“Seafood in Pattaya”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

The location is superb, in line with competing places next to it. Tanklay has better thai food. It is a the beginning of walking street, city side. Maybe not the right spot for kids over dinner.
Staff is nice and polite and can speak English. Service may be slow as there are too few of them to cater for a rather large place.
The food is very good and well priced. The fried rice was not very good. Avoid fried food.
Tiger prawns and lobsters are excellent albeit rather expensive.
You will spend for 2 in excess of 1500 thb.
Worth going to have dinner looking at the sea.

“Poor Service, Good Location”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Went to this restaurant with friends, with high hopes of being wowed by food and service. The place is huge with lots of tables set in an open air, with a balmy feel of sea breeze and grilled seafood aroma. They have a wide selection of Thai food, there is proper lighting, good decor and the overall condition of the place is very well kept. The disappointment came when one of their lady captain waiters approached our table in an unwelcoming bearing. She asked for our orders in a rude way, was very impatient to explain the menu and when one of my friends only ordered a fruit platter and a shake for herself, the captain sarcastically asked 'And then, no food for you?" We were all shocked with her behavior. As a fourth time visitor to Thailand, it's the first time I've encountered that kind of service. Food tasted average in general and before the we finished, we saw a rat running across our table to the next. Will not return.

“Great seafood and excellent service”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

What a great place to enjoy a lovely evening by the water and munching away some juicy crabs! The staff are really competent and efficient. We went back there two nights in a row.

“Pricey Restaurant with large King lobster and jumbo tiger shrimp”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Service was excellent. Waiter clamps when food comes out. Lobster a bit over cooked. Rice and salad good. Tiger shrimp was cooked right. 50-100USD per plate so very pricey. Eat on pier and it might be a bit smelly for normal people.
