The food here is amazing. They have a vegetarian menu as well. Thai fusion. Everything was amazing. From the duck red curry dumplings to the chicken pie. Priced reasonably. And the drink menu. Very entertaining. Small place try and make a reservation it is worth the trip

Upon being comfortably seated, we were offered a selection of hand towels, mosquito sprays and hand disinfectant (a VERY welcome touch after a hot day of traveling around the island). The menu is very unique - some interesting twists on classical thai cuisine, presented beautifully. The standard menu is complimented by black boards of special starter and main course options....

This place is set right on a main road but the food and quirky decor more than make up for it. Great attention to detail in the service and the food presentation. The owner mentioned that the portions were generous so we had 3 starters between 2 which was perfect. The standout dish was the chicken green curry pie, yes... More

The restaurant was recommended by the Anantara hotel manager. I went there twice for dinner and the food was phenomenal ! I love the traditional Thai food but this restaurant put a twist to it which made it so unique and took it to the next level. All of their dishes are absolutely divine. A must try is their chicken...

While this restaurant may not boast a beachfront property or view, it serves what is inarguably some of the best Thai food I have ever had. FOR REAL. The food here is clearly prepared with so much love and care. The owner is a lovely man who cares deeply about his customer's enjoyment and is obviously super passionate about his... More

Caffe 69 has the vibe of a "swingers club", colorful and shiny, the food is good and well priced. And yet, something is missing taste wise to make this place shine.
