The western manager kept warning us that the food would be authentically spicy, and he was right! Apparently some people are surrounded by this! Good Thai menu with real fresh cooking by Thai chefs seen through the hatch.

It was really good - food and service. Overlooking a paddy field made it even more perfect. It is truly a treasure and we will be back when we are next back to the island!
