.

I didn't really give the choice of this restaurant much thought as I stumbled upon it in the hotel I was staying in. However, I was glad I did. The food was fantastic of a high quality and affordable but fairly predictable. The service was impeccable and the staff friendly. It's worth nipping up to the roof bar afterwards for... More

Sankara should have rally done better given how incredibly pricey the menu is. The restaurant is a bit pretentious given you have to make a reservation otherwise they refuse to serve you. When we got there there were so many empty tables! The restaurant feels like a fast food place and the decor and ambience is really lacking. The food... More

Just had dinner at Muihbbah. We were looking for some place that did South Eastern cuisine and M fit the bill. We made a reservation, just in case. Fortunate for us as the place was quite full shortly after we got in there, though nearly all others were walk ins. The staff are very pleasant and friendly. You are given... More
