The foods here were OK but what we don't like about this place was music that so loud so we don't feel relax. There we're some fire show that was excitement.

Stopped here for some Thai food. Generally tasty. Service good, friendly and quick( ish). Good fish choices if that's your thing. Not far from the shore line. Reasonably clean.

The food is very typical of the restaurants on Sai Kaew. You choose the dish, they grill it for you, and deliver it. It's fresh, tasty, but it's not what you'd call gourmet. Pick one of the seafood options, and you can't go wrong. What makes this place stand out is the fire dancers. Unlike the fire dancers you find... More

We didn't actually eat in this place but we had a few cocktails and watched the fire show. It was absolutely amazing, on top of crazy tricks they involve the crowd and you get to join in fire limbo and fire rope jumping! Definitely worth a visit!

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.
