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.

Reviewed 11 February 2020 via mobile

Dinner at The Loft overlooking the River Kwai was wonderful! The staff spoke little English but was able to make recommendations. We ordered the Venison and the black pepper soft shell appetizer. I was was extremely impressed with the food presentation and flavor. The venison...had dark chocolate shavings that just rocked the dish. One of he best dinners on our 2 week vacation. The view was romantic and peaceful. The volume of the live music was well balanced and the musicians were very talented and a pleasure. The picture was not taken from the patio but from the bridge itself.More

This was one of a few places on our list and close by to the bridge. We chose here as there were quite a few options that didn’t contain seafood. We noticed we were one of two European couples here and the restaurant was pretty...much full of locals which was a good sign. The outdoor seating area is lovely and the live band contributed to the atmosphere, pic taken from our table. The food was really good, but there were some interesting quirks in the service.... We ordered a beer and a glass of white wine, but unfortunately they had run out of wines they sell by the glass. I look at alternatives and went with a breezer, which apparently has no Bacardi in it, but is a fruit wine?! You know it’s a classy place because they tried to serve it to me in a champagne flute 🤷‍♀️ I requested a straw instead. Each table has a service trolley next to it for your drinks etc so they’re always poured for you, this is an interesting concept as we brits don’t like to be separated from our beverages, however briefly. They remain tantalising close but you get shooed away if you try and top up your own drinks 😂 to be fair, neither of us went thirsty. We ordered an appetiser and main each and having been in Thailand a while, knew it wouldn’t come in any particular order. First up were the two bowls of rice (which went cold while we waited for the rest of the food), then one of the appetisers, closely followed by the main for the same person, so his main went cold while he ate his appetiser. My appetiser came around 10 minutes later and then my main followed around 10 minutes after that. We did ask for new bowls of rice and these were provided. Lovely restaurant, comical service, but fine if you aren’t in a hurry. The staff speak little English compared to other parts of Thailand we have visited, not a problem at all, but the google translate app was invaluable at this meal.More

I have been to the Loft many times and my experience got worse every single time. I understand that there can be unfriendly staffs because they can be having a bad day. However, my experience was bad only because of the food. The taste is...not consistent and few dishes actually tasted bad... I wouldn't recommend here anymore.More

This restaurant looks good and is by the river, but the service and food was poor. After waiting for 45 minutes we had to go and get the waiter to order food. The kids ordered sushi and got their food after a little while, me...and my husband ordered the recommended ribs - the food came after the kids was gone to bed. And the meea was not tender at all. We asked for salt and pepper, and got it 25 minutes later - then the meat and four peaces of potatoes were cold. So we didnt eat anything, and nobody asked about why. We don´t recommend this restaurant.More

Very trendy and staff were very attentive. Prices were reasonable for such a nice place but higher than other local restaurants. There was live music and it had a lovely ambience. Good view of the river and great setting. That being said we didn't like...the food. Perhaps just a poor choice on our behalf so difficult to be too judgemental. Overall a lovely place to visit but maybe style over substance.More

From the moment we stepped into The Lift, we were greeted with amazing service and a lively atmosphere. At first we were given a lovely balcony table which we later changed as indoor seating was nicer. We ordered the giant barbeque shrimp (sold at market...rate by weight), vegetables with a seafood stew dip and a grilled king fish steak. Even though we are not usually seafood eaters, The Loft had us thoroughly enjoying our meals. The accompanying cocktails were also delicious. Definitely worth the price.More

We went there for something to eat and the food was good. When it comes to pay we saw that they charged us for water refils, they were refiling our glasses even if they werent half empty. We also had to pay for ice 35...baht and for water refils 90 baht!!!! We payed for water and ice almost the same amount as for the meal. For us is completly unaccetable and understandable. Never go again!More

A high ranking on TA, so worth trying. At arrival we we pleasantly surprised but the big and modern building. The ladies at the front were dressed nicely and there English was quite good. Inside there was a nice band playing live and we were...seated. At a certain moment a table at the river became available and the staff asked us if we wanted to change table. Well done guys! The menu is quite big extensive with many choices. I am not into seafood and pork and it was not easy to find something I’d like to eat. I chose chicken with cashew and curry, which was a nice meal. My wife and son had sushi and liked it. The pricing of the meals is good. Staff however hardly speak English. The 2 ladies at the entrance and one of the staff spoke English, the English of the test was terrible.More

Sitting on the River Kwai banks enjoying the excellent food along with music was fantastic. Service was a little slow as the wait staff was more interested in their phones.

We turned up without a booking on a busy public holiday evening, the place was buzzing, and we were very lucky to get a great table next to the river. Very good live band playing (but not too loud so easy to talk) for no...extra charge. Excellent food.More

Very modern architecture, outdoors as well as rooms available next to the river Kwai. The famous bridge can be seen from the location. Ambience is cosy. Food was good tasting although price is on the higher end. Life music is present on a Friday night!...Great location in a small town!More

All dishes are quite small and prices are slightly higher than elsewhere so it turns out a quite expensive dinner compared to other restaurants in the area but I had a very nice plate of spare ribs and other dishes were good too, we loved...the setting along the river, service was good.More
