We picked this restaurant at random - and we're delighted with the food, the staff, the ambience and Mango the pooch. Two fishes dishes to share - barracuda shredded and light, and catfish with three sauces - were astonishingly good. The sauce for the barrucuda was tart and excellent. Jonas, I think the owner, picked the menu for us and... More

Ate here specifically because of the positive TA reviews after visiting the market, but not at all impressed by the service or the food. The maitre seemed highly efficient and friendly but despite the lack of customers he did not visit us, the server that came to us was not particularly communicative or friendly. We were equally unimpressed with the... More

I am really surprised by the more recent reviews of this restaurant. It was recommended to us by our holiday rep and we ended up eating here twice during our week holiday in Khao Lak.

Went here 2 months ago and found the food fantastic and staff very welcoming and informative. Recently returned and found the exact opposite. Disappointed in the vegetable mussaman curry which consisted of copious amounts of watery sauce and very little vegetables, and a very small serve of rice.not returning this time.

We booked this restaurant on our last night and enjoyed the friendly, helpful service. As we are both in our seventies the Manager seated us away from the Market side so there was less noise and advised us on what dishes to try. The food was tasty and not too spicy and it is definitely a place worth visiting.
