Went here for dinner. Had chicken wings for starters; always worrying when they arrive in a few mins. They tasted a little weird. Had chicken fajitas for main; enough meat but not enough salad. Average meal really, many betters places in Lamai.

The Restaurant is a very nice place where u can enjoy food in outstanding quality. Especially the steaks are very good and the - very friendly - owner also explained why that is so: Unlike the other Thai-Restaurants they chose the quality of the meat themselfes and therefore the steaks are just better. Its is true and it is affordable... More

We went to this restaurant for BBQ. We were seated and served quickly. Food was good - several types of meat, vegetable salads, salsas... Interior was nice and clean and prices were reasonable. BBQ all you can eat for 290 TBH.

There is steak,chicken breast,pork steaks,sausages,tuna and kebabs-accompanied by baked potatoes and a variety of side salads/garnishes-for 290 Bhat,this is great value. OK,the cuts of meat are not the 'prime cuts' -at this price they would make a loss-but the food was tender&tasty. Two minor negatives; The meat,once cooked is put in an unheated tray,so a couple of my bits of... More
