“Mouth Watering Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

I attended a family birthday at Mariams last weekend and I have to say it was the most beautiful Thai food I've had in a long time. We were a group of 12 and ordered the banquet menu but as several people were unable to eat chilli, we asked for it to be left out of all the dishes. Everyone was happy and could eat whatever they wanted. Service was good although the wait between entree and mains was a little long, however, it is the Xmas season and they were busy with other group bookings besides ours. Location is good with easy parking. Price is suitable for any budget.

“Yum Yum Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

we just googled the nearest Thai restaurant to where we were staying and up came Mariams. We didn't book just walked in off the street as it was a Wednesday, we got a table straight away but the restaurant was busy and full of laughter.
the food was beautiful, we had curries, beef with garlic and soy sauce. chicken satay skewers and rice. All were good sized portions and very tasty. had a bottle of wine aswell and it was very reasonably priced
would definitely come back again if i was in the area

“Not memorable”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

The food was bland (for Thai food), service was slow and unattentive. Bar selection is poor. Not a memorable dining experience.

“I've had better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013

The hotel's receptionist suggested this place to try when we told her we were looking for a Thai dining place. She said it was really good and that this is the only Thai restaurant she goes to. We booked for 7:30pm for 5 people. When we got there we only saw one couple sitting inside and I've had my doubt already. The dining area is quite spacious & the 2 waiters inside were a little too slow in greeting us, they were having a lovely chat behind the bar tucked in to the farthest corner of the restaurant. Our Entrees of Fish cakes were tasteless and instead of the usual cucumber sauce that goes with Fish Cakes, they gave us sweet chili sauce. The Chicken Satay were not as tender as we expected & the Tom Ka Gai soup was too watery & too sweet. The Beef & Basil Stir Fry was a bit watery & sweet as well, the Chicken Massaman Curry were extremely sweet & too much sauce. The only thing we were happy with was the Thai Fried Rice. When I inquired with the waitstaff why they didn't ask us if we'd prefer our dish mild, medium, hot or Thai hot like in many other Thai places, they told me that all the food were automatically set in Medium unless customers stated otherwise. They need to communicate better with their customers in the future. Even what they termed 'medium' was still way too sweet for our liking. When they tried to temp us with their desserts we insisted in paying the bill and left for a McDonald's Soft Serve instead! Just kidding :)) For Thai food lovers who prefer their food mildly spicy & sweet this might be alright place to try.
