There isn't a lot to recommend about this place. I love the location of the quiet Nai Yang beach but the restaurant itself was disappointing. It was the first restaurant we tried while staying at the beach and even without the comparison to our later discoveries the food was far below expectations. We did not expect five-star quality presentation, just... More

My husband and I met the owner of this restaurant while on an early morning walk. He was bringing in his morning catch of fresh seafood. He pointed up the shore to his restaurant and promised to cook us up fresh squid for dinner that night prepared by his wife. He delivered what he had promised with fresh and tasty... More

Nice, family run restaurant around 100m left from Indigo Pearl hotel. Recommend only for lunch, as daytime it provides great natural shelter from the sun, as the tables are under the trees. However, during nightime, cannot be recommended, as there is a lot of mosquitos! Food is good, and the service nice. Cheap! But, having tested spring rolls almost in... More

This place is a bit off the beaten track, you have to go all the way down the NaiYang beachroad. The restaurant is run by a fisherman family, if you are lucky they just bring in a catch of the day. The menu focus on Thai food. Personally I like their red curry. And prefer steamed fish over the fried... More

It's a nice little place and all the staff are really nice. It's family run and the owner is clearly a hard working man. The food however was not too good. I had the chicken green curry soup and the chicken was hard and the soup tasted stale. I'm afraid I didn't feel great the next day. What a shame... More

The food is excellent and very cheap, the beer appears to be the cheapest in Nai Yang at $1.60 for a Heineken, the owner and staff are delightful, the service from the beautiful waitress is exemplary, the whole crab is under $6, the menu is extensive and we couldn't fault anything we ate during two visits, and sitting in our...

We had a dinner on the 26.04. at Bank Restaurant and the food was very delicious, and especially the owner is extremely nice and is doing his utmost to give you a great Thai dinning experience! They mix their own curry and if you ask for 'hot' or 'not hot' they deliver!! Great recommendation, a bit off the beaten track!

The bank is to the left of indigo pearl and well worth a visit. The food is typical thai and the fresh sea food is excellent. Staff are friendly and go out of there way to make sure you have a good night. Well worth a visit when staying at nai yang.

We had an excellent meal and were well taken care of by attentive staff at this family run restaurant on the beach road in Nai Yang. We ate our meal at a candle lit table on the beach. The menu seemed broad but we were there to eat to local Thai cuisine. It was excellent. We would go again on... More

We found this gem of a restaurant whilst staying at the Indigo Pearl. The food is excellent and you can choose your own freshly caught fish and have it cooked exactly how you like it. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff in this family run restaurant. Sitting on the beach in the moonlight with the waves gently lapping... More
