Service was excellent, drinks were not watered down, and some of the best grub on this little stretch of beach.

The food here is tasty and filling. The Crab Rangoon appetizers are to die for. The Pad Thai and the curries are quite delicious. The staff is courteous and friendly. Definitely going back for more!

The food is really top notch. I ate here twice, and both times I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I had the lettuce wraps (delicious but VERY messy....) and peanut curry bowl. Not that strong with curry, super tasty with peanuts. The staff were friendly. They...were busy and so the service was a little slow, but overall I'd eat here all the time if I lived in Dominical.More

I very rarely write negative reviews, but I showed up by myself for dinner as my wife was meeting friends. There were 4 or 5 empty tables, including a two seater right next to me. The waiter told me I could not have a table...and my order must be to go. Very uncalled for especially when there’s a number of open tables. I’ve never been turned away from any restaurant simply because I came by myself.More

We had a group of 10 for dinner and were quickly accomodated. This is an open air place with a nice breeze. The food; Amazing. Lots of great choices. Drinks are better than amazing, great flavors. The Wi-Fi is also very good and reliable.

Very friendly staff, and chill ambiance that's still attentive and professional. We are always searching for vegan options for my husband, meat options for me. We found the best mix of both here. Appetizers were made to order and delicious. We both had pad Thai...(chickpea and chicken) that was excellent. Try the jalapeño coco cilantro sauce. It's amazing. Sadly needs to be refrigerated or I would take some home! Oh, cocktails are divine. I ordered a second, in a go cup, and brought it to the beach for sunset.More

We tried this restaurant and enjoyed the curry. Nice change of pace from local cuisine we have been eating. Our friends had the chicken entree and said it was good.

Service was friendly and prompt, food came quickly. Spring rolls were from frozen, papaya salad had none in it, just big chunks of bok choi dressed with lime and sesame oil, pretty poor to say the least. Got some cock and bull story why from...waiter and kitchen!! Red Thai curry was good as was the Satay curry. Not too expensive but wouldn't return.More

This was our favourite place in Dominical during our 6 night stay. We went three times. Loved the happy hour 2 for 1 cocktails, our favourite was the peanut satay salad and peanut satay bowl. I recommend.

The space itself is a cool place to spend an hour with positive staff and a decent drinks menu. The chicken wings are an absolute delight. The spring rolls were blah, the curry watery and lacking any depth and the pad Thai is a total...mush.. these dishes miss the mark so badly. I would really suggest going here for chicken wings and a drink, the rest I would unfortunately not recommend.More
