“Simply sublime”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We stayed at the Royal Embassy Resort in December 2013 and had the pleasure of eating the culinary delights that the Ambassador Bistro serves up (its the restuarant at the resort). Dont be put off by the 'Bistro' word - I know in the UK this probably conjours up some snobby chic restaurant tryng to be something its not! Thats not the case here - the service, presentation and quality of the food in a relaxing atmosphere are the best we experienced anywhere in Kamala, in fact anywhere in Phuket at this price (very reasonable).
We ate here on several occasions (breakfast and dinner) and whilst the adults (me and the wife!) had wonderfully cooked and presented Thai dishes, our two young children had equally good Western food that was freshly prepared and tasted delicious.
I have no doubt that the hard working management, staff and chef - who all clearly take great pride in what they do - will make the Bistro a major success, just as they have done with the resort itself. Thanks Phil and team!

“Ambience ,Fine Cuisine and Service”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

we went to the Ambassador Bistro for dinner and left with smiles.
A lovely setting located in the Resort.
The staff have obviously had formal training as they were attentive but not intrusive.
Nothing beats a smile and we received many here from both the floor staff and the chef who ventured out to enquire about our meals.
The food itself was very enjoyable and the Menu gave us a good mix of Thai and European Cuisine.
I ordered the La-tiang Shrimps as a starter and my taste buds were awoken.
Followed by a superb Lobster Soup that had me wanting more.
The timing between courses was almost clockwork perfect with enough time to talk and taste my wine.
Finally I had one of my favourites the Roast duck with red curry.
Again the flavours were superb and cooked to perfection.
I did not dare order desert in case I would never leave.
A thoroughly enjoyable Dinning experience and a great asset for Kamala.
We will come again soon.

“OUTSTANDING FOOD OUTSTANDING VENUE”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We ate here the first night in Kamala then didn't go anywhere else all the time we were there. Thats how good it was. From the setting which is such a quiet oasis to the service which is so good. The thai food is just amazing. The presentation is as good as anywhere in thailand and the taste is the same. What really tops it off is the price. Its as cheap if not cheaper than anywhere else but so much better.
It may be a little difficult to find but it is located in the Royal Embassy Resort and spa located just off to the left as you leave Kamala towards Patong.
Definitely worth a visit

“WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

On a trip to Phuket we had the most amazing experience at the Ambassador Bistro, Kamala. The Thai food was the best ever tasted, the presentation, service and setting was lovely. Dining by the pool at night with candles and white tablecloths was very romantic!! As a couple travelling around we would recommend this experience every time. Also, to stay as a family, with the pool and value for money it was great.

“Beautiful food, great restaurant”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We ate at the Ambassador Bistro a number of times throughout our stay in Thailand. The food was second to none, beautifully presented and by far the nicest of the restaurants we tried in the area. We were even able to eat out by the pool one evening which was so beautiful with lights around the pool and in the trees. Definitely recommended!
