Great food and even better cooking school. I wrote another a review under the hotel heading for the JW regarding the cooking school. Long winded so not doing it twice. But was the best cooking class I have ever done.

I had two experiences with this restaurant. I took a cooking class with Chef Kong . And booked a private chefs table dining experience for 6 adults and 3 children. The cooking class took us first to the market to learn how to pick out the freshest ingredients and then the humorous and kind and patient chef first showed us... More

Food was excellent and service over the top. Outside seating is romantic and beautiful, overlooking the ocean. Wait staff was really keen on helping with recommendations which we loved!

Good Thai food and nice setting for a restaurant. We had the pad Thai and green curry, both were very good but felt it was pricey- we appreciate you can't compare it to local restaurants but even for a hotel we felt it was at the higher end. Be careful of mosquitos if you sit outside!

Whether you are eating at the restaurant or taking a cooking class (YES - Ginja Cooking Class is world class!), Ginja Taste is the "GO TO" Thai food on the island, and a highlight of my trip! Now I need to start building up my Thai recipe repertoire! Looking forward to my return in 2017! Compliments to: Chef Tham, Chef... More

Had a pleasant experience at Ginja taste in Phuket - ordered a selection of different Thai specialties including the fried fish, papaya salad, spicy chicken cashew, and som tom goong soup - and with the excellent service had a wonderful time with our family. There was an extensive menu which had both local specialities and popular Thai dishes that we... More

We revisited this restaurant during our stay at Renaissance. First of all, they are not expensive but bad Thai food restaurant situated in JW Marriott. Far more than that. They offered authentic Thai food. Their service is unbeatable. Smiles everywhere, always concern about your liking and opinion about their quality of food. Of course, talking about the price, it is... More

I ate with 7 other people. Two ordered the set menus ( for 2 people), which are expensive but decent value. The food is presented well and the selection good. Taste is suited to people not used to very spicy food. Two of us ordered the fried rice and stir-fried noodles, the cheapest items on the menu. At Baht 460... More

We splurged on Ginja Taste for our last night in Thailand. The check-in staff at the Marriott highly recommended this restaurant for an "authentic Thai dining experience." They also recommended making reservations. The Good: An extensive menu Convenient to Marriott The Disappointing: Unless an "Authentic Thai Dining Experience" includes LOTS of screaming kids/babies, we were less than impressed. While I...

Ate here on a couple of occasions and the food and service were consistently good. I like the fact that they don't try to alter the dishes from how they should be, if they are supposed to be spicy then they are made spicy. There are some great vegetable dishes including one that is made from a local leafy vegetable.... More
