The presentation and decor were lovely, but unfortunately the food was not. Not authentic Thai food at all, everything was slightly sweet and tasted of MSG, more like a western version of Chinese takeout. We left most of it. This may be what some people are looking for when they are over in Thailand, but definitely not for us!

But the owner of the land is wanting his property back and I think the name Manubai as well. Hence our friends are now looking for another location in Kamala. Was out meal wonderful ? - Oh... More

Saw this place while walking by it one evening. After reading the mixed reviews I was hesitant at first but pleasantly surprised the next evening when 4 of us sat down for dinner there. Service was attentive. We ordered mojitos and appetizers first as many restaurants here have no rhyme or reason for what dishes are brought out first. Drinks... More

We ate here tonight and enjoyed the food. The owner spoke to us in French as well and that was nice. The prices were correct and the food was good. We don't have any complaints.

This place is lovely. The staff were were good, efficient and smiling. The food was not as good as the ambience but was still of a high standard and nicely presented. You will pay a bit more than most of Kamala but it is worth a visit. The bar upstairs is beautiful, i recommend you go up and take a... More

Delphine and Pepe are superb hosts at their stylish Kamala restaurant. The food was very good. It's worth going early to take the time to have a drink, or two, and maybe your starters in the lounge bar upstairs. Be sure to try the shrimp cakes. Not sure how, but they are so much nicer than others I've had
