The mermaid has an extensive menu with a good variety of Thai and European food available. The staff are friendly and helpful. The chefs are really good and produce tasty hot food night after night.
We were going to try other restaurants, but after the first meal there we decided to make it our restaurant of choice as we felt nowhere else could possibly do better. We were in Thailand for a month and ate there all but three evenings and enjoyed every meal. We had no problems with incorrect orders and no mistakes were made on our bills.
We have holidayed in Thailand for many years and can truly say this is the best food we have had.
If you are staying at the Regent Chalets, Regent Hotel it's the first restaurant on LHS as you enter the village or from the Novotel turn right and it's the last restaurant on RHS. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

The food was fine but in no way out of the ordinary. The service was good and the staff were lovely. Overall we were looking forward to eating there and although not disappointed we were not blown away either.Prices were average.

Seafood was very good and fresh. Their strengths seem to be Thai food and seafood in general. It's low season but we were the only ones in the restaurant, which was odd for a Friday night.

Having dined there many times over the last 5 or 6 years, I can honestly say that it can be very good and it can be very bad. I suspect it depends who is cooking your meal. There are some dishes which can be more or less the same every time, like the Penang curry and the battered prawns, but the stir fries can vary enormously from one day to the next. Generally the staff is attentive, but then again it depends who is on duty that night. Mistakes are often made on your bill, and you may not get the beer you ordered. But then that is Thailand, you cannot expect the same level of service as in London or Paris. As far as the restaurants are concerned in this village, Mermaid is one of the best, and their prices have remained more or less the same for years. So give it a go and keep your fingers crossed that you are there on a good day.

We went to the Merdaid while staying at Cha Am Chalets, the atmosphere was great as were the staff. We had green curry soup it was not the best we had eaten in Thailand and was not very hot even though we asked for it to be cooked to Thai taste and not European. Would not eat there again!
