used to be brilliant. Obviously no longer part of then Koh Ya chain. Spoke to Japanese tourists there, the Japanese guides are still recommending this place. It is rubbish. Avoid!

Great service - the staff are always friendly and helpful. The buffet is fantastic and the food is marinated and fresh. Only thing is they need more ventilation! Some serious exhaust fans would be great so you don't leave smelling like smoke!
