Although the restaurant looks pleasant (reason why we chose it) the chicken satay starters were still pink inside, beware as look grilled and cooked from the outside. The seafood platter looked like everything had been dunked in a deep fat fryer and not very appealing. The squid was okay but seasoning was of chunks of garlic and overall not great.... More

We ended up eating here a few time as the food was a bit different from the other places. Try the fish with coconut milk and lime, it was delish! Staff were very friendly and very child friendly. It's not right on the beach like some of the others but food makes up for that.

We dined at this restaurant last night, the staff were very prompt and the seafood platter was beautiful. The restaurant was very busy. The restaurant was also very clean.

We are from Texas and were in country for a wedding at the Indigo Pearl. The first night there, we enjoyed having a great dinner right on the beach. The food was affordable and delicious. After trying out many restaurants on the beach, this one became our favorite. The variety and freshness of the food was inviting. I had the... More

Octopus is across the road from the beach but still has nice views. It has a separate vegetarian section in the menu, which a lot of the others don't have (though they are all very accommodating in making vegetarian options) I had a green curry and also spring rolls. Complementary prawn crackers to start and pineapple to finish was a... More

We went here this evening for an early dinner. Thought we'd try it even though we were the only ones in there. Starters were lovely, had stir fried prawns in crispy yellow noodles, they were great. My main was a bit bland, probably wrong choice, beef in garlic and chilli. Just that, no veg stir fried in. Shame really as... More

Had to try a piece of fish cooked especially for moi! Took longer than expected so we had to pass the time drinking cocktails (happy hour). All in all, a great experience literally on the beach.

We have been regular June or July visitors to Nai Yang Beach for the last 7 years & still find Octopus our favourite along the beach strip. Staff not only remember us from one year to the next but also remember our favourite dishes & drinks. We have always found the service to be prompt, even when arriving at their... More

Really friendly atmosphere, the staff were always willing to explain the dishes. We tried several restaurants but kept returning here. The stir fried beef curry is amazing
