We stayed at the fantastic X2 resort for 5 nights and Oxygen restaurant is part of the resort, but I really do think it deserves to have a review on its own.
Oxygen is such a beautiful restaurant, all walls and ceiling are glass, and nestles in the middle of beautiful old tamarind trees. As you walk in, to the left is a gorgeous full bar carved out of marble, few more steps in are meticulously set tables which were placed at a perfect distance from each other. One of the glass wall completely opens up to the outside with a few more tables and the well kept garden and view of the Ping river. We normally would venture of and explore the city where we visit and look for good restaurants to enjoy local cuisines, but Oxygen was so great that we only went out twice and the rest of the time we ate at Oxygen. I mean we were there for the complimentary breakfast, lunch and dinner. For one of the dinner we decided on the tasting menu and it was definitely one of the highlight of our trip. Michelin star chef Nicholas doesn't disappoint. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted phenomenon. 5 courses and every single course was delectable. We took a few food pics but probably won't do it justice. A great wine list to accompany a wonderful meal is hard to find in Thailand but Oxygen has it. Great selections for both red and white wines. We were introduced to Villa Sparina Gavi thanks to the wonderful restaurant manager. The whole wait staff is so friendly and their timing is just perfect. Never a moment that we felt rushed to overbearing. Our flight was at 1 pm and we had to squeeze in our last lunch here at 11 and it was totally worth rushing to the airport after.

Booked dinner for my husbands birthday and arranged with chef Alex to have a set menu with some additions and changes which was done with pleasure.
Every course was stylish and tasty and the wine pairings good.
The service was attentive but not pressured and we had a great evening.
We stayed the night in the hotel and my husband was presented with a lovely birthday cake at breakfast .

The menu reads very well presentations are uniformly outstanding, and the Degustation set menu is good value for 5 courses. However, some adjustments to reach their fine dining aspirations are needed. Any dish with an expensive ingredient (i.e. crabmeat, caviar, etc.) provides only a tiny morsel of the top-billed item, which just feels cheap. Almost every dish has some sour element (which we liked), but is invariably offset by far too much sugar. Plates and wine glasses were frequently pulled by the (newish) staff without us being asked if we were done (and often we weren't). The setting is lovely, and the furnishings are well done. If they make some adjustments this place could really be excellent.

Dear rtwhow,
Thank you for visiting the Oxygen dining room. We are happy to read that your enjoyed the food presentation, menu and that you felt the menu was good value for money. Thank you for those comments.
We understand a Michelin 5 course degustation menu to be a chance to try many dishes created and designed which much thought and care in one seating, we feel this would not be possible if all the potions were a la carte proportion. Our apologies if the portion size did not meet your expectation.
On the service aspect, we are committed to have high standards and as such will look into more training, thank you for your feedback.
Kind regards, Ewan and the X2@CMR family.

I went for the set vegetarian dinner event by visiting Chef Nicolas Isnard. Every taste was magnificent. It was a truly wonderful meal. On top of that it was a beautiful venue on the river. Staff were all wonderful - attentive, warm, friendly and very well trained. I am looking forward to going back already.

Attended a dinner in this very lovely restaurant under stunning trees and facing the river. Atmosphere was a bit chilly for a January month but the chefs in action warmed up our palates.
Surprising display of very creative dishes. Great to see and amazing to taste !
The set menu on the night was seafood and the choice of the ingredients was fantastic. I hear they are sourced mainly locally which is fantastic...
Oxygen delivers the great Michelin-starred level. I highly recommend for a charming moment with your loved ones or if you want to impress your friends !
