I don't usually leave reviews on trip advisor, but when I do, it's because I'm suitably impressed. Entrees were delicious, imported beer served in a frosted mug was sublime, and the main I chose rounded it out perfectly. So happy right now. If you can't find something you like on the menu here, then you must be very difficult to... More

This place is amazing, stunning setting with views of the lake and public park. More than that, the food was amazing! Some of the nicest food I have eaten. All cooked fresh to order, not long to wait though. Read some of the poorer reviews and all I can say is, the French will whinge about anything given the chance.... More

Seriosly good food and an enormous array of beers & ciders, all reasonably priced. The view over the Nong SimThat lake and park is equally good. That both Thais and Ex-pats visit this little gem says it all...

I had lunch and kept it small with a kebab in home-made bread, fries, zaziki sauce and garlic sauce. Excellent food, very tasty. Staff very friendly, view on lake and... More

We sought out this restaurant for dinner after reading online reviews and I am glad we did. The menu is extensive and the staff friendly. There were many veg choices and I skeptically order Indian type curry; my husband had Thai food. The curry plate I had was more food than is served in many Thai restaurants with naan, rice... More

Sought out this restaurant after web search. We ordered a cheese pizza and a Carlsberg. The pizza was amazing! The beer was a little pricy at $4.00 USD compared to $2.10 at Big C, but foreigners (falangs) must pay more in taxes than Thais do, so it's understandable. The pizza was delicious, goat cheese(?) made the difference... Thin crust was... More
