Thai Market: Step into the extraordinary Thai Market and you’ll easily feel as if you’ve been transported to the streets of Bangkok. Have a seat in the golden “Thai Temple,” where you’ll be surrounded by actual imagery taken on the streets of Thailand and upside-down umbrellas that adorn the tin ceiling. The market serves up an eclectic mix of foods, but one of the best is the Tom Yum Goong soup (a mix of lemongrass, tamarind tendril, shrimp, and mushroom).

What makes a Thai restaurant stand out? They’re scattered all over the city so no doubt everyone has their favorite and yet, if you haven’t been to Room Service then you need to experience what makes this place a real stand out.
Let’s start with the Room Service Pad Thai. The glass vermicelli with generous servings of mixed seafood and shrimp, are tossed with brown tofu, mango, bean sprouts, crushed peanuts, wrapped up in an egg white crepe. The delicate parcel is presented with an oriental flower that brings to mind the welcome surprise of a quality chocolate covered mint on the pillow of your hotel room.
