If I have to ask 3 times to make my food more spicy, that means this Thai restaurant is not authentic at all. Food in those random local food courts tastes better. For this price range, the food was bland and not fresh. Not acceptable...More

Maybe we're gerring lucky but here but there seem to be some great spots to eat on the west side of the island and this is one of them. Another beautiful spot right on the beach and well executed, delicious Thai food. Highly recommended.
