Went here for dinner due to the proximity to our hotel. While the beach setting with wonderful bamboo walkway and hut is unique, the food is nothing to rave about. Well presented, however lacking unique flavor, the green curry was so so. We had ordered...More

This is probably the nicest restaurant on Kantiang Beach, which means the prices are just slightly more than others, but it really doesn't matter when the food is so delicious. We were served by far the BEST papaya salad with flash fried chicken we've ever...More

We had dinner here one night and the place was pleasant, with cozy lighting and a good view of the sunset. The food was good and the beer was cold. Not much more you could ask for considering the cosy ambience.

We arrived for lunch just when a big party of other guests had just ordered, so the staff was busy! That meant that food took a bit long to get served, which can be a bit of a hassle with two hungry children.

Had a lovely time with 6 adults and 6 kids. This end of the beach very clean, perhaps thanks to Pimalai Resort keeping it so. Food very good and reasonably priced for a top location. Definately worth a visit.

I guess they have free taxi pickup. For daytime you probably don't need booking, but I guess for night time
