We have been staying at St Regis for 4 Nights with one more to go. Came over from UK for a few days of heat - how they must be laughing back home. Our one and only saving grace has been Sontaya - food and staff have been superb. Drink is extortionate ie £60 for an average bottle of Sauv... More

A total treat. Beautiful place, amazing staff and one of the best Thai meals we have ever had. During a week where we literally did not see the sun, this was a real highlight. The red duck curry was the best I have tasted (and I've tasted a few!!). A must for anyone staying at the St Regis or from... More

We arrived last Saturday morning and after a long sleep wanted to find somewhere to have a late lunch snack so popped into this Asian restaurant only to find they were only serving a Saturday set brunch menu. They asked how many vegetarians we had in our party (my daughter) and bought a kids version of the menu for my... More

I cannot express enough how beautiful this restaurant is. Stunning. Went here with my significant other for a dinner date and we were seated outdoors surround by water everywhere-- the ambiance was just perfect and romantic. They have a great list of cocktails which is recommendable as they have Asian twist in them. The food was excellent-- good taste, appropriate... More

Spectacular setting for kind of average yet expensive Thai. The restaurant is beautiful, although lacking in Thai references common among high-end Thai places globally. My appetizer of spicy beef in lettuce wraps was good, but a bit on the salty side. The subsequent order of pad thai was completely tasteless, hardly any flavor at all. Kind of too bad for... More
