“Good food with excess of crowd!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

So this place is like a typical outdoor sitting restaurants that throng the entire Chaweng strip...
I read reviews of this place here and decided to take the plunge...
Was not disappointed...but just a note...It's was not a negative experience of me because I never went there with an idea of having "my space" while dining...
The place was extremely crowded and depending on number of people waiting outside...the waiters were picking up folding tables and plastic chairs and plaing theme between the tables where people were sitting...consequently, there was virtually no space to move around...I was carrying my bag and kept it under my chair for people were stepping on it!!!that was bit of a shock to me as I could see some people were not comfortable dining and sitting extremely close to strangers!!!

Food: good..I like the food there... spaghetti with chicken in white sauce and mozzarella was powdered and given in a salt & pepper can..."eat as much as you like"...
Price for beer and others drinks was also reasonable and most importantly...clean toilets!! It became important after walking for 3/ 4 hours on Chaweng strip!! :)

Service...nothing outstanding about it and nothing bad either...overall..smiling faces putting food on your table as quickly as possible...waiting time was not much either...

“Slow service poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Visited here after reading positive reviews and was left disappointed. The restaurant was not empty but not particularly busy for the amount of staff working. However service was slow and poor.

We shared a starter of chicken satay and this was the best food of the evening, however we were not given plates or cutlery. I had phad Thai which was overlooked and the noodles tasted rubbery. The other dish was pork with garlic and chilli and this was best described as ordinary.

The drinks a coconut shake and a piña colada cocktail were nice.

We need to ask twice for the bill.

We will not be returning during our holiday as there are many other restaurants to chose. We did not think that this restaurant lived up its reviews.

This is a very popular restaurant for Thai food and steaks etc the red and green curry's are particularly good. It's ate on abusy corner location so good for people watching while you eat.

“Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Had the Panang Curry, it was great. Not that cheap, but average for here. Good, fast service. Good, comfortable setting. I would definitely recommend the place, and eat there again.
