“Great food with a View”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We ate at this restaurant two years ago and enjoyed it. Its good to see that the standards have not declined. Its good Thai food and a very reasonable price. Its on the waterfront so very nice to have the sea breeze or watch the sunset.

“A good restaurant along the front”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Good food, large choice of dishes. Ate inside for the air-con but didn't experience the 'sea smell' of the promenade that others mention about this area of KK. If you are hankering after all things coconut-curry - head here.

“Don't miss this one”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We had a great dinner in this charming waterfront restaurant. The black pepper crab was delicious, as was the seafood tom yam. My wife had the spingrolls and pad thai with prowns. The staff was very attentive to all our wishes. This restaurant is not a pure thai restaurant as you can get other cuisine (especially the seafood!).
