Being from Chiang Mai I have to try this restaurant when I drove pass. I went here with my wife and little 20 month old daughter. The service was very good we didn't book since we though it's the middle of winter there would be nobody around but how wrong were we ! In saying that they ask us if... More

I've been going to this restaurant for about 10 years now and it's always sensational! Love the food and the ambience. The food is always consistently good and it's fun sitting in the outside bungalows. Garlic Basil Seafood or Red Curry Prawn are my favorites!

I suggested this restaurant to my colleagues since it looked like it was highly rated. I was actually quite embarrassed when we went because the food was without doubt the worst Thai I have ever had. It was more like cheap Chinese food that you would buy in a food court.

Great value and location. Staff very attentive and food just so delicious. Couldnt of asked for better service. The decore just takes you to another place. Lots of families and couples so seems to suit all.

The service was great, always waiting on the table ensuring your glasses are topped up and that your food is alright. Lots to choose for on the menu. Great authentic flavours and very generous servings. Only bad thing is not being able to split the bill. Otherwise a great atmosphere, delicious food and helpful staff. Highly recommended!!!

Been here a few times and it maintains its rep as good quality, fast thai food. BYO which is good, and friendly staff. They do takeaway too.

We came here for dinner with a visiting kiwi friend who was looking for rice or pasta before a half marathon the next day. We've been to Thailand 3 times and know our food and this place hit the spot exactly !!! What can I say... everything we ordered was awesome... and the portions are very generous and we ended...

Went here with the family on our holiday. It was a nice walk from our hotel on the esplanade. Had lovely service and great meals. Room was heated as it was a very cold night which was welcome. Had some trouble reading the menu with the lighting in the room though. Food could not be faulted. Had a lovely evening.

Well, the Thai food has been localised so things that should be spicy are not spicy enough e.g. tom yam soup. But still they were delicious. The pineapple fried rice was great! Please also order the chicken satay and dip the sauce with the satay. It was fantastic! Beef green curry was bad though as the beef was very tough.... More
