Visited a couple of nights ago. The new location is much more spacious than the old location. Food is just as good, Penang curry particularly good, specials were very good especially the fresh crab, a real treat. Staff were as friendly and attentive as before, good luck with the new restaurant

We got lost finding this place but this was well worth the search. We loved the pineapple curry with chicken, it was nice and creamy without being overly rich. The peanut paste in the curry was quite special. Coconut tom yum soup was also good! Sweetness of the coconut compliments tom yum soup very well. We also had prawn &... More

Had to visit this while in kata seeing as it is number one rated. Enjoyed all aspects of the venue. I booked early to get a table as I was under the impression it would be busy, but it is low season and there was some space available. The owner was very witty, knowledgable and welcoming.

Visited tonight having looked at Trip Advisor for inspirations and not disappointed Fresh, vibrant and tantalising tastes dance around your mouth and provide a visual sensation for your eyes Beautifully cooked and presented Thai food that delivers on all fronts. They are proud of what they cook and deliver and should be a brilliant meal

"Fresh, vibrant and tantalising tastes dance around your mouth and provide a visual sensation for your eyes." We love your review.

This restaurant is a 5 minute walk from Kata main intersection and well worth tracking it down. The food was brilliant & attention to service was exceptional. We had tempura prawns & squid & crab cakes which were divine. Our main course was there special, ginger & Thai snapper which was amazing.
