Fancy eating at the NEST-aurant The “bird abode” dining pods perched on tree tops where waiters fly though the air on zip-lines
At 283 for a meal for two, it’s not cheap… although it certainly is cheep.
Because this is the world’s only restaurant where diners are seated in a bird’s nest.
The giant wicker pods, which look just like the straw-meshed abodes of our feathered friends, are perched in tree tops 16ft above the ground.

Bird”s eye view: Diners can enjoy stunning vistas as they sit 16ft up trees on the island of Koh Kood
Once nestled inside, diners get an eagle-eyed view of the stunning rain forest and surrounding coastline of the luxury Soneva Kirl Resort in Thailand.
And you needn’t worry about getting out of your tree should you require a wine top-up as a ‘flying’ waiter – transported on a zip-line – is on hand to deal with your every request.
Each two-seater pod has a landing strip where the acrobatic server can perch to take orders and delivers food and drink.
And, rather than take a ladder up, dinersare gently hoisted up inside the pod by a winch which allows the nest to go up and down.

Boasting that the tree-top chefs have taken ‘haute cuisine to new heights’, the Sonova resort serves traditional Thai delicacies, including fish caught from the surrounding shores.
Its website suggests visitors, who pay 14,000 baht for a meal for two – about half a month’s wages for most Thais – ‘feast on organic fare by starlight overlooking the midnight blue Gulf of Thailand’.
The resort, on the island of Koh Kood, also offers a service of dropping travellers off by speedboat on a deserted beach to enjoy a picnic.
