We decided to try out this quite cheap restaurant. The green curry soup is very nice. Unfortunately arrived at peak hour and had to wait for food a lot. Overall better than the polished locations near by. If you are staying close worth a try.

Great food at this small Thai restaurant. We both had Currys and they were excellent. Don't expect amazing service but the food makes up for it!

Easy going restaurant that is reasonable priced. Not necessarily a family place for later in the evening. Located at the water's edge. If going for dinner try to make sure you have some mosquito repellent with you as they can become quite pesky. The restaurant...More

Both times I was there you could walk in with 30 people and they would be able to handle it. Obviously a heads up is nice but I wouldn't worry about it too much. Plenty of space there. And the cooks are fast
