I was alone and just wanted to have a drink, write in my diary and eat some quality food and I was not disappointed. Everyone looked happy. Actually the best Mexican I've had throughout my... More

We chose this place thinking we could get a good steak and ribs. .. A bit of home food. However the plates were rather small portions for the price and the food was NOT good.

Good food - had a pie and chips with gravy for the first time in 11 months of living in SE Asia - and a good cheap pint. We ate here two/three times as our teens loved the western food. They had a stream of happy looking guests staying at the rooms. Lovely friendly European owner (actually his father) was... More

They have a large menu with western food and thai food. Everything is good. Highly recommend the Ship Inn. A little hard to find, small street behind Pizza Company restaurant.

We ate here last night and the food was great, there was plenty of choice and staff were attentive. The food poisoning I got off the chicken enchilada was not nice at all and resulted in a day in bed. My boyfriend had the chicken fajita and was fine though so just bad luck I think. I had the guacamole... More
