Service was awful! Not sure if it was a one off based on past reviews but I had a terrible experience. Staff weren't friendly and took ages to pay attention to us.

Could not eat it at all. The other dish was a stir-fried basil chicken. Nothing... More

We have dined at this restaurant several times in our stay in Lamai. (Last year and this year). The service is friendly and normally very fast. Several times I refused to order food before I got my cocktail :-). A normal Thai dish is between 80 -100 THB. In addition there is a pool table in the back, which is... More
