Located in Karon a small tuktuk drive from patong beach up the hill. My friend has been here before, and suggested we go. Went there last night for dinner. We had massaman curry and Marrinated pork with potato bake. These were very nice and tasty! 99baht cocktails topped it off!! Recommend

We both had the fillet steaks. I had the garlic and my wife had the pepper sauce. Both were out of this world.

We stumbled across this place last night. We only had a margarita pizza as we weren't overly hungry but it was great! I think we'll be going back for a steak!
