I have dined at Poppies several times. Really enjoy this place by the sea. It's relaxing. Great ambiance , good service. The soft shell crab yellow curry. Penang curry prawns are esp good! Banana fritters a fav of mine👍

We arrived just ahead of time and... More

Restaurant is overlooking the beautiful beach, best chicken satay I have ever had. Curries are to die for as well. Prices are not cheap, similar to Australia in a good restaurant but food is worth it.

The view on the beach was the best thing about the place. However, the restaurant was typical and nothing special. Food was very good.

What we found was a charming property, right on the beach with a gorgeous fairy lit pool and a fabulous Thai menu (also western options). The food was great and the view was phenomenal.
