We had lunch here and the young lads who work there were out on the beach putting out sun beds etc. They asked a reluctant waitress (?) to take our order who seemed put out by this and never once spoke to us.

When the food arrived she banged it down on the table again without a word. It was a shame really as the two Thai salads we had were both spicy as requested, tasty and fresh too - the best we've had in our 2 weeks in Thailand in fact.

We were finally spoken to when the bill was presented and she tried to turn on the charm to get a tip. Some chance!!

I'd rather go somewhere where my custom is appreciated rather than an inconvenience.

Had to wait a long time for the food after the order was placed and then they muddled up our order with somebody else's.

We visited 3 times while staying at the Shambhala, just up the beach, and thoroughly enjoyed it every time. For me, one of the best aspects of visiting Thailand is being able to eat wonderful, flavourful, inexpensive food while sitting on the beach, gazing at the sea with a cold Chang in hand. Tonson therefore ticked all the boxes. Every dish we tried had a great balance of flavours and was fantastic value for money.

It was a great spot to watch the sunset with your feet in the sand and a beer in your hand but we returned for lunch another day and weren't as impressed with the food. There wasn't anything majorly wrong with the food it just wasn't as good as other places with had tried.

We had dinner here on our second night and as we had had prawns the night before, we opted for the red snapper. Although the food is good, I didn't think it was as good as Sun Beach or My Friend and the staff weren't as friendly. Also, it didn't seem very busy and so it lacked some atmosphere.
I would try them again just in case they were on an off day.
