Thai food is average was sufficient for a meal, I had chicken pad Thai and husband had messaman curry. Service was good.

I loved this restaurant for its great food. We visited it twice on our trip and were delighted both times. I love the way you get an orchid as decoration to your meal. Slightly further back from the beach, so you get great value.

Not chic restaurant,looks a bit shabby, but food was very tasty. I agree with the bad reviews about Thom Yam,it was just water with vegetables,but other dishes:Pad Thai,salad with roasted beef and vegetables were really good. Quality / price ratio is worthy.

Thank knagalina
