NOTE: Wish Tripvisore will SEPARATE food from hotel vs. accommodation. This review is for the FOOD. I did not stay at the hotel.
Golden Iyara is located about 10 minutes from the GT in Thailand side. A total tourist trap as there are no other eateries nearby. I booked a day tour to GT, etc. We stopped here for lunch as part of the tour package. It seems, the only place to eat nearby. The food was really disgusting! I mean, overcooked veggies, tasteless! All the diners are hauled there from toured trips. The place is so run down. The food was overflowing from the containers. It needs a competition.
If you are taking any of the day trip tour packages, bring your own lunch.
