“Very average Thai”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We had dinner here with two friends on the Saturday during the Easter Break. Booked a table and were told by the owner that a surcharge of $10 would be levied because of the public holiday. I told him that the Saturday was not a public holiday and therefore no charge should apply. After much discussion he agreed and wrote next to our name "no surcharge".

Meal was just average, this always seems to be the case when restaurants are next to very good water views, the food takes second place. It seemed to lack flavour and I agree with a previous reviewer that food courts serve better than we had that Saturday night. Will not be returning, there are plenty of thai restaurants in the area to try.

“Beautiful setting average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

We have been to this restaurant a few times for the entertainment on a Friday which is very good, they have a chap playing guitar and singing and the sunsets and view are gorgeous. Food average tho and there is better Thai close by but the atmosphere is really nice here, shame they can't up the quality of their food and we have tried quite a few different dishes on their menu, they are very heavy handed with the fish sauce they seem to pile Into everything, Service also not very good, pity because we would go back

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We had takeaway for dinner from here last night. When we went to pick up our order the staff were very friendly, the restaurant was full (a good sign!) and our food ended up being delicious. Much better than our first experience, the restaurant is now under new management and we wouldn't hesitate to dine in next time we're in the mood for Thai.
