Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our dinner at Kengai was delicious! The ambiance was amazing, the service team was impeccable and Jose made our family dinner one of the highlights of our vacation. If you're ever in Tulum, this restaurant at The Conrad is a must!

Jose was our server and he did an excellent job!! He was very attentive, and even got Daniel the mixologist at the bar, to make us drinks with egg white! Jose went above and beyond for us at dinner. The edamame, the dumplings, the pad...thai and combination fried rice were absolutely delicious and by far our favorite restaurant while staying at the Conrad.More

Great experience! Both the service and food were amazing. Jose was our server, he was very welcoming and very attentive. He recommended a few menu items and it didn’t disappoint. We really loved the bibimbap and pad thai!

Excellent pan-Asian restaurant. We ate here twice while staying at the Conrad. The red curry and bibimbap were both excellent. Service was great as well.
