Fodor's Review

Relax on the beach all day and dip in and out of this upbeat beach-chic restaurant for tasty snacks and drinks, especially refreshing as tables are strewn across the sand and well shaded by large umbrellas. The beamed, wooden circular area with a bamboo roof, a leafy waterfall shrine to Ganesh and a totem pole wearing a sun-faded straw wig make a quirky backdrop to southern Thai dishes made with modern European flair, including grilled prawns or fried chicken, complex

curries and more. Same Same also has a new cocktail/smoothie bar and a shop selling home decor items and clothes. You will hear the Tinglish (Thai English) phrase Same Same But Different throughout your travels in the country. It actually means similar but not the same. T-shirts sporting this phrase are sold everywhere.
