Food is not bad, but fancy-wannabe and too expensive

The food is quite good, probably a bit above average. But the thai people trying to treat guests like in a fancy high-end restaurant, bringing chairs for my small bag, and rushing to clean every finished plate and change a fork I used.. is just not so pleasant. It's a thai island, and thai people... read more

This restaurant is on such a gorgeous spot and the lights are pretty but that's unfortunately the best of it. The food was touch and go, we waited forever for dinner (I think they forgot our food). The absolute worst thing though was the entertainment... The music was soooo loud and the backtracks so cheesy. We couldn't thing or speak... More

The only great thing about this restaurant is that it's situated on the beach. It was beautiful with the tables set up on the sand and the large lighting on the beach. Aside from that, the food tasted terrible! Don't expect it to happen if you requested substitutions. My husband wanted thick noodles instead of glass noodles for the vegetable... More

Very disappointed with the quality of food in this restaurant. My husband got a steak and requested it well done, it was the rarest steak I have ever seen and sent it back to be offered an alternative which we did not accept. We were charged the equivalent of €30 for the steak even though it wasn't touched. I dread... More

We stayed for 2 nights at PP Erawan resort and this restaurant is pretty much connected to the hotel, We ate here both nights and they have a happy hour on the cocktails which were great. We had a beautiful table right on the beach which was really quite romantic, it did rain on the first night so the staff... More

Great restaurant in the area. You can choose between indoor or outside dining area, if you don't mind the heat. Great fresh drinks and local food.

We found this restaurant to be very refreshing in so many different ways. The entertainment was light-hearted, the food pretty good & the service was great. I have read other more negative reviews and don't quite know what some people expected, maybe a Broadway Show or Fine Dining perhaps? You're on a beautiful island with your feet in the sand... More

It is edible but it wont make you come back. You might as well pay less and goto Jasmine as the food is cheaper, abience is better and ove rall the food is better (although not great).

The entertainment in this place is something else - as long as you don't take it seriously you will enjoy it. from the old man singing who sounds like one of the muppets to the lady boys trying to dance and then the WWE Thai Boxing this place could be said to have it all in terms of Kitsch entertainment....

Sawasdee seems to be the most preferred restaurant for people staying in laemtong bay. 1. It has reasonable seating count and food options. 2. The food is good and not too overpriced as well. 3. Try the thai red curry with chicken...Delicious... 4. Staff is good. 5. The place keeps you entertained with traditional shows, music and thai boxing. If... More
