The whole fish fried with herbs all over, and crab cakes shaped like donuts were too good. Giant prawns and green curry chicken were outstanding as well. Close to JW,Marriott, Vacation Club and Renaissance. Go and plan to try a lot of food, very reasonable prices.

Fuss-free local restaurant. Fresh ingredients (fish), authentic home-cooked flavours with the option for 'hardcore' spicy level (one day perhaps). For dinner, we had green mango salad, fried fish (house special), chicken wings, obligatory stir-fried morning glory, with takeaway mango sticky rice for desert. We ate early at 6:00 PM, service was friendly. For a quick lunch, they delivered to our... More

Food is great, the chef certainly has innovated and added oomph to a lot of Thai dishes with fresh herbs, etc. The staff were not friendly and aloof,,.could be they were rushed off their feet but all we were expecting was a simple "thank you" for the tip!

We tried taking a taxi there for a meal there, wasn't the best move as the taxi weren't cheap. We ordered from Kim Dee by looking at their menu online and they delivered to our hotel for free! Super convenient with 3 kids! All their food were delicious, hard to fault it! The waitress could definite do better in regards... More

Staying at the JVMarriott we took a local taxi for 500 baht to the restaurant and for that price the driver waited for us. A nice start. The restaurant is elevated, clean and portable fans provided necessary comfort. The menu was extensive and we settled on papaya salad, massaman chicken curry and their signature fish. All were delicious and very... More

We were here a few years ago and came back for more good Thai food. Unfortunately all 8 dishes we ordered had been too much adapted to please non-Thai palates.

This is a Thai Restaurant with excellent food and service. It is a typical open air pavilion overlooking a lake. While there are instructions about how to walk there, this is along the main highway with no footpath - we thought it was a bit dangerous. A taxi will take you there and wait for 700 BHT. Try the whole... More
