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.
