Cute simple place. Very friendly staff. The quality of food is good. We visited this place several times and sometimes took the food away. We liked to take seafood and watermelon shakes.

Went there twice. First time with a friend, second time solo. The second time was lunch time, the restaurant was not as packed as before. I ordered a fried rice with prawns and it was good. The crew were so friendly and kind. They even offered me a free plate of fruit!! Highly recommend!!

Very traditional, quite cheap but basic thai food. Meals came to the table luke warm which was disappointing. There are better options along this road in Karon.

Wanted a quick snack of pad thai (usually paying 40-50BHT in Bangkok, didn't want to be ripped off the 180-200BHT surrounding places seemed to be charging. Pad thai here was 80BHT, and pretty tasty - a little sloppy but by far one of the better places I've been to in such a tourist trap area. Would go back.

Was talking to a guy at the beach who recommended Ying so I went there with my friends later that night. I was really impressed by the Thai food (I don't eat fish or seafood otherwise I would have ordered that). I ordered beef in sour sweet sauce and it was the best dish I tasted so far in Thailand....

Clean and delicious foods are available. And prices are very value of money. They bring us a fruit plate end of our meal.

The cafe (all cafes are evidently called restaurants in Karon) looks pretty like all others, but service and meal quality is supreme here. Over our stay, we tried Ying, then 5 other restaurants, and eventually settled on Ying again. The prices are reasonable, and they offer free vegetables and fruit to whoever makes an order. The menu includes both Thai... More

We chose Ying because it was busy - surely a good sign. And it certainly was good. We ordered a mixed seafood starter to share. It was a lightly battered mixture of fish and shellfish, and some deep-fried green Thai leaf/herb - delicious! I would have no hesitation in recommending both the restaurant and the seafood. We'll be back.

Lovely little Thai and sea food restaurant. Good food and friendly staff. If possible have a table by the road if you enjoy the lively city life.
