Saikaew Villa has a restaurant facing Sai Kaew Beach, with deck chairs lined up on the silver sand beach. It is an ideal location, but falls short on several measures.
The worst is the service. You literally have to get up and walk around until you find a waiter. Then you realize why they are not looking out for you and attending to their customers. They are too busy on their i.phones playing games and competing with each other. They almost seem to resent having to close the game to come and give you a menu.
The only redeeming thing I can say, is that when my lunch came, it was excellent. I had ordered a Thai fish soup in coconut milk, and a side bowl of steamed rice.
The soup was exactly what I felt like. It had chopped galangal and lemon grass, red onion slices, chili, slices of fresh coconut meat, garlic and other spices, all with generous slices of boneless fish filets. The soup had been cooked quickly, so the vegetable ingredients were still crisp and with their own individual flavours, but had also melded to provide a lovely balanced mild Thai soup.
I would give this establishment two stars, but have added another because I really did enjoy the soup.More
