Very friendly and patient service. Happy to allow mix across the menu with no fuss. I wanted to try baracudda but cooked thai style spices deep fried which was not on the menu. No problem and it was devine. Next evening I had same fish but with red curry sauce and steamed rice. Wonderful! Rest of the crew also loved it and one of them is very fussy with steaks but they delivered. Can't recommend it enough.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel (Rockys) and it was great. Every cuisine you could ask for and right in the middle of Lamai so you can enjoy the markets and nightlife afterwards. Very clean and reasonable. Thoroughly recommend.

“Safe bet for family”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

No worries at all, food, variety, service, ambience, price (unless you are too tight). Would like to give a special mention to the quality of the toilets, my son is always apprehensive visiting by himself so I went with him, gave each other a Hi5 and a laugh.

“Very nice restaurant”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

After 4 dinners in different restaurants we were recommended this one by both local hotel staff and friends with long time stays. And with no doubt the quality of service and food were higher than the other places in the area. The kids got their main course in the same time as the adult got their starters, and this means a lot when you bring a 3 year old. This timing was perfect all the way during our visit and this is not so common. The price level is OK, if you're not looking for budget places.
