Went over to have drinks just before the sunset and it is the most fantastic view that I encountered.... the drinks can be improved during the happy hours. Food is good and the service team is very friendly and accommodating.... some interesting merchandizing items there as well.... definitely recommended for sunset....

In comparison to the island view they still have some ground to cover. Staff is nice but food tastes a bit unfinished..

My Thai wife and myself both agreed this is one of the better Thai restaurants we've eaten in for quite some. Food was very well balanced and cooked with excellent quality ingredients. Normally I write very elaborate and long reviews but that's not needed in this case. Just go there and try it out -Its well worth the drive from... More

We were in taling ngam for a wedding and this place was a real hit for all of us, between us we made many visits. The food was great, the service was great and so were the staff. They would even drive us back to our hotel after the meal. Truly recommended
