The restaurant has moved from the beach to town because the government banned beach restaurants in general in this area. The food is still the same genuine delicious thai food. The portions are generous and the staff, not to mention Kai himself, are very friendly and helpful.

Through our stay they remembered us and our son's name. They also do takeout since we had to stay in the resort one night... More
