“Decent as a bar, poor Thai food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Swing bar is a nice enough place to go for a drink and watch the fire show. Tried 3 of the Thai dishes on the menu, laab moo was totally forgettable ,Tom Yam seafood had one small prawn floating amongst the squid which was the only other seafood ingredient , and another seafood curry which again was almost entirely made up of squid.

We went to the swing bar for dessert and the fire show. The highlight was the Human Firework. Good show.

“it's a bar not a restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

It's a bar with loungin on the beach with a fireshow.
Yes you can eat there but it's not very good. But people come here to drink a maybe eat a burger. The people who rate this as a good restaurant are probably young drinking people who don't eat out a lot.
Bar is cool, fireshow is great. Food is average at best.
