Although this restaurant isn’t on the beach or main road I would strongly recommend a visit. They have a lovely garden setting and the service is great, really friendly team. We tried a number of dishes across several visits and all were faultless, dishes such...as Tom Kha Gai and Penang curry were the best we had anywhereMore

This highly rated restaurant away from the main road in Lamai deserves the accolades thrown it's way. It is unpretentious in that way that neighorhood restaurants that earn their respect are. We had the prawns, a tom kha, and the best paenang curry I've tasted...in the three years I've lived in the region. It's nice to see family businesses earning their keep serving local cuisine amidst the ocean of burger and rib joints popping up in busy Lamai.More

Must go with friends and enjoy this little gem. Great tasting food and kids loved the views. This is a great photo op location. Not great toilets but it is meant to be rustic in feel.

A little bit aside from the city center a very good restaurant with a traditional Thai food which was delicious. Don't forget to ask about Coconut liquer as a digistive recommended by Stefan, the owner of restaurant.

We've spent a perfect dinner evening in this lovely resaurant: Romantic and very cozy atmosphere with a warm light in a garden with a few private dinner-corners under little huts. The service was so friendly and polite. The quality and taste of the meal (starters:...tempura squids, spicy papaya salad, main course: fried noodles thai style chicken, thai curry chicken, dessert: fried ice cream) was delicious, I would order it all over again. And the price is even lower than in the restaurants in the main road in Lamai. We will come back in the next days. M&R from SwitzerlandMore

I would have given this restaurant 3.5 stars if there was the option. The setting and service was very good, we were in a private hut and had the degustation menu, a carafe of wine and 2 waters which came to around 1800baht which is...quite expensive for Thailand. The reason I haven’t given the restaurant a particularly good rating is because I found that the food wasn’t very authentic. The spring rolls and satay chicken are clearly bought in with a sweet dipping sauce. The menu seemed to cater more for the western palate rather than being authentically Thai, nothing was spicy despite there being Tom yum soup which we specifically asked to be spicy. The food was tasty but not quite up to the hype of some of the other reviews here.More

The pool makes this different. Food generous. My green thai chicken was authentic and hot. I found the staff friendly, the manager making a point of introducing himself was nice. I was not blown away; others say this is the best thai food on the...island: I doubt that. Bathroom clean, if typically simple.More

Catch a taxi, it's a little out of the way and all the taxi drivers know it. If your going with kids take their swimmers as there's a small pool they can use.
