Their thai food isn'tgreat but if you stick to the local food you can't go wrong and for the... More

We stayed in the bungalows for 3 nights and ate here twice in the evening. Breakfast was simple yet tasty and bbq snapper at night was fresh and delicious! Cool friendly staff who were dj-ing in the background most nights so nice to sit, relax, watch the sea and have a few drinks. It's away from busy touristy port area... More

My bf got Mie Goreng and capuccino. Everything was delicious. And if you want to use the wifi ask... More

We visited Gili Air for a day trip and after we had ridden around on push bikes for a while we wanted somewhere to kick back, eat, drink, swim in the sea and relax. That is exactly what we got. The food was delicious, the beer was cold, the wifi was strong, the vibe was chilled. Lovely afternoon spent relaxing... More

I saw a few good opinion but I don't recommend this restaurant. The food (tom yum, tom kha) it was terrible. Bad taste and watery. All we had diarrhea after supper :( Service was very poor.

Nice restaurant but nothing special. I won't say it was "waaaw". We had a pad thai and a grilled fish. Nothing incredible. The price are pretty cheap.

We found this restaurant when walking around the island. Its located in a quiet area. Coconut juice and pineapple juice were amazing. The food was fine.

We went there for lunch. The food is reasonably priced but the quality is average or below. pad Thai was just boring. The pancake was good tho. although I already expected it, the waiters were really trying hard to show how much they don't like to work. Combine average food with unmotivated personal.. There are much better choices on gili... More
