Food was average and service was poor because they seem to have a system of only your table waiter/waitress could attend to your needs. If you try to order extra dishes/drinks from another, your order may not arrive. If you are sitting on the cushions, expect your bill to arrive just before the fire show (even if you haven't finished... More

Really good value food and tasty. The restaurant had a fire show when we went on a Sunday evening which lasted approx 45 minutes and was very impressive. The second night we went to the bar next door, which was the same price but nowhere near the quality and taste of this restaurant. Would definitely recommend it if you are... More

The restaurant sits literally on the beach where they do fire shows every night. It's an excellent entertainment whilst eating your dinner, although the service isn't that great. The restaurant gets super busy between 6-8.30ish so it's better to go a bit later if you want to be seated. To order you really have to draw the waiters attention otherwise... More

We ate in this restaurant to watch the fireshow. I guess it is the fireshow in the evening that gets the customer to dine in this restaurant. As I had been a resident of Thailand for years, I can say the food are not those I can say nicely cooked Thai food. Though I guess this restaurant have the best... More

The food is just average, but location is excellent, before before 8ish there was live band, after that fire man show. So it was quite an entertaining.

fun place on the beach. Had some live music, fun fire throwing show. The food was OK but could have been nicer and larger portion. Had a nice time though so wel worth a visit in the evening.

Great place on the beach, it is super busy and you do have to wait for a table, however it is worth it with fantastic food, excellent atmosphere and live music! Service can be slow due to how busy it is.

I had assumed this place was higher priced given its central location on the beach front and nightly fire shows, however its basic dishes are the same price as the local street vendors (50฿ mango shake/ pancakes, 70฿ pad thai). They also have a large range of fresh seafood grilled to order also reasonably priced. And you can sit on... More
