“Excellent surprise...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

After spending 20 minutes walking down the beach road in Ao Nang and passing by endless number of Italian style restaurants, tattoo parlours and forex shops we finally came past this small restaurant offering Thai food. We weren't expecting much but ended up having one of our best Thai meals ever. The crispy fried chicken was excellent and both the squid with basil and chilli paste and the prawn with chillies were a winner. Great flavour and fresh ingredients. Pad Thai chicken was good but not spectacular but green mango salad made up for it. Juices were also fresh albeit a bit sweet and suspect extra sugar was added. Service friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend to those looking for some authentic Thai food amongst the plethora of Italian and other foreigner friendly restauants in Ao Nang.

“Great Seafood, Friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The local thai food in this restaurant was tasty. Their spicy duck salad was tasty and their seafood dishes were delicious(Try the spring onion -fried crab!).
The barbecued barracuda was seasoned well but a portion of it was uncooked. When it was pointed out to the service staff, he smiled warmly, apologised and took it off the bill without me even asking.
The fried rice was done so nicely that it merited a repeat visit for lunch the next day!

“Tasty Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We have our first dinner in Ao Nang at this little restaurent. We ordered Pad Thai, Clear Soup Tom Yum Gong, Stir-fried Lala ( a type of clam), Som Tam (Papaya Salad) and 2 glass of juice, and all this come with THB700.(which I think is a bit steep!) The food taste good and we enjoyed it very much!

“Good food, good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Nice quick service, tasty food, good prices. Not the place to go for a posh meal out, but for good, authentic Thai dishes at reasonable restaurant prices, this was the place to go.
