The 99 Bhat cocktails caught our eyes initially but the food was excellent too. Only here a week, but will probably go back.

Choice of food and standard of preparation on a par with the other three neighbouring large restaurants in the same street. A solo guitarist/singer performed some great songs and was not too loud which allowed for conversation and a nice atmosphere. Prices slightly higher than locally.

Used to go there a lot a few years ago when Peter from Sweden was the chef and part owner. Everything was superb - food service and of course the singer. Peter left maybe two years ago now - have gone back a few times but more for the music than the food which is ok but before was 5... More

This is a popular spot for all day dining and into the night with a good bar and often with great live music. Their are some innovative dishes on the menu with some dishes presented to you on timber and other interesting plate ware. Menu will appeal to most tastes. Get a taxi if you are not staying in Kata,... More

I thought it would be better, but an average scandinavian place with the normal Toast Skagen, pizza and steaks. Skewer with chicken is a signature dish. Cheap cocktails and live music.

My partner and I stumbled across this Restaurant this time last year and couldn't praise it enough, however we returned this year but was somewhat dissapointed with the size of our meals. We both had pasta dishes but they came in such small bowls, hardly enough for a main meal. I actually thought they were kids meals! I didn't think... More

Very good guitarist and singer to entertain your dinner: talented and capable. The food though is nothing special, you can eat much better Thai food in other places close by. Cocktails are cheap, again not memorable though

Really good thai food with a lovely live music. Also our 5 year old son really enjoyed both. One of the best panaeng curry on our trip so far.

Myself, my partner and our 6 year old son visited here on New Years Eve 2016/17. From start to finish our entire visit was perfect. The live singer was fantastic, singing a wide array of music with such a beautiful voice!! Our food was spectacular, I had the yellow curry which was so tasty. My partner had the seafood penne...
