The atmosphere of the restaurant is the thing i really like. it is far from the city about 20-30mins drive. It is very peaceful place surounded by the mangrove.


Steamed fresh prawns is the popular dish. The restaurant is having their own prawn farm.

I would say the price is among the cheapest in KK. You can have a fresh juice, veriety choices.

Dont expect a traditional restaurant. It is a bit off the beaten track so you neen to drive here.
you select your fish at the entrance from tanks.
the tables are plastic but everything is clean.
we were the only white faces there but were treated very well.
the food arrives as it is ready so not all together.
Rice and noodles were the best ever.
lobster and crab were a bit of a battle to extract the meat but delicious.
A great experience.

It was on Sunday night, Gayang was fully occupied. It leave us no options but change dining venue. Along the road back to town, I noticed this restaurant and let's give it a try. Obviously, it's wrong, absolutely wrong choice.

Very expensive, not valued for money, not flexible, not tasty, poor service,... in summary, please avoid this restaurant.. Just take McD or KFC rather than it.

Located quite far from KK town.They forgot to cook our soft shell crab. Food was so-so and quite pricey. Atmosphere was nice and lots of space, located on the water. Coconut milkshake was great!

Located far from the city. Fresh seafood. Varieties of dishes. Feels like living in a village. Nice view. Can see the forest and river although its smelly and dirty. Price are quite expensive but the food are nice. Not enough parking spaces and road condition are not that good.
