“Authentic Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

From the entrance, the walk thru' the garden, arriving at the stairs to the elevated Dining Area and on arriving, the WOW factor was very much in evidence.
The Menu choice was superb, the taste of the food also superb,
another gem to experience, another "must visit"

“Try the set menus for two”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

Nice restaurant in quality of food and ambiance. I can understand that on a quiet night with your table only 2 persons that this place can be a bit too quiet, but since we were a group of 7 this was not an issue. The whole package is very good value. We had 3.5 set menus, each for two persons with 4 different dishes plus desert, 3 bottles of wine, and coffee for THB 10,500, thus THB 1500 per person. Great value for relatively upscale restaurant.

Difficult to find, so here instructions: main Chaweng road, southern end near the lake, part where one-way street (south-bound) starts, turn into the side street in front of restaurant The Grill (big blue sign), past Nantra, you will have the entrance on the right.

“Relaxing up market place with calm atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Situated in a town center, surprising to find such verdant greenery. Nicely decorated,with comfortable seating, excellent service,the food was interesting and tasty. Not cheap but better value than the, 4 Seasons, where we lunched a couple of weeks before

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Spirit house is ok. Food is of a good average and service is nice, difficult to find bad service in Asia. Expensive for what you get. Nice location in a terrible town.

“Nice grounds but overly quiet and a bit dull”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Food was mixed, betel leave app was bland and so was the pepper squid. But the tamarind whole fish was excellent. Grounds feel authentic and it is a nice relaxing setting. Was overly quiet the night we were there and felt a bit dull. It is a large place so difficult for them to conjure up atmosphere. Prices are mid range, so is the food, service and experience

spirithouse_12, Owner at Spirit House Restaurant, responded to this review, March 4, 2014
I thank you for your response and a little disappointed we did not live up to our reputation.Particularly surprised as Wild Rainbow Lilies and Salt and Pepper Squid are two of our most popular and successful dishes so I will follow this up.
I thought you were a little harsh with your comments in relation to the atmosphere as Spirit House Village is regarded as one of the most unique dining experiences in Thailand,that is, dining in a Thai temple in beautiful tropical gardens.Many local and overseas television stations have filmed specials here.
Yes,we are a large restaurant how-ever it is our low season and we have political turmoil in Bangkok which has resulted in vast numbers of tourists staying away and thus the low numbers in the restaurant.
