This place is swamped with flies! Apart from the decor, the food is nothing to shout about. I played it safe and ordered phad thai, minced pork omelette, and stirred fried morning glory in preserved soya bean sauce. I would think this is the most basic of thai food, and any tom dick or harry would be able to get it right. No. This place is a failure of anything resembling thai cuisine.

Came here for dinner. Between the 2 of us, we ordered a lobster, a whole red snapper, and some king prawns. Sadly no crabs that day as would have ordered that as well if available. All seafood was cooked on the barbeque. The seafood was very fresh, and cooked perfectly. Could taste the sweetness, and not dry. The ambience is so-so though. But for the food, I would come and eat at this restaurant again.

Although it looks rather like a typical tourist trap, the food is awesome, especially the choice. Service very nice. If you get a table on the balcony, even better. The inside is not so nice, feels a little bit like a waiting hall

So when a customer tells you that your food is frozen in the middle what do you do??? Apparently nothing. Food was average but service was worse
