Had a pretty decent diner at the Ploy Talay. Unfortunately there was no seating left on the beach, so we sat inside. There were multiple tour buses in that area, some women were spitting on the floor right next to us, so that made for a bit of a bad experience. Food was okay. Difficult to get a server consistently.... More

Nothing great about the restaurant except they have fire show around 2030hrs for 1/2 hr everyday. Not necessary to eat here, u can see the fire show from the beach as well. Hotel is right on the sai kaew beach, they have mats and small table right on the beach and few tables in the restaurant.I don't like sand all... More

We visited the place march 2017. The food was good, but you should be really patient if you want to eat there. We waited for more than an hour for two basic dishes and had to remind the waiters three times before finally receiving our food.

A restaurant on the Sai Kaew beach it is quite a lively place in the evening. They put on a fire display which was generally professional. Most of the seating was on the beach sand with low tables & reclining cushions. Some limited food & drinks--nothing to write home about. Quite a crowd for the fire play.

I have never actually eaten here (although I will in August when I go back). But that is not really the purpose of this Restaurant...it's about the show. Every night, they do a fire show and people from all over the island cram themselves into this venue to watch. Do yourself a favor, book a table, grab a beer tower,... More

Had the tower beer, and great sea food dinner. Suggest to go early 6pm when less people, you can get your order faster. After that , its slow..

This was crowded around 6 - 8 PM. It is sitting on the floor with tiny table restaurant. So please aware of mosquitoes and others. Food is typically thai-food, neutrally taste. Fire show at 8.30 PM was so fantastic! Shouldn't miss it!! I suggest to not sit near the stage, it seems hot and smell (fuel)

You must go to this restaurant for the food, and even more so for the fire show. Amazing things they do with the fire and the finale on the beach is quite a sight. You must get there an hour or two early to get a seat on the beach. We arrived about 30 minutes before the show started and... More

I don't want to be a hater but here is my experience: Bad service Food not fresh (pineapple dish with rice, pranws, chicken) served in like 2min, and cold! They wanted to charge us 20THB for wifi! And finally they just disappeared so we couldn't even get the check so we could get outta there. Very disapointed.

Came here for the fire show but the food is not really good and I got sick. On the other hand the staff is really nice but doesn't speak good English
