“Wow, amazing place!!!”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

We chose this place in a rush and as soon as we entered and were seated, our bad day vanished. We felt instantly comfortable and at home. Modern but not posh, clean, cool, quiet, and genuinely riendly staff. We had red curry gai and a noodle dish, both were fantastic (tip, their red curry is spectacular but we ordered it thai style hot and probably should have asked for medium spicy). We returned a couple of nights later as we wanted to try their green curry. Once again, had a great experience, actually rates as one of our best food experiences ever. We also ordered the crispy duck topped with salad and served with sticky rice.....WOW!!!! This has to be one of the best dishes we have ever eaten. The duck was succulent and perfectly cooked, the salad rich, fresh, spicy, sweet, sour....perfect!!

Prices are slightly higher than other local style restaurants, but still cheap in western terms, at home (Oz) we would have happily paid $50 for this meal.

If you want a comfortable, cool, friendly, quality evening, go here.

“Off night?”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

We ate here one evening during our stay in Khao Lak and found it lacking in inspiration, with fairly bland food adapted for the 'tourist' palete, and with hit and miss service - drinks not being delivered, taking ages to take our order, no real interest in whether or not we had enjoyed our meal.

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

The food was very average, nicely presented but slim in quantities, actually we stayed hungry after it. Certainly not worth the money you pay.

“Excellent duck dishes -- for a fair price”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

This restaurant is the hobby of a police officer. He obviously enjoys serving tourists in the evening after his hard job in Takua Pa Police Station. I eat only duck dishes in this restaurant, nowhere else in Khao Lak are they as delicious as here. And every time there is something new to surprise me, a new herb, a different fruit in the sweet sauce, rice in a bigger bowl. This creates a joyful evening every time I go there.
