We ate here last night and I must say it was the worst service we have ever received in 12 yrs of visiting Thailand. The waitresses were rude.

We stumbled across this place while searching for something a bit more 'sophisticated', a treat...and delivered just that. Simple but stylish decor, staff in nice clean uniforms(a change from the norm) and good menus with enough choice without over facing. Our 9 year old found the kids menu where all the dishes were named after famous cartoon characters from Tom... More

Food is 5 stars, amazing flavours, everything we ordered was extremely tasty. Service was a bit on the slow side but we had much worse in the other restaurants so this one is definitely worth a try.

It took quite a while to choose from the extensive menu in this restaurant however we were delighted with all of our picks. Great seafood, fab starters, good drinks selection.

Had a lovely meal here. Good soups (love my Thai soups) and curries. Service could be better but it's a nice location. Worth visiting once if you're in Karon or Kata.

Based on all the reviewed I read which were either extremely good or extremely terrible I have visited the restaurant hence was staying just fire blocks away.

This was one of the cheaper places we ate during a recent visit and the quality of the food reflected this. Whilst the decor is nice, less effort seems to have been put into the quality and taste of the food, which was decidedly bland.
