I am a little surprised at not seeing more 5 stars at this restaurant because we ate here twice and the food was excellent. Our first time was with a group of 21 people. We made reservations and vans were sent to our resort Angsana to pick us up. This is a free service the restaurant offers to its guests.... More

The cocktails in this place were fab. The food was ok as well but what was missing was people and atmosphere so we only went there once as there was not music.

Restaurant is decent, big and clean. Food was nice but did not live up to its Thai legacy. Tom Yam Goong was tasty but not spicy. Very friendly and considerate staff.

This is large restaurant near Laguna hotels. I think it assumes customers will not be returning anyway so food was disappointing. No effort and our pork main course was poor. Service fine and attentive but there are many better places to eat nearby. We have become so used to excellent Thai cooking that this was a bit of a shocker.

Nice fruit shakes but food was just average for the prices. We tried quite a few appetizers and most of them were heavily fried (in oil which I would say was due for changing) but some of the group did enjoy the seafood salad. They do have a courtesy car/van to pick you up from your resort.

Popped in for a light lunch. The place was very quiet and peaceful. Where we sat there was nobody other than a couple of staff. I ordered Phad Broccoli with boiled rice. You would usually have broccoli as a side dish but not here. It is a main course and a very good one. There was lots of fresh garlic,... More

The restaurant is set on the Laguna. We had a table right next to the water. We ordered food for four and waited 50 minutes for the starters to arrive. When they did arrive after excuses from the manager the prawn cocktail which my wife had ordered looked like old floppy prawns. Not what we have been used to eating... More

We were sorry to go their very expensive drink and food which you get in other restaurants at a much better price.

We ate here and it's a lovely setting on a lagoon. It's a large restaurant and it wasn't very busy so a table was easy to get. The menu is large and clearly caters to western tourists, but we chose Thai food. The food came in courses which was nice rather than all the dishes arriving at once. We had... More

This restaurant is just outside front gates of the Laguna resort development. It is markedly cheaper than the restaurants within Laguna but it is still not cheap. The main course and non-alchoholic drinks for two cost just over 1,000 baht. The great feature of this restaurant is that it is build over a lagoon which is filled with water lilies... More
