About Thai - Cancun

A nice place hidden among the green foliage of a botanical garden.Perfect place for a magic evening in a open and relaxed ambiance, that connect us with the nature. Counting with an overlooking to a dolphinarium and the magnificant Nichupte lagoon, that delights us with beautiful sunsets.

The restaurant has palm shelters or palapas, with an ambiente of tables, living rooms or lounges. There the exquisite thai food prepared by our Bangkok born, Chef Supoj Thamtino, is enjoyed.

Eating style is share differrent dishes, served at the same time; but if is in the art of mixing, when the chemestry of exquisite flavors arises.

Absolutely love this restaurant! Amazing views of the lagoon but watch out for the massive crocs!

Todo había esto perfecto pues el lugar es muy bello y la comida es deliciosa, pero no respetaron la reservación que realicé con 4 días de anticipación cerca del lago, según la recepcionista por que tenían más reservas, sin embargo no todas las mesas se ocuparon en el tiempo que estuvimos allí.

Además notamos desagradablemente un trato preferencial a extranjeros pues a ellos se les asignaban dichas mesas.

Al final salí un poco desanimada pues por ello hice una reservación con tiempo.

Second visit here and it didn't disappoint. Lovely tasty Thai food. Pick your level of spice. Espresso martini was one of the best I've ever had (and I've had a lot) The huts over looking the lagoon were a perfect setting for my boyfriends birthday.

Sin duda seguirá siendo uno de nuestros restaurantes favoritos por que la comida es deliciosa y el concepto del restaurante es único, pero tuve una mala experiencia a mi llegada. La primera bienvenida que me dio la Hostes fue, cuanto te vas a tardar cenando, porque tenemos a alguien que llega a las 10pm. Ya me explicaron su proceso , pero hay otras maneras de hacerle saber eso al cliente, lo solucionas por detrás y no haces pasar un mal rato a tus clientes. Si tienen limite por ser mesa en la laguna deberían de ponerlo en OPENTABLE, porque eso fue la justificación que me dio la hostes que por ser una reserva hecha por plataforma. Mi consejo es pongan en observaciones o algún apartado que diga para mesa en la laguna es de dos horas y las reservas son a las 6pm 8pm y 10pm que fue lo que me dijeron. Mi reservación fue a las 8:30pm
La comida y el servicio de Amos nuestro mesero hizo que eso pasara, pero deberían tener mas tacto y saber resolver esas incidencias con el siguiente comensal.
Gracias

We have been to the Thai Lounge in Cancun many times over the years, and it never disappoints. The food, ambience, beauty, atmosphere, and service are always excellent, and its unique outdoor, over-the-water location with individualized sectional seating is incredible! The bar is also unique if not one of a kind! One of our favorites in the world!

Loved this new find! We were there in January and were sat on the lagoon, which would normally be incredible but it was just a little too cold! Besides that, it was great! (Just ask to sit more towards the front)

Te presionan para ordenar y comer rápido. Cuando estás en medio de los platillos principales te preguntan por el postre. Te incluyen la propina a fuerza. Por un lugar que cuesta aproximadamente 2,000MXN (100 USD) por persona, esperaba algo mejor.

Our dinner started frustratingly when the hostess said she gave away our table since we were a bit over 10 minutes late trying. Maybe she just had an attitude issue as we were quickly seated to a fabulous table sitting right over the lagoon. Things got a bit better with some tasty drinks and then an interesting selection of apps. The pad Thai with shrimp wasn’t loved by my wife but others like it, yet we wish the dish was a bit larger. The lamb chops were excellent and we liked the chicken dishes. Overall, a nice evening but the portions were all a bit small. Yet, they did bring around plenty of rice to make sure we left full. Dessert wasn’t great so we’d probably skip if we went again.

El lugar es hermoso , la comida con buen sabor y muy bien presentada , tiempo de espera Por los alimentos un poco larga .
Hice mi reservación con mucho tiempo de anticipación ya que
Fui por el cumpleaños de mi pareja esperaba algo más simbólico para que ella se la pasara súper pero me fui un poco decepcionado ya que él servicio fue pobre y un poco apático no sé si fue por ser locales o por qué me toco mala suerte ese día
El browni de cumpleaños muy malo por cierto

Bueno volver q "Thai" inclusive con su nuevo menu... sin embargo, el hecho q el propio Staff te avise q los platillos ahora son "mucho más pequeños" ciertamente descorazona... pese a menores porciones, y un servicio cálido, pero lento... la calidad sigue igual y la atmósfera es inigualable! El precio, obvio es de Cancún, así es q muy normal. Disfruten!

Way too expensive for very little food! Many of us got pad Thai and the serving size was teeny! The French martinis we ordered seemed to have very little vodka in them!

We used to love this place - we've been coming since 2007. We probably will not return.

The setting is beautiful but there were a few problems with the service. No drinks menu was available so we had no idea of the price of the drinks we were ordering. We ordered plain noodles as a side dish but were then charged for them as an additional main meal at a cost of around £10 per small portion. This we were told was because the till does not have an option to charge anything else. I was also given the wrong dish of sweet and sour fish instead of chicken which ruined the correct meal as I couldn't get rid of the taste however they did remove this from the bill. This was a return visit as the meal we had on our last visit was so nice but we were very disappointed. The food was very tasty but the problems outweighed this.
