I hate reviewing places negatively - note I have only a few reviews, all others 5/5 (usually because I thought the place deserved more business). We were the only diners around 6 PM after getting a ride from the Conrad up the hill. This was our third week in Thailand and we have eaten the gamut from food carts, streetside "restaurants" and a Thai fine dining restaurant in Jahn. After all the gushing reviews about Green Talay we decided to try it. The service was friendly, but after attempting to order 3 different drinks with no luck in supply (iced coffee, mojito, thai-style iced tea), I just stuck with bottled water. I know we are in the low season, but given the prices of the restaurant (2-3x what we've paid for thai food in thailand), I expected them to have at least one of these options. The food menu was quite extensive for a Thai place. I had a duck green curry, which was on par with most green curries I've had in Thailand, but at 220 baht, nearly double the duck red curry had on the other side of the island (equally good). My wife ordered duck and asparagus, which literally ended up being stir fried duck and asparagus with maybe a small amount of fish sauce. Very limited flavor. She said she'd had a more flavored version before in the US, but regardless this was very average. When we asked for the typical Thai spice cart - dried chili, vinegar, sugar, pepper sauce - or some variant, the only thing brought was fish sauce with chili. Not bad, but just seemed strange to us in that usually in Thailand we were given the accessory spices without even asking or they were sitting at the table when we arrived. All said, maybe this was an off night. Complaining about the prices is a little tedious when it's only $2-5 US different, but frankly it's irritating knowing we've gotten consistently equal or better Thai food for much cheaper in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Samui and Koh Tao.
