“Okay, nothing special and check your bill!!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The two of us went there tonight 23rd June. We each chose a fish each at 200 baht a fish. Also had an appetiser of spring rolls between us, plus a Heineken and two watermelon juices. The spring rolls standard Aussie takeaway style, nothing exceptional. Ditto the fish; pretty ordinary. Service was pleasant, but when I looked at the bill we had been charged for 4 fish meals NOT 2 plus a Singha we did NOT order, but only one watermelon juice instead of two. When I pointed out the errors the second bill presented was almost right, but still only one watermelon juice charged. I paid the correct amount but the experience did make me think about all the times I have not checked the bill. CHECK YOUR BILL HERE.

“Just Ok”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Busy place my meal was alright orders were mixed up our granddaughter had to wait nearly half an our for her meal, not good. Some had steaks that were over cooked and very salty. I really wonder why these places are so popular maybe because it's cheap compared to what they get at home.

“Late lunch + late service level.”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We stopped in here for late lunch one afternoon, at that time we were the only ones in the restaurant.. about the same time as they setup the seafood for the evening meals.

Despite being the only ones in the restaurant service was still pretty slow, even when getting the bill at the end we seemed to have to wait for a significant amount of time.

The food we had was only average and given the many restaurant options in Karon / Kata (we had a bike) probably would not have gone back.

“Party In My Mouth”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Great experience.

We ate here a few nights in a row. We had a few of the traditional Thai dishes and loved each one.

The staff are friendly, the service is quick, the food is served hot, it tastes great and our meal of 4 dishes with 2 drinks came to about $13(USD)

What more could you ask for. This place is definitely worth checking out.

Highly recommend the Pad Thai for a taste of the real deal.

“Incredible Food ....Service Lacked”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We actually were returning to eat at red onion but it happened to be closed for renovations. I had heard about this restaurant down the street so my family decided to try it. The food was incredible...we have been searching for yellow curry and we found it! We ordered beef green curry, chicken yellow curry, pad thai, chicken patay, veggie spring rolls, ginger beef and drinks and it all came for $1100baht. Sooo cheap and worth every penny. The service however was very slow and we were flagging down for service every time. As we are on holidays and on thai time we didn't let it bother us and enjoyed the two hour lunch. Also they have free internet and computers for customers to use. My family decided that they enjoyed this restaurant more than red onion. This restaurant was more in open spaced, more airey, more comfortable and food incredible. They have a unisex bathroom to use if needed...clean.
