Seen the chickens on the spit roasts and looked good. Ordered half chicken and potatoes. Chicken arrived. no potatoes. asked and a cold one was brought to me. Dips provided had been used and as you could see where they had been dipped and messy. Asked for fresh new which they did bring. Chicken was dry. Cost baht.

There are a number of restaurants on Kamala Beach that offer a near identical menu. We tried a couple at random, and this one stood out for us. Their thai food was good (and very reasonably priced for the area), but their Grilled Squid was quite simply the best we've ever had. Very fresh and perfectly cooked. On our last... More

Wouldn't eat here again as there are far nicer... More
