Dined here on our last night in Phuket. Restaurant itself was decked out in white and nicely located right by the waters. Food though good was quite pricey. Staff could be better trained.

Pleased you enjoyed the food. All Wine is expensive in Thailand due to taxes. Quality wine is even more expensive. It's difficult for us too.
