The view, food, drinks and the team at the Rice Paddy are absolutely wonderful. Who would have expected such a professional, classy and still relaxed, affordable eatery in Koh Yao Noi of all places? A must go-to place if you happen to come here.

Great food and venue but can’t return as they serve shark, sailfish and stingray. Ignorance is no excuse.
