We were here for lunch, after the main covid restrictions have been lifted.
No requirements to wear a mask in the street and no requirement in the restaurant either.
However, from the main door, there is a 30 metre walk to the restaurant, along the wooden jetty. For the 30 metre walk, we needed masks. I had forgotten mine at the hotel.
I asked the doorman if we could enter as we wished to eat, and no need for masks in the restaurant. He denied us entry and was so rude and dismissive, saying that it was 'impossible', that I immediately wanted to depart. My friend approached him in Thai language, and it seems he managed to be ruder in Thai, than he was in English! Masks were on sale right across the street, so I purchased one but I now choose not to set foot in Kept, ever. So, I walked three hundred metres to Ruantalay restaurant, and I had a fantastic lunch there.
Pity this rude, power-hungry doorman guy managed to ruin this place for me, I was eager to try.
