Great change from all the seafood and Caribbean dishes. All 5 of us loved what we ordered and was fairly inexpensive.

This was one of our favorite restaurants, its in close proximity to the beach, good variety and good prices, tips and taxes are included unlike some other places that charge you an extra 18÷ and 10%. You are sitting by the poolside and can go swimming if you choose to.

You can beat the atmosphere of this restaurant. Very zen. The food is not like your typical Thai food- but it was really good and simple. We had an amazing waiter who took very good care of us - we enjoyed the experience very much.

We were so pleased to find good Thai food in the DR! Loved the Thai Seafood Green Curry dish. Lovely atmosphere as it is tucked into a tropical garden area.

We liked the food and it was easy to know what to pay because the tax was already built into their prices.

Went to Balicana twice this month and found the food as good as previous visits but the servings were smaller and the service was not up to par. On both occasions they did not have much white wine. First time only 5 glasses for 4 people and last time 3 glasses. You would think that someone could have gone 5... More

Please listen to the reviews of those who say this restaurant has terrible Thai cuisine, if it can even be called such. We live in a cosmopolitan area with many Thai restaurants that are exceptional. This restaurant is not, by far, one of them. My husband and I had the appetizer platter of mostly fried vegetables, 2 tiny items of... More

Good restaurants are hard to find in Punta Cana due to All-Inclusive-Hotel. This is the only me known restaurant catering Asia cuisine. I went there with a friend, but this spot is very suitable for romantic dinners, with your beloved one. It’s difficult to find but even accessible by car. It´s located somehow inside a gated community. The food, fancy... More
