“Great Food!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Located just across our hotel we walked in by chance and were so surprised by the friendly staff and excellent food that we ended up having dinner here every evening during our stay. We worked our way through the menu.... Every dish we had was simply delicious and can be recommended, especially the home style curry with prawns or seafood. We are definitely going to miss this place!

“Not worth the trip”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We went there as it was rated number one on tripadvisor, and it was close to our hotel. Very average food, we ordered steam fish from the catch of the day, not tasty at all, quite flavorless. I had the masalam chicken floating in a pool of coconut cream, not the way I ever had it in Thailand. Would definitely not stop by if you have the choice.

“Disappointing experience”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I fail to understand how this place got good reviews in trip advisor. The food is average at best, the service is below standards and the atmosphere is so so. There are MANY much better places in the island!

“Good food, prickly service.”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Good food and fair price with nice decor and family friendly in spite of prickly service from the Austrian manager. While we didn't experience the usually very friendly Thai service, we did enjoy the good Thai food served here with fresh fish that was not only very good but also very reasonably priced. We would go back.

“Good enough, not special.”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Maybe it's me, being a foodie or I just don't understand all the raving that's going on about this place. We went here yesterday, very much looking forward to a great dinner experience. Upon arrival we had to wait in line with 3 other couples, no problem for us. We arrived around 20.30 at night. After being seated (you share a table with other tourists, since most of the tables are for 4 to 8 guests) with another couple at the same table (we didn't mind this, but maybe some people do?), it took al while before someone came to take our order, after which 2 people arrived at the same time to take our order. We took the garlic bread as a starter, since there were no other interesting/appealing appetizers to choose from (the standard springrolls, tempura, cashew nuts or satay stuff) The garlicbread was just that. Some toasted pieces of baguette with butter and cut pieces of garlic on top. As a main I went for the Guay Tiew Pad See Ew (stirfried rice noodles with vegetables and soy sauce) with shrimp and my partner chose the hotpot/hotplate stirfried vegetables with prawns. Well, the hotplate was exactly as mentioned on the menu, vegetables with prawns, no more, no less. Some onions, green and red peppers and morning glory, stirfried in a hot plate. You had to order some rice to accompany this dish and the flavours were just plain. My noodles were fine. Both of our dishes were fine, but nothing special or no "wow" factor. No distinct surprising flavours, just fine. So why all these over the top reviews? Beats me. Tonight, we'll be taking the 10 minute walk to Time for Lime restaurant instead, for some real ooohing and aaahing over some of the best food we ever tasted in Thailand.
