“One of the best on recent visit to Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Excellent restaurant to eat fish, seafood. It is quite far away from Ao Nang center so tuk-tuk is a must. But it is really worth going there. My wife and me had Tom Yam and seafood salad, and continued with steamed white snapper, Thai way. And finished with fried banana with honey. Everything was good, delicious actually, fish very fresh. Although the meals were so spicy that I have never had something similar before, I mean I adore spicy food but this was really hot. The service was good. Interesting thing was the music, classic rock in Thai way, very special. The restaurant is big and was full, no free table, so go earlier. The price was normal, the same as in other restaurants, meaning: cheap. Go there and choose any fish or seafood, you will not regret!

“We got ripped off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We ate her on our last night after reading the reviews.
On the menu everything is priced apparat from the fresh fish.
We ordered king prawns after the waitress explaining that they were 800 Bart for one kilo.
We ordered four, when the bill came she had charged us over one thousand Bart for four prawns, claiming that they are one 1,800 Bart.
The waitress stated very clearly the original price, since here we are in a five star hotel & had the same prawns for half the price.
The food was nice, thought the squid curry was very chewy.
I personally wouldn't return.

“delicious sea food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

we had to go there twice as the seafood was not only fresh and very well cooked but also to an affordable price.

“THE fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

FIrst: it's located at the end of Nopparat Thara beach, so take absolutely a tuk tuk to go there from Ao Nang.
Second: don't judge the place by the first look...it may seem simple and sketchy, with really bad live music (very funny though...)
Third: enjoy any dish, choose your own piece of crab, snapper or anything and taste it!
Great seafood at an absolutely reasonable price.

“Awesome place, good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

We were here twice during our stay at Ao Nang and after our first visit we choosed this place to be the one where we eat our christmas dinner insted of eating it in some overpriced hotel buffet. Really good service and great variety of thai and sea food, also some western dishes for the kids to choose from. And also really spicy food :) Best value for money during our two week stay. Very recommedable.
