The first time I visited this place I had a crispy snapper green curry which was just delicious, even if a bit westernised. We went back again on our last night and were left disappointed. I thought the fresh squid would be delicious but it was so chewy. The other food was just average. That said the location and atmosphere... More

Great food, great location. Really mellow and laid back. Felt unhurried and un pressured by the staff. Mum and I went for a meal, I eat spicy, she cannot stand spicy foods. I ate a seriously good red ruck curry, she enjoyed her salmon. We then retired to the bean bags for coffee and a spot of chit chat. Will... More

nice food and atmosphere - shame about the building site next door but it certainly didn't ruin what was a good night here.

The restaurant looks lovely - all in white with good tableware. However I ordered Chicken with cachew nuts and I got two small pieces of chicken and the rear was Tofu, which I really don't like. I told the waiter about this but he just shrugged his shoulders and out his hands in the air. Despite complaining we had to... More

The service was always very good and the food excellent. ( we went here around 10 times ) the best restaurant on the island. It can get busy at times with... More

We ate here twice in the 5 nights we were in Ko Tao. Very yummy and fresh food. It is pretty expensive compared to other thai places however worth it. We had the pad thai, duck and salmon and it was delicious. The entrees are not great though we tried the chicken skewers, roti and spring rolls they were very... More

We booked this restaurant for a pre wedding dinner. Pu the manager was very helpful, helping set up the tables, cutting card for place names, such friendly staff who seemed to enjoy the evening as much as we did. They closed the restaurant for us for the evening. Excellent buffet we chose from their suggestions. Drinks on the beach, excellent... More
