“Expected better”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

I ate here after seeing it was the #1 rated place in
Kamala, however we left disappointed. Atmosphere is nice but service was not very attentive and food is good but no better than any other restaurant in Kamala. Good value for money.

“Wonderful! The crab is sensational”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Based on TA reviews, we ate here. It's not a fancy restaurant, but was very inviting. We were lucky to get a table with just a 10 mins wait, but many others were turned away after us. The service was very very slow as it was busy, but we were sipping cocktails so that passed the time!

After reading all the reviews of the crab curry, I had to try it and I was definitely not disappointed! The flavours and the crab meat itself were excellent. There was a lot of work involved to extract all of the meat, but it was worth it. My husband had the red snapper curry, which was also excellent, but after he tasted the crab, he was very jealous of mine!!

We had planned to return so that my hubby could order the crab, but we never got the chance. This was some of the best food that we tasted in Thailand.

“One of the best restaurants Kamala”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Based on tripadvisor reviews, we visited Manubai and we were not disappointed. We actually visited the place three times. Each time the food was very well prepared and the service was impeccable. Can highly recommend this cozy restaurant.

“Tasty, fast, clean.”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

Had the green curry. As good as I've had and deliciously sinuous clearing spicy. Ate more than I should have because but waitress brought us a box of tissues.

Great cocktails, super clean facilities with western bathroom. You can eat the vegetables and fruit here which is a good place to start. Pricey but still good value for tour baht.
