We've visited Blue Manao many times since 2010 and never been disappointed. Very good thai food, excellent fish (especially the 'sole'), excellent service and good company.

Lovely traditional style thai food very well presented and a very good price. I came here with my partner and we came back again the food was that good. Very very tasty and cooked how spicy you want it. Clean and tidy and right on the street to watch the world go by. I would definitely visit again.

After reading positive reviews, we decided to try it out. This was unfortunately not a good decision. We ordered the yellow prawn curry, seafood pad Thai and calamari to find out how terribly bland each dish was. Obviously heavily adapted to the boring palate of an average Western tourist. Very unfortunate since Thailand is renowned for its cuisine, don't let... More

Another rainy day in Kamala so decided to indulge at the Blue Manao. Friendly, cheerful staff, unobtrusive but there when needed. Had my daily chilled Chang, for a non beer drinker I'm getting hooked. Stir fried vegetables with pork scored full marks as did my wife's chicken soup. Total cost for drinks, meals and extras, B360 or $14 approx. Just... More

We ate here at approx 8pm on a Thurs night with two teenagers. There's a bar in one corner which is where the noise was coming from. Two European men were extremely drunk and loud, but were continuing to be served alcohol (is there no responsible service of alcohol policy here?) They had what appeared to be escorts (or local...

We stumbled on this place when going for a walk from our hotel with kids. It was first day in Thailand and kids and us very tired from flight. Id remembered the name from TA so we went in for dinner. So glad we did! Super quick service, fabulous food and not too spicy for the kids. We ordered the... More

Kamala Beach at lunchtimes is just like a ghost town with so many restaurants closed. We came to Blue Manoa based on trip advisor reviews. The restaurant was open with no customers. Not always a guide but a little concerning. Service was very good and efficient from the young guy there. Beer was cold! We had Glass Noodle Seafood Salad,... More

Pick some fresh fish/seafood and have them charcoal grill it. I also recommend the rice dish prepared in a pineapple.

Visited here twice while staying in Kamala. My husband and I love spicy food and that is what you get if you ask for it at this restaurant. Food was very tasty with large portions, staff were very attentive and service quick. Would definitely recommend this place if you find yourself in the Kamala area.
