I sadly must say that this is the only thumbs up i can give to this restaurant. The service was slow, even tho the restaurant was not busy. Our server was...

My boyfriend and I had a fabulous time in Koh Tao. We trained at Ban's diving resort and it was completely worth it. Great classes, cool dives. But our instructors Chloe Noel Du Payrat and Darren Schlotter made it that much better. They are so personable, knowledgeable and really made the experience memorable. Would definitely recommend.
