From the restaurant room you have a direct view on the kitchen, which could be a disadvantage in some other places ! But here it is... More

Went there twice and on each occasion there were ups and downs. We visited in low season (June) so it was almost empty- quick and good service. The staff were friendly and helpful. I have mixed feelings about the food. Fresh green papaya salad is very good, well seasoned and the portions were very generous on both occasions- thumbs up... More

We visited this restaurant almost every day whilst staying at the nearby Layana Resort. Out if the Layana to the main road and turn left, then walk for 500m. Always the busiest restaurant with brilliant food and frequented by Thais and tourists. This place has a great easy vibe, lots of smiles and food quality to die for.

We really like this restaurant it serves good local Thai food as well as Western food but this time they had changed their chairs to large bamboo chairs and they were so uncomfortable that we couldn't wait to finish our meal which was a real shame. The food we had was good but probably not as good as it used... More

I've eaten here about 5 times over a week, partly because it was close to my hotel but mainly because the food is really tasty! spicy big noodles with crispy pork being one of my favourites as well as the seafood dishes. Also never go away feeling hungry. Considering a lot of the thai food is around 80 baht it's... More
