Very nice people, lots of thai specialities , good and tasty food, beautiful place. We came for my girlfriend birthday and the lovely staff offered a flower bouquet to her. On Saturday, Thai night with Thai music and dancers. Definitely a place to go.

Calm and romantic ambience. Delicious food. Courteous staff. A bit on the pricey side but worth it. The steamed fish was the stand out dish, I’ll come back again just for it.

We walked more than a kilometre by the beach to try out this place and were not disappointed. We got a table by the beach and enjoyed Tasty food with live Thai traditional music. Slightly expensive but worth it. Staff was very courteous.
