One time the deep fried Fish was excelent while the second time the phad thai was very poor. Service also very slow and staff unfriendly. In general I don't recommend.

We visited this restraint for the first time this year The location is beautiful and food very good. You do need transport to get there but that is very cheap in Thailand. Look out for the snowman!

The place has one great advantage - the scenery! It's just by the beach, the view and the atmosphere are worth seeing! On the other hand, the menu has a third of the dishes striked out and a third of the dishes with prices doubled...More
