Wow!!! This place was amazing. A really stunning location right at the top of tree tops in the rainforest at the Datai hotel and quite literally one of the best meals I've ever had. The waiter asked us how hot and spicy on a scale of 1-10. We chose 3 and for me it was perfect. The steamed black cod... More

We didn't book at the Pavillion as it's super quiet everywhere but it's a bit of a trek to get there. When we arrived we were made to feel rather unwelcome by the man on the door and they made a fuss about whether there was space in the restaurant. When they eventually let us in there was loads of...

Great service and delicious food. The meals are reasonably priced and the views are great! Reserve a table around the edge for the best seating.

We couldn't believe that authentic taste.....it's the best Thai restaurant outside of Thailand. The head chief is passionate about the food, freshness and quality. It really does deserve 10 out of 10

Another very pleasant meal at the Datai. We all managed to find something we liked and whilst service was a little slow to start with we would go back.

I had Thai food in many places but this is one of the best. Tom Yum Goong soup is next to nothing. Just a simple steam and sticky rice is so tasty. Phad Thai, pineapple fried rice, morning glory and a fish dish are soooo yummy. And the architecture of the place is amazing. It is built on top of... More

The best restaurant of the Datai resort. Parfait balance of spices and herbs in this refined cuisine. One of our favorite : the crispy red snapper. Great staff as well.

Thank Lionel N
