Ive worked and lived in Thailand for some 15 years. This is up there as one of the best places for food ice been to. Amazing authentic dishes with added flavour that makes them a bit unique. You can tell they are top ingredients used. Although the service was Good, the food took sometime to come out but the owner did come over and explain his staff had been out all evening to celebrate NY so gave them benefit of the doubt. Decor and location and views are great. Well worth a try in my book.

This is one hyped restaurant at Koh Chang. I can't understand why? It's great environment and cosy restaurant. But the food is just ordinary tourist Thai food.

First of all, thanks for reviewing us.
We've been running our restaurant for over 11 years now and always try to please our costumers, with both a nice experience and quality food. So calling us 'hyped' and a 'tourist trap' doesn't fit our profile. Our current Thai Chef is with us for over 6 years and does for 99% of our costumers and for us a really good job.
You must be a real foodie and expert in Thai Traditional cuisine to have all this knowledge..
I'm sorry to hear you didn't like your experience with us and I hope you are as critical for yourself as you are to others.

Great lunch, calamari rings and salad for starters; fried rice, prawns, cashew nuts, pineapple in a half pineapple along with barracuda in yellow curry for main course; fresh pineapple juice to accompany the food.

Restaurant is traditional Thai, wood on stilts over the sea, very picturesque with the sunlight sparkling off the sea and a light sea breeze too keep everyone cool.

Menu has many super dishes for western or eastern palates.

Well worth a visit to this end of the island.

We spent Christmas Day here eating my favourite meal so far!!

Was so lovely and relaxing being served our lovely meals whilst dangling our legs over the water. Great shops near by also!

Ok so the location and decor are good and the food is ok although price is high. However, the attitude of the manager (I assume) a weird little guy with dyed hair, was horrible right from the start. I pointed out that my mother's tortilla did not contain potato as advertised to which he started fishing around in her tortilla with her fork to show 2 tiny pieces of potato!! Unbelievable behaviour. Then he threw the fork back on the plate and as he turned away he said "see, has potato ok!?". I said not really ok but he just kept walking. Prior to this, getting the attention of the staff seemed quite difficult despite the fact that the place was nearly empty. This might have been because all the staff decided to eat their lunch together and at the same time! Again a very strange policy for a restaurant. In summary, I expected so much better from a highly rated place on TripAdvisor.
