This is royal Thai food where appearance and taste are as important as each other. There’s a vast menu, which means that there’s plenty to choose from even if you don’t like your food with a burn. Chefs’ specials include loog chin goong ping (minced prawn curry balls on a skewer served with a sweet chilli sauce) and Thai wok beef (cubed beef fillet, grilled to order, stir-fried in an oyster sauce and black pepper combination.) Western desserts like crème brûlée are given an Asian twist thanks to the addition of lemongrass and ginger. There’s also an extensive sushi menu.
There’s an impressive wine list with something for all tastes and palates.
Helpful and efficient without being obtrusive.
Opulent and upmarket with gold statues, curved walls and an eye-catching ceiling.
Go in a party and share a number of the dishes to really get a feel of the place. (JW, September 2010)
