As this restaurant seemed to be popular with reviewers we thought we would try it as it was next to our hotel. Due to the fact they offer cooking classes we assumed the food would be good. In fairness, my wife's seafood curry was good but I asked for BBQ snapper fish and when I saw it looking pasty and... More

Apart from the nice atmosphere on the beach, there is nothing outstanding at this restaurant. Foods tasted bland and portions small given the prices. They didn't even know how to cook delicious food. How could they have a cooking school then? Foods here are not authentic but meant for foreign tourists.

Amazing! Their service is exexcellent as they even picked us up and dropped us back at our hotel! Would definitely recommend... More

A favourite of ours three years ago and just as good as ever today. Delicious food and friendly service. However, they do get busy at times and the service can get a little bit touch and go. That said, we've never had a bad experience ourselves and had many wonderful evenings here.

After reading other reviews, I had high hopes. Very average and disappointing. My husband and I had a pad sayu and a whole fish. Really meh and not on par with expectations. Sorry, fellow Trip Advisors, you let us down.

We decided to try Roi Thai purely because it's also a cooking school. The fact is also seems popular seemed to also indicate they're doing something right. We had massuman curry and seafood Penang curry, both were delicious. Service is a little hit and miss, probably because it's so popular - sometimes it was hard to attract a servers' attention,...

Had lunch and 2 dinners here this week.Very well prepared and presented food.Cookery school here so standard high. Dinner was really good on the beach but cooler inside for lunch. Papaya salad, prawn pad Thai and massaman curry particularly good. Good value and nice friendly service.Great experience.

Great night with good food on the beach or in the restaurant. Thai reggae band playing live music and some fire shows from the staff on the beach. Staff were lovely and all in all had a great night.

We enjoyed a lovely meal in the scenic surroundings on the beach by candle light. The food was superb, if you are in this area give this place a try.
