The last on the beach.....and was always our favourite

When the beach restaurants were bulldozed and removed from Naiyang it was bitter sweet. The beach is even more pristine but the restaurants were gone. But fortunately Octopus remained and still stands out for location view and food quality. Plus value. And ask for a magic trick !

Situated just opposite the beach in Nai Yang Octopus seemed an ideal place to eat and drink. However it seemed that I must be invisible for 5 minutes as the female waiting staff just went by without a glance and it was not that they were busy as there was only one other table occupied on the terrace. When the... More

This Thai place was so perfect we ate 3 x here. Much cheaper than our resort indigo pearl yet yum. Terrific sea views and a the guy Luk? Who was popular with everyone. He performed magic tricks like no one I've ever seen. Really clever. every meal was amazing. The wait staff were mostly from Myanmar and spoke excellent english.

We eat here with friends and the food was very pleasant, good selection of all Thai foods including fish dishes and overlooking the sea this might be expected. What I was most impressed with was that I accidentally paid them 10 x too much, as I wasn't paying attention to the notes I used. But the waiter returned with the... More

I came here pretty much every night for dinner and the food was consistently good. I am vegan and they were able to make a number of dishes vegan for me - the Red curry with Tofu was my favourite! Friendly staff too.

We are staying at the Indigo Pearl and loved the hotel but when we found out there were restaurants outside the resort we had to venture out to try them. Out of the current 6 nights here we have eaten at Octopus 4 of those nights! Not only for the reason that the bill is basically half the price of... More

We have been visiting Nai Yang for the last 5 years and Octopus was the first place we visited here for lunch. The food was delicious back then and has been consistently good every time we have returned. We are now back for a few days at the start of our honeymoon, and Octopus was the obvious choice for dinner... More

We had a great started lemongrass and chicken which was delicious. My wife had a chicken, vegetables in a pineapple which looked great but it lacked any flavour and had no spice. I had a crab meal which was supposed to be fried but came out more boiled than fried. On the plus side they make great mocktails. Service was... More
