I found raw uncooked chicken in my salad...the only think they could say was sorry and they cooked the piece of chickend and brought it back to me....I couldn't believe it.....the service was also terrible....staff was busy chatting in the kitchen....don't waste your money go somewhere else

“Restaurant Review Only”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

Book dinner for one night. To our surprise, the Thai chef answered the door. He looked tired and harrased as he showed to our table. My friend received the normal menu, but received the take away menu, which we took in our stride. We ordered our meal and waited a little while, probably due to the fact that one of the chefs was ill and the only chef there had to answer the front door as well as cook our meal. The manager of the hotel, Trevor, was too busy fussing over a group of women, who were confused over the Thai menu. The meal was pretty good after the long wait, however, as we tried to pay the manager, he insisted we pay VAT on a sit down meal, stating his accountant told him to do it!!! It took some convincing to inform him that we were not having a take-a-way and that we had in fact eating in his restuarant!

In between bizarre conversations with Trevor, we managed to pay the correct bill and got out the the restuarant, vowing never to return. This is one weird hotel. Stay here at your peril!
