This stay did not disappoint, the bathroom stank of Cigarettes and was unacceptable, so after a room change,...

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Rasoi. The starter was good but the main course was average at best and did not live up to our expectations, which is...

It's the best place to stay. Especially, Thai Royal Restaurant is the best for Thai food. Good service and also good food. Don't miss it if you want to have good memories. It's expensive to me but everything here is worth to pay (:

The TexMex food was good. Everything was prepared fresh and tasted good. The whole experience was spoiled by the live music - it was far too noisy and this ruined the meal. I would go again for the food but if there was live music/singing again then I would avoid it.
