Our toddler's margherita pizza was so delightfully crispy-crusted and cracker-like on the bottom with blistered cheesy bliss on top and very tasty sauce. My husband's chicken Pad Thai was not pretty but he says it was fantastic. My very simple mixed salad came with a sweet-ish yogurt dressing that was light and not overly abundant. Just a good drizzle. (I... More

The red snapper in red curry sauce was the best thing I ate during my vacation in Thailand. We also ate yellow curry soft shell crab, and garlic pepper king prawns. Yes, the food was expensive for Thai standards but comparing it to seafood in America, it was extremely reasonable. The prawns were my least favourite item, and also the... More

was here last Tuesday. The food was great. Taste, txture,freshness-spot on. But the service was on the slow side. Furthermore,waiters lack in English proficiency making the dine in less satisfying as we had to keep asking,and explaining what we wanted etc. The pricing was on the pricey side,but still reasonable for what we were offered. Would recommend this to anyone... More

We've been there thanks to lonely planet and TripAdvisor but we were really disappointed. My daughter shrimps were all too cooked, my plate arrived when all have finished and after asking twice. My fish and my son grilled shrimps were really good but wife and daughter dishes were not. Regarding prices, i am sure there are better places.

We had a great meal here. The garlic and black pepper shrimp was amazing, and there was so much leftover that I had it again for lunch the next day.

I'm still dreaming about my meal at this restaurant. I think there are two locations - we went to the one in the town (not next to the pier), but they picked us up from our hotel which was amazing since it was pouring rain at the time. You pick your fish and how you'd like it cooked. I wish... More

Crab is swimming in tank. Great freshness. Expect to pay 5 to 7 usd per crab. Fish and shell fishes are fresh too. Great taste. One of the best seafood places.

Chances are, your fish was still swimming as you walked in the door. Three hungry people sat down for dinner and three very full people left. For me, this was the best seafood restaurant, we had visited, in Thailand. We ordered crab, fish, along with sautéed vegetables and rice. The family style portions were quite large. The restaurant is a... More
