Walked past the bamboo restaurant on our first night in Ao Nang and it compared to the other 20 restaurants on that street seemed busy, after a quick browse at the menu, we decided to have dinner in there. The owner was very embarrased to turn us away, as they were full that night. We were visiting ao nang in september, which is low season, so obviously having the restaurant full at the time, was a great sign. Ended up going back the next evening, to try it out and we were able to get a table. And now i know why it was that busy compared to the other restaurants. The food is to die for, fresh fish and seafood was to die for. The food was well presented (dont find that a lot), decent portion size and price and DELICIOUS. The owner very welcoming and the staff friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Ao Nang.

We are from the UK & stayed for a week in Ao Nang at the Golden Beach Resort. The food at the hotel is somewhat expensive for Thailand and we was advised to visit the Bamboo restaurant just up from McDonalds on the opposite side of the road. The food is really delicious and they have an extremely large menu to choose from. The food is delivered quickly and as ordered. The staff are exceptionally friendly and we have not had a bad meal there yet (we have eaten there 5 times now). Best of all, they are cheaper than anywhere in Ao Nang town & would recommend this place for any westerner to visit!!

We were looking for an restaurant with good lokal food and fish BBQ. At the entrance at the restaurant 'Bamboo' welcomed us the Manager very charming (not as annoying as some other) and offered us the catch of the day. It was so fresh, the squid was just catched and alive. We ordered curry crab, tiger prawns with garlic and squid garlic pepper. It was just delicous and not too spicy.

Dining at Bam Boo Seafood restaurant really ruined our first night at Ao Nang. Their man at the door is very good at talking, convinced us to have our dinner there. Showed how fresh the seafood was and told that others will just rip us off, other places will charge us 600-800 for seafood, but they won´t do that, they are honest and we´ll get the best seafood experience in Thailand. We wanted him to tell the price before eating but he pushed us to the table to sit down, talked and talked and we trusted him because he told us they won´t rip us off and won´t charge over 800. Finally, check was for 1380 THB!

On top of everything, drinks arrived to the table after food and we had to order drinks twice cause they forgot at first time. How long it takes to bring bottle of water and a juice? We were told that prepairing food takes at least 40min but it was ready in 15 minutes. So I think they did not cook the fish and prawns we had chosen. The food was very poor, not tasty at all. Prawns were superdry and tasteless not mentioning the fish we had big hopes on. Told waiter this but only respond was "I´ll tell the kitchen to cook bit less next time". We paid so much for this and food was very bad, that made us unhappy and that is why I´m sharing my excperience.

Ofcourse we were stupid, we did not ask the price before we sat down. Not traveling on a very small budget, but riping off and paying that much for terrible food is not fair. We thought that for this money we could have dinner for 3 times at least.

We walked past that place after an hour and the same guy asked us how we enjoyed their delicious seafood. After hearing our feedback he told us it was our fault we didn´t get back to him. If there are 10 waiters/waitresses why we have to go and look for him? Our mood was already bad so we just wanted to leave that "restaurant".

Overall very bad experience.
