Homie –

Döner
of Life!

Thank you Bo and Lasse of I’m a KOMBO, and their helpers Ditte and Mie, for bringing your re-imagined Döner Shop to the hotel. With sugar salted chicken, lobster salad, grilled asparagus and pickled onions, it was unlike any Döner we’ve had before! And who doesn’t love toasting their dessert on a stick afterwards!?

Michelberger’s
Pacific Rim Restaurant

Starting tomorrow (4th May) and for the next 6 weeks only we’re turning our restaurant upside down. Firstly we’re refurbishing our kitchen to bring it up to the level of the cooking. Secondly, whilst doing so, we decided to have some fun along the way: We’ll stay open for dinner with our pop-up Bangkok street-style courtyard kitchen, Pacific Rim. Alan and his team will throw volcanic fire rocks onto the menu ()
