This is an amazing restaurant fusion of Thai and Mediterranean; however their Thai food is much better than Mediterranean. Wide range of curries/rice/noodles for both veg and non-veg eaters. Beautiful dessert options.

The service was lovely and the food delicious! It is a bit expensive and you can find cheaper alternatives but if price is not the issue, then this a lovely place for dinner or lunch.

Apadana Restaurant serves both Mediterrean & Thai cuisine and is now under new management. This was our first visit so I can't compare it against previous reviews by others. We went in the lead up to Christmas when the restaurant was fairly busy but the staff dealt with that very well with quick service. The layout of the restaurant is... More

I had a lovely experience at Apadana a few years ago so I took a group of friends last weekend. Apadana is very central as its in the middle of Dominion Road; has parking at the back and also on the side streets adjoining and has a lovely atmosphere with ample seating and warm and inviting heating. The service was... More

This is the third time I have visited this restaurant and think it has had enough chances really. The first time was O.K, the second time they had not seated the group as requested, the food was extremely slow coming from the kitchen and this last time was not good. The food is quite tasty apart from the artichoke hearts... More

We are regular customers, having eaten at Apadana over couple of years now. To tell you the truth, my visit on 27/12/11 was quite surprising as there had been a change of ownership. The menu had only one page of previous menu and was disappointing as we loved the foood there. However The food was lovely n enjoyed by all.... More

Our second visit was quieter than our first, so the general feel was peaceful and relaxing. We had an interior table, received good service and good food. We missed the starter, having already discovered the size of the mains, but made up foir that with a shared medium platter. The Ghormei Sabzi is very good, my wife enjoyed her lamb... More
