i have eaten here on all previous trips to thailand and alwasy been impressed but not this time, the cocktails seem to be lacking in alcohol, i was almost being annoyed by staff until a table of eight arrived then i was hard pressed to get any attention at all, they even forgot my dessert order, but i think my biggest disappointment was my favourite dish, red duck curry was more red pineapple curry hunt for the duck pieces if you dare. It may have been an off night but a restaurant of this standard should do better. I did notice for the first time that they have a 1991 award for best of the best in the world, when an award is 21yrs old it sort of loses its relevance I think and should be removed,very disappointing, I wont be back.

Heard about this restaurant from a friend who visited it before and went based on recommendation as well as reviews on TA. However, we were a little disappointed with Thanying. Touted as serving Royal Thai Cuisine, Thanying has been around for many years and has garnered a reputation.

The decor was pretty nice and more of traditional thai, but a little dated(especially after visiting Ruen Urai). Service was only just above average we felt. Foodwise, the pandan chicken was really good, so was the Prawn with fried basil and chilli. The fishcakes were good too. However the rest of the dishes we ordered, such as Tom Yum Goong and Krab Pao Moo were disappointing, especially the Tom Yum.

Prices are on the higher side and well I would say we probably won't return because there are other more worthy upscale thai cuisine restaurants in BKK that are better in many aspects.

Staying at the Easton Grand Hotel, Jo, one of the concierges recommended us to try this Thai restaurant. The ambience is nice and relaxing, the staff are very good but the chef deserves a medal for serving up food this good! Best Thai meal we've ever eaten.
