The steaks and ribs are really good here and at reasonable prices. They also do Thai and seafood but the steaks here are "the business"

Stopped in for a bite to eat on the way back to the hotel and wasn't disappointed, but then I knew it would be good, as the owner, Eric owns the hotel we were staying in, and the food was top notch there. Go for the Steak or Ribs, bloody great!

Ate here 3 times during our 4 day stay. Other half wanted ribs and steak, which was thoroughly enjoyed. I had Thai food, which was also very good. No hassle from the street to come in, good service from the staff.

I had the all u can eat ribs which were very authentic and well cooked in a proper bbq smoker which is why we tried in the first place. The Thai shrimp salad was spicy and authentic too. The only improvement I can suggest would be the lack of interest one of the male staff showed even though it was... More

I recommend go to this restaurant if you like smoked ribs. For 399 baht about $16 NZ, you get ribs on the rack till you can't eat any more, a salad bar, mashed potato, corn, baked beans....I recommend just eat the ribs, mmm mmmm...

We ate dinner here and it was good. A little more expensive than some of the other places but was clean and had a good variety of food. The ribs were very good. Recommended.
