The pad Thai also had some really nasty bits of chicken which had grissle and other nasty things which I haven't a clue what they are. I had the unpleasant experience of chewing several pieces like this. Put... More

Tasty variety of Thai/English/Mexican/Seafood, right on the beach, get there for about 7pm on a Monday and enjoy the Fire Show while you eat. Reasonably priced.

Went for the fire show, but would go again for the food. Best fried rice, I've ever eaten, and great basil chicken, there was eight in our group, the pizza was thin crust and good, the BBQ chicken was moist and above average, but the Thai food was exceptional.
