“Warm welcome and cheap eats.”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

This restaurant is right next to the Ramada Khao Lak...on the left as you walk to the beach.
It appears to be a family concern as parents appear to be the cooks and kids are the waiters! Their English is very good.

Bizarrely, this was one of the only "beach restaurants" where they did serve you the food in the order you want it! More often that not, you order starters and mains and they all come out and different times.
Food was great - very good value for money, too.

Recommended.

“Simple but nice”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We ate at this place a few times for lunch and dinner. Tasty,simple and easy. Food is fresh and served within 10 minutes of ordering. Very tasty shakes as well. Really nice to have your feet in the sand, watching the sun set or the waves lapping at the beach any time of the day.

“cheapest lunch you'll ever have”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We ate at Tonsons several times during a two week stay at the Ramada hotel next door. The food was excellent and incredibly cheap. Main courses were around 100 Baht which is roughly £2.50, some were even cheaper. The service was perhaps a little eccentric with the moody jeans wearing teenager being my favourite but you just can't really fault this place. a trick for those staying at the Ramada is to cut through immediately in front of the ocean view villas so you don't burn your feet on the sand.

“Ideal beach location”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stayed at the Ramada for 12 nights and visited ‘Tonson’ several times to watch the sunset over drinks and snacks. We usually ordered a cocktail, large beer (or two) and a couple of appetizers - the bill was in the region of £8 - £10.

It is the nearest beach eating place to the Ramada. As in previous reviews it is basic but don’t let this put you off. The spring rolls were the best we had all holiday. We did eat here once for our evening meal and were not impressed. We had beef curry and the beef was really tough. It always seemed to be busy at night though.

Staff are friendly and welcoming.
