The location is perfect, situated on the beautiful beach of kantiang. The service was the worst we had in our life....there was no service!!! The staff didn't even show up at our table, we called them several times and were waiting for about one hour. The we left to the " Noon Sunset Point" and this restaurant was just amazing!!!!

Came here because the Thai food in our nearby resort was good but too tamed-down for my taste (I guess they have to do that to please the majority of tourists).

The setting is beautiful, but the indifferent service was disappointing as everywhere else we ate or visited in Ko Lanta excelled in their quality of service. Walk to the other end of the beach for better service, atmosphere and cheaper food with similar views.

the food was solid thai food, but the atmosphere was what made this place. most memorable meal on our trip! It was on the far end of the island, though, so it was a bit hard to get to.

Great Thai food, some with a twist. Their shrimp carpaccio is very tasty! Make sure to book a table and get there in time to view the sunset.

We had a quick stop here just for a fruit lassi which was very nice and very tasty. The restaurant is on the beach and the tables are overlooking it, which is very scenic. The fruit lassi and the food we checked was quite expensive which made us not eat here

On a beautiful beach, this restaurant has a gorgeous setting, stylish but casual, great food & drinks and nice staff. The tables at the front overlooking the bay are best.

A nice beachfront restaurant but expensive. At peak season, difficult to get à table and the personel was not willing to helt out.
