Reviewed 12 January 2014

We had 3rd time a great time there. Living just beside the famous Liberty, one of the greatest dive-spots in the world.

“Great view and great food”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

We had lunch after 2 dives, the service was friendly and fast. We had thai green curry, prawns and chicken on ginger. Portions where adequate, food delicious and very reasonable - we will go back! The view over the ocean from the upstairs deck is great!

“Go there for the view”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

It's nothing special really but could just be because they had no fresh fish the day we decided to visit the place.

That being said they know their local dishes! The sate ayam was perfect!

Thank you very much that you took your time to make a report about our restaurant.

We apologize that we didnt have fresh fish when you came. But when the fisherman dont go out for fishing we can not sell..... What can we do???? Sorry....

But you say you liked our food very much and you recommand to visit us. Means we can not understand your rating from 3 points only, when nothing went wrong!!!!!

Anyway: Thanks that you took your time to recommand our place and that you visited us.

“Reasonably priced for Tulamben”
Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

I can recommend the Babi pelecing, it is such a tasty sauce that I returned the following night for another helping. Sadly a different chef didn't have quite the same heavy hand with the sauce. Pity, I could have quite happily had the sauce on its own!! Great view right on the shore.

“Original Thai food”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

We loved the restaurant first of all because of the location. Its amazing to have the meals direct in front of the ocean and listen the waves and not the traffic. But thats not all. We liked all the food they served to us (including potatoes salad with bockwurst). But we really loved the Thai Food which they have for special of the day or on request. Go for the green curry or "Nasi Goreng Thai Style". Really authentic because we listen Suci got cooking class from a Thai Lady. And the Tom Yam better than in Thailand. May be we should make holidays in Thailand ;-) but the diving in Tulamben is amazing and better.
