A group of us were out walking at Karon Beach when it started to pour down. We went into the first place available to keep dry and quench our thirst with a local beer. As it was lunch time we decided to eat and were not disappointed. We ordered an array of food so we could share and sample more.... More

We were there two times. The first time and the last time. First we have to clear something: The same owner has 4 Talay restaurants. Three in Karon and one in Kata. (That's what the waiter told me.)We were in the one in Kata. On Paak Baang road. (The road that goes to the beach, at the north end of... More

Tried Talay again whilst in Karon for a week and again we were impressed. It is a nice place to either have a meal or just a snack mid afternoon. The Chicken Satay sticks and Veg Spring Rolls were awesome snacks and went down a treat with the very cold Singah's. As mentioned in previous reviews, it can be hard... More

Tried this restaurant as a group of nine and we were all very disappointed with both the service and food. The wait staff were more interested in chatting than serving the customers. When the food finally arrived after a substantial wait, some of the dishes were served cold. One dish was forgotten, and produced when we asked twice. No apology... More

Good food, friendly service, but the best part is location. It's right on the beach for great sunset viewing. It's also calmer and quieter than most. It's away from the hustler and bustled of most of Karon as are it's neighbors. The coconut soup was tasty.

I have been to this restaurant several times and the food has always been great, my wife and daughter loved the cocktails and location to the beach is great with sunsets to die for.

Chicken satay was great. Little English spoken but they tried to understand. The prawn dish we ordered did not seem to be exactly as the menu described ...
