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

The setting was completely romantic, nothing like eating on the beach with your loved one! The food and service was outstanding! My husband and I were staying at the Conrad but wanted to experience different restaurants during our stay. This was one of the ones we picked and we were so happy! Watching the sun set with the view of... More

What a shame! This used to be one of the best spots on the island for a special or romantic dinner in a fabulous location on the beach - I have been here many times over the years. Sadly it is under new ownership and has lost all of its sparkle. The best of the staff have gone, the food... More

We went here by chance when our driver, Nam, said he knew a nice place for lunch. Straight away I think here comes a tourist trap, but that couldn't have been further from the truth. Wonderful lunch on the beach overlooking the Five Islands. Attentive staff and food well prepared and presented. It was so good we decided to go... More

We when here for a perfect sunset - and got more. The sunset was excellent and the service for drinks and food at this perfect beach location made the experience much better then expected

We look a table on the beach in natural shade of some lush trees. We found the staff very friendly and tentative. The food was delicious and served quickly. They have a wonderful setting with amazing views and the choice of inside or outside dining. Well worth another visit!
