We visited the restaurant once during our holiday. I was immediately put off by the overcrowded fish tanks, and was hopeful that I could have something off the menu that I didn't see swimming around before eating it. I thought the menu choice was poor and the food very expensive. There is a show in the evening, which is entertaining.... More

Good authentic Thai food. Fresh seafood, good service. Price is very expensive. They will weigh the seafood you order and will tell you the price before proceeding. Pay attention to it. They will not cheat you but you have to realise what you order and how much your total bill will add up.

The restaurant is pretty big and right when you get there you can see all the aquariums with huge fishes and lobsters welcoming you, then you get to the big restaurant all typically decorated. For us it was lunchtime so we wanted to seat next to the sand to see the sea while we where eating. Food was nice but... More

The fishes are expensive but truly amazing flavours. Warm and friendly staff. It's right near the beach where there's parasailing and jet skiing going on and probably horse riding too.

We were here for dinner. The restaurant is just next to Holiday Inn.Food served in delicious and tangy. Ambience is good. Prices are competitive.

Great food & cabaret, but needs a real tart up, lacks intimacy & warmth. Good for large parties, birthdays or coach party. Always enjoy the food.

A group of us had dinner there after a conference at one of the beach hotels. The view was great. However the food was very ordinary. The sea food was not well cooked and the service (mainly provided by foreign staff) was poor. The food felt like it was mass cooked, and tasted bland. 2 or 3 courses were served... More

This place has no essence of Thai food although it is supposed to be Thai. They don't even have any of the Thai curries in the menu. Bogus place and bad food. Had a stomach upset after lunching here.

This was without doubt the worst restaurant we have ever been to! The venue looks great by the sea front and live fish to choose from. My husband ordered squid and I ordered a couple of prawn dishes and a bottle of wine. We were very surprised when it all arrived five minutes later! It was all disgusting and totally... More

Whilst the food is great, albeit expensive, the service is lacking and the staff there really do not care if you eat there or not. The location is excellent, right on the beach front.
