Our favourite

We loved this place! The staff were wonderful people and the place was cosy with interesting decorations. Food was great too, espcially for the price they charged for it.

Don't go here if you don't like thaifood, because this place really know how to cook authentic thai dishes. Try their mango salad, order some fried rice and crab in red curry and you will love it! Also their fish is really good. They serve wine by the caraf. I love this place and keep coming back year after year.... More

If you want a fancy setting with 5* service, you won't find that here. However what this place does offer, is delicious fresh tasting seafood at very (very) reasonable prices. Staff will help you to pick out fresh lobsters, squid etc from front of restaurant which they'll then cook for you. You won't leave here with an empty stomach. The... More

Absolutely delicious food and so fresh (if you're having fish you choose it from the stall at the front), Kwong's really is as good as everyone says it is. We particularly enjoyed the friendly atmosphere not just from the staff (big thumbs up to Mr Okaaay!!) but also from the international clientele. We got chatting to people from many different...

Small prices but tourists eat with plenty of flavor enhancers (glutamate?). Thai food is a little different. Bad are the permanent oooo.kkkaaaay shouts. The welcome joy is even played. The decor is simple and primitive. Under a Thai restaurant we had imagined something else. There are many alternatives. M.

Had some nice fresh seafood dishes here. You must try a whole fish (fried / steamed/ bbq) with a sauce. I had it with baby ginger and it was delish. The owner (Mr Okayyyyy) was there and was fabulous, as previous reviews suggested he was buzzing around the whole time with a smile on his face. Such a happy and... More

Eight of us had dinner there last week and it was very good! We picked different types of fish, crabs, prawns and Thai curries. The seafood was cooked to our preference. While we waited for our dinner we took turns playing Connect 4 and Jenga. It's very clean even though it does not look very flashy. We also had cocktails... More

Stopped by here after seeing other reviews. We were checking out the menu by the seafood stand at the front of the restaurant and a staff member came out to help. She helped us order a bunch of seafood dishes and was actually picking the seafood to cook right at the stand as we were ordering. She told us how... More
