A bit of a treck up a steep hill or the steps to the actual entrance, but so worth it. This has to be the most beautiful restaurant I have ever seen in Thailand (or anywhere else, come to that). As another reviewer said, "make sure to take your camera as the place is absolutely stunning". The staff were very... More

We asked if it was on to have just dessert, as it was around 21:30. They said it was fine. So we climbed the steep hill. We took a cocktail, a sundae, and crêpe lemon. We had a good view over the Kata Beach area. They were considerate to us even though they were closing up shop for that night.... More

One of the pricier restaurants in the area. Based on TA reviews we decided go visit for a special meal. Sadly, the curry was a thin flavour-less soup. The fried rice was obviously made with a "Magi" sauce or similar and lacking in any freshness. The drinks were full of pre-mix ingredients, tasting of chemicals and undrinkable. As a person... More

We ate here 3 evenings out of 12. It would have been more but we felt we should check out a few more places as well and be a bit adventurous. This was by far the best restaurant we experienced on our holiday. Lovely authentic Thai food in a fabulous environment. Staff were fantastic and the service was excellent. This... More

Like the title mentions, the look and feel of this restaurant is absolutely stunning. I only expected to see a bit more of the bay of Kata but that is not the case. The food is not the best I've had this holiday, but certainly it was very tasty, We ordered about 6 dishes and all were very well made.... More

Out the mess of the seaside, just around the corner of the main road of Kata, this place is something beautiful for the eyes. It seems like you enter a Buddhist temple with the only difference you are having a perfect Thai dinner. Food is nice and the staff is gentle and quick to serve. Just one negative point: skip...

We had this large restaurant to ourselves, and I was worried we had made a mistake, but I was tired and had climbed quite a few steps, so we stayed. The meal was fresh, well-presented and tasty. I particularly enjoyed the prawn cocktail. The décor was attractive, the service efficient and it was good to be above street level, although... More

The view up on the hill is nice, the food is as it should be. The price is fair. We had a fried rice with crabmeat, crab with curry and coconut milk, and a fried squid, all very tasty. The service is very good, the decorations are beautiful. It is very calm and completely different from the other restaurants in... More

The decor is a mix between Chinese and Thai. We ordered the seafood set with the lobster. The portion is huge. It's delicious. They let us choose different ways to cook the seafood. It's not cheap. But it's a good value for what you get. The food is kind of mild and not spicy.
