There are a few restaurants along the beach path and the are all fine. Good food at a good price for lunch or dinner. You can also buy beers and ice creams too take on the beach.

Been told it was a must go to but not sure why. Location great right on the beach, free WIFI if you need it. Lots on the menu but food average. Nothing to excite just average Thai food, I'd watch out for the fish soup didn't really agree with one of us.

We tried many restaurants and bars in Kamala and this was the best value for money. Fresh cooked food and friendly staff will help you.

Unfortunately the place was full of European tourists smoking with no regard for other diners. When we asked to move upstairs to get my daughter away from the smoke we were met with resistance despite other people eating up there. It appeared our waitress just couldn't be bothered walking upstairs, extremely poor service. Food was average so try somewhere else.

With a view of the beach (and many large German men), Pond offers a variety of Thai food at an affordable price. Ordered the red curry with chicken, offered plenty of kick but was missing depth of favour, tasty nonetheless With little damage done to the hip-pocket, a revisit may be in order.

the stuff is humorous and friendly. It's easy to find the your meal, because look the left and to the right: "it smells fantastic." the food (from green to red curry, the garlic bread with cheese, grilled seafood) all was fresh made, healthy, and good looking too. < yes it's direct by the sea, that makes the price a bit...

We were attracted by the price, but everything we ordered was completely NOT tasty. Tom yam was awful (carrot and corn inside!!). We were very hungry, but absolutely disappointed by this meal. DON'T come here, even if you are dying of hunger. The service was quick though.

We had a very nice dinner at the beach. Just listening to the waves and enjoying a good meal. The service was fast and they were always smiling (like everywere in Thailand!!)

This was really our favourite place at Kamala beach. Good prices and very tasty Thai food. One of our group ordered the cheeseburger which was not the best he ever had, but this was not really unexpected. Great cocktails as well, and staff was very nice and helpful!

Thank Reneé W
