Great small place

We arrived and were lucky to get a table since it is pretty small and has around ten tables. Some tables have hammocks to sit at, very cool, I dont know if one can eat noodles comfortably in those... I had the pad thai which was excellent and had the peanuts and chilli on the side, I mixed in... read more

Me and my partner loved this little restaurant! We ate here a few times in our 9 day holiday at the Pimalai Resort. We ate alot of Thai food and sometimes we just needed a chicken burger! And it was probably the best chicken burger and BLT ive ever had! Lovely friendly family based waiter and waitress's !

We ate here on three separate occasions for breakfast each time the food, drinks and service were very good. This is a cool, laid back coffee shop with a great vibe and very close to Kantiang Beach.

We got to this restaurant, since the one we initially wanted to go to was closed; in the end, it didn't matter, because Drunken Sailor is really a nice and charming place. The Food and the drinks served are really tasty and well-made, while the Menu they are listed on is funny and interesting to read. The prices are absolutely... More

I don't see how this place is so high on the list, but after experiencing similar things with other highly positioned places, I guess that people who travel, don't look for authenticity. Even though the location is bad (on the road), I gave it a chance due to good reviews. We had daily special: a fish burger, which was actually... More

We enjoyed a lovely relaxed breakfast here one morning and liked it so much we came back for dinner! The restaurant itself is small with only space for a few hungry guests, however it is decked out with hammocks and cushions to make everyone there comfortable. We really loved the hot and iced coffee's and had a yummy breakfast here... More

Something about the name of this place turned us off, but thank god we decided to give it a try. This is one of our all-time favorite restaurants b/c they know that atmosphere is just as important as food. Oh, and the food is exquisite as well. The epitome of relaxing, non-rush, take your time dining. Also, don't be fooled... More

The restaurant looks cute. People working there are rather friendly. But this is more like a place for tourists. We didn't try their western food. But their thai food is rather soso. Not very good for the price.

Excellent ambiance, fabulous menu with interesting food. I tried a curried chicken burger which was really tasty. Service was laid back but excellent. Highly recommended 😎
