The food was delicious, portion sizes are good and the cost, you wouldn't believe! Soo cheap, even drinks. The surroundings are not great, but when your eating you don't care!

This restaurant was ranked quite high amongst Kamala Beach restaurants. After visiting there I just wonder why. Service is not good. Menu is long, which is normally a warning sign since really a kitchen cannot handle that long list. We ordered three dishes. Duck with orange, hot plate seafood and vegetable. Duck, meat itself was ok, but they did not... More

Checked reviews here and went there full of hope, however both food and service was just terrible. Ordered "seafood in hot plate with spicy sauce" but it came with "sweet and sour sauce" which was also on the menu. Asked from the waitress but she was very impatient and took away our dish from the table, "You want spicy? Add... More

Loved the decor of this French run place - lots of space, antique furnishings, nice and airy. 6 of us ate here and really enjoyed the food, though the service was lax, even by Thai standards. Best thing for me was the lovely french pastries in the morning - hot out of the oven - delicious!

Ate here twice and it was great. Wifi, really fast service and they only cook with rice oil, a healthy alternative that they explain in the menu (antioxidants, etc). Slightly away from beach but in matter. Can't always get quality, reliable food and vegetables that won't make you sick in Thailand. Solid and pleasant place to eat.

Best food place in Kamala. We tried a few other places beach side but had to keep coming back to Ohlala. Great prices, clean and pleasant surroundings. Good food: fresh, tasty and big variety. Tasty drinks at good prices. Staff, usually, helpful but sometimes didn't seem happy to be there. One even rolled her eyes when I ordered another drink,... More

Had a combination of Thai & European food, could not fault anything. Reasonable prices. Set back on the main through road to Patong but not invisible from the road,... More

Stumbled on this by accident during a evening stroll and decided it looked interesting - so went back a couple of nights later to dine. Glad we did. We had a mixture of Thai dishes and homemade pizza. The Thai food was good, the pizza was excellent - very fresh ingredients on thin, crispy fresh dough bases - kids loved... More

If like my wife and me you need a good coffee to start each holiday day, get to this eclectic little bakery/cafe. Great food and value here and parking not such a hassle as they are on the outskirts of the shopping district. Wish we had found this place earlier! Enjoy
