If you like tai food don't miss this place. It is not fancy but the food we had was delicious and plated beautifully and the servings were large. We had the soft shell Massaman and it was excellent.

Food here is excellent but service and waitress attitude leaves a lot to be desired. It takes over an hour to get your food. But again the food is excellent.

This place has a Thai menu. We ordered takeout and it was great. They forgot to include a salad we ordered and we didn't know until we were back at our house. Lesson learned to check the bag. Everything else was great though. Good size...More

When Mr H said he wanted to come here I was a bit skeptical, mainly due to the mixed reviews on here. How glad am I that he persuaded me! We'd watched the sunset from our nearby resort so arrived fairly late. The restaurant doesn't...More
