Setting

Beautiful Thai decor, local music and customary traditions coupled with elegance while getting lost in the fabulous views of Lamai Bay from inside a cosy and romantic terrace in the clouds.

Food

Authentic Thai flavours appeal to the palate at this well-appointed restaurant nestled in Banyan Tree resort. Let the journey begin with the recommended appetiser, khong wang ruam, a true taste of the local region comprising crispy rice noodle-wrapped prawns, grilled chicken satay, sea bass spring rolls and banana blossom prawn salad, with three dipping sauces. For mains, the signature dishes are clearly marked in the menu to assist selection. The bold flavours of gaeng phed ped yang, grilled duck breast with sweet basil and red curry, burst with every bite. Choose your favourite of four unique rices offered to accompany each meal. Finish off the experience with mango sticky rice, fresh local mango thinly sliced and dusted with black sesame seeds and powdered sugar, all atop a bed of luscious sticky rice.
