Amazingly extensive menu, almost overwhelming. Great venue beach side. We had outside table. Enjoyed Prawns vermicelli (deep fried great sauce) Rice paper rolls (three different fillings) and Lobster. Opted for the Thai Sangria ( too sweet). The staff will assist in ensuring the excessive chilli content of some dishes is "dialled back" if required. Good night. Have a sunset drink... More

Hosted in the cookery school for just the two of us like a 'Chef's Table' for my birthday, a real treat organised by Didier the Assistant Director of F & B at J W Marriott. The food prepared and superbly presented by the team originated from ancient recipes so it was quite different to what we were used to in... More

Did the Thai cookery class with chef Kong whilst on a family holiday. It was amazing. Chef Kong was a great host and really friendly. we made some amazing dishes and the setting of the school itself was great. It was good value for money considering you get to eat the food afterwards and it includes a trip to the... More

Food and service were fantastic. Lesson learnt though- organic chicken is tough and not well marinated. Other than that, we had great chicken curry (chicken is tender, curry is on the spicy side, so please ask for less spicy if need be), great fish and vegetables. The service was memorable and the lady who helped us that night was honest.... More

Great Option if you are staying at the JW Marriott. Food is excellent and the service was stellar. Price was ok for Marriott but high for Thailand.

Had dinner here this week and average is probably the very best I can say about this place. We ordered 3 different curries and all were incredibly sweet, too sweet for our taste. With a shared starter and three main courses plus a bottle of wine the cost came to £150. Whilst dining, ants poured across the table and when... More

The best local food at this impressive resort. Always freshly cooked and wonderful tastes. Service is excellent too. A must whilst staying here and right next to the beach whilst listening to the waves. I particular recommend the Chiang Mia Noodles and Beef and Pumpkin yellow curry.

Service was fantastic and the food was really top notch. We could not help but returning to this restaurant the following evening. The curries are really great and the starters truly excellent.

We have eaten here every time we stayed at the Marriott and each time it's as good! Excellent food and excellent service and truly a beautiful setting whether your table is inside or out. You need to try both as a completely different experience!
