Strolled down to The Deck from our hotel, and sat at a nice table in the right corner dowstairs looking straight out over the water.
Mr (Kuhn) Bus looked after us initially then another staff member took over, that was just as good.
A few beers, glass of red, ordered the duck and a couple of other dishes - all to share between the two of us.
Very delicious.

This place rather looks small outside but the ambiance and the service is nothing but EXCELLENT! We were just looking for a small restaurant to have dinner when we walked pass this and we thought of giving it a try... The food, view, music and especially the service are SUPERB! Good job to the Management and staff!

The view is beautiful at The Deck. In the evening the lights of Kamala are a beautiful backdrop to the clean and fresh decor.
Staff dress in white sailor uniforms and the blue tablecloths are inviting.
The menu is Thai fusion so if you strictly want Thai food then perhaps this is not the place for you.
We ordered the deep fried vermicelli and coconut prawn entree to share followed by duck and scallop mains. Presentation was beautiful and the flavours were lovely. My duck was very tough unfortunately but the meal was beautiful to look at and the flavours were good.
Service was attentive and helpful. Prices were reasonable being higher than average around Kamala but the stunning location and presentation was very nice as well as being conveniently located to our hotel.

We didn’t finish the satay skewers, they were dry and either old or undercooked - we couldn’t tell. The fish was mostly batter (think Dagwood dog at the show) and the sandwich was barely passable I’m afraid.

I hesitated in writing this, however for the Aussie price that was paid it should have been a lot better, if the price was 1/3-1/2 lower it would have been acceptable food.

There are a lot of positive reviews so hopefully we just got it at a bad time.


After two deleted posts from the establishment and the owner - it appears the price is for the apparently amazing view.

If you’re not interested in paying a premium for a view, best avoid this place.

Furthermore if you’re staying up the hill (Cape Sienna etc), not only is the view better but the food and service is better again - the price being fairly similar for the items we ordered.

I’m sorry that the owner took my comments personally rather than considering them as constructive.
