“Great food, great setting, not bad value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

You order from the bar along with the takeaway people and compete with the phone ringing-in more takeaway orders. The menu is big enough to give choice but not so big as to make you think of freezers and microwaves. You sit out at a picnic table on the beach and they bring the food to you. BYO beer and wine are available at the small shop (open to 9pm) 30 yards away (no corkage charge). I wish we'de been staying longer so as to eat here again - it was a real find.

“Good food, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Would agree with all the reviews here. This is great find - just so beautiful to enjoy good thai food whilst sitting right next to the water. It was reasonably quick as I was in quite sharp (just after 6pm) and I got a table to myself (working here so sad loneful dining!) without anyone needing to share. Food was really good - but the reason you come here is the atmosphere/location.

Everyone seemed to have planned ahead and brought their cans of beer/bottles of wine - perfect!

“Good food, long wait”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

The location, food and the price are all very good but on a sunny day you will have to wait hours to get your food.

Yes it is a shed on the beach but the food was amazing and the view along the beach was gorgeous even though it was raining.

“Amazing food, enjoyed it despite the wait, very busy.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Great beach setting, food was superb and cheap too.
Make sure you listen out for the waiters calling your name when your food is brought out.
It was so busy that we had to wait a long time for our food, but the atmosphere was great and people were chatting away to fill the time.
Would come back here for sure. Large portions, cooked to order, to your desired spice strength.
