I've been in Thailand for 30 days and this was the worst place I've been for sure. The food was bad and came from the microwave (I heard the beeb), the coffee was bad (we thought it would be great because of the name) and the service was bad too. They said nothing and gave me the plate from a... More

I ordered minced pork IN pineapple with RICE. Sounded delicious. But what i got was minced pork WITH pineapple bits and NOODLES. I thought, not that much of a problem, I can eat that one as well. However, the food was disgusting! Because I didn`t have a lunch I was really hungry but I couldn`t eat more than a few... More

Spent 6 weeks in Thailand. This is amongst the best food I found, it has a local flair in the midst of tourist-busy Sairee beach, the food costs half the price compared to the other restaurants - and its thailicious. Try the currys!

Ordered 4 meals with friends and when three arrived with mine still waiting, we questioned where it was. The waiter placed the wrong dish on the table and I said that i had asked for curry with rice not pasta - he took it away and then nothing else arrived. I then went to ask the cook who said I...

Average food but reasonably cheap (for Koh Tao), had the massaman curry which was ok just not amazing! Staff were friendly though and obviously work very hard. Preferred another local restaurant called Lanta which was similar price and delicious!

Just an excellent place. Don't be put off by the slightly down at heel look of the place as the food is sublime. I had Pad Thai there three days running which shows a) my total lack of culinary imagination and b) how delicious it is.

Great good, great prices. The owner is kind of rude but the food is worth coming back for. The masaman curry was the best I've had in Thailand. It's always the first place I stop at when I come to Koh Tao because it's so delicious!

The food here is the standard Thai/western fare but at a cheaper price than most other places in koh Tao. Service is a bit slow but this is probably due to the 'busy'ness as it is always full. If you're on a budget and don't want to break the bank, this is a good go to place, and staff are... More

After having ordered take-away from here for weeks on end and the same thing everyday, yesterday they gave me a Pad Thai! Got back to the resort, opened the take-away and realised what it was I took it back. Then, they tried to tell me I was lying! This is unacceptable. For weeks I have used these guys and not... More
