After a long drive on the way to Yala, we were hungry and needed to stop. Our driver selected this place. No doubt because he would have eaten for free. It is a large and impersonal restaurant. Service was glacially slow. Even the curries were poor, let alone the western dishes. I had an episode of diarrhea that night, which... More

We have eaten pasta and calamari. Neither was really bad, more like average food in an average bar. The price was quite high though, in this price range you would expect something really tasty.

The waiter servicing me and my friend has really short memory - I've gone to bring myself a menu twice during the evening, because the guy just forgot about my request for it. Of course, he didn't know that tequila should be escorted by lime and salt, so we've asked him for the both, but received only the first one... More

Lunch with the family was great. Varied menu card, local spicy dishes as well as the European style lunch menu for "picky kids" (French fries, pizza, etc.)

I went there for lunch around 2 pm which is not an unusual hour for lunch. The buffet was more than half empty and the tables had people or were not bussed. I asked one of the waitstaff if they will replenish the food items on the buffet. She said yes and then left. There was not a clean table... More

The food was OK but clearly overpriced for what you get. Definitely avoid the pizza or go somewhere else in the first place.
