This is a very good way to get a great taste of Thai food. You have to be careful on what you pick and request the food to the spice level that you like. Just remember Thai spice level is a lot higher than most people. Food is very good. Service is very good as well.

Good staff and choice but buffet wildly varying in quality - signs were mixed up and food was not hot from due to being left out for quite a while. Ok as a stop off point but caters to the masses first and foremost.

We came here as part of a tour and rather enjoyed the selection of food. The views were stunning, opposite the Bridge on the River Kwai and the banana tree in the middle of the restaurant made for a lovely snack. The jewellery shops next to the restaurant, or part of it???, were a treat.

Great value and absolutely delicious food which I would thoroughly recommend. The only negative is that they seem to have a limited play list of one song which is on repeat.

We ate here once and it's a lovely setting but make sure you use Mossie spray first, we were well bit. The staff were not over friendly, which is unusual in Thailand. The food was OK, I enjoyed mine but my husband want so keen. Also quite pricey.

There is really nothing to commend this place, save its location on the river. When we visited, the restaurant was largely empty and had as much atmosphere as, well, an empty restaurant. Despite the lack of custom, service was slow and unfriendly, and the food, for some reason, delivered to a delivery point where it waited until somebody stirred themselves... More

After viewing and walking the bridge we went down to this floating restaurant. Service was good. The location is superb. You get to watch the long boats come in under the bridge. You can feed the fish. We were there at the right time as the train crossed. As for my Pad Thai. Had to be up there with one... More

We went there to celebrate my prospective nephew's birthday with the whole family. As we went in the middle of the week, the place was quite empty, which was nice, as the whole staff took care of us :-) Since it was in the evening, the view was limited, but I guess it is very nice during the day.
