  • Colourful figurines, table mat and bed linen is colorful, such as color, natural dyed products are added in very many private collections as well as a gift, which is a really nice place to buy fabric products, as well as the tea was purchased with also.

  • Nice shop below average food. The shop is very nice and has a wide range of souvenirs, books, wood carvings, clothes and so on. The products in the shop are beautiful and the quality seems OK for the price. We had lemon juice and iced tea in the nice café which where good but the food options are the typical western tourist stuff, sandwich and so on. Would not eat there.
  • Good lively ambience.. good place to meet up with your peeps.. serves beer and no cocktail options. Friendly services.
  • If you need to buy cotton sarongs and good books this is the place to visit. They have a good collection clothing made from local handlooms. A upmarket shop.
  • Spent a lovely Sunday lunchtime here. Listening to live jazz music and al fresco dining. The shop sells lovely handmade gifts and household items; well worth a visit.
  • Very good place for beer & snack! Too bad it closes too early... Staff is very nice!
