“Great Food, Great Services”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Having a great dinner with my family in Takieng restaurant at Renaissance resort. We ordered Pla Sam Rod (Best Ever). Tom Yum Talay (You probably need to tell them how spicy you would like them to pour) or else they could pour it with their standard (un-spicy) We did requested for super spicy. At the end of course, you probably need to try Thai desserts. I personally like "Tub Thim Krob". At last and the most important thing in this restaurant is their services. We are happy with their services and how much they care about us during our dinner. You probably won't forget the moment. :).

“Great thai food!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Coming from Singapore, we DO get access to pretty good local food around the SE asia region. I have to say the thai food at Takieng is really GOOD. It is as local as it gets. If you're going to stay at Renaissance, you could you NOT try Takieng. The desserts were awesome. Try the roasted pumpkin with ice cream.

Big props to Pu, a waitress that served us. She was very helpful, professional and friendly. She made the restaurant experience all that much better. Attentive and everything. You wouldn't have any problems with service here, just having a hard time deciding what to eat!

Great experience. highly recommended.

“A nice place with delicious thai food on the beach front”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Spending a week-end in Renaissance hotel, we had a nice dinner in Takieng restaurant.
Very fresh and tasty thai food. The dishes are well executed with a lot of flavours. The chef can adjust spiciness according to you palate, which I much appreciate as I don’t like too much spicy.
The staff is very attentive and friendly, but not too much, letting you enjoy your time during your dinner. Any special request, they will do their best to accommodate.
And I would say that the great value is the place and I recommend the terrasse, enjoying the sound of waves breaking on the beach, with an option on traditional Thai table where you can lie on fluffy cushions. Very nice lightings and wood decoration give a cosy, soft and relaxing atmosphere.
Prices are ok regarding the quality.
I definitely recommend this restaurant, as you are a guest of the hotel or not.
