Thai Jasmine

Reviewed By TheCyclist42 - Bournemouth, United Kingdom

There are some good things about this restaurant. It has a nice ambiance, the ingredients are of very high quality & it's reasonably priced but we felt let down. Firstly the service was excreably slow. I think they mixed the orders up as by chance we ordered exactly the same set menu as a table nearby who ordered after us & then received their food first - they ordered 5 minutes after us & left the restaurant 45 minutes before us. this is unprofessional. We were also disappointed by the food which to my taste had been made far less authentic with lots of sugar, salt & [apparently] MSG. It was well cooked, but that did not make up for the degradation of the recipes.

We were there for a Christmas diner, the atmosphere was perfect, the waiters really nice. The food...nothing to say it was original, excellent. Something went wrong in the reservation so didnt get the information that i was not eating meat. They have done everything and I got my special meal quite quick.
I recommend without any hesitation!

It says open and it is closed. We came from a long distance because it says open and we hit the face on the door. Therefore my opinion is not staff nor food, only on service.

Reviewed By Parker J - Plymouth, United Kingdom

I have just dined at this restaurant. The food was top quality, imaginative and well presented. Portion size was sufficient and it was not over priced. I had the tasting appetiser of five different starters including carpaccio with pesto and pine nuts, shredded pheasant on brioche and celeriac soup. Main course was a saffron risotto with mixed white fish and shellfish. Wine selection was good.

11 of us descended upon Groningen for a MotoGP weekend. We wanted something traditionally Dutch. This place delivered and some!!!
Melvin and the other staff gave great service and the food was fantastic. Every one of our party said they'd thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not often you can say that! When I go back to Groningen I will definitely return to this restaurant.

Reviewed By Charlotte H - Groningen, The Netherlands

I have been here couple times, great service,friendly staff, nice ambience and great decor! However, the dishes could be improved as they were not impressive enough in my opinion. They tasted good, but just something was missing. Maybe because of the fancy ambience, my expectation for the food was too high?
Anyway, it is a good restaurant in general.

The a la carte restaurant of the Prinsenhof hotel offered a set 3 course menu at a fixed price of € 37,50. However, with wine, water and coffee we ended up with overall costs of € 62 per head. The dishes were attractively presented and explained by the serving staff. We received a lot of personal attention from the staff. We were not all that much impressed with the starter (mackerel). An alternative was found for my allergy for grape fruit.

We enjoyed our diner at the Kleine Heerlijkheid; we choose the surprise menu. Starter was surprising and good; main course was bit disappointing (heavy and dry), but this was well compensaties boy na excellent cheese platter (at request). Service was good and personal.
