A review of Giorgio’s, a premium Italian restaurant located along the Chao Phraya River, at the Royal Orchid Sheraton. Normally, they serve a-la-carte dishes but is now currently offering a buffet for big eaters, as well as affordable set meals.
For walk-ins, you can still use this review as a guide, because whether you make advance bookings for a buffet or not, you will be treated to the same food quality.
Review on YouTube (Thai)
• Use excellent ingredients, and delicious full-flavored food.
• Attractive restaurant with a good ambiance, located along the Chao Phraya River.
• Ample hotel parking space.
• Food prices are quite high.
• Buffet price does not include beverages (but set meals do).
• The salad (that we tasted) was rather sweet.
• Medium-quality desserts.
• The buffet is suitable for really big eaters.
Giorgio’s at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel is an Italian restaurant with premium pricing.
However, the price is consistent with the use of premium-grade ingredients such as tiger prawns and snow fish (Gindara). Soups and sauces are richly flavored. The ambiance along the Chao Phraya River also adds a unique dining experience.
Interested diners can book a buffet and view the restaurant’s menu at Hungry Hub. Cancellations can also be made at any time. Click here.
The restaurant is located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, in which diners have a spectacular view of IconSiam. The evening ambiance is better than during the day.

Listed below are some of the items we tasted on the day of our review.
Grilled Lamb Cutlets, Fresh Rosemary, Mustard, Garlic Olive Oil, and Lamb Jus
The meat was very soft, juicy, and came with a slight lamb aroma. The accompanying pepper sauce was mildly sweet and salty. Very good, and reasonably priced.
Prime Angus Beef Tenderloin, Grilled Prawns, Surf and Turf
Nice aroma from the pepper. The accompanying mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables were absolutely delicious. The grilled prawns were of medium freshness.
It should be eaten while hot when the meat is still tender and juicy.
Grilled Jumbo Prawns With Garlic, Lemon, Olive Oil, and Parsley on Spinach Butter and Potatoes
Big chewy tiger prawns accompanied with fragrant prawn fat, topped with a mildly sweet-salted pepper sauce. No additional seasoning is needed and you can order as much as you like.
Grilled Snow Fish Fillet With Green Asparagus and Garlic Sauce, Capper Hollandaise Sauce
Mild salty taste and grilled aroma. Thick pieces of smooth and fine texture fish fillet. Ultimate creaminess, served with hollandaise sauce.
The flavoring was additionally aided by the greasiness of the egg yolk, ending with a lemony scent. Absolutely satisfying creaminess.
Classic Seafood Bisque
Consisted of shrimps, scallops, mussels, squid, and fragrant brandy mixed with the scent of the sea, slightly salty and sweet in taste. Goes well with the bread.
The soup was absolutely flavorful and was packed full of fresh seafood ingredients.
The Parma ham was very aromatic, and its saltiness was further enhanced by both the Parmesan and Burrata cheese, and was well-contrasted by the bitter rocket vegetable. The dough was chewy and fun to enjoy. Highly recommended.
Crab Cakes on Saffron Scented Herb Sauce
Generous servings of big crab meat, but was not crispy for long. Not suitable for diners who don’t like sweet peppers as the smell and taste of the peppers overwhelmed the crab meat.
The crab cakes were to be dipped in saffron-scented herb sauce, which yielded a combination of flavors that consisted of a slight saltiness, greasiness, sour and sweet.
Oven-Baked Beef Lasagna
Very aromatic, heavy on the cheese, crisp salty oily taste, with a slight sourness from the tomato. The lasagna flour was soft and smooth.
Deep-fried Crispy Calamari
Crispy, firm, bouncy squid, lightly salted and scented with spices.
The dish was served with sour tartar sauce and complimented with fried onions rings that looked exactly the same and was equally delicious. There was a slight oily fragrance that may not be liked by diners who don’t like fried food.
But I’ll order it again on my next visit.^^
Homemade Burrata, Prosciutto, Rocket Salad and Cherry Tomatoes
Looks very ordinary, but it was an appetizer that we really liked and would have to try it wherever we go.
The bread here is a combination of slightly sweet and salty, and is also aromatic with the onion, basil, garlic, pepper, and olive oil.
The accompanying French bread was crispy on the outside while being soft and chewy on the inside. Simply delicious. The bread was quite large in size, even for a buffet.
Roasted Beetroot with Mixed Green, Walnut and Fresh Stracciatella Cheese
Soft and crunchy roasted beetroot topped with sweet and sour salad dressing, and contrasted well with the bitterness of the savory rocket. The dish was also well-complimented by crispy pine nuts.
Personally, I felt that it was a bit too sweet.
Classic Tiramisu With Mascarpone Cream Cheese and Coffee-Flavored Lady Finger
Nice aroma of the coffee, with just the right fragrance level of the liquor without being too pungent. There were also crunchy sweet chocolate flakes to chew on, with a fragrant light cream. The dish was served with sour fruits that helped reduce the greasiness.
Not as juicy as expected, but served in a generous portion, making us very full.
Panna Cotta With Raspberry Coulis
Smooth texture with a mild vanilla aroma. Not overly sweet, goes well with the intense raspberry sauce, and is well-complimented by the light whipped cream.
Chocolate Lava Cake, Caramel Ice Cream
Served with rich caramel-flavor ice cream. Sweet and absolutely tasty. The dish was also sprinkled with crispy salty crumbles and eaten together with a rich chocolate cake.
The only thing that I can mention is; can I have another serving, please?
