“lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Went here after a disappointing meal at the overrated Rockfish, and ended up going back twice! Beautiful views, service and delicious food. Tip- don't over order, there is complimentary bread and dips at the start of the meal! Try the Beef salad for an entree, the true taste of Thailand.
Highly recommended.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We had no expectations about this new commer to Kamala. But wow it was amazing. The service welcoming and well priced drinks. Stunning view over the beach matching the food. We started with pomelo chicken salad and pork neck thai style. Both are musts.
Can't wait to go back and go through the menu presented by a very eager chef.

“A Quality Restaurant in a Great Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This restaurant has only been open a short time, and it was clearly constructed with great love and care - with great attention to detail. The service is great, probably helped by the fact that all the staff seem to be from the same family, and the chef is really good, coming from one of the larger hotels on the island.
Overlooking Kamala Bay, this restaurant provides a very relaxing environment for any meal.
The only negatives for me were that the layout of the restaurant itself was far too formal - and did not do justice to the restaurant as a whole. There were no 'nooks and crannies' where you could dine with a degree of seclusion. The restaurant dining room lights were far too bright, and this made it difficult to experience any 'atmosphere'. The Thai music was quite basic and repetitive and could be quite irritating after a while. But all in all a restaurant with great potential.
