2401 is located on a notoriously steep and dangerous section of the road to Haad Rin. Close to Full Moon Party the accident toll on this section of road is unbelievably high. The restaurant affords a birds-eye view of the carnage just below. A table...More

A friendly cafe and restaurant serving authentic Indian, Thai and Western cuisine in a relaxed and easy environment, along with a fully functional bar that offers chilled beers, a wide range of spirits and handcrafted cocktails.

We are open for breakfast from 830AM onwards. Enjoy gorgeous sea view all day around. Great place to watch sunset and sip on happy hour cocktails and other drinks. Freshly brewed coffee and fresh juices, smoothies, milkshakes and lassis - won't make you feel like leaving. After sunset, the mood turns oh so romantic, with cozy seating and table lamps to enjoy those special intimate moments. On a clear night, you will have the stars for cover. Come and visit us and experience the magic.

We cater to vegetarians and vegans, as we fully understand what that means, and hence you will find several vegetarian and vegan items on the menu. We have a separate kitchen where we prepare vegetarian and vegan dishes, and we strictly do not use any fish or oyster sauce or any other powders that contain animal by-products in our recipes. We will tell you which dishes do not contain dairy, so that vegans can trust us and eat accordingly to personal choices they would have decided to make.

We also do our best to cater to guests who have certain food allergies, and we will go out of our way to prepare dishes that are not even on the menu. We promise that you won't be disappointed.

Kindly note that any one-off and/or seasonal closures will be informed through our Facebook page and Instagram account (details of which are on our website), as it is not possible to indicate so in TripAdvisor. Thanks.
