Nice little place, was recommended by the staff at our hotel. Always busy and quiet small so space is limited. Very cheap and good food.

We saw the huge line ups for this restaurant and assumed it must be good food. Trip Advisor did have some terrible reviews but we thought how could that be with so many people waiting to eat there. We should have listened to Trip Advisor! The food was not great and the jumbo prawns were not edible as they were... More

We decided to visit this restaraunt as there was always queues awaiting tables. Food was OK and cheap. Drinks were moderate price. Overall nothing special. A large sign says they are moving to Kata soon.

We walked past on our first night and noted people queuing, and every night after for that matter, always a very good sign! Get your number, sit or stand outside for anything between 5-25 mins and watch the world go by! The place is what it is, not high end fine dining by anyone's standards and the service is typically...

We came here last night due to the high reviews. I really don't understand how it was rated 4 out of 5 stars. Like everyone, there is a wait but it was pretty quick. We were seated and soon after, we were asked to move because they wanted to use our table to accommodate a bigger party. I can now... More

When you want to eat Thai go to the Red Onion. You will never eat better garlic pepper shrimp. The lineup you will encounter is a sign of the quality of the food.
