By far my favourite buffet breakfast in Pattaya. It eclipses Apex Hotel's but it it for me is still lacking something that makes it great and worthy of 5 stars. Based at the lower level of a hotel seating is sufficiently spacious. The buffet is lined up against the windows. Cereal, toast, pastries, fruit, soups, pancakes, baked beans are some... More

All the staff in this hotel are very helpful and happy to help and explain about the food. The staff whether it is the morning shift doing the breakfast or the second shift that comes on at 3.00 PM for the evening shift, no matter staff from both shifts are super.

The restaurant is located opposite the beach. This allows for great views. It has an inside, an outside open air and an outside covered area which is great. The staff was really friendly and did their best to make you feel welcome even though the language sometimes was a bit of a problem. There was always someone that they could... More

Fourth time we have visited Pattaya and we always eat in the LK The Empress. The food is excellent and so are the cocktails. The staff can't do enough to help especially Catherine who we have became friends over the years. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I enjoyed the LK the Empress (also called Le Kitchen?) Restaurant a lot. An excellent menu of Thai and Western dishes. I had excellent Green and Red curries and, with an American friend from Bangkok, a BBQ Salmon dish that was really delicious. Pole position for me was the elevated section overlooking the Beach Road, with all the atmosphere one... More

Dinner here was excellent in terms of food quality. Service was also good. However, if you go for breakfast around 1000hrs, you have to nail your coffee and plate to the table. They are very keen to get cleared away! Breakfast is supposed to run till 1100hrs but the staff are really keen to get the place cleared and are... More

Second time this year I have stayed and no issues at all. Food is great with awesome cocktails. Situated directly opposite the beach the view is amazing and the hawkers can not get to you.
