If you're in saladan you have to try Kungs! We checked trip advisor first and decided to give it a go. The staff were lovely, the owner was very open and chatty and the bbq grill guy was so sweet. We choose the red snapper, squid and tiger prawns from the fresh counter, all were cooked perfectly and with amazing... More

We tried the chicken cashew, green curry, sweet and sour chicken, friend rice, seafood salad and all tasted like Chinese take out food. The meat was hard, the sauces were salty and the friend rice oily. The waitress was friendly, the juices were great. Location is convenient.

This restaurant is very ... correct but I cannot see what it does in top 5. The food was ok, nothing memorable, the prices were similar to other restaurants. Maybe I missed the fish which could be the key but otherwise I would not give it a higher rating. Of course the staff was nice but nothing else to say

Went here to eat 2 times and thought the food, service and prices were excellent. Thai curry very good as was the papaya salad. We went near the end of season and this restaurant gets very busy so it is probably to book.

In my opinion, this location is one of the best restaurants in Saladan. Tried different dishes there, all were very tasty (especially the green duck curry) and fish was very fresh. In addition, very friendly staff. I can definitely recommend this place.

I thought the food was very good. The beer was ice cold and all was served fast. I'm not so sure about fish. I went to most of these places and looked at fish. Not sure how quick the turn over is. They brought us fresh fruit after dinner comp. I also thought that was nice.

Our visit to this well reviewed restaurant would've been much nicer had the waiting staff concentrated more on service than on being friendly. Our main courses arrived before our starters and we constantly needed to remind them to provide new cutlery. The food wasn't bad, the service simply awful. Service isn't always great in Thailand but this experience brought us... More

We had grilled sea bass, chilli basil mussels and chicken spring rolls. Chicken spring rolls tasted really fresh and was delicious. Mussels were our least favourite- could be a bit spicier. Grilled sea bass and the sauce - absolutely amazing! Service was very attentive and complimentary fruits plate at the end of the dinner was a really nice touch.:)
