All staff went out of their way to make you feel at home and it was a memoriable experience of our trip.

Small intimate quality restaurant serving beautiful fusion of Western with a Thai twist, created by Bart and his team with passion, stunning presentation and attention to detail. My wife had soft shell crab starter with mango and chilli (her words amazing). followed by Rack of lamb with morning glory , sweet potato and red curry', I had Japanese scallops (my words amazing, cooked to perfection) followed by beautiful fresh sea bass.

The after taste that seem to followed each mouthful made us savour every minute of this thoroughly enjoyable meal, one not to be rushed.

Not usual for us to take a desert ....but we were tempted by the chocolate mouse, which was nothing less than divine!

What we loved was that despite eating three courses, which is very rare for us, the ingredients used were so fresh and light with no heavy oils or sauces that not for a moment did we feel overful or bloated!

Highly recommended.

Passa, the restaurant that belongs to Khwan Beach Resort, serves the most delicious dishes we enjoyed during our Thailand trip.
Whether it was for breakfast or dinner, we enjoyed every bite. The menu ranges from typical Thai food to western delicatesses and could definitely be called as "haute cuisine".
Unfortunately, I don't remember all the staff's names. But I would like to give special thanks to the chef Bart who always created amazing dishes and even offered some apatizers. Another special thanks to Pop, the waitress, who always guaranteed a delightful start into the day.

Being a vegan is sometimes a tough chore especially when it comes to fine dining. I was over joyed at the amazing quality of food here. The head chef went above and beyond to cater specifically for my needs. He would discuss some ideas with me at breakfast and prepare the most beautiful dinner meals I think I have had anywhere. The staff are amazing too with a special mention to Eak who was always smiling and beyond helpful. The whole kitchen team were amazing making the effort everytime. The ambience is small but perfect and impeccably clean! I can not rate this restaurant highly enough, definitely worth the effort to make the journey for a beautiful dinner out...please don't miss it. Thanks again for taking such good care of me the food, wine and desserts are so delicious.

Thanks for your reviews about Khwan beach resort and PASSA. It is true that our Executive Chef Bart Van Dyck cares a lot about every guest. He cooks and creates with passion and love for sharing. I think this is one of the reasons why he really stands out... along with other culinary secret recipes that I wont disclose :)
