I think the reviews are a bit harsh, we visited twice and while it was variable, the meals were tasty and well presented. I'm not quite sure why people are complaining about cost as it is the same as all the other restaurants around it. Worth a night out

Bit disappointing. Fairly bland for Thai food. Food served cold--in more ways than one. Service unbelievably bad. Nice terrace. Same seating and furniture as Italian Casa Mio next door. Difficult to find taxi unless on beach road.

OK, nothing great but if you need a fix on Thai food, can consider this place. Taste is more suited for locals and the Phad Thai is worth trying. Tom Yum is below average and could do a bit more spicy and more lemongrass. Steamed Thai style fish is not fresh and taste was so-so, cannot understand why glass noodles... More

I lived three years in Thailand as hotel trainer and food and beverage director. I have also consulted few Thai restaurant openings in China. Thai food is one of the cheapest simplest healthiest food on earth. There is no reason to have it so expensive in sanya unless you match it with decor ambience and service of certain level to...

Had the best Phat Thai meals we have ever had, and that includes lots in Thailand and around SE Asia... Ben and Joey (two of the new owners from Shanghai) provided excellent service and the food was outstanding!!! Reasonably priced, terrific value... highly recommended!!!

We went here tonight. The service was kind of slow, but also as they had a very big group coming in. the service was friendly, but only one man (had the feeling he was the manager or the owner) spoke English. Price is reasonable and the food is not bad, but it has nothing to do with authentic thai food.... More

This Thai restaurant is worth a visit. Good drinks, menu, drinks, hospitality - especially with the owner at the shakers. Language barrier though, but common in a place like sanya. Menu is in English, which works. Great to sit outside

It is really good restaurant (if you like Thai cuisine) with good coctails (try mango/martini if you like light coctaails).

So. We tried to find it for 2 hours. One problem TripAdvisor are wrong in placement. You could find it via Casa Mia place only. Food is pretty good almost like Thai. Prices a bit higher than in another places. Result: if you'd like to spend a good time and reach non-chinese cusine, you R welcome.
