We have eaten three times and it always was good. The A la Carte menu and the price was excellent. Probably the best restaurant in Kata Beach.

A bit pricy but excellent dishes in a gorgeous setting of teak wood, and water flowing, with table cloths and candles.

Two of our group had finger food but no water bowls were provided and we had to ask twice for them and the restaurant was not... More

Nice place with great Thai Decor. Had Lunch, food was average, but the decor made up for it. The only issue with this restaurant I can see is it's open air environment, means no A/C. Can get pretty hot at times.

The orders arrived,... More

We stayed at the Sawasdee Village and therefore had a couple of dinners & breakfast at the Sawasdee Thai Cuisine. Very nice ambience similar to the Sawasdee & Barry Villa. Dinner's were really well prepared and tasty! Breakfast was also good with a continental spread. Very friendly and courteous staff!
