We had been here before with friends when we were staying at the Merlin Beach Resort. This time there were 11 of us staying in Patong and we had raved about this place so much, everyone wanted to go. Luckily we planned ahead, as the restaurant is currently closed whilst the Merlin Beach Resort is being renovated. Obviously it was... More

While staying in Patong we ventured out in tuk tuks on the recommendation of friends. They were closed but opened especially for our group of 11 the next night. The menu was extensive and really reasonably priced. Watching the sun set on a beautiful night the views were excellent. The staff were great and very pleasant. We had a fantastic... More

We dined here for dinner 6 of the 7 nights we were staying nearby at Twin Sands. It was a truly delightful experience every time. The staff, the food, the view, the location, the service (always with a smile), the cheerful 'sawadee' when we walked past the kitchen, the walk there and back (either via the steps or the driveway),...

We were planning to eat here even before being told by other residents at our resort how good it was. Got there early so we could return to our resort before it got dark. The view was fantastic and we thought the addition of a bottle of insect repellant on the table was a clever idea. We both had prawns... More

We came here a couple of times because the food was so good. Original Thai food, well priced and amazing flavours. It is just down the road from Twin Sands resort and a short walk up the steps from Merlin beach or the driveway which we found a safer option in the dark. The staff at this place were great... More

Worth every step of the climb from Merlin Beach resort to get to this little gem. The view is probably the best I have ever had in a restaurant anywhere. We ate here twice and were greeted with big smiles each time. The relaxed atmosphere is perfect and you wont want to leave. We started with prawn tempura, spring rolls... More

Very good little restaurant just up the hill from the Merlin Beach Resort. Authentic Thai food worth climbing the hill, there are steps and less mobile people may have difficulty. Competitive prices and better than most of the hotel food. The cashew dishes are particularly good as was the noodle soup.
