“Good fish, good view, staff so-so”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this place by a local. When we arrived it was unclear where we were supposed to enter the restaurant, but finally someone came and showed us to a table which had an incredible view of the bay.
We had good spring rolls.
I then had a grouper of just over 1kg. The waiter took me to the basins and netted a fish for me, and I ordered it deep-fried with garlic and black pepper. The fish was good. It cost me 770 THB.
My wife had a chicken curry which was average in taste - we have had better thai dishes for lower price in Ao Nang.
The place had a bit of a chaotic feeling and many of the staff looked like teenagers with a dull "whatever" look on their faces instead of a smile. Our waiter was ok, but the restaurant did not have a welcoming feeling. Customers where mostly Asian.
Toilets were clean.

“Taste of Local Thai Seafood Cuisine”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

When we travel, we honestly love to have food as local cuisine to actually feel like we are really there. Especially in Thailand, we do love their STREET FOOD so much, inexpensive and taste extremely like Thai! Tourist foods are on the long beach street as you easily find but this place is a bit further. It is on the way from Au Nang to Au Nang speed boat service area. Not many tourists go there and that is a good sign if you like real local cuisine as we do. Fresh fishes, quick service and reasonable price and indeed it tastes like THAI!

“Great Grouper but terrible staff”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

This is a huge restaurant right next to the sea in Ao Nang Thailand.

We ordered a large grouper which was steamed and served with a lemon sauce and it was delicious. The tiger prawns in garlic were not bad but had been left on the BBQ a little too long. The papaya salad was awesome but the clams we ordered were dull. So the food was passable.

However, the staff are pathetic if not down right rude. A bunch of kids that need some serious training. I would go back for the grouper but not much else.

“Don't even think about it.”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Just go somewhere else. I've been in Thailand for a week now, and this is the worst place I've been. It looks good from the outside, and a lovely location. You have been warned.
