Tonight we went and had dinner at Better Than Sex. Great service, cocktails were good, food was AMAZING! Spring rolls, pizza, and crepes. Don't know what the previous reviewer is on about. There's an old dog there called Toto (I think) who the English owners bought over from Samui. They DEFINITELY DID NOT SHOOT ANY DOGS while we were there.... More

I went to Better Than Sex for dinner with my husband and it was fantastic - what a creative menu! There was so much to choose from, but I had the pizza with Thai basil and beef (some Thai name) and was well impressed with it. He had one of the pasta dishes and loved it too. I'd highly recommend... More

A cool, laidback, restaurant nestled between a cave and a pretty little garden with a fish pond. The inside is beautifully illuminated with crazy lamps and carved dark wood, creating a relaxed, cosy atmosphere. The menu is very extensive, ranging from Thai usual suspects,via Lao and Burmese cuisine, to western dishes and pizza. People say the pizzas are nice, but... More

It's a pretty big call to claim to be better than sex! Really nice bar/restaurant though, I'd definitely recommend checking it out.

We arrived in a large party - all thoroughly well fed, and lubricated whilst sitting outside under the stars

This place was recommended by one of the locals, and for pizza with a twist, this is definitely the place to go. Slightly more expensive than the surrounding restaurants, but fantastic decor and amazing service.

We decided to try a restaurant outside of where we were staying and we would never to that again. We had food poisoning from the restaurant. We had curry dishes and also salmon. My sons had it so bad that we had to cancel our snorkelling trip for the next day and we were still sick for the next few... More

We were in Tong Naipan Beach with a 2 year old. We went to BTS twice for the pizza. The pizza is really not bad, thin and juicy and very tasty. The rest of the food is also 4 stars out of 5 in context to where you are. There are just not that many food options at this beach.... More
