Called for takeaway. When we got there they had made one of our meals wrong. We had to wait while they made the correct one. Apologies but no attempt to give money off or give a free appetiser - what I would usually expect with a mistake on the restaurants end. The one we wanted egg added too had very little egg, the food was average, not the best not the worst but overall a pretty poor experience.

Always been good, great views, lovely people.

The men's bathroom is downstairs. But I can live with that.

I made an advance booking for a group of twenty for a mid-week dinner. All agreed that the starters and mains were absolutely delicious - Many Thanks to the Chef.
However, the evening was marred by :-
1.Supply of wine glasses proved farcical.
2.Extreme difficulty in getting the attention of the waiting staff.
3.Staff had a poor understanding of the menu.
4.Desserts not offered.
5.We were told that coffee, special coffees and liquors were not available!!
6.Staff were confused with what to charge.
We expected that with the advanced notice of booking for a large group we would be served by experienced staff. They gave us the impression they did not want us back. Conversely the group are not particularly keen to return. What a shame for a local restaurant with such a great view and such great food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A great little Thai restaurant with magnificent views over Arkles Bay beach.
The staff are lovely and a good variety of traditional Thai meals. It is a narrow restaurant but still has a feel of being roomy.
The view is seriously stunning as the restaurant sits high up on a cliff. It is a local favorite of mine. Very casual and comfortable.
