Good thai food, great service but lots of drinkers rather than eaters there.

“FISHBOOOOOOWWWWWWWWL!”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

What a fun place. Food is good, not fine dining but really lovely and you get great value for money. It is the staff and owner who make you want to come back and when you go you must try a fishbowl! They are enormous cocktails served in a fishbowl. They definitely serve 4 people are you are crzy/stupid if you try to drink it on your own! Such a great place to eat before going on a night out.

“Great Food”
Reviewed 25 August 2009

I met one of the owners while staying at my hotel- he recommended it to us and it was fabulous. Only suggestion would be to get Air Conditioning (not just a fan) to cool off after eating the spicy food! (although this could have changed since I went last Aug 2008)

Food portions were very generous (mine had enough for 2 people for sure!)

All in all a great restaurant in Ios!
