Giorgio's Italian Restaurant - Royal Orchid Sheraton on BumRes.com
The Giorgio’s had been a fine restaurant in my wish list for the longest time. I just never had the opportunity to go and there was always something holding me back, such as the high prices (possibly the main factor). I tried to find a review of the Giorgio but I never found any details of the menu pricing. Even the website of the hotel didn’t have any info of the restaurant at all. Its location at the Charoenkrung 30 was also so far from my house. Finally, I intentionally planned to go to the Giorgio’s @ Royal Orchid Sheraton. This Italian restaurant is much larger than the Rossini @ Sheraton Grande that I had just visited. Georgio’s atmosphere is nicer and it has an outdoor seating area for enjoying the riverside view with the nice chill breeze of the late evening (there were more people sitting outside than inside). Decorated with classy European style, more beautiful than all of European restaurants I had gone to recently (perhaps because the place has the river view). One kind server was assigned to take care of my table. She was really nice and caring, so I definitely give ten points for service.
The first one on the table was the Caprese Salad, traditional style. This menu at the Giorgio is one of the best I had ever had; refreshingly chilled tomatoes, the cheese, and the dressing in one bite is unbelievably tasty. Many places wouldn’t have the tomatoes this cold and not as fresh as this one (there was a knife for cutting up the tomato but I didn’t need it since I took the whole thing in one bite, lol…). The second dish was the Risotto with Prawn and N’Duja Spicy Salami (430 Baht), which was the signature dish. Risotto was different; almost like a rice soup. To my surprise, I liked it – juicy and delicious.
