While we stayed at the hotel, we ate at this restaurant frequently. The service was great, the food came out of the kitchen in a timely manner and the bar staff (especially Nong) was awesome. The local fresh fish they serve for dinner was delicious, you could not go wrong with what fish you chose. Being a westerner, the Tex-Mex... More

We only ate here, we didn't stay . I try to be as positive as possible as there are a lot of "Nay Sayers" on trip advisor Positive; the chicken quesadillas were nice (quote from my 11 year old) We were a family of 6, 4 x children and 2 x adults. I'm a vegetarian, I ordered the vegetarian fajitas... More

if you are looking for a tasty thai or tex-mex style meal this may be the place to consider. Large portions to feed the family and leave with a smile on your face and a full tummy. Great spot and great beach view.

Very small frontage, hardly any beach, very rocky! Small area for bar and restaurant squashed together. Manageress very pushy, very dissatisfied with the food, she disagreed with our comments ! She should listen to her paying customers, they say the customer is always right, she needs customer service training. Wont be recommending or returning.

I can highly recommend the restaurant. We ate there two times and the food was just delicious. You should try the lap with prawns, masaman curry or some of the other dishes.

Read on several sites that this is the place for fantastic Mexican food. Don't know if we expected too much but we were very underwhelmed by the whole experience. We neither liked the place nor the food. In fact, this was the worst (Mexican or otherwise) meal we had in a long time.

My wife and I ate at this hotel almost every night during our one week stay. The menu is huge, and sometimes a little overwhelming, but we failed to have a bad meal there. Everything was delicious. The Khao Soi curry with noodles was great. The Chew Chi (Spelling?) sauce with fresh fish was literally the best thing I have... More
