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

The staff were very friendly and courteous. We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. The food was okay but it quite expensive.

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

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.
