Lovely meal but we were a little confused by the restaurant name. Service good and with a smile. The best chicken satay we have had in Thailand :o) Very eclectic surroundings and interesting decorations kept us interested and amused. Thanks!

What a gorgeous quirky little restaurant with some really interesting trinkets and nic naks that are all, obviously, recycled. Beautiful little shack of a restaurant, which some would think could be deceiving, but have a go. We ate here twice on our 1 week stay...More
