I am a regular in Thailand and Kamala. This was a big surprise as we avoid touristy restaurants with normally high prices and little authentic. This was a real gem. Very testy, well presented and big portions Well done! Highly recommended

Chilling on kamala beach and popped in here for a snack. It is nice and relaxed and the service was fast and attentive. Nice beachy style music playing in the background and the spring rolls were delicious. I'd definitely visit again

Grilled chicken was good, but all other dishes were too salty, much more than all the beach front restaurants we visited. Service was a bit slow. Only recommend the grilled chicken. Grilled seafood maybe good too but we didn't try.
