Good find! Excellent authentic Thai food with correct spiciness level (but modifiable on request). Slight language difficulties with only a few waiters able to speak English. They had difficulty taking our reservations on the phone and after a few attempts at calling them back as they requested, we got our hotel receptionist to do it. Most amazing, rustic and beautiful...

This place was a bit hard to find but it was well worth the effort...it is a favourite amongst the local community and we went on recommendation of our guide Frances. The menu was extensive and some of the dishes were quite unusual...there are dishes from all different provinces, my favourite was the roasted egg plant salad served with prawns... More

I would recommend dinner experience as the place is lit up and the bamboo huts and outdoor experience is unforgettable. The glass noodle with tiger prawn is delectable and the food is really delicious. The staff is friendly and service is good.

First, they have changed their name to anchali. Excellent service, food and beverages (had fruit shake/smoothies, tomyam, green curry, fried fish, omelette and vegetable) and ambiance was perfect for us too! Been eating lots of thai food and this one tops it all. Very worth it for the all-rounded service. Prices are around 120baht for most dishes. We went there... More

We over-ordered and over-ate. Had a great meal in a rustic setting which is worth the premium of the return taxi journey from our hotel. These are what the two of us ladies had (thanks to the great reviews from Tripadvisor members): 1. Raw shrimp with lime, chilli and garlic with dip (Best ever!) 2. Dried squid and shrimp with...

Fried shrimp balls, whiting and seafood tomyum was great. Had a local vegetable which I think is tapioca leaves stir fried with eggs was great too

This place is simply amazing. The food is outstanding – by far the best food in the area. We ordered the penang, green chicken curry and cashew chicken, along with some vegetables (kang kong and kai lan) – all were exceptional. The bamboo hut is also beautiful and a really romantic setting. It was perfect! It's moved so it's a... More

Can't find it. Ask locals and the Resto change its name to Anchalie. The exterior looks the same but haven't got a chance to try their food.
