If you want fresh home cooked Thai food or western food this place is just great. The staff are friendly and cannot do enough to please. Nothing fancy but Thailand at its best. Graham & Dawn England

Great lunch at Zenzibar. Fantastic welcome. Friendly staff. Delicious lobster. Clean toilets. Staff happily let us use their restaurant as our base camp for a day at the beach.
