Description: The Rain Tree Café has been reconceived in a modern interpretation of Thai neo-colonial interior décor + style. Three separate but complementary spaces evidencing extreme elegance and making excellent use of natural light are interwoven with threads of touching homeliness. These three unique areas are cleverly interwoven and are aptly named: The Bronze Kitchen upgraded with interactive live cooking stations, The Valaya Room with its formal library-style "VIP" space and The Secret Garden for more private affairs. Enjoy an inspiring voyage of discovery on our stunning international buffet that also features five specialty dishes of the day from our specialist head chefs. Service for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Sunday Brunch and Dessert Buffet.

“Don't ever eat here........ if you're on a diet!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

We organize regular meetings at Plaza Athenee and I therefore have the pleasure of eating the lunch buffet at the The Rain Tree Cafe fairly often. The buffet is phenomenal! Dozens of salad choices, sushi and shashimi, cheeses, lobster and shrimp, pasta, noodles, fish, always a fabulous main meat choice and several meat options, shellfish, endless deserts, fruits, and fruit juices.

I challenge anyone to partake of this buffet without overeating! But, the wonderful tastes are well worth the added calories! Highly recommended for anyone wanting a special, exceptionally delicious lunch or brunch!

“10/10”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

I need this collective to follow me through life, feeding me and teaching me. Interesting people in a great setting. Nothing looked out of place and the food was divine.

I don't have a criticism. Tasty authentic thai food.
