Really Good Americanized Thai Food! – Great food, great atmosphere!

The Soft Shell Curry Crab is a must try!! So delicious..

Merlion is a little pricey, but well worth it. This is a great place for an intimate celebration.

Out of the way Gem in Kemah – This is a great Thai restaurant in Kemah Texas.

The food is fresh, authentic and delicious.

They came back from Hurrican Ike and they continued to deliver the best Thai food. Plus the staff is attentive and personal. Exceptional experience.

CLOSED -- Victim of Hurricane Ike – Merlion's is closed, at least for the time being. The restaurant tragically fell victim to Hurricane Ike, and was completely demolished by the storm. We drove by the location two days after the storm, and were shocked to find only scraps of timbers laying on the lot of the former restaurant.

Great place, but ask the price of the wine! – We have been regular guests of Merlion for almost 2 years. I took some friends tonight for a great dinner.

One poor server was waiting on 11 tables at one time,

We were offered a tasting of several wines and chose a bottle.

We ordered an appetizer, an inexpensive main course and a dessert shared by 3 people.

I was presented a bill for $ 326.00! This included 2 bottles of wine @ $95 a bottle! I felt like we were taken advantage of. They have no wine list and no prices.

We intend to go back though...the food is great!

Lucky to find Merlion - extremely lucky it's in the Clear Lake area! – Wow, just stumbled upon Merlion, have eaten there twice and LOVE it! So rare to find an excellent restaurant in the Clear Lake/Bay Area. It's not a chain (thank goodness!), it's got a wonderful eclectic atmosphere (in a bungalow across from the water and not in the Kemah boardwalk noise-filled district), superior Thai food cooked to order, wine that can be tasted before buying, very friendly and knowledgable waitstaff, parking lot and street parking, a jazz duo the recent Saturday evening I was there. I can't say enough positive things about this restaurant - I will be wearing it out for years to come! If you have an issue, idea, complaint, request - the staff is ready to accommodate you. First class service and food - what more do you need to hear?! Do make a reservation if you want to make sure you'll get a table...

Everything a wonderful dining experience should be – In short: This is a delightful and exceptional restaurant experience. The food can be described as Thai "with a twist" and it is outstanding. The best comparision I could provide is a "fusion" of a highly skilled Thai chef with "formal" French training. Thai food is about balance - not just heat - and this chef masters the technique. The wait staff is attentive without hovering over the tables. The wine list is short - but quite unique and fairly priced. Ambiance is present in this small house setting - which has a "romance" all its own. The 'beat' of the meal is relaxed and enjoyable. We had an outstanding evening!! First rate.

Thai food & ambiance unbeatable. A dining experience – My husband & I were recommended to Merlion. We had the most wonderful evening in this charming 1920's cottage by the Merlion Lagoon. We went to our first wine tasting dinner ...Incredible, the lamb was succulent as was the Kobe beef. The waiters were gracious, fun and most of all extremely knowledgeable. The wine list is superb and they have chosen wines from all over the world. We had lived in Thailand for many years and my husband & I both agree that Chef Andrews food is the best Thai food in the world. Thankyou everyone who made our night magical. Hats off to Merlion

Perfect! – Thoroughly enjoyed the dinning experience! Service was great and the food is even better. Sampled several wine offerings, all very good. Ambience is unique and quaint. Best Thai food I've had outside of Thailand. I now have a new favorite.

the most relaxing dining experience I have ever had – I have never posted an opinion/review on a restaurant but after dining here I couldn't wait to get home and tell all. This place was recommended to my wife and I and we weren't sure what to expect, what to order, what to wear. I read some reviews on Merlion and they were all positive and took some of the info from them to help us order wine and such. NO NEED. We were able to sample various French wines , choose one of our liking and all that was left was decide on what to eat. Another thing we took the easy road on and ordered what was recomended by our friend. We had the chef special and everything was great. Believe me we had no idea what we were doing there and the staff was so helpful in making our dining experience the most relaxing and authentic one possible. We felt very welcomed and carried on conversations w/ all of the staff like we were regulars. My wife and I will be regulars here because it was a perfect evening w/ great food , wine and conversation.
