Staff here are lovely and great place right on the beach. Starters were fine but main courses were a let down. Chicken green curry although sauce was ok the meat was nothing like chicken should taste. It was awful and such a disappointment. Other half had beef which wasn't too bad. Wouldn't eat here again as there are far nicer... More

We just had dinner at the Smile Bar & Restaurant. The location is very good and the staff extremely friendly. Always with a big smile. We ate pad thai with beef, which was OK bit rather small. The slightly better dish was the freshly grilled squid, which was tasty. The banana split dessert ended our visit. Not the most memorable... More

The food is also excellent, the chicken skewers were a favourite and the Mai Tai cocktail which were super cheap. The staff were... More

"Smile" is located right on the beach with a stunning view of the sunset if you're there at the right time. You can choose your fresh seafood to be barbecued in front of you or you can pick from an extensive menu of traditional Thai and Western dishes. The food was inexpensive and great as was the service - very... More

This restaurant is on the beach and we had decided to eat here before the weather closed in. They are more an outside restaurant , with limited shelter , but nonetheless they erected large umbrellas to shield us and another table who were having lunch. The food is good wholesome , very flavourful Thai fare! My duck curry had great... More
