Review: Thai Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain

Bahrain Confidential reviews The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain’s Thai Lounge.

Situated at The Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain, Thai Lounge fuses a fantastic restaurant experience within a cosy lounge-like setting. Just recently, we had the chance to embark in a culinary adventure at the restaurant.

Spacious, aesthetic and charming, Thai Lounge was right in between the hotel’s pool and beach. To get to the lounge, we had a lovely walk through the hotel grounds – the journey itself adds to the ambience and makes for a great idea for a romantic date. Since the weather is perfect for al fresco dining, we opted for the cosy outdoor seating.

Thai Lounge is known for its eclectic selection of Pan-Asian and Thai dishes along with refreshing concoctions and creative infusions that are designed and crafted by their ‘liquid chefs’. Of course, we had to try what makes the lounge special! During our visit, the chef briefed us about their specialty dishes (which was a nice touch) and soon after, we indulged in each one of them.

At the lounge, traditional dishes like curries, satay along with Japanese sushi and tempura were presented in a modern way; making each one Instagram-worthy! On top of that, the wonderfully-plated dishes emanated all kinds of lovely aromas, enticing us more to dig in.

Our favourites included the Tom Yum, an intoxicating concoction of seafood and herbs; the Thai Green Curry in a rich coconut sauce; and the Hot Dragon Prawn tempura sushi roll. We’d love to comment on the desserts but we were too full at the end of the evening. So that’s for another review next time!

The lounge featured live DJ entertainment throughout the night, giving everyone the opportunity to unwind while listening to chill-out tunes in a casual ambience. Definitely the perfect place to relish many evenings!

Thai Lounge offers a strong sense of quality and indulgence. The service was spectacular and the lounge satisfies the desires of any gourmand. With its scenic views and delicious offerings, the lounge is perfect for a relaxed chilled evening with friends and loved ones. For all these reasons and more, the Thai Lounge is high on our list for the island’s evening destinations!
