We were a little disappointed as we thought we were to have a unique dining experience but found the menu to be quite ordinary. We did enjoy what we had, just not excited by it.

The menu reads deliciously, however the finished plate leaves a lot to desire. The Korean Chicken Bao Buns have ONE piece of chicken in each bun....very disappointing. I had the duck which was cooked “OK” but feels lazy to serve without rice - noodles would feel so much more inspired.

I thought the service was very good and food was prompt but being a restaurant at such a prestigious hotel, I was expecting the food to be of higher quality, the rice looked and tasted like microwave rice, fries were under done, the main dishes were overly sweet I.e sirloin black bean steak and the seared duck breast. With all of the shutters closed the restaurant seemed dull and upon opening them I could see why because the building looked so old and tired. If I hadn't had a hotel voucher for a 1 night stay and a 3 course meal included I would be more than disappointed upon receiving the bill.

Service and ambience were excellent However three of the six meals were to heavily seasoned with dark soy sauce giving a very salty taste .

Fantastic food with great service as to be expected - music choices are a bit random and the layout of the restaurant feels a bit strange especially if tucked in one of the corner as we were. Definitely worth a visit for top quality Asian fare.

Great experience from Ryan and the team. We've dined here a few times previously as one of our favourite restaurants within the Resort. Ryan always remembers us, even where we've sat previously! and has always made it enjoyable!

I really enjoyed our night in the Pad from the start it was great! Our waiter Callum was lovely and really friendly and gave a great recommendation for the main😊. The service was brilliant and most of all the food didn’t disappoint and I will definitely be returning!

Dined off the mid-week menu. Choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts. I ordered the VEGETARIAN spring rolls (the only veggie option and only spring roll stated) and ended up being served CHICKEN spring rolls. Imagine biting into something and getting a mouth full of meat when you don’t eat meat!!!!! Staff apologised but the nature of the issue wasn’t acknowledged. It really was not enjoyable. Veggie noodle main was pretty unimaginative and boring. Asian flavours should be an explosion in your mouth. Partner enjoyed the mussels. Would say there was too much gelatine in the panacotta. Has gone downhill since the rebrand from Cen.

Hair in food. Restaurant manager was rude. Snatched a glass out of my 8 year old sons hand for no apparent reason. Only had a starter served in one and a half hours. Food is overpriced for a deep fried piece of chicken and some boiled rice. Save your hard earned money. Restaurant was so much better when it was Cen.

The service in the restaurant was excellent and the food was really very good. I would recommend Pad on this basis. However, I do not think you should be selling £13.00 cocktails based on the quality of them. The ice, glassware, presentation, taste doesn’t justify the cost. It appears as though you don’t have the infrastructure for operating a high end bar and so, think the price point is wrong here.
