I went there with my group of colleagues and the buffet spread was good and the service was very good. Some of the dishes were very good and some dishes were average. Overall its a good experience.

While the service was good, the buffet spread when I visited as part of a group could have been better. The quality was also average. Nothing to complain about but there's nothing to shout about too..

The first time we came into this restaurant, it was by pure luck - we just liked how it looked from outside. Once you enter, you get into a beautiful restaurant that is set up next to the sea. Though this place is less popular than other restaurants in Patong, it has decent food and is perfect for a romantic... More

We arrived here just before sunset and had a table right on the edge of the restaurant. As part of a group with a set menu we dined quite well. Meals came out quickly to share and were hot. The light curry soup with tiger prawns were very good. Overall a good experience

We visited as part of a large group. Started with drinks and it was good to be able to wonder down to the beach and watch the sunset. Buffet dinner had a wide range of offerings which seemed to satisfy most people. Right in Patong so each to go for a walk after dinner.

Had dinner at restaurant on 21 Nov 2013. The Thai food we had was very average although the ambience is satisfactory. A little pricey, it being situated in a beach front hotel. There are lots of other restaurants in Patong and other beach locations which offer better - in terms of food standards, service quality and ambience.

We went to this restaurant with friends as they had been many visits before. The ambience of the restaurant as you walk up the narrow lane is great, then the inside & outside looks really good. Staff are wonderful & very Thai in making you feel welcomed. It's a shame the new owners hadn't kept their Maitre'd & their wonderful... More

Took my Mum here for her birthday dinner this week. She was blown away by the beautiful view, wonderful food and lovely service. I had sate prawns. The presentation was faultless. Mum's barramundi on wasabi mash was fantastic. The band sang happy birthday when the wait staff brought out the cake I'd ordered the day before. So nice. Sitting right... More

Wonderfully presented food & great atmosphere! We dined there on a set menu situation with limited selections for each course, but found that the food was beautifully and very artfully presented. Most enjoyable meal we had " under the stars" in Phuket.
