“This is where it is happening!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

We went in the middle of the afternoon and the place was already pumping. In comparison to all the other places on the strip they a wee bit cheaper, but expect to pay 10B more than the cheaper side of town.
Definitely worth a visit if you like lively places. Their food was tasty and service was efficient. Travellers seeking a quiet place to dine should give this one a miss.

“Simply awesome!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Liked the layout of the restaurant - close to the beach. The staffs were prompt and the service was swift. They have a very looong menu - european/thai/western styles.The food was freakin delicious - tried the beef/pork/chicken rices that is complimented along with the music and fire shows on the beach. Try the fresh sea food.

“Blight on the landscape.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

The only really good thing about this place is that it provides a throughfare to get to the beach and escape the main road of Chaweng and all its infinite tack. The bad thing is that you have to go through this place first and experience the pinnacle of tack. We did sit and have a drink. I wanted to try to understand why people like this kind of place. Well, there's lots of lights and very loud music, tvs with sports and western junk food and lagers and all the normal sugary drinks. Mostly western people go there and get all sugared and fattened up and then girate to rythmic beats like they do on their western high streets at home on the weekend. But the toilets are clean. They have about a thousand employees all wearing orange T'shirts. Some local Thai youth go there and give a fire show. Some tourists yelp at them. Most take out their phones and video them. If you like cheesy bars that blast out mindless electronic music and you want a hamburger of questionable nutritional value, this is your place. As I sat with my sugary chemical laden cider - what can I say, I had been craving cider and this was the only place I found it - I particularly appreciated the sea view with three billboards popping out of the water staring back at me. I think they were advertising the Ark Bar, I don't remember. I don't want to remember.

“Good place , good food!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We settled for a dinner in this restaurant and the food was very good. the value you will pay is definitely worth . The music is quite loud and my kids didn't liked it at all. The only downfall is the parking as you need to have a smaller transportation like motorbike to go inside.
