Thara Thong serves authentic Bangkok fare in a grand traditional setting. Dine at charming floor seating and low tables beneath an ornate hand-carved teakwood pavilion with large, handsomely dressed windows. The dining room and outdoor terrace overlook serene views of the legendary Chao Phraya River, while the gentle sound of live Thai classical music adds to the unique atmosphere. Located on First Floor, Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers

Here, sublime regional favorites are served, beginning with rich and fragrant Tom Yum Kung—hot and sour soup with shelled prawns—and Yum Som-O—Thai pomelo chicken salad. Choose from a range of delicious vegetarian, meat, and seafood dishes. Entrées are prepared with care and served with flare befitting the Royal Court.

Thai classical music and dance performances are presented everyday from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Smoking is allowed on the outdoor terrace only.

Excellent place for intro to Thai food and dance if you only have a few hours in Bangkok. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and ambiance is serene and tranquil, especially with the live music. The service was top notch. My husband and I had a wonderful time -- khob khun ka!

Location fantastic, although the rubbish music on the cruise boats can ruin the ambience every 15 minutes or so. The river traffic is pretty busy, even at night. The food was incredible - I stayed at the hotel in 2016 and had the beef paneng which is exactly what I went back for and it didn’t disappoint. The service was good, although the staff were a little too attentive, visiting the table every few minutes to fill up drinks unnecessarily - one waitress actually topped up my boyfriends beer and the glass overflowed all over the table, he’d barely taken a sip since it arrived. Despite that, it was a near perfect evening. The bill was a tad on the expensive side but we expected it from a hotel restaurant. Would definitely recommend!

Great birthday dinner with friends while in Bangkok. Our hostess was awesome and Ms. Mook took great care of us. I would recommend making this part of your Bangkok schedule.

Food was tastey but over priced . Service was poor- had to wait ages to be seated and given menus and for the table to be laid . Traditional setting , music and dancing was pleasant .

Had such high expectations for this place, but was so disappointed.
Had spring rolls for starters, they tasted nothing but the frying oil.
For main I had thick red curry with chicken. There was no vegetables in the dish even though I requested it. What was worse is that the entire dish tasted like fish. Not like the chef had a little to much fish sauce, no I suspect the pan wasn't washed during the prepartion og different dishes. The chicken tasted like fish and was not what I opted for.

Lastly we got mosquito bites all over our legs, and we sat inside the restaurant.

Make your reservation elsewhere.

料理はどれも大変美味しく、トムヤムクンは今まで食べた中でベストでした。
また、30分ごとに5分程度の異なる伝統的な踊りが披露され、合間ごとに丁度いい感じに鑑賞しながら食事ができました。
欧米人のグループが何組かいたので、この日はやや騒がしかったですが、おそらく平常時は適度に静かな雰囲気なのかと思います。

I took my partner here for a date and it was an absolutely wonderful experience with great food and the perfect ambiance for a romantic date. The river was great to just watch in silence after the food too.

Highly recommended for an evening with friends visiting from the US to experience exquisite Thai cuisine in an upscale environment on the river. Beautiful presentation, great service and a wonderful evening.

Only for tourist stuck in the hotel. The food is bland and over priced, Nice decor, but the food is the reason to come, not the decor

The restaurant had great ambiance. We had a fabulous service. The traditional dance was interesting. We made one mistake - we went at 6 PM - apparently people eat dinner a lot later in Bangkok.

- Very nice atmosphere, location.
- Attentive service.
- Quality of the cooking not consistent : some dishes will be just amazing, and some others simply OK; this is even more visible especially if they are served after the great dishes.
- Kitchen took too much time to prepare food. The music & ambiance partially cover this gap

On the river front with the usual action on the river. Good food at an appropriate price with good service. An added bonus is that there are a few Thai "mini-shows" every 20-30 minutes.

It was a disappointing dinner. Food is very soso. Seafood was not fresh at all. And food was not served hot enough. Doesn't worth the money at all. Environment is great though.

At first glance, the place looks nice.
Unfortunately, the guests don't match the ambiance and there is nobody asking them to put on some proper clothing.
The waiters really took their time and the music was very loud and after a while really annoying.

Except for the seafood salad and the salmon tartar, the food was mediocre or below average.
The "spicy" food was not really spicy, the rest was plain boring.

In total, for that price, the experience was very poor.
