After travelling Thailand for a month I can say that this was the best Thai food I've vere had. Get the Red curry and the whole steamed fish

Hi Sebastian. It's on the main road in the middle of town. If you put 'Charlie and Leks Pai' into google it comes up and you can click on the map on the right. Sorry I can't put the direct map link in this comment for you... More
