“Looks good in a nice location but don't be fooled.”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Popped in for lunch as the location overlooking the beach was fine as were the neatly set out tables all with pristine sun shades. However, the service was slow and the staff, apart from the trainees were not interested in service. We ordered a beer and Diet Coke, no great problem, but when we came to order the drinks again, along with 2 Thai Green Curries then it all fell apart. Despite the fact that there were only two tables occupied by customers we waited about ten minutes for the drinks. When they arrived there was one beer and one regular Coke which was already in the glass presumably from the draught barrel. We explained that we wanted Diet Coke (which came in a can) the waitress was adamant that we ordered regular Coke despite the fact that the original can was still on the table. It was only after the intervention of other staff that she relented and disappeared to find a can of Diet Coke. I wanted to leave at this stage however my sweet natured wife wanted to stay. The Thai Green Curry turned up and was at best OK. Having visiting Thailand for 15 years I can tell a good curry from a bad one. This wasn't bad but it seems that it was made forpeople who do not like an authentic Thai Curry.
Don't be fooled by looks, unless you want a sandwich or a burger and slow service then eat elsewhere.

“Great Thai foods and seafoods”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

I normally stayed in this place (Golden beach Resort) and ate in this restaurant more than 10+ times in passed few years.The food is very good here.I can say its a authentic Thai taste.

The service is always the same >> Slow.But food is good and table is facing ao nang beach which quite nice.

Recommenced dish >> Bake rice with pineapple / steam or fried fish/ flat rice noolde fried with soy sauce and all curry dishes.

I agree with comments below about staff ability to understand English...easy way to order just point it on menu that you like ...if want a special request just say bring me a manager.

“Too slow service, no English skills and mediocre food”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

We went there with our children aged 3 and 5 after a day at Railay Beach. The location is fantastic, and so is the view. It looked nice, so we tried it for dinner.

The supervisor came to take drink order, and had big problems in understanding our English. No wonder: "small Singha, large Singha and a bottle of water" are probably not very common here... He had to send his colleague to make sure he understood us right, and he did. The never heard us order fruit smoothie 3 times, so we waited an hour for it...

Food was ok, but we got so fed up from waiting and never getting what we wanted.

Total price for 4 persons: 861 THB (30 USD)

“Very nice location, food was OK, service friendly”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

We went to Thai Thai on our first "going out" to Ao Nang. Why? Because it simply is on the great location by the beach (looking to sea, follow beach road left, when you come to the road turn left - there is traffic police booth) you just go straight ahead and still follow the beach) and is away from all those other shops & "Italian" restaurants and people bothering you to buy a dress or come eat or....

We have been serviced very fast and got what we ordered very soon. Food was OK, prices were also OK and all in all it was really nice to take a break from busy Ao Nang.

I do not know how it looks on the inside so stick to the garden on nice weather.
