Cocktail selections complement the international meals – or an extra one to blur the bad music humming in the background. This small restaurant offers for its guests a wide selection of simple Thai dishes plus seafood and a few international dishes. The menu is keenly priced and suitable for those on a tight budget.

Fried Shrimp in Garlic Sauce

Chicken Coconut Soup

Tips for you

  • Food quite spicy so say you want less spicy or you will be looking for a jug of water.
  • You should note that you have to get a number and queue on the main street untill you get your seat.
    Things to do
  • Bathrooms just before the kitchen so you can glimpse in. Word of advice - if you wish to enjoy your meal - avoid the bathrooms and sight of the kitchen.
    Things to do
  • If you order crab - you handpick your crabs at the storefronts and they weigh it for you to make sure you are okay with the price.
    Things to do
  • They don't take bookings so go early if you don't want to wait.

We were told of this place by some people from our hotel and we were happy it did not disappoint. We arrived and we were not aware you had to get a number so a few people got ahead of us when we realized we collected out number 29, orders were currently on 25 and it took about 30 minutes to be seated this was at approx 7.45pm. We ordered one side dish, a dish each and a rice to share and it was a huge amount of food we were stuffed and could not finish - we also had 2 rounds of drinks. Food is a very reasonable price as are drinks. We enjoyed everything we had. While we were eating we hear the lady advise the wait was now 1 hour. Our bill was 1100 baht inc service (approx £22). There was no air con all seating outside with fans.
