“Mediocre Food and Service”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Tried this restaurant as a group of nine and we were all very disappointed with both the service and food.
The wait staff were more interested in chatting than serving the customers.
When the food finally arrived after a substantial wait, some of the dishes were served cold.
One dish was forgotten, and produced when we asked twice.
No apology or excuse.
There are a number of restaurants in the area if a much better quality and service level.

“Good spot for sunset dinner”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

Good food, friendly service, but the
best part is location. It's right on the beach for great sunset viewing. It's also calmer and quieter than most. It's away from the hustler and bustled of most of Karon as are it's neighbors. The coconut soup was tasty.

I have been to this restaurant several times and the food has always been great, my wife and daughter loved the cocktails and location to the beach is great with sunsets to die for.

“Value 4 money”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Chicken satay was great. Little English spoken but they tried to understand. The prawn dish we ordered did not seem to be exactly as the menu described ...
