We went on Tawai few times this year and also few times last year. I love the food! Especially the soft shell crab is amazing. They have a good service as well and they are offering pickup service as well free of charge for a specific area. Enjoy!

This place seemed decent but the food was awful. Typical tourist fare and over priced. The aircon was ineffective and there were lots of mosquitos. Food was unenjoyable and badly seasoned and prepared. The only plus for this place (and hence the 2 star rating) is that they do a pick up and drop off service. Don't waste money or... More

First we waited 15 minutes just to have our order taken and the restaurant was not that busy. They brought our apps. and my wife's entree at the same time, then it took 30... More

Second evening eating at this restaurant, the service is great and friendly and the food is rich of flavours. The atmosphere is really appealing with good lights setting and garden kind of space as its between two roads. We have tried several dishes and all have been good, tempura, spring rolls, wonton soup e.tc. This is a must try when... More

I have eaten here a few times typical Thai menu normally the food has been flavoursome and above-average. This time however the prawns with Tamarind were old and pasty. The chicken with cashew nut was bland and tasteless Overall I would rate it as best average.

Large open patio, with a choice of interior, exterior and garden seatings, all surrounded by lots of pretty vegetation. Service professional and rapid, menu varied and imaginative, and lots of attention to detail. Personally I find most thai restaurants propose the same menu, which can become boring, but it's all a question of how the kitchen interprets each dish. Here... More
