Sorry Kob Thai, despite the many good reviews, we can only give you three stars. The food was only average, prices were about average and the service was average for Lamai Beach. The location was not bad with the outdoor setting but unfortunately the mosquitos...More

I had booked Kob Thai in advance and had to change the date. They were very accommodating. The food was quite tasty. We had the papaya salad, green curry, chicken with basil, and chocolate ice cream beignet for dessert. Enjoyed it all, especially the curry....More

The resturant is not the one you just walking bye because of the location. The food is good and wery nice portrayed. When you are eating with a 3 year old is a good thing that the resturant is having a pool inside😊

Catch a taxi, it's a little out of the way and all the taxi drivers know it. If your going with kids take their swimmers as there's a small pool they can use.

We were there late, so didn't make any reservation. Seems ok. But can't hurt to make one just to make sure the trip is not wasted :)

A very quiet setting , in the nature , 600 meters from the center of Lamai ( in the street of Coco Splash Water park), well isolated tables ( under wooden salas), and a small cute swimming pool. A very authentic thai food ( let's try our thai discovering menu , with 8 dishes to share for 2).Very romantic atmosphere at night.
