Very hot day and needed a Singah

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... read more

Very good service. The atmosphere is very good and they always make you feel welcome. The fresh seafood is recommended.

A fabulous find right on the beach at Karon, in front of the lake, next to MaMa Jin's. It was no trouble for the staff to accommodate our party of 10 people and the service was excellent. The beer and soft drinks were cold, arriving promptly after ordering and the cold hand/face towel on arrival was welcome in the heat.... More

My boyfriend and I got two mains, an entree, a bottle of water and a beer for around 420 bt. We had spring rolls for the entree. Perhaps the best we've ever had! Large portion and very fresh. Mains. A bit bland and we needed to add a fair amount of sauce to make it taste a bit better. Staff... More

Having read other reviews there seems to be more than one Talay restaurant. We intended on going to Mama Jins which is next door, but it was full so we tried here. Glad we did! It's on the beach front near the big roundabout in Karon. My husband and I had chicken red curry and our son had chicken burger.... More

This was the gem find on our ten day trip. Seriously great value for money, with awesome Thai dishes with lovely fresh produce. Catered for the Westerner as well with numerous other dishes. Looks like a café but do not underestimate this place worth the trip, chairs really comfy as well. Staff efficient and food out very quickly.

Hubby voted this "best Thai food on holidays". Ate here twice during our stay. Beautiful flavours Thai food. Hamburgers on the menu too. Cheapish, great service. Near the Ramada, opposite the beach. Décor is crisp white with colourful cushions and outside tables. Fabulous place to have a leisurely meal and watch the passing parade. Refreshing fruit shakes too. Very impressed... 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
