The food is absolutely delicious, obviously freshly prepared. It is a small restaurant, but very, very clean. The service is great, staff very friendly. They also have a... More

We were trying to go to the High Cotton BBQ Restaurant and it was closed. So - we saw this little restaurant and gave it a try. The food was amazing with a great menu. We have all agreed to go back tomorrow. It was that good!

Three of us stopped by for a late lunch at 3PM on a Sunday and were immediately greeted by the owner's son and seated at a booth; he offered us the opportunity to order from either the lunch or dinner menus. This restaurant has about seven tables, is nicely decorated, and offers plenty of tasty food cooked by our server's... More

I eat a lot of Thai food so I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh and wonderful the food was on the beach. We had the papaya salad, Bangkok Beef Jerky with sticky rice and coconut soup. All were amazing and spiced just right. This restaurant beats any restaurant I have eaten at in major metro cities. Service and prices... More

Stopped here with friends and it was a much appreciated surprise compared to most of the other typical beach restaurants. The food was absolutely delicious but be warned - it was much spicier than any other Thai restaurant I've ever eaten at! They also gave really small rice portions in comparison to the rest of the food which didn't help... More

We are so lucky to have a great Thai place here on our little sandbar! Always a good meal and very friendly staff. We order for delivery fairly often.

Excellent food. Big portions for a good price. Awesome service. Resturant was a little small, but otherwise great atmosphere. Great little find. Definitely recommend and will be returning.
