What a great place and I guess recommended by every hotelier in the area hence it's difficult to get a table but we managed. What a nice place and a good atmosphere as well as good food.

Excellent food. Excellent service. Went back twice. Thai prawn curry was as good if not better that you get in Thailand. Seafood was very good. Need to book especially at weekends.
