This restaurant is part of the Centaro Grand Resort. If you don't feel like the trek to get off this site it is one of a few choices of restaurants within the resort. It is expensive and portion sizes are not generous. Much better and cheaper options are available if you have the energy to go up and over the Monkey Trail into Ao Nang

all the restaurents of this resort are a must try. Its an open air restaurant and serves good authentic Thai food. Do expect some mosquitoes during the nite dining but get some free lemongrass spray from the waiters for protection. Every Friday nite, they hold a buffet and be entertained by some beautiful Thai Cultural dancers...a must see.
the hospitality of susi and sakkie are awesome.

Such a awesome restaurant. The food is awesome. Everything we ordered was so delicious. The pineapple rice, spaghetti Pad kee maow, green curry and so many other Thai delicacies. The highlight of this restaurant are two staff members who made it so special forbid every time we went. One of them was Susi and the other one Sakkie. Loved these two. Their hospitality their service was awesome.

we ate here two nights - the night we arrived (it was late) and the night before we left (it was convenient). The food was average Thai, nothing special, and the service indifferent but ok.
