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

We used to really like this place, but wont be going back any more. The starters that we chose were fine and up to the usual standard, but the main courses were all very 'shiny' and obviously full of MSG. There are better places just across the road on the beach that dont use MSG - I dont like leaving... More

First of all I have to say that I went there for the second time, because the first time was great. I had the best thai curry ever and also the service was excellent. So, on my last day I wanted to have that great experience again. It was lunchtime and i was the first customer, so they were not... More

I hate giving bad reviews but feel that this is one I have to give. It was our last night in Thailand and we were looking forward to having a really fine last Thai meal. We saw the octopus restaurant and both agreed it looked great. Once seated, we must have waited 15mins before we were asked what we wanted... More

Octopus is my very favorite. The waiters are maybe not well trained. They sometimes seems to be 'lost' but they are so friendly and doing their best that you can't blame them. Their food is sometimes a little bit too salty bit it's very good and they make you feel good. The menu is very large and the portions are... More
