Visited twice during our holiday in Gambia once was for the buffet that we hadn't tried before which was a fantastic experience and superb value at D495 pp. plenty of choice and food cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommend a visit here as staff always excellent and food to die for.

Service was good, the food I enjoyed. Would of liked a little more choice... More

Gambian experience ruined by a rip off restuarant, disgusting food, worse english manager and certainly not thai food. Infact i would not even call it food. Avoid tourist, you have been warned

Enjoyed the food here reasonable in price. Wasn't authentic Thai food but flavour some and enough of it. Complementary prawn crackers to start reasonable price.

Went for the buffet evening on a Thursday evening, had to book as its very popular. Food was plentiful but average. Outshone by its sister restaurant next door
