We've eaten here several times during our weeks stay, the food and the cocktails are amazing! Authentic thai food with an impressive flavour profile, especially the thai curry dishes. Delicious papaya salad as well. We will be coming back here

Great Thai food on the beach. Well priced. Worth a visit if you'd like authentic Thai food on the beach.

We spend the lunch time there switching between eating and swimming. It was July and the beach was almost only for us. The food was good quality for a normal price. Plenty of options. The papaya salad was great and the Thai menu even better

The location is stunning, the music was cool, the owner was friendly and enthusiastic. But service was slow even though it wasn't especially busy. And the food was just ok, nothing memorable between 4 of us.
