“Worst meal we had in two weeks”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

We went there twice, once for lunch and once for dinner, as the restaurant was the closest to our villa. First time we went there we only ate salads, a pretty bland, watery seafood salad, and a very chewy spicy beef (was this grey stuff really beef?) salad. We decided to give it another try for dinner, as they have a very nice setting with tables on the beach, thinking that they might be better at curries than they are with salads. Again, the food was tame and boring. They had actually put potatoes in my green curry... Even more irritating, their smoothies are not based on fresh fruits but on syrup and ice, a shame in a country where fruits are so sweet and juicy!
To top it all, prices are pretty steep for a beach front eatery. Their thai food is as expensive as upscale restaurants like Twisted thai or Spirit house, but they are playing in completely different leagues!
