We usually go around 5:30pm before it gets too crowded. Swim suits and sandals abound, as does delicious, if somewhat toned-down Thai food. We like all the shrimp and veggie dishes, the non-fried spring rolls, the lovely soups and the brown rice. We avoid the noodle dishes because they look way to tempting for our waistlines. Courtesy, youthful staff, reasonable... More

We had an unforgetable lunch for a group of twelve. Service was fantastic and the meal good! They run out of the wine we started with, they compensated us with a better one.

We had a lovely experience at this restaurant. The setting was beautiful, we were there late in the afternoon so the sun was setting and it wasn't too busy. The waiter was SO helpful and made great suggestions of wine pairings to the food we had ordered. We hadn't had much luck with nice wine ( I'm no connoisseur but... More

Best coconut shrimp ever. In 1996 I was introduced to this place and have been back whenever I get to the area. I have also dined at the Tampa FL location. The view is breath taking at sunset, the seating is intimate, the parking is doorside, the greeting is always professional, the servers are wonderful and most importantly the food... More

I went to this place after a previous visit with work. It did not start well, the blonde hostess forgot us; the restaurant was at 30% capacity at 2:30 on Saturday. After 25 minutes waiting at the bar we reminded her. The hostess moved slowly to correct her error and no apologies whatsoever, by hostess or management. The food- Salmon,... More

Although the location was excellent, this felt like an overpriced tourist trap. We ordered the appetizer recommended by the waiter. It was supposed to be tempura veggies with seafood on top, but it tasted like a deep-fried state fair concoction with a glob of mayo on top. Could not locate the seafood. We returned it, cancelled our order, paid for... More

We went to dinner early Sunday night to enjoy the sunset and have a pleasant dinner. We sat at a table for 4 at the window overlooking the beach and the ocean. At 5:44 as promised the sun began its daily setting ritual. The sky light up in all of its magnificent pallet, reds, yellows, and blues (translates when mixed... More

The restaurant was very good and the service was great. These were all expected and were all delivered. The beach setting and the setting sun were spectacular. This isn't a 'value' restaurant but it does provide an excellent meal.

I would highly recommend the restaurant for a romantic evening. Request a table by the window. The beach is lighted and the watching the waves roll in while eating dinner is so relaxing. All the fish is fresh and prepared in many different ways. The staff went out of their way to make suggestions.
