Awesome food, Generous portions!

We had our New Year's Eve dinner in this restaurant. The food was excellent. Garlic/Black pepper Prawns. Spicy Shrimp, and Cashew Chicken with veggies We ate here 4 times during our visit. Prices are very affordable compared to the main beach rd restaurants, and very flavorful. Well recommended

If you have 2 hours to spend waiting, if you want to eat something you didn't order and if you don't care if the employees and boss are incorrect: you can go there.

Visited this place for a quick lunch, ordered some spicy fried fish and deep fried fish. The meals were okay, fish was fresh. The bad thing is that sometimes the bad smells come from the street as the collectors are located in front of the entrance. Waiters are not very friendly but do their job okay.

There is a massive amount of choice on the menu, all of the Thai dishes sounded amazing especially the seafood. We had fried fish with vegetables (not much fish), crab fried rice (amazing!!!), duck with sweet basil (150tbh really good with plenty of duck) and egg noodles with chicken (good not especially exiting but I blame this on my bad...

We've just found this restaurant with a vast menu. It took me a whole Singha beer to get through the multiple pages of glorious wide ranging dishes. The seafood display outside is fresh and I could swear I saw the crayfish move! Packed with people I can assure you already that the meal will be divine :). The sign outside... More

We have tried their pizza, asianfood and pasta dishes. I really loved this place, not for the place itself but the food was one of the best we tried in our (so far) trip in Thailand.

Had dinner here and ordered a variety of thai dishes. It was very pleasant that they do not serve spice-less food like many other places in touristy areas. Their food was just spot on, The service was very friendly despite limited English. After the great food the bill was a pleasant thing too. We ordered a lot (including lots of... More
