Had to queue for a table as was very busy but worth the wait. Good food and good prices. Service was bit slow but didn't matter as we watched the world go by.

Had food here a couple of times on our visit, the food is excellent. The tempura squid is the best ever! The restaurant is simple and looks a bit low market and the staff are there to take the orders and bring you the food. Don't expect any chit chat. The food is one of the cheaper options around town... More

Tried the bbq squid, fried seabass in red curry and fried prawns. The seafoods are fresh and value for money. Price is lower and quality better as compared to the restaurants around Kata beach.

Great food, but always busy. We waited about 15minutes but it was worth it. Rather hard to find. Even though it is on the main drag the sign is up high over an awning. You have to spot it before you get to it. Certainly one of the places to try in Karon Beach.

Only open from 2pm, not sure but maybe doing a proper lunch service + that massive dinner service would be making too much money lol Full house from 2pm while other places are empty says a lot. Lobsters r super cheap and amazing quality!!! If u go, don't get the cheaper items with carbs to fill u, just go all... More

Foods is absolutely fantastic. Less smell of traditional spice so everyone can enjoy. Moreover today I saw when a russian couple found they left wallet in hotel, one of staff gave a motorbike riding. How friendly they are.
