Said they served Thai lemon tea , so we went in and decided to eat . Ordered a tuna baguette and enjoyed it. The tea was my favorite -- have had difficulty finding it in Koh Chang. Good service and friendly staff.

The restaurant choices and n Koh Chang are plentiful. You could stay here a month or two and never run out of new places to eat. This restaurant was good enough to go back to, but I probably won't because it wasn't great. Good service. Pleasant atmosphere.

Ate here several times when I stayed in Kai Bae. The food is good and reasonably priced. They have a selection of Thai and European food. A safe choice in Kai Bae.

Amazing seafood. The owner speaks both English and Russian and will tell you honestly which fish is the best and freshest, as well how to best have that particular fish cooked. The attention to customer wishes and detail was the highest of all the non-expensive places that I have ever eaten at in Thailand. You can tell the owner himself... More

In this restaurant you can try the best shrimps in garlic and butter! I didn't eat such tasty shrimps nowhere in Thailand! Other dishes were also good, but shrimps were the best! I like this cafe and wanna come back to eat something tasty again!
