My wife and I are staying here at the Impiana, and we must say that the staff and the food are both fresh & excellent. We enjoyed a focaccia pizza, fresh squid and chicken satays with the best satay sauce ever tasted last night with 3 beers and it cost us 1350 baht. A little more expensive than the street... More

Our first visit was 2 years ago and we were very impressed with the seafood buffet. This trip we decided to go again with 5 others. Again we weren't disappointed. Fantastic variety of seafood not to mention all the other food on offer. Service was fantastic. Wine was abit expensive, but no different from other restaurants. If you're looking for... More

Dear Leah, Many thanks for choosing to return. The team and I are happy to read you enjoyed the food, service and unfortunately the 400% government tax on wine is making it more expensive than we'd like it to be. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to welcome you again another time. Yours, Doeke Bonga General Manager More

Phenomenal dinner. On the beach with a gorgeous sunset. Had both authentic Thai food as well as Italian - one of the best pizzas ever. Great drunk selection and fantastic service. Can't say enough. Definitely worth the try!

Every Tuesday and Friday they have BBQ buffet. The salat bar is so bad, I'm sure the dressing is made by a factory and not the restaurant. The schrimps was not fresh, they have been frozen.
