Very welcoming and runs very smoothly. James the owner is very warming, humorous and a true delight. We enjoyed the food for 2 adults and 2 children. The children enjoyed the freshly made tempura nuggets and we enjoyed the chicken & cheese spring rolls, prawn tempura and money bags/spring rolls. We also tried the mixed grill and tiger prawns.

We got seated right away, we didn't have a reservation, but waited 10/15mins until somebody came with menus and to take drinks order. The food was lovely, nice atmosphere and I think the owner is maybe French? Well... More

I know why this restaurant is No 1 is Khao Lak. It was closed when we first arrived in town but so glad it reopened before we left. It is very busy so make sure you book. The food was sensational and great value. Cannot wait to go back.
