Rude scammers
Mar 2020 • Friends
Came here with friends had a few drinks enjoyed the live music until we had some mouthy loud scammer playing tricks with cards and want you to play the game connect 4 with him. In the beginning he says if you win you’ll get free shots and if he wins is nothing but he still brings you shots and you have to pay for it including one extra for him. So be careful ! ( there’s also his sister going around all bars a young girl with flower hair bands and mugging tourists off be aware she talks shi* when she says she’s studying and her parents a poor it’s all part of the show to mug you off and get your money )
So the guy at this bar won the game which he offered to play and brought us shots ( we had to pay for it fair play, even though the deal he said was different)
He’s mouthy, annoying too confident and he thinks he’s funny but he just comes across as rude and super mouthy... He does good tricks with cards which is enjoyable to watch but talks so much! He tries to talk bad things about other magicians saying that they do everything because they have money and everything is fake but what he does it’s all real which ruins the show as he talks too much !!
However worse part was when we got the bill. We were two couples and the bill was quite big so we just started checking the bill and discussing with each other! That magician/scammer got involved and listened to our whole conversation even though it was nothing to do with him. He started going on - oh you’re from England it cost more over there I know for fact your wait until you have your business you’ll want to make money. Like wtf? How rude, unprofessional, disgusting this is? First of all you should learn from England a good customer service then charge English prices. You do not get involved in customers conversation ! You do not shout on customers when they don’t even talk to you!
He got proper in our faces until his colleague came and tried to calmed him down even they got upset about his behaviour. Not even that before this happened he asked me to share his info on my blog !
Will never return to this bar even though it did had a good drinks and a nice singers but that one dodgy rude scammer ruined all night.
Service like that just shows how far the whole country is behind the customer service and polite manners. Rude, disrespectful, scammers. Be aware.

Incredibly expensive

60 baht for a small bottle of water and definitely not the best food in town. Really wouldn't suggest it

Threatened with police, disgusting behaviour and service
Jan 2018 • Family
I must admit to writing this review when angry and upset. My parents and I were heading for the next door Divers Inn, but we were attracted by the live singer (who was excellent). the offer of all fish for 249 tbh also drew us in. My father wanted fish, but the sea bass steak did not count as fish, but he ordered it anyway. We specifically asked if it was plain (no sauce) and whether there were any accompaniments to the 440tbh order. We were told it was plain and we needed to order veg separately.

After about 20 minutes, my food came out with my mums. My pasta was cold so I sent it back to be reheated. 10 minutes later my pasta came back with dads side order - mashed potato, served Luke warm. He asked for this to be reheated. Another 10 minutes passed and the fish came out in a sauce (no mash). We explained we had ordered plain fish and this needed to be returned. Another 15 minutes passed and dad finally had the tiniest piece of fish, served with veg. Straight away we said this was too small for the money and we wanted more fish or we would reduce the price paid.

When the bill arrived, we were charged full price for the fish (less a 15% discount on food offered to all customers). Incidentally I was charged 60bht for a small bottle of water, but this was my fault as it was not priced on the menu. We decided to reduce the final bill by 200bht to reflect the minuscule piece of fish and the cold food and the length of service (three of us ate at 3 different times).

I asked to see the manager to explain that we had reduced the bill to reflect our food experience. His first reaction was to say we ate it, so we had to pay. We said we were paying most of the bill, but not the full amount for the fish. He started shouting - you ate, you pay. I tried to explain that we tried to reject he fish as it was too small from the outset. He said all fish was this size in Thailand (other fish steaks we have purchased have been 4 times the size, for less money). The manager was butting up against me, threatening us with the police (which I was happy to involve them in), shouting at me and would not listen to our side of the argument.

I have never experienced such horrific, aggressive behaviour on all my visits to Thailand. The food service was terrible (long waits, cold food) . However This interaction with the aggressive, threatening manager has completely spoilt our night. We will never return to this venue.

Nice bar but not recommendable for dinner
Jan 2018 • Couples
We have ordered two courses - starter and main course and told this the waiter explicitly. They served all dishes the same time. We had only a small table for two so it was very uncomfortable with all the plates. They did not serve a sauce for the spring rolls so we asked for it. It came when we almost finished the spring rolls. Beer and cocktails are expensive, e.g. a small Chang is 100 Baht! I had vegetarian Pad Thai but it tastes very fishy. I like fish sauce, it was more like something was not really fresh. My husband's Panang Curry with chicken was very good but a very small portion (180 Baht).
Better go there to have a drink and listen to live music later at night.

False advertising.
Dec 2017 • Friends
We were 3 buddies that saw this amazing looking burger on a poster outside and decided to go in because of that. Turns out it was only for show and they couldn't make what they advertised outside *disappointed already*. We decided to give the place a try and ordered a bacon and cheese burger. When the food arrived for one of my friends, it was literally just bacon and cheese on a bun with the usual lettuce and tomato. The picture on the menu indicated that it should've been a beef patty + bacon and cheese with lettuce and tomato, this was fixed after we complained but i do not recommend going to this place as this place does not deliver on what they advertise.

This bar is good with friendly helpful staff. What really makes this bar is the band! A very talented bunch of musicians playing great music. The guitarist is phenomenal! If you go, request Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix! - it's an experience!
