The service was friendly as well as attentive. However, one waiter had a bit of a body odor problem but that could be due to the humidity making him sweat a lot.
We ordered fish as well as some beef salad among the curries. Although the food was not authentic Thai food, the flavors were good and it was tasty. The desserts such as the mango with glutinuous rice or the wild banana cooked in coconut milk was perfection. Just the right level of sweetness.
The view was outstanding. Be sure to make a reservation to get the best seat possible! It was approximately 60000 Baht for 7pax with beers. Note that we didn't order stuff like prawns which usually kick up the bill. Definitely will visit again in the future.

Thank you for your review. However, I think you may have made a mistake with the 60,000 Baht. You would needed to have expensive wines, champagne, lobsters etc. etc. to have a bill that high. Maybe you accidently added a zero. We do hope to see you again.

Recommended by our hotel and Tripadvisor. Fantastic view but only ok food. Generally too much fish sauce used - do not go for the pomelo salad! Fried squid was fresh but not great. Water chestnut and lemon grass ice cream make up for it.
Still one of the better places in Patong.

Worst restaurant i have ever been to in Thailand!
Seems a pretty place and a good view - BUT AVOID at all costs.

Food Poisoned and violently ill!
Expensive and food really nothing to rate!

We had the pomelo salad and chicken ginger with egg friend rice.
The prawns in the pomelo salad were spat out and thrown over the balcony as they were definitely not fresh.

After speaking to friends and family in phuket we were told they too have been poisoned there and they have a rat problem which is contaminating the food!

Our seafood is brought in fresh 7 days a week. If you felt there was something wrong, it would have been a good idea to mention to the staff. Fortunately we have no other comments like this. I did read your other reviews and noticed you did not have a good time in Phuket. It's a shame as it really is a great place. Better luck next time.

This restaurant was recommended by our taxi driver. The view is fantastic - sits on a hill overlooking Patong beach. Service is nice, professional and polite. Food is average. Our drinks and appetizers were great, but our mains just so-so. It's also pricey for Thai food, but worth the trip if you want something that feels a bit more upscale and has a great view.

The view is good which you can see a great view of Patong beach and the restaurant decoration is good. However, the food is rather expensive and actually not worth. We stayed in Phuket for 5 days and this is the worst we went. The food are just average. Besides, there are many mosquitos flying around us during the meal which are very annoying.
