Beautiful meal by a lovely lily pond on a perfect Phuket night.

Good Thai food, nice cocktails in a truly beautiful setting. We sat at a table on the deck over a large lagoon covered in lotus plants, pretty sunset in the background.

This isn't the best or most authentic thai dining experience, but I have never had a bad meal here. I have taken children at lunchtime and dined alone with my partner in the evening and always enjoyed. Its a very large restaurant and I can imagine when busy it could be a bit too much. We did find ourselves sat... More

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
