Lovely atmosphere, perfect view, attentive staff and fabulous food.
This restaurant has ticked all the boxes. The papaya salad and Tom kar mushroom soup was particularly memorable.

    Very disappointed that they advertise pre theatre menu online Monday to Friday - then tell me that's a mistake and they were changing website - still not done. Had a set menu, wouldn't recommend - some of the dishes were very nice, some fairly bland. Might be my taste preference so not for me again. The service was great, decor and furnishings to a high standard. I certainly will be back the menu showed some promising dishes and the view is utterly amazing - just reminds us there's always something new for us to see!!!

    Easy to book a table. Warm welcome on arrival. Had a guaranteed table for 2hrs 15 mins which was plenty of time! They had run out of Chardonnay which was a bit of a disappointment so had to order a more expensive wine and they didn't offer for me to pay the cheaper price. Had the tempura prawns and chicken satay as appetisers which were lovely. Then had the lamb massaman which was gorgeous. Only downside it was a little dry but there was plenty of sauce. Would definitely return
