Good local Thai dishes. Liked the green curry much. Perfect iced coffee. Nice ice cream dessert. The 3 little tables at the back are beach front and offer brilliant view of the water. Staff also accomodated silly requests such as a double espresso and a glas of ice :-)

Menu has a good variety of choice Staff is very nice and flexible to accommodate customers requests. The ambiance is quiet and pleasant. We tried and loved spring rolls, chicken stay, nachos and carbonara pasta

One of the few places open during the rains last week. They were so accommodating and helpful to everyone. Loved their food especially the Piri Piri chicken.

I ate at the Stop one night and enjoyed my green curry with chicken. They do have specials and a full menu. It is conveniently located by the pier. Nice place to get basic, good quality food.

The peri peri baguette and fries was absolutely unreal. We popped into to share a quick bite to eat and ended up ordering same plate of food again as it was soooooo tasty. The health juices are great and the Berry Berry smoothie hits the spot. Give this place a look, you would be mad not to xx

On your arrival at the pier or, to end your day from a great dive. The safety stop has always a welcoming, friendly, calm environment. You must try thier biltong with your drink (like a beef jerky) but thier selection of food is good quality at a modest price to. :-) Enjoy!!

We came here twice and enjoyed it both times. The first time we got pesto pasta and a piri piri burger. Both were nice but were nothing special which is why I only gave it 4 stars. Pasta was 180 baht and burger with chips was about the same. The chips are delicious though, extra crispy. The second time we... More
