Do not. I repeat. DO NOT eat here. Food was absolutely tasteless if you don’t take into consideration the burnt taste. I could not finish my fried noodles for the life of me. Trust me when I say this, it is not worth it however...More

Very good food as always! Papaya salad is very tasteful. Hot pans are really good. The family is very friendly and the whole staff. This is our 4th vacation in Koh Lanta and we found the restaurant 3 years ago. We like it very much!

Went here after reading excellent reviews, tried the prawn in sweet and sour sizzling plate. The waitress spoke no English whatsoever and couldn't even manage when I pointed to the menu. The food was ok, but nothing to rave about.
