We ate here twice while we were staying at the hotel. We were not impressed. The first time we walked in we were totally ignored so found our own way to a table. They finally served us and we had a fairly unremarkable meal. The food is inexpensive. The second time we tried the seafood barbecue. The seafood was disappointing,... More

Food was fabulous so was the service. Staff very friendly. Food was delicious hot and very tasty. The decor is nostalgic with heaps of old photos of Thailand. Along with objects from during the war, which all add to the ambience. A very enjoyable meal indeed

After three weeks of being in Kata Beach we were finally lured into this restaurant. It looked crowded so we decided to give it a shot. By far the dirtiest floors and tables we have seen so far. The service was almost non-existant and the food was super dull. My husband and I ordered two sodas, sweet and sour chicken... More

Very nice fancy place. Terrace overlooking the sea. Average food. The buffet is totally overpriced. 790 for average food no much selection. Especially the seafood which is what attracted me: just prawn mussels and squid. I should have tried a la carte but dont think I will come again.

We've been to over a dozen restaurants and stalls in a week in various parts of Thailand. And this was worse than any here or in the U.K. I've been to. Spicy grilled pork salad was tough and boring. No flavour, no atmosphere, no nothing! Also the fish on ice out front didn't look fresh. I mentioned the eyes were... More

What's to like? It looked inviting - an old school restaurant with warm wood interior. Pricing was fair. Perhaps we chose the wrong meal. In the mood for western food (half their menu) we got burgers, fries, salad and beer. Even though we ordered identical meals, and the restaurant had only a dozen customers, our dishes came out five minutes... More

We've been travelling through Thailand for the last week and had some amazing food in other places. Unfortunately the food was bland and quite boring. Spicy salad not spicy at all.

We came here for their Seafood Buffet. Cost 790 Baht, the worst money I have ever spent. Don't know what there food off the menu is like, but don't go for their Seafood Buffet it is a disaster.
