“Worst service in Thailand.”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Very deceptive. The place looks high end... But the second you want to eat there, you find out its the worst place to eat in Pattaya. Waitress only came when summoned and fR from when you actually want them (due to laziness); Thai culture is typically relaxed, which can come off as unprofessional to westerners, but this, along with the Italian restaurant it cooperates with are outright negligent. With more servers than patrons it took as long to get drinks as the food, which by no means was their intent.
Worse, the Thai are known as a relaxed and happy people, and the waitress didn't seem to even try to exhibit this value - possibly all of the least happy people I've met in the country all work here.
The waiters and waitresses were blatantly paying far more attention to their smartphone games and chitchat as far away from the customers as possible, and the managers did not seem to care. For a restaurant with only six customers (and more servers) at a time, messing up a simple order is seemingly impossible, but they managed to achieve it.

The food was good enough and probably reason why the place stays afloat. and perhaps worth the price. Would not recommend eating here if you want to ever see your waiter/waitress.
The nicest living beings at the place are the stray cats.

I really wish I could give the service rating a rating as nonexistent as what theirs was. Sadly I have to give it a 1, far more than it deserves.

“Nice ambience”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Very nicely set out restaurant, we sat outside ordered fried rice, green curry, pork ribs and kids had pizza from Toscana next door. Food tasty and would return. Only negative was the waitress could have been more enthusiastic - had a sour look on her face the whole time we were there.

“Recommended by a local”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

The place was recommended by the driver that fetched us from the airport so we tried it. The place is easy to find and if you're not in the mood for Thai food, they also have Italian courtesy of the twin restaurant (Toscano?).

“Very good Thai”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Very large and beautifully arranged restaurant, with THAI/ITALIAN sides. The Thai was very good, and very reasonably priced. Papaya salad was great as was the Green Chicken curry. Plan to visit again
