Great location on the beach and offering an extensive and varied menu. The only change from last year - sand has been replaced by paving. Meals are delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed the crab soup and stir fried beef washed down with the local cold beer. It's not fine dining service, just excellent service from a varied and motley collection... More

Spent four nights in Patong...hated every minute aside from this place. Great location, authentic Thai food and BBQ all at very reasonable prices. Staff are friendly and efficient. Eat here and not in the over priced s/holes on Bangla and nearby. Fully recommend it.

As the title suggests this restaurant has the most stunning views as you literally eat on the sand overlooking Patong beach. We actually dined here on our last visit to Patong and couldn't wait to return. Staff are very attentive and service is prompt. The food was delicious, fresh and cheap. We all ate Thai dishes however there are plenty... More

Picture this: sitting on the beach with the sun setting and the sea breeze cooling you slightly as you sip cold drinks and dine on amazing Thai and Western dishes! Awesome prices! Friendly staff that aim to please! All this and fireworks too! Couldn't want more!

We returned here after first coming in 2012 just to have their garlic pepper crab. We were a little disappointed crabs were very small this time and not as good as other places we had eaten in Patong. Nice location and we watched the sunset from our table, staff are really helpful and friendly. Would suggest bringing bug spray for... More

Plastic tables and chairs at the northern end of Patong beach next to Loma park.It might not be for everyone but we like the be achy feel of this restaurant. Food is always great. Beer is always ice cold and priced well. Great view over the ocean at sunset.

Good authentic Thai food on the beach - just like everyone else said. Some tables and chairs are adjacent to the beach on concrete pad, others right on the sand. Clustered in with another place, so look for the pink chairs. Google address is wrong! Restaurant is a few meters north of the Maximum Muay Thai Combat Center, which is... More

As per the title. Was very surprised to find the same prices and taste than in other thai restaurants but right on the beach. Must do in Patong.

What more could you ask for? Beach view. Sound of the ocean. Excellent and prompt service. Friendly staff. Good white wine. Excellent green chicken curry. Fried rice. Prawns with basil. Delicious. Reasonably priced. Have dined here every year and will return again.

Only a short stroll along Patong beach to where you are able to eat the most delicious Thai or Western food whilst watching the sunset. Happy hour cocktails and the cheapest three course meal you could have.
