We had a lovely meal here, the setting is great on the beach away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Street with nice calm music it was very relaxing.

The teepees are lovely and it feels like a special meal. We booked earlier in the day after reading other reviews and had to leave a 500thb deposit to reserve the table but there were some walk ins while we were there too so if you haven’t booked, it is still worth a try.

The menu wasn’t huge but enough to choose from, the green curry was delicious and the mixed dana starter was well presented.

Nattapong (maybe Nattapol?) was lovely very attentive and friendly.

As per many hotel restaurants they add the 10% service charge and 7% government tax onto the bill on top of the advertised prices so for a beer, 3 cocktails a starter platter and 2 mains we paid 1800THB in total.

Only downfall is not the restaurants fault but maybe they could add some measures to stop the beach sellers approaching you during your meal.

The ambiance is wonderful. Sitting on the beach with the cooling breeze within a tent like teepee is fabulous.
But neither the food nor the cocktails lived up to expectations. Watery mojitos, smoky morning glory and big shrimps that were dry and doused in garlic. Slightly balanced by a nice green curry. But overall I think this Thai food is for unwary visitors who want the ambiance. Approx £50 for two people isn't bad for the location but you can get better food for half the price at 'local' restaurants further along the road.

It was just a perfect dinner. Very good food, amazing ambiente and friendly service. You can sit at the beach with nice tents and quiet dinner sound.

Stylist decorations, serviced in details and fresh seafood.

The restaurant is managed by a hotel with water front view basically you dine on the beach.

Great service and food along with the perfect location. Well priced not too expensive. Must book first though, cocktails were not amazing for the price.
