- Cuisines: Asian, Thai, Pan-Asian & Pacific Rim
The Oriental Hotel re-opened this beautiful riverside Thai restaurant in late 2007 with a glittering new interior but the same impeccable standards of cuisine and commendable entertainment. The location is across the river from the main hotel, and the ferry boat ride across is quite lovely. The set menu is more like an extensive dégustation menu of Thai favorites. Nothing is too heavy, but do mention to the waiter before your dine if you can't take spicy food. Guests can choose between sitting Thai-style on floor pillows or the plush Western-style seating, from where they watch classical Thai dancers, in full glittering regalia, perform ancient Thai legends and rousing drum-frenzied folk dances. A free shuttle boat leaves the hotel's pier regularly; or take the BTS to Saphan Taksin and follow the signs to the Hotel Shuttle Boat pier, just next to Central Pier.
