Good food, extensive menu, sweet cocktails, nice spot. Pretty much nailed the cheap beachside Thai restaurant.

Needed a salt-clearing beer and energising snacks after a frolic in the waves and ambled (ok, shambled) to this place. There were exquisite orchids being grown at the entrance, and a peculiar vehicle festooned with bric a brac within. Idiosyncratic probably covers the decor! Fantastic minced chicken toast, satay and fishcakes ... which we devoured even before we remembered to... More

Food was alright, but the atmosphere was fantastic. Right on the beach, lanterns hanging from the palm trees, quiet. Just loved it!

So last week when we were in nai yang there seemed little choice in places to dine, I had read some reviews on this restaurant and the couple we were with had eaten here previous and praised... More

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
