We ate here twice whilst in Chaweng. Set on the main strip. Lots to choose from on the menu. Happy hour cocktails only 90 baht. Very nice they were too! Tried steaks, ribs, half roast chicken, and cheeseburgers. Good size portions, all served piping hot. Great little place.

This is a friendly welcoming place with reasonable prices and good food. Service is just great. If you like sport, could not be a better choice. A must-go-to for just a drink or a meal.
