We dined with my family during an overnight stay at Stanley hotel. We had read the reviews before our visit and we went there with positive dispositions. We were not disappointed; We had a great culinary experience, at a nice ambience, and with excellent service by Alex and other waiters.

The Stanley Hotel has a fantastic Thai restaurant; the Thai Chi. The food is traditional Thai, accompanied by options of soothing hot green tea as well as a wonderful wine list.

The offer a... More
