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.

Wonderful decor with some amazing artefacts. Quite a few steps to climb but well worth it. Specialising in seafood, a good range at reasonable prices. Friendly and efficient staff.

We'd heard about the place from friends and got dropped off by our hotel. Probably for the best, because you could easily miss the place from the street - it's a little bit uphill. Solid Thai food. Much better than the MSG-saturated rubbish that we had eaten the night before closer to the beach. Worth the trip if you're staying... More

A very nice and cosy restaurant with a fantastic view from the upper part. The service was impeccable. There is a lot of dishes to choose from and for every taste I think. The food was ok, but nothing special and a little more expensive than in other places. I would gladly get back here just because of the view... More

First of all the location on trip advisor map is incorrect (unless there are two restaurants with the same name). We asked for fried rice with crab meat, we were served with prawns. Water bottle arrived already opened. Food was average. We finished few minutes after ten pm and waiters already were taking out all the other table cloths ready... More
