This is great Thai food full of flavor. Thursday night buffet is exceptional value with a great selection of dishes. Popular with good reason so maybe book ahead.

I walked here with a friend at night, all the way from the fresh produce market. It didn't take too long, but the restaurant is a bit out of the way. The food was really good, and quite authentic, and dishes were packed full of flavour. The service was also great. I went here for dinner, and didn't book ahead.... More

Good place to enjoy thai food in Vanuatu. The food is good but waiting time could be long so better order in advance. The place has a friendly environment and you can enjoy the view of the beautiful blue ocean while eating.

Kesom's is a firm favorite with both locals and tourists in Port Vila. Food is always freshly prepared, tasty and decent sized portions. Service is also really good. Highly recommend this venue to anyone visitng Port Vila.

I enjoyed the Thai duck meal, curry puffs and fish cakes. The staff were friendly and had a great view of Port Vila.

The Kesorn has about as close as you can get to authentic Thai food without going to Thailand. I live in Bangkok so I am spoiled and usually am not very happy with what I get at Thai restaurants in other countries, but the chicken green curry I had was excellent and the food that my friends ordered seemed pretty...

Set up high, Kesorns exotic Thai won't disappoint if you love Thai food. Deliciously flavoured rice paper rolls, larb and green curry are so good you'll want to come back again aaaaaand if you do- make it a Thursday for the buffet dinner at 2800 per adult is a great feast of true Thai flavour and you definitely get enough...

Awesome location - view over the bay is great. Perfect for sunsets too. Food is good, and service is good enough too. They will do veg and vegan options so that helps too. Works for groups or couples.
