Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This restaurant is wayyyyyyy OVERRATED and OVERPRICED for the quality of food it offers. We made a reservation here based on the good reviews that we read online and it was supposed to be the highlight dinner of our trip. But instead it turned out...to be a MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT. The sample platter of appetisers is made up of greasy, deep fried ingredients. I suspect they had been deep fried more than once. The spring roll came very burnt to the point of black, yet it made it to our plate. What a mess! The crispy roasted duck in red curry was the worst. It tasted like a bottle of salt fell into it. Super salty! We returned this to the kitchen. The wok-fried soft shell crab was also not good. It was also a bit too salty and we couldn’t taste the crab because the yellow curry egg sauce was just so overpowering. The only good dish was the plain Thai berry rice. The overall food quality was very poor. The only thing that saved this restaurant was the ambiance and the service (they took the duck dish off our bill and comped a fruit platter). We spent around 2000 baht at this restaurant (the most expensive dinner we had on this trip) yet this was also the worst dinner we had. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!More
