There is no doubt that the food quality and variety will be hard to beat. Like others, we experienced the Prawn Roof specialty. It, like all the food, was stunning. We were glad to be able to enjoy our own special bottles of wine and...More

Six friends, all over 60, decided on a Thai-type meal and we chose Erawans. To our delight the restaurant charges 25 percent less on a Monday or Tuesday, even on drinks. I shared crispy duck with pancakes - essentially Peking Duck - with a friend...More
