“Great food, fantastic mango smoothie”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

The place fills up quick but the staff tries to accommodate everyone by adding tables. The decor is nothing to write home about but the food more then makes up for this

Reviewed July 5, 2013

Good food. Really nice personnel.

A little expensive compared to Thai standards, but the quality is really, really good.

“Excellence in every way”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Coming from a hospitality background with in excess of 10 years experience and having travelled to Koh Tao on multiple occasions I can easily say that this is one of, if not the best restaurant on the island.

Restaurant standard Thai food at its best.

Crispy delicious spring rolls and prawn fritters (not oily), spicy and fragrant curries, well put together stir fries, with fresh, high quality ingredients.

Service was comparable to the top restaurants in Melbourne in its class with 2 waiters running about 20 tables. We were always greeted, advised of wait times and sat promptly, with drinks arriving quickly. There was always a smile and good attention to detail.

The food was consistent and the chefs were delightful and obviously took pride in their work.

Excellent value for money.

Highly recommended. Keep up the good work guys!

Tip: When ordering spicy = SPICY!

“Cheap wonderful Thai food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Near the chalok pier with a yin yang sign at the front, this unassuming restaurant is quite busy on a Monday low season June. The decor is not much to write about but the warm service and excellent value Thai food speaks for themselves. We had for entre, spring roll, crispy and fried and tender succulent mini chicken wings. The main green curry chicken was medium spicy as we asked for. The curry with the thick coconut cream certainly taste authentic and delish while the mixed vegetable in oyster sauce was freshly stirfried. Fresh, tasty and cheap.
