Food is good!!! Natural fruit juices are awesome!!! Service is really slow they should improve the service, clients shouldn't wait more than 30 min to order, servers are nice but they need to pay more attention to the tables, clean them right away will be nice too! I highly recommend the places because of its ambience and relax feeling!!!

This place was really in quaint setting...but being outdoors brought on several bug bites. The food was delicious. We had the Sweet and Sour Chicken, and it was wonderful.

This small restaurant is right next to the pool, which smells awfully like chlorine. They had many tables with reservations so we had to sit at a high table close to the pool.

We were there for a nice couples dinner. The atmosphere was awesome, with the pool right beside us. The food was average, pad Thai was too sweet and tasted of dirty grill, the green curry was fairly good but very little zip, the sweet and sour pork was the best meal of the night. Would I go back... probably not.

Great change from all the seafood and Caribbean dishes. All 5 of us loved what we ordered and was fairly inexpensive.

This was one of our favorite restaurants, its in close proximity to the beach, good variety and good prices, tips and taxes are included unlike some other places that charge you an extra 18÷ and 10%. You are sitting by the poolside and can go swimming if you choose to.

You can beat the atmosphere of this restaurant. Very zen. The food is not like your typical Thai food- but it was really good and simple. We had an amazing waiter who took very good care of us - we enjoyed the experience very much.

We were so pleased to find good Thai food in the DR! Loved the Thai Seafood Green Curry dish. Lovely atmosphere as it is tucked into a tropical garden area.
