My daughter and I ate dinner here during our trip and we weren't impressed. Mediocre service, food, and ambiance. Typical Kata beach tourist restaurant - nothing special. I wouldn't recommend or go back.

Great little bar and fantastic Thai food and every sport channel you can imagine all in all well worth a visit.

Great place to relax, but also to have a great time with some sports on. Amazing food and great service, who is on point. Many places you feel like just another customer/guest.. at the tavern, you feel welcome and at "home".
