“Thai Cuisine at its Worst”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Our family of seven with two kids decided to try the Suan Bua on our arrival day at the Centara Grand. With the drive from Bangkok, we want a simple evening with familiar Thai food. In addition, the environment and the atmosphere of the restaurant was appealing.

We ordered over six different dishes and few with double portion e.g. chicken wrapping, pad thai, lemon fish, two other fish dishes, and pineapple rice. When the food was served we realized that either the cook has limited experience with Thai cuisine or the food was meant for foreigner with toned down taste. After finishing our meal, I asked the waitress why the pineapple rice was so soggy since it was suppose to be fried rice in a pineapple shell. She could not give me an good answer but simply said the juice from the pineapple may mixed with the fried rice.

In our family we normally do not criticize the quality of the food while we were eating. However after the dinner, we all agreed that the food in the Suan Bua Restaurant was below our expectation.

Dear Charn P,

Thank you for taking time to write a review about our Suan Bua Tha Restaurant!

We are sorry to read that you did not enjoy your dining experience at our restaurant.

We were surprised to read your comments about the taste of all dishes, as on the evening itself you have only mentioned that the “fried rice with the pineapple was soggy” according to our staff member.
Please accept our apologies if it was not to your taste, however as we use the fresh pieces of pineapple, the dish is likely intended to not to be dry.
We do sincerely regret that you only mentioned it to our staff when you were almost finished with your meal and that you declined our offer to cook a new dish or to choose a new dish from our menu.

Be ensured that our Thai Chef would have been happy to discuss directly with you on that evening, about the authenticity of our Thai cuisine.

However, we hope to welcome you again for a better dining experience with authentic Thai dishes.

Sincerely yours,
The Management

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We are locals and were looking for a nice place to go for dinner one evening. After finding the Suan Bua on Tripadvisor we thought about checking it out. Went on a Tuesday, but also staff informed us that every Wednesday is a Thai Buffet night, with Traditional Thai Music and Dance. May next time on our return.
We had a great dinner, were again the staff makes the difference. Very welcoming and good organized. Great food to chose from and not only "eatable" for Foreigners... Level of Spicy or none can be ask for.
Very nice ambiance, we were sitting around the Pool, area belongs to the Villas of Centara Grand Hua Hin.
Without any doubt, we do recommend the place further.

“Fantastic Food”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We visited twice during our stay, don't ask me about the menu we didn't get past the massaman curry followed by mango and sticky rice. Great service I can't understand why more guests don't use it more.
