Good food at a very reasonable price. Staff are Thai and appear disinterested but I know from experience that's just a culture thing.

The staff looked disinterested and messed up my order of a falafel sandwich to a falafel set meal, which was double the price, not good for a traveller on a budget, just for a bowl of salad extra. When I explained it wasn't what I ordered they said I... More

I love cats, and there are great ones here. The food is all fresh and a lovely setting just right on the waterfront at Saladan.

I went to the Catfish for a breakfast and had 2 eggs with bacon, toast, coffee, fruit juice and a fresh fruit platter. I was in a hurry and the staff was very kind in bringing everything very quickly to the table. I also got the fruit in a plastic box to take with me. The location is amazing, you... More

We ordered two drinks and one beer, only the drinks arraived and we had to remind several times before we got the beer... More

For some reason we keep coming back to Catfish, even though the service is not the usual friendly thai. They really seem like they couldn't care less. Food is great and pretty cheap, though. Stick to the thai food, however: my little brother ordered a hamburger and there was a metal staple in his food....
