THE GOOD: The restaurant is beautiful, open air, great service and truly awesome authentic Thai cuisine. Is now in my top 2 of Thai restaurants in the world. A little pricey but well worth it.

Tom yum was very delicious but it served in a too small portions. Do request the spicy level to be mild if you could not handle spicy food.

In our one-week stay at The Datai we ate dinner here 4 times! It was so delicious - the spring rolls, red curry with beef, Pad Thai and greens were our choices every single time. We loved it!

For sure, the food comes with a spicy kick all Thai food lovers would know. Best part was being entertained by hornbills while waiting for our food. The structure is amazing, perched on the hillside. And the food was as good as in Thailand. Love the ambience 👍
