“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

On a beautiful beach, this restaurant has a gorgeous setting, stylish but casual, great food & drinks and nice staff. The tables at the front overlooking the bay are best.

“Nice but expensive”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

A nice beachfront restaurant but expensive. At peak season, difficult to get à table and the personel was not willing to helt out.

Very nice setting on the beach & we had lunch here twice due to the location. Unfortunately poor service and food was average.

“Charmy but expensive”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Same same but different lives on its charm, wonderful view and location by the beautiful Kantiang Bay. The food is good and even great (Som Tum for example) and portions are big, but the price has gone up too much making it not worthwhile anymore. Too bad.

“Great location not sure about the food”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were staying at the Pimalai and decided to go to Same Same as some friends had recommended it a couple of months ago. The atmosphere is great and the menu seemed good but both of us had really dodge stomachs the next day - coincidence maybe but not sure we would go back.
Lots of comments on here about the staff, they were not rude to us but they were not friendly. There are so many other places that you can go - I would avoid this one and try some of the others.
