About the restaurant
An Asian paradise on the Nichupé Lagoon. Delight yourself with exquisite and authentic cuisines; Thai by our Chef Sawai Suwannachat and Indian by our chef Kishan Singh. Heighten your senses in a jungle hut or in a bungalow over the lagoon, accompanied by our signature cocktails. Feel the magical atmosphere guided by our house DJ Gabriel Guzman.
Dear client, for us your upcoming experience in our restaurant is very important, for that reason we inform you that our Thai & Elefanta Restaurants are in same location, however, for reasons of Plaza la Isla remodelations, we will have a deviation in the access to our entrance, this deviation is through Fashion Harbour, in the hall between the Rolex and Dolce & Gabana stores, you will arrive at Ryoshi's entrance and turning to the right you can find us, if you arrive by the parking lot that is by Palacio de Hierro, just follow the hall that is in front of Ryoshi restaurant and at the end we will be waiting for you.

My Aunt and I left our resort in order to enjoy a great meal and we were not disappointed! The setting was amazing with wonderful views. The service from the hostess all the way to the server was phenomenal. We felt truly cared for and it showed in the drinks and food. We will definitely return and also try the other fairmont restaurants!

Fantastic food. Local flavors with a modern twist. Only issue is the setting, after a rainy season it is difficult to leave unscathed from the swarm of mosquitoes.

We have been here in Cancun for three months and Alex met us on our first day here. We are staying in the canal homes and it’s very close to this place. Alex is a fantastic manager and is always very attentive. The food and drinks are very good. The view is amazing. We have been here like 12 times. We enjoy everything about this place. 5 stars for everything. We have another 1/2 of a month to month here and we will be back at leave three or four times.

We’ve been back to Casa Amada about seven times at this point. The food is incredible and the service is warm and professional. The salads are always wonderful and the steak is the best in the whole Riviera Maya :-)

Overall, we had a nice meal. The waiter, Alfredo, was great. They provided a very nice complimentary passion fruit topped cheese cake for our anniversary. The asparagus, beet and Brie appetizer was a mess however. It came on top of a bunch of crunchy chips which did nothing but obscure the flavors of the veggies.

Loved the live saxophone player and the Thai food was very good, just felt the flavors were a little too concentrated and shrimps weren’t like the ones used at beach walk earlier that were mild and better texture. The kids liked the Tom yum shrimp soup, my husband and I enjoyed red curry with shrimp and pad thai shrimp noodles. The shrimp egg rolls were ok. Best part of the meal was the service and the most amazing desserts. The tapioca and the mango creme brulee are must haves especially if you like tropical flavors, the brulee came with passion fruit sorbet!
