I came here with 4 friends one evening to watch some sport that we knew they would be showing. It's a convenient location right opposite the pier, but due to this it makes it a little pricey. They offer Thai and western food, but I wouldn't recommend the Thai food because you can get the same meal around the corner... More

Kim, Thank you so much for your review and kind words. Yes sadly there is a price difference between us and a street vendor or a market stall. I'm sure you never tried our Thai food because you would have seen we use the best ingredients possible at the time. Please also doing forget the level of Service, rent, rates,... More

I came here for lunch, the staff was friendly and the place beautiful, unfortunately the salad with chicken breast was really poor and without seasoning. Probably here you will eat great burgers, but perhaps it is better to remove from the proposed menu the salad with chicken breast.

Visited here after a long day out at Angthong Marine Park and due to its close proximity to the pier it seemed the obvious choice. Our main reason for visiting was to watch the England v Australia rugby match which was on that afternoon and it was clear we had picked a great venue. Plenty of screens to choose from... More

It was good to see this local icon of cultural colonialism rebranded from The Harp, a Guinness serving Irish Bar, to The Hub Island Sports Cafe. From the outside it was reminiscent of the hideous Australiana pubs you'd find in larger better known tourist hotspots. Located on the beachfront side of Thongsala, The Hub is one of the first pub/cafes... More

If you're in need of a Thai food break, this is the spot to get your western food needs! I got a simple cheese burger and French fries and it hit the spot! I usually don't like mayo-based condiments but the special sauce they used on the burger was incredible! When they brought the food out, the fries were extremely... More

So, we researched thoroughly were we could rent scooters on the island, after hearing truly horrific stories about inflated costs and dishonest conduct. Again and again, Damien's name kept popping up in the TripAdvisor forums as a warm recommendation, so we decided to head to his place and give it a go. We were immediately greeted with a very warm...

Great burgers and friendly service, the closest to the ferry drop off as well! Grab a hangover cure if you are heading out after the Full Moon Party to fully recover!
