“Two nights in a row, happy to go for three!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Believe every positive review on this place, it really is the best food we have eaten in Karon. Very clean, very fresh and extremely delicious. It is hard to find as the map would have you walking around the other end of Karon as we did the first night. Just past the Movenpick hotel main entrance is where you will find it.

“Allusive elephant- what a find!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Was hard to find this little gem. What a find!
Amazing food. We went there today for lunch.
Had fried chilli snapper. Very spicy and delicious.
We also had some vegetables and garlic bread just to mix things up a bit.

Great food and service. We had trouble finding this restaurant but are glad we did as it was worth it.

“Great Thai food and hospitality”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Lunch of satay chicken, two rice dishes, pizza, two beers, two soft drink and two fruit smoothies. Fantastic fresh food and great service for under 600 baht. Went back for dinner tonight and just as good. A must when in Karon

“Excellent Thai food and large menu”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Wide selection of both Thai and western dishes. Their Thai food is skillfully cooked and well balanced. It is however clear they cater mainly to tourists because they went easy on both chili and nam pla (fish sauce) but despite this, the food is very authentic. Definitely worth a visit for anyone looking for a traditional well cooked Thai meal. If you don't know what to order, try the Larb Moo, it was to die for!

“Good thai food”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We went to the restaurant and was not disapointed. We got very good food and a lot of food. Not the best location, but maybe the best thai food in Karon. Very good spring rolls, chicken satay, panaeng and smooties.
