There is no better way to enjoy typical Thai cuisine in great comfort than this restaurant. It is across the river from the hotel, but reachable by shuttle boat every few minutes. It is not inexpensive, but delivers value for money. One has the choice of a la carte, or buffet. And there is a choice of outdoor seating right on the river or in a traditional Thai building.

I had high expectations as this is billed as one of the best restaurants in the city, but it doesn't live up to the reputations. The appetizers were excellent, but the rest of the courses were decidedly average. I had expected exceptional food, given the prices and reputation, but it didn't come close. The waiter brought us bottled water, we later found out that it was $10/bottle! Which is ridiculously expensive. The drinks were great. The service was average. I would not recommend it, nor return myself.

What a deception!
For our last evening we wanted to make a very good Thai restaurant. Great views overlooking the river, but a poor service !
The waiter was too talkative, always skipping, not listening to our requests. I have order sticky rice with my lobster and had steam rice instead, my friend order vegetable with her lobster and the waiter forgot to bring it, we had to ask at the end. Food is OK, but not amazing. Last point, we did not tip him for the bad service, and he show his dissatisfaction, with not saying good bye.
For the supposed quality and service of the Oriental we are very disappointed.

Should you wish to discuss your experience in more detail, I would very much like the opportunity to speak with you personally. I can be reached at julia@mohg.com or via +66(0)2659 9000.

We chose this place as our tour guide recommended the dinner show in Bangkok, where we could enjoy the show while eating.
Upon the arrival, I was impressed by the traditional atmosphere. In fact, there was 2 types of seating : traditional type and modern type. Of course we picked the traditional ones.
The scale of the show was a bit small, not as my expectation. So for me, it was a little pricey.
But the service was absolutely good. The food was delicious.
For me, it's worth the trip.
