Located on the waterfront with plenty of different restaurants around it. We tried this one and went back every time we could. Its amazing Thai food, (Green curry is a must) They have happy hour with beers and cocktails which is joy!

We went to eat there one night and there was a horrible smell coming from the water, turned us off the food.

We stopped for lunch with the kids; very expensive and unappetising food was served... I could believe that we paid RM161 for our first meal in KK. Overrated.

We enjoyed a beef Phad Thai and a chicken green curry and found the portions to be generous. Food was decent. Lovely view at sunset as it is along the waterfront.

We had a good experience here. The service is just average. However the food was great. They serve fresh food with a great view of the ocean. We feel that they had a very good Tom Yam in KK. Would recommend this place to others.
