We ate here tonight and went away very satisfied. Free salad bar and service was quick and friendly. Lots of dishes to choose from, which were large and tasty. Food and drinks still at a good price, unlike some other places We highly recommend this place.

Visited tonight as a group of 15. Fabulous food and excellent service. All red snapper was done at 200 baht per dish. A few came at 250 baht on the bill but the owner came over and asked why we didn't question it. He then gave us a further discount. We eat a lot of Thai/sea food and this was... More

The food was average and the customer service was terrible. We were polite however the waiter hardly acknowledged or spoke to us even though she/he could speak english.

A fabulous find right on the beach at Karon, in front of the lake, next to MaMa Jin's. It was no trouble for the staff to accommodate our party of 10 people and the service was excellent. The beer and soft drinks were cold, arriving promptly after ordering and the cold hand/face towel on arrival was welcome in the heat.... More

My boyfriend and I got two mains, an entree, a bottle of water and a beer for around 420 bt. We had spring rolls for the entree. Perhaps the best we've ever had! Large portion and very fresh. Mains. A bit bland and we needed to add a fair amount of sauce to make it taste a bit better. Staff... More

Having read other reviews there seems to be more than one Talay restaurant. We intended on going to Mama Jins which is next door, but it was full so we tried here. Glad we did! It's on the beach front near the big roundabout in Karon. My husband and I had chicken red curry and our son had chicken burger.... More

This was the gem find on our ten day trip. Seriously great value for money, with awesome Thai dishes with lovely fresh produce. Catered for the Westerner as well with numerous other dishes. Looks like a café but do not underestimate this place worth the trip, chairs really comfy as well. Staff efficient and food out very quickly.

Thank lind1tob
