Isdaan is a floating restaurant consisting of bamboo cabanas on rafts. Throughout the extensive site run a number of concrete pathways between the rafts and a number of other attractions.
There's a good fun atmosphere - you might be greeted by circus performers at the gate and you can win free fish if you play a couple of skill games. There's a stall where you can throw crockery at a wall (for a small fee) to relieve your stress levels. Possibly the decoration is a bit *too* tacky and wacky - as well as some nice architectural features, there's also some weird Disney-esque features that don't really suit the place. If you're looking for a fish restaurant that has an 18-foot fibreglass statue of the Angry Birds, you've found it.
Kids are well catered for. There was a free face painter available, as well as balloons and free fish food so that they can feed the koi that swim around every cabin. Youngsters are also supplied with life jackets, which is reassuring in a country not known for its health and safety!
Service is not the fastest but it's a large site with a complex network of kitchens, bars and preparation areas so you need to show a little more patience than the average restaurant.
We had no complaints about the quality or preparation of the wide variety of meat and fish dishes we had. The service and tipping policies were very fair and clear.
There's only two minor complaints: there's the obligatory singing groups that go around the restaurant - one is fine but when the second or third group come around you feel it's an imposition. And good luck deciphering the bundle of papers that passes as your bill.
