I have travelled to Thailand 8 times in the last 15 years. Ate here at the conclusion of a recent 3 week trip, and never knew Thais could make food this flavorless. I can speak some Thai, and ordered some southern dishes -- a southern sour curry, some grilled fish, a shrimp salad, and a few others. The fish was competently grilled. The rest of the food was flavorless and dull beyond belief. They were also very expensive for such dishes. Yes, the location is great, the setting pretty, but the food terrible. The service was also pathetic -- almost impossible to get drink refills. I know there is little decent Thai food in Ao Nang, but this was awful.

Setting, service, drinks and food were excellent!
This was our first night out of our second holiday here, so we thought we would start with one of the favourites from six years ago and very glad we did.
The only slight issue was that when asked for a dish to be not spicy, we got the opposite. I loved it but the wife struggled!
Recommended place!

Located on Seafood Street in Ao Nang, we absolutely loved this place. The views are absolutely stunning and the sound of the waves adds to the dining experience.

We had some amazing tiger prawns & grilled fish. Easy going service - not too pushy. Wide variety on the menu - fresh catch of the day is displayed outside.

Do not miss this place on your visit to Ao Nang if you enjoy your sea food - one of the best meals we've ever had on a holiday.

After staying in Ao Nang for the past week I would say this has been one of the best dining experiences. Food is taste with clean flavours. Service is prompt and efficient. View is stunning.

We had a hot seafood platter on Christmas Day, the food was delicious! Added bonus no service charge or tax and no charge for using a credit card.
