Apache is a simple Thai place right next to Haad Yao Scuba. Food is cooked from scratch in the little outdoor kitchen and has much more of the authentic Thai flavours than many of the places on the beach. If you want properly spicy food they will make it for you. Definitely recommended.

Having considered myself to have been somewhat of a conosur of Thai food over the years, l can thoroughly recommend the quality of the food produced at the Apache bar and restaurant in Haad Yao. Sid and Suey run a fantastic restaurant, with a pool table that is open from early evening. The food freshly prepared and cooked by Suey... More

Sunset Bungalows and Apache Bar are effectively the same place (so I'm cheating and copying this review to both!). The Bar/restaurant is behind the tree line next to the road, it's a quiet road so not an issue. The Bar/restaurant plays great music and has a pool table. You can eat indoor or outdoors. Most nights you will find the... More

Small but cosy bar in Haad Yao. The owner was a very welcoming and polite man, his staff were friendly and attentive. They didn't offer food when I went a week ago as its low season so was just serving drinks however food were reasonably priced.

The food is delicious - Suei cooks the best Massaman Curry on Ko Phangan, staff is friendly and the pool table is in good shape. Everything set for a great evening!

In the three weeks that we stayed on the island we frequently hung out at the Apache bar. The Thai food is very good and it's not expensive at all. The vibe is laid back and the owner is fun to talk to. We regularly went there after diving. They also helped us printing our flight reservations since we didn't... More

I recently spent about 3 weeks staying at Sunset Bungalows, often eating and drinking at Apache Bar. My bungalow was very clean, roomy, and comfortable, and was very fairly priced. I never ate anything at Apache Bar that was not delicious! I have has my fair share of Massaman curries, and I would say that Suay's is the best of... More

It didn't meet our expectations. Atmosphere is good, well decorated with lounge area. But that's it. Our curries were not very tasteful, thin/watery and priced at around 130-150 without rice (25bath). Absolutely not worth it. Staff speaks hardly any English, even pointing out the choice of meat on the menu (and understanding what it meant) was a hard task. But... More
