There are several better places to go. Food was okay, but peicey compared to the quality, probably on account of the main street location. Visit Kalika (far from this one) or Two Chefs (close by but more pricey) instead. :)

Friendly staff. Food was very good. Had prawn green curry. Sauce was just spicy enough so cleared the plate. Tasty vegetables and spaghetti cooked nicely. Enjoyed it.

As most of you know, eating in the resorts can be quite expensive, especially with a family. Decided to give this place a try after a recommendation from another guest at the resort we were staying at. Ordered a few dishes, red duck curry, chili chicken with cashew nuts, pineapple rice, mixed fruit smoothies, spag bol and of course a... More

The first meal we had at Karon beach was at this little gem. Had the Phad Thai, chicken with cashew and prawn fried cake, all were quite tasty. The waitress was a young girl who was very helpful who recommended I try the phad thai in a mix of rice and noodles and recommended what sauces to put etc. Very... More

Cheap and relatively cheerful but the food reflects the price. Not above average for this price range with standard Thai dishes that are nothing that you will not find in many other places. Free salad bar was OK but not a reason to visit compared to other places close by (shredded carrot and a bit of lettuce). Not especially clean... More

Ate dinner here based on recommendations read here and was not disappointed. Food was full of flavour and so cheap. The prices around this area are insanely cheap and great portion sizes. Very friendly and polite staff also.

We had 20+ people and Ying accommodated us easily and with a smile. Food was not as spicy as we like, but I am sure we could have asked for more spice. Good prices and friendly service.

Walked past The Red Onion which had a line up waiting and stopped here. What a great decision that was. Excellent staff and service, food was great. Fried noodles with chicken and veggies was one of the best we have had this trip. Chicken and cashews was also lovely. My husband had fresh squid cooked in a sweet and sour... More

We went to yings twice in September 2016. Both times two of us are starters main courses sides and drinks for under 1000 baht... 20 pounds. It's not the cleanest restaurant in the world. The table cloths appear unwashed. And the food is OK but for the money one of the better ones in Karon.
