As per the title. Was very surprised to find the same prices and taste than in other thai restaurants but right on the beach. Must do in Patong.

What more could you ask for? Beach view. Sound of the ocean. Excellent and prompt service. Friendly staff. Good white wine. Excellent green chicken curry. Fried rice. Prawns with basil. Delicious. Reasonably priced. Have dined here every year and will return again.

Only a short stroll along Patong beach to where you are able to eat the most delicious Thai or Western food whilst watching the sunset. Happy hour cocktails and the cheapest three course meal you could have.

This is one of my favourite places in Patong. Greeted as an old friend by the great staff. Food still of the highest quality at incredible value and cold drinks by the beach. It just does not get any better. Will be straight there next visit.

Had dinner here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed, had the Pad Thai, 80 Baht, plenty of prawns, not spicy, only complaint was my partner said the beer could have been colder, service was great,complimentary fruit was lovely to finish, would definitely eat there on our next trip.

We enjoyed dinner here by the beach. Definitely you want a table on the beachside not up close to the restaurant- it adds atmosphere, more romantic & a much prettier view. The beachside tables are only out at night, during the day the area serves as a carpark. We both enjoyed our meals which were a cheeseburger and Tom Kha... More

All ways good, attentive service, if you want it spicy really Thai you get it, if you like your food not so hot they do it, lovely flavours. Funnily the Bruchetta is really good tho not Thai food.

Ate here 3 times. We went there first at lunch time just for a drink. They only have a few tables and were busy but did not complain when we just ordered drinks. We saw the food and changed our minds and had Papaya Sald and fish cakes. Delicious. The next day we came for lunch again and had mango... More

Decided to try this seafood after seeing it on tripadvisor & recommendations from friends. Realised most of the food at patong are around the same price range & offers around the same variety. This one is different as it is by the beach! Got a good view of the beach in the morning however be prepared for the flies. Later... More

Wai thai was always one of our favourites but after our last visit I'm not sure we'll go back,I can only guess that it's changed hands,the food and service were poor at best try somewhere else.
