From the best of Thailand, quality product, good presentation and very attentive employees. They care about hygiene and to create a quiet atmosphere enlivened by good music. It is worth the price difference with other restaurants, this is justified. Payment by card 3% usual

Description
Gourmet and authentic Thai restaurant with a view through our fine art Photo Gallery. Widely acclaimed as being among the best Thai food in Thailand. We open at 12pm and remain open all day until 11pm (be aware that we may close early around 10.30pm if the restaurant is quiet). Authentic Thai food with true Thai flavour using only the freshest ingredients and the finest cuts of meat, fish and seafood. We also have a small selection of vegetarian dishes and an extensive wine and designer cocktail list. We offer a fine dining experience in a creative atmosphere providing the highest standards for a discerning clientele. Please note that we are not a budget backpacker restaurant, we offer the best quality authentic Thai food around, in the best restaurant on Koh Tao. Reservations are welcome but please be aware that you may still have to wait in the bar for your table to become available. Should you arrive late it is quite possible that your table will be no longer be available.
