went to recycle the one night it was open on our trip. The smell from the river under the building was so bad we only ate half our meal and had to leave. Be aware there is an open sewer next to this restaurant. Never again.

Cool little restaurant with amazing interior design that they've made from recycling bits and bobs, great food at fantastic prices and if you get a window seat at the back of the restaurant, the view out the back is just delicious. Totally recommend this to anyone, well worth a little mooch down to :)

While its appearance may be off putting, this place is a gem. We enjoyed two excellent meals here - both times faultless. The staff are friendly and able to communicate in very good English. Apart from the delicious food and great cocktails, the setting is absolutely intriguing and an entertainment in itself. The ingenuity required to create the building and... More

Not Spicy sums up this delightful quaint eatery. Run by a family who took three years to build this wonderful surprise, the hospitality is apparent directly you are escorted to your table. Not airconditioned but with fans a'plenty the food provided is seasoned to your taste,and it very important to note the understanding of English and your wishes, shown by... More

This was my first time to The Recycle and I have raved about it since. A lot of the decoration is recycled hence the name. It is cosy and so different from some of the other restaurants in Rawai. The food was just outstanding we had Prawn Tempura and I have to say this was the best I have ever... More

I'm not sure what this restaurant looks like during the daytime but at night time it is a most interesting, charming and lovely place to eat. The decor is that of a beachcombers collection which with the clever application of lighting is very impressive. The more that you look around the more that you see and its guaranteed to put... More

Bit of a strange combination, and the name is maybe not the best for a restaurant. The food is excellent. Tried the shark massaman, vegetable omelette, pran in garlic and pepper, and vegetable fried rice, and recommend them all (prices per dish 80-120 Baht). The setting is nice, with cushioned wooden pews, and an indoor and outdoor section. Family run,... More
