“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Food is great here. Authentic and fresh with no compromise on quality. Waited for a while but this is not a problem because none of the food is conveniently reheated, therefore you should expect to wait! Establishment itself is pretty rough and could use a complete refurbishment including the toilets which weren't overly clean either! So food is 10/10, staff are fabulous but restaurant decor and toilets let it down: 4/10. As I'm not overly fussy about decorations, I do rate it highly, as we were here for the food after all.

“Still delicious after several years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Beautiful way to finish a day at the beach with authentic Thai food, served in generous proportions.
This is a cafe so casual dress is the norm. Drinks menu is limited with beers and house wine, but you can BYO wine. Can take away, but have always eaten in. Favorite dish is green curry with beef chicken, yum!

“Fresh and packed with flavour”

Excellent thai food here, the menu has all the classics. You have to wait a little while for your food but the result is freshly prepared and full of flavour. Well worth the wait.
