Horrific food - ordered chicken, I got bones, my friends were shocked. Tried to talk to staff about getting a different meal and they were argumentative and dismissive. Horrific service Really would not recommend.

This place fills up fast because of the nightly fire show. Lots of fresh seafood. Had the prawns with curry powder, very nice and perfectly cooked. Also tried the Tom khai soup which was really well balanced and nicely spicy. Reasonably priced and well worth it for the fire show.

The restaurant is nicely located on the beach. A lot of tables on the beach are inviting people to stay. Unfortunately it's invaded by Korean and Chinese travel groups. It's like on Mallorca in these dreaded places which are loud and uncomfortable, to stay polite.

Great place for locals. Americans not so much. 100's food choices and not clear what size portions are. Have to know how to order. Couples should order at least 4 dishes to get full. Menu's wore out and need replacing. Service great though and view is immaculate. Don't sit in front row near sand either.

In Thailand everything food wise is cheap. From the attached pictures you'll see the quality, which was excellent, and all including the show for approximately £20! I'll let the pictures do the talking. Highly recommend.

This serves mainly seafood bar-b-que. My platter was very good and the octopus excellent. The atmosphere is crowded with locals so go early for a seat to view the fire show. Outside is nice but crowded - inside is like a canteen. Family place really. Service is good

The fire show they do every night is extremely entertaining. They have a wide variety of BBQ on the menu snd beer towers. Make sure you find a seat before 8:00.

We ate here because of shisha and fire show. The fire show was excelent but shisha was too expensive. the food was really good and worth the money. It is not the cheapest or most expensive option but it is expensive for Thailand standards but it is worth it.

The quality of the food is ok, and the setting is great, but the service is slow, and some dishes was served almost instantly, while others were served 40 minutes later. Fairly priced. Fantastic fireshow.

Food is good, but we order ribs, vegetables in sauce, and tom Yum soup - 5 or 10 min later they give us a ribs, for vegetables we wait like 25 min... When we ask about this they finally give us the vegetables, but still we dont see the soup... So when it finally come we take it to go.... More
