WHY GO? Diners looking for an outdoor riverside setting
in a restaurant with great scenery should be satisfied
with Buritara. The view from the outdoor terrace
overlooking the river can be mesmerising. Live bands
are always available for diners’ entertainment.
WHAT TO ORDER?
Deep-fried spinach and cheese
spring roll makes a surprisingly good starter, the
accompanying mayonnaise-wasabi sauce offering
enough bite to cut through the gooey filling. Deep-fried
sea bass topped with black pepper and garlic is as
authentically Thai as can be, simply delicious. Mediumsized
river prawn is perfectly grilled, its taste heightened
by garlic and spicy seafood sauce. Spicy herb smoked
salmon is also very enjoyable.
Buritara’s wine selection is decent but not especially extensive, with a focus
on the usual Californian suspects.
