Called in for a late lunch. Despite being the only ones in they couldn't have been nicer, very friendly. Good value for money. Would recommend.

We recently visited John's garden as it is local to our hotel. We were sat in one of the little huts which is very nice and private. Both food and drinks were lovely, highly recommend visiting here. Peaceful garden, nice staff and great food.

This restaurant has it all - great food, great ambience and lovely surroundings. With individual little eating gazebos, this is a great place to chill with your partner or with the family and enjoy good, honest Thai cuisine. From the outside it doesn't strike you, but the moment you walk through the entrance you're taken into another world, with the... More

Lovely garden and friendly staff. Food was good but could have more of an edge to it. My food was served luke warm and missed a bit the Thai flavour. The homemade ice creams are absolutely fabulous although a bit on the pricey side. The kids loved the space but it's an equally great restaurant for a romantic dinner.

The setting in the lovely well maintained garden was the best of all the places we ate. The food was good although the menu was fairly limited. The service was attentive and prompt. Not open Sunday.

Before coming to Maenam we looked at restaurants and really wanted to try here just because of the setting, if not anything else. The location is down a side road so we probable wouldn't have found it without seeing on here first. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great last night but still the outside location/lighting/setting is stunning. The food was great... More

Tempted by the good reviews and the location. Agree with parts of many of the other reviews. Great location and setting. Food was good quality and tasty but no better than other meals we have recently experienced and the portions were on the small side. Service was friendly from one guy, neutral from another and pretty grumpy from a third.... More
