Steak was a little tough and overcooked- should have stuck to all thai food! Worth a visit though and generally good value.

We went there after reading some (very) positive reviews and there is nothing to remember positively about this this evening. Slow service, not even kind, we have been waiting for our drinks half an hour. Food is really, but really, far from Thai standards. We had the impression to eat Asian food in a low budget restaurant in Europe. To... More

After all nice reviews, we gave it a try. They offer free pick up which was a great plus for us as living in the area without car. The restaurant is simple but have a nice terrace. The service was a bit slow when we visited it as there was two large tables so we waited 30 min for our... More

We ate here many time and loved it. The owner/chef was great and the food matched it. Very cheap and great value for money.

This was our favourite Thai restaurant last year so we went back to see if it was still as good and were not disappointed. They have a brand new courtesy pick up car now so the old pick up must be retired. Visit 1 The surprise is that it is not more busy considering that prices are well below most... More

Average food but lovely garden and decorating. I enjoyed red duck curry, but for the cost I would expect more and maybe a separate smoking area, but we did get a taxi ride which was very conscientious as we don't have scooters.

Ordered takeaway last night but was offered complimentary transport there and back so we went there for a meal tonight. Family of 7. The dishes were delicious. Ordered way to much to list all the names but definitely can recommend the BBQ. red snapper in banana leaf. We are staying at the LUNA VILLAS. It's only a short journey. Lovely.

Small hole on stills place but food the best we had in Phuket. Recommend all the curries, the satay, the pad Thai and the shrimp in tamarind sauce. Every item was flavourful. Service also was homely. Loved it. Only issue is that we didn't realise it was a small joint so may not be ideal for people with very small... More
