Kwan Thai has good food but is overpriced for what they actually give you (e.g. food is good but not extraordinary). I went earlier this year and the service wasn't that great either. The waitresses were rather grouchy towards us and seemed like they couldn't be bothered, although they were dressed nicely. We sat on the ground floor by the window but didn't get much of a view because the restaurant was slightly sunken so you see more of passerbys than the water.
If you want a good view and exquisite food, try Ozu
at County Hall
. It's pricey but the food is much more worth that money than Kwan Thai. Mind you Ozu
is Japanese, not Thai. The view is amazing though... try to book a table by the window if you could. I must repeat, exquisite food! And romantic setting too.
If you are looking for Thai, I would recommend Lye Torng. It's not a fancy place (pubbish setting with good table service) but their food is amazing. Maybe not for the special birthday meal but worth a try if you're ever nearby!
