I must say Renaissance has trained their staff really well or they just have a very happy working environment. Everyone is very cheerful and treating us willingly and splendidly. Apart from those delicious Thai dishes, we had a really good time in the restaurant. Everyone is very attentive especially Amp, Sam and Pada. They made our night super special. Thanks... More

we enjoyed our dinner here very much. We were on a luxury excapes package however this restaurant refuses to accept the vouchers for cocktails, despite the fact that the Sand box does and the cocktails ordered from here come from the Sand Box so that was quite dissapointing. We waited almost 35 minutes for our orders to be taken then... More

One of the reasons we liked the preparation was because we went with very few expectations. The Prawns toast was the best amongst the lot. We ate Chicken with Red curry, chicken with green curry and a vegetable dish. The preparation was really good, simply loved the taste.

Fabulous food, excellent service by Captain Pu, Chef A and team. Great view from the balcony. Reservation is recommended to get a table with a good view. Without even asking, we were offered a buggy ride to the restaurant and back. Pity the place is open only for dinner. :(

the signature restaurant here and the food is good, very good matched by the service. Don't expect to just walk up and get a table it is very popular and can see in high season would be packed every night so book early.

If you're staying at the resort - definitely take a night or several nights to enjoy dinner here. The pomelo salad was amazing but the best thing was their black crab in chili oil curry - believe me - you'll thank me!

Description
It is here under the takieng lanterns that many guests truly discover the feast from the senses that is our national cuisine, served in rustic clay pots in a breezy Thai-style lounge with giant triangle pillows on the dark wooden floors. Hot, sour, salty and sweet, served softly, shared, and savored.
