Image 8: The restaurant is like a big tree house and it's connected to a resort area with a few other restaurants.

Image 9: Prawn crackers while we were going through the menu.

Image 10: Our server then told us they were also serving a buffet (about USD$20) which had basically most of the items from the menu. So there was really no point of ordering à-la-carte (a main course alone was at least USD$10).

Image 11: A bit disappointing that we came all for way for a buffet. It wasn't a splendid buffet like Sukhothai, just a tiny one!

Ordinary food, very ordinary food! I don't think the buffet setting or the terrible weather had any impact on my judgement. Really, none of the items I wanted to encore!
