They were good but for 300 Baht they should be good. It was ok, nothing spectacular Nachos with salsa, beans and cheese and some... More

Visited The Rusty Pelican two years ago and really enjoyed it. So thought it would be a good idea to save it till our last night. Did not disappoint, food very tasty and fresh. Would recommend to anyone. See you next time we're back.

Visited Rusty Pelican last year and was impressed. This year was just as good. Food is great, a change from Thai cuisine and well presented and cooked. Cocktails are very good, at least they taste as if they have alcohol in them unlike some other places. Can highly recommend this establishment

We really enjoyed the food here, the ambience is so pleasant and the American owner/manager is interested in you as a person as well as as a customer. Highly recommended.

We went to Rusty Pelican for dinner. The atmosphere, the service and their food was all good. There was a pool table which you can play until your food is ready.

My wife & I both love thai food but it is nice to have a change after a few days & there is no better place to go than the Rusty Pelican. Great Mexican food, friendly staff & first class service. Really good to see that the food & service is easily as good as last year.

Really nice bar to spend a couple of chilled out hours in. Great music, the nachos with roasted salsa is ridiculously good and the hosts - Mo and his wife, make you feel very welcome. I didn't eat a full meal but the menu looked awesome and the many people eating here looked consistently delighted. The frozen margaritas are delicious... More
