Maybe it's understaffed. Maybe they get busier than they expect. Maybe rotating the resort staff across all roles isn't the best plan but the service does leave a lot to be desired. When there's less than 20 patrons surely it shouldn't be more than an hour between ordering and eating ? The food's good without being great, menu quite diverse... More

Yet another of the cheap and cheerful places to eat. The food is ok just nothing special but if you are here on a budget would probably be the place for you. We used it to grab a spot of lunch and beers, think it worked out at £4 a head for all

There are so many tiny restaurants along the road in Kata Beach and we weren't sure what to expect but we were not disappointed. We ordered Phad Thai and Sweet and Sour Pork. Was very tasty and we'll definitely go back again. Friendly staff and ice cold beers!

We ate here twice while we were staying at the hotel. We were not impressed. The first time we walked in we were totally ignored so found our own way to a table. They finally served us and we had a fairly unremarkable meal. The food is inexpensive. The second time we tried the seafood barbecue. The seafood was disappointing,... More

Food was fabulous so was the service. Staff very friendly. Food was delicious hot and very tasty. The decor is nostalgic with heaps of old photos of Thailand. Along with objects from during the war, which all add to the ambience. A very enjoyable meal indeed

After three weeks of being in Kata Beach we were finally lured into this restaurant. It looked crowded so we decided to give it a shot. By far the dirtiest floors and tables we have seen so far. The service was almost non-existant and the food was super dull. My husband and I ordered two sodas, sweet and sour chicken... More

Very nice fancy place. Terrace overlooking the sea. Average food. The buffet is totally overpriced. 790 for average food no much selection. Especially the seafood which is what attracted me: just prawn mussels and squid. I should have tried a la carte but dont think I will come again.

We've been to over a dozen restaurants and stalls in a week in various parts of Thailand. And this was worse than any here or in the U.K. I've been to. Spicy grilled pork salad was tough and boring. No flavour, no atmosphere, no nothing! Also the fish on ice out front didn't look fresh. I mentioned the eyes were... More
