“A great breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My tip for this popular backpacking spot is that its almost deserted in the morning, and that's a good time to be there. We had the place almost to ourselves from 9 til 11am and had a nice leisurely breakfast stretched out on the deck overlooking the Nam Khan watching fishermen setting nets in the river in front. A good selection of reasonably priced breakfast dishes including really tasty juices, and great service since we were some of the few guests in the place. We also had our choice of some nice shady spots to sit under trees and awnings as the day warmed up. A real gem.

“Great place to chill out but maybe not for food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

Amazing location and place. You can chill out, enjoy the surroundings, drinks and games. Food is not the greatest but it's not bad. Very comfortable and welcoming place with a great vibe to it. Definitely a place you should visit :-)

“Crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Crowded with youngsters at late night, though a fantastic setting. Try visiting early in the evening?!
