Food was medium ok, the view is very good. We ate green curry chicken and honey prawns. Chicken has a weird taste. Prawns were too greasy.

We ate here twice while in Horseshoe Bay and it was delightful. Coconut honey prawns were to die for and so was their coconut rice. My husband had the beef tossed with vegetables and the meat was so tender he loved it. A popular place so make reservations if you want to be sure to have a table waiting for... More

We ordered takeaway, were surprised to still find somewhere that was open as it was around 8:15. The food was amazing and we enjoyed every bite. Wished it wasn't dark so we could explore the location a little more, looks like it would be an excellent location.

A nice clean uncluttered dining area with inside and outside areas that overlook a wonderful coastal view. Entrees and mains were a good size, with well cooked fresh ingredients and tasty sauces. The Thai Chilli Basil Seafood was very tasty, well balanced and the seafood cooked perfectly. The Lychee Ice Cream dessert was disappointing. Plain vanilla ice cream with tinned... More

Ate there twice on a recent trip. Great Thai flavours in a very well manicured tropical setting overlooking a magnificent beach.
