Staff are rude. Only reason they do well on Trip Advisor is location and fire show. They have no competition on Kantiang beach and you can tell. (Manager/owner welcome to respond but you are probably at the heart of the problem).

Impressive fire show, great live music and staff is very accommodating. They give you popcorn with your drinks in the evenings and it’s really great to sit outside in the bean bags with some drinks in the evenings.

Between the great live music and fire show this is a place you have to spend the evening killing some Chang Beer. Really a fun place and in the center of everything.

Overrated. Awful food. Overpriced drinks. Unprofessional service. Fire show OK. Spend your $$ elsewhere

We went here as a lunch stop in our scooter tour around the island and we were not disappointed. We had the pad thai and stir fried rice in pineapple and they were both great. But what makes this place stand out is its atmosphere....More
