Ficus Restaurant - Khao Lak

Paak Weep Beach Restaurants & Dining

If anyone could explain just exactly what it is that makes a successful restaurant they’d be able to retire a very rich person after writing a book about the magical ingredients.

Some go for atmosphere, but if you want atmosphere without great food you may as well stay at home, right? No, it’s definitely a combination of atmosphere, décor, fine dining and location. Ficus, in The Sarojin, has all of these ingredients and more.

Décor

Open-sided with tall sliding doors and elegant vases interspersed throughout, Ficus is a single room with terrace tables outside. Inside, it’s well lit and outside decidedly intimate.

There are white columns with Chinese motifs on them as well as a clever ceiling of wood and stucco as well as Chinese vases. Ficus does not strive to look beautiful, it simply is and that goes a long way towards setting diners at ease from the word go. 

Atmosphere

The chirrup of frogs in the nearby pond and the steady hum of cicadas provides Mother Nature’s soundtrack along with carefully selected mood music. Even on a rainy night this is a great place to dine.

Even though this restaurant looks quite formal it’s also a place to enjoy your meal in a party atmosphere as we did. Don’t worry, Ficus is multi-faceted and is what you make it. A jolly good asset to an eatery.

Wine

With some 450 labels to choose from there’ll be that special wine for you here. We sipped a Cabernet Merlot Cape Mentelle Red and excellent it was.

A word should be said about Ficus’s cocktails: as simplistic as it may seem, restaurant critics often gauge the effectiveness of the drinks list by ordering a dry Martini beforehand. You would be surprised at how many restaurants don’t know how to mix a good one – Ficus passed the test with flying colours.

There’s an all-day selection by the bottle or by the glass and all the usual suspects are here with representatives from every continent. 

Food

Adaptation and flexibility are the bywords in Ficus’s cuisine. There is a strong Thai presence with dishes from all over the country, all excellently executed and presented. In fact you may be busier with your camera than you would expect.

An Italian mixed seafood plate makes a welcome appearance and acquits itself well, as does a small rocket salad I order to keep my greenery intake up to par but the best dish of the evening by far is herbed lasagna with lobster in tomato basil sauce.

I swear the next time I’m at The Sarojin I shall order this excellent and flavour-filled dish. There are extensive dessert dishes and why not round off the evening with a liqueur? 

Service

For such an impressive-looking restaurant the service at Ficus is playful and light hearted.

There’s no pretentiousness or putting on false airs; just the real Thai friendliness but delivering the goods at the same time. Attentive and professional, you’ll make friends here with the genuine and genial Thai staff.
