The restaurant is really nice and cozy and the staff are kind and competent. I felt 100% comfortable with picking my dinner from their recommendations and tips. The food was lovely. I tried their "vegarian lamb" and it was easily one of the best vegetarian food I've ever eaten on a restaurant. This place is really a must if you're... More

We went there twice in a week to have their amazing falafel + hummus plate. Before the meal arrives we were presented with complimentary entrées: plum tomatoes with garlic and crispy nut garnish. After our meal we were treated to a small sliced fruit and chocolate mint sweets. The German owner (?) was fantastic in service and answering questions. We... More

We only stopped off to get a single serving of ice cream for our little boy. We had already eaten elsewhere. However, the owner was so welcoming and charming with his own brand of dry sense of humor. WE must have stayed for almost 2 hours enjoying a few glasses of wine, ice cream to die for presented like an... More

We had a meal here the night my fiancé and I got engaged. The service was absolutely stellar! The owner could not have been kinder or more attentive. The menu is humongous, with everything from traditional Thai curries and noodles to crocodile dishes to steak and fries.

A fantastic evening meal at rice paddy. The food just kept flowing and all was absolutely delicious. The restaurant was full to the brim, we turned up with 2 extra guests in addition to our booking and they happily accommodated us. A must restaurant to visit, but be sure to book.

There aren't enough good things to say about Rice Paddy. The food vastly exceeded our expectations. We've been traveling around Thailand for the last year and a half, having eaten everything from street food to the high end restaurants. This is the best Thai food we've had yet! The quality ingredients and authentic flavors combine for an unmatched experience. The... More

We had to book to go here which I find a bit unusual! But the restaurant was practically empty at 8.30 and no more customers. Food not out of the ordinary, manager very attentive and passionate about his dishes which can be a bit over powering. Bit more pricey compared to other places on the island with the same food
