I have never actually eaten here (although I will in August when I go back). But that is not really the purpose of this Restaurant...it's about the show. Every night, they do a fire show and people from all over the island cram themselves into this venue to watch. Do yourself a favor, book a table, grab a beer tower,... More

Had the tower beer, and great sea food dinner. Suggest to go early 6pm when less people, you can get your order faster. After that , its slow..

This was crowded around 6 - 8 PM. It is sitting on the floor with tiny table restaurant. So please aware of mosquitoes and others. Food is typically thai-food, neutrally taste. Fire show at 8.30 PM was so fantastic! Shouldn't miss it!! I suggest to not sit near the stage, it seems hot and smell (fuel)

You must go to this restaurant for the food, and even more so for the fire show. Amazing things they do with the fire and the finale on the beach is quite a sight. You must get there an hour or two early to get a seat on the beach. We arrived about 30 minutes before the show started and... More

I don't want to be a hater but here is my experience: Bad service Food not fresh (pineapple dish with rice, pranws, chicken) served in like 2min, and cold! They wanted to charge us 20THB for wifi! And finally they just disappeared so we couldn't even get the check so we could get outta there. Very disapointed.

Came here for the fire show but the food is not really good and I got sick. On the other hand the staff is really nice but doesn't speak good English

Low tables, thai style, excellent menu at reasonable prices and a real chill out place, relax in the evening with a reasonable priced glass if wine ( difficult in Thailad) , no firework display when we were there as a mark of respect for the king. An excellen fresh fish selection and a great place to meet fellow travellers, this... More

We visited as a family and were seated inside as beach seats were full, Food was a mixture of Thai/western, food was promptly served and decent, Fire show really is amazing to watch, this is always the busiest restaurant on koh samet but service and food is always good. The Thai people we dined with enjoyed the food more here... More
