A bit on the more posh side of Thai, without loosing it's relaxed authenticity. Very good food. Slightly pricier, but not unjustified at all. If you don't have many days to stay and want to make a safe bet for dinner, you can go here.

Everything about the place was just great, we had a friendly welcome and were asked to head down to the beach bar whilst we waiter for a table (we didn't pre-book). The bar area has beds... More

Wish we found this place sooner. Great seafood & curries, good service & reasonable prices. Lovely to sit on the sand & drink cocktails while you wait for a table (reservations a must if you do not want to wait!) Lovely ambiance & vibe.
