Food was very tasty and staff friendly. Good location to catch the sunset. Pricey though. Must come early to get good seats to sunset.

One of the largest of 6 overlooking the beach and therefore with the best chance of sitting close to the waves; such magic with the moon and the lights of fishing boats at sea.

Had their grilled seafood for dinner, with baked pineapple rice, crabs in chilli paste and tom yam soup. The seafood was fresh but the crabs in chilli paste tasted really wierd... the dish had loads of eggs in it! The view was good though, as it was one of only few restaurants right by the beach.

My girlfriend and i stumbled upon a group of restaurants slightly hidden away and just off the main sea road in Ao Nang. They all sat slightly elevated above the sea. Every restaurant had a chilled display of fresh sea food and it was quite a chore to choose one to eat in but we chose Ban Lay. The starters... More
