Went early to avoid the rush, food prices were good, food was very nice, service prompt, only thing I didn't like was the glass coke bottles which came to the table opened already. I don't think it was real coke or it had been watered down. We weren't allowed to take them either so I'm guessing they refill them.

It was ok but by local standards it is over rated the que isn't worth the wait for the food you get there are much better restaurants run by locals that served better quality local dishes but if you want to put up with the wait good luck

Stayed in a hotel right next to here and we're recommended to check it out. Did not disappoint. Massaman curry was delicious and the chicken with basil was amazing as well.

No reservations are allowed. You better go before 8 pm otherwise will have to wait a very long queue!however it is worth it. Good and fresh fish, fast service and reasonable price: this is the key for the success. I will definitively come back to this restaurant if I ever go to Karon.

The food was amazing very tasty and very cheap. The service was great. Do make sure you get to the restaurant early in the evening because it's very popular otherwise you will need to queue however there is a take a number system.

Very popular food good. Very average layout and what you would call local charm, with no ambience . Staff okay.
