We made a little detour on our way back from the beach and voila! There it was, The Royal Oriental Thai Restaurant.... More

The food is absolutely yummy, the service polite and attentive. A restaurant that stimulates the taste buds and makes you just wait for it to open. It has just opened for the season :)
