We have been there for Dinner. And it was good Food. Service ok and the restaurant is huge so usually no problem to drop by without reservation. The Restaurant focus on Tourist from the Laguna area. Stuff was ok but not that friendly as normal in Thailand. Would I recommend the Restaurant? I don't know. The feeling in the Restaurant... More

Chaba own pretty much everything on the strip leading to the Laguna hotels The Chaba supermarket is great. But this restaurant was worse than average. Food was overly greasy, no flavour, and then on top of the higher than local prices they then added tax on top of the listed prices. Cheeky. And not worth the money. Other local places... More

This is a huge restaurant but when we went there were no more than 10 people dining. Despite this, service was slow and poor. Food was at best very ordinary and prices were well up. But the worst thing of all was the depressing atmosphere. No member of staff had a smile - we even asked our waitress what the... More

Very fresh crab. Must try !! And green curry chicken was delicious!! You could tell them for the level of spicy. Phad Thai !! Also recommended. The juice was nice. Try the mixed one, eg banana mixed and the starrwberry mixed. They will offer you lake-side seat if possbile. Free ride also available. Price was higher than other thai food... More

Chaba seems to own half the town outside the Laguna resort and maybe that's why they feel they can serve up bland, tasteless stuff that should embarrass anyone who has ever eaten Thai food deserving of that title. Staff is as engaged as your average crack addict and - for what it is - is is pricey. We didn't complain... More

As a long time resident of Phuket, I was in the area several days ago, in the early afternoon, and hungry. The place looks pretty upmarket, so my wife (Thai) and I went in. After the initial shock of the prices (Pak Boong - 190 Baht) we settled for a crab in the shell dish, which I thought was good... More

Foods here is made to suit tourist's style and liking, so although it was decent, it did not fulfill my expectation as I am looking for genuine Thai food. Has a romantic waterfront dining area though, and staffs are friendly and considerate, but expect it to come with a price. Much more pricey then an average Thai restaurant. Do recommend... More
