The staff are really helpful and friendly, the open air restaurant creates an authentic atmosphere and looks out onto the bustling streets of montanita. Our food was superb and tasted really authentic (and delicious). Excellent restaurant and would definitely recommend

Thai-inspired food is fresh and delicious. Curry can be cooked to your preference of spiciness. The empanadas are huge and the crust is delicious. They also have simple, classic Ecuadorian dishes as well as great arroz marinero. Eat here! Yumm!
