Despite its reputation, there is nothing about this restaurant that suggests it is stand out when you walk in. Has more of a cafe feel to it, with as many locals eating as tourists. The dining area is simple, old colonial feel to it, with a liberal number of geckos looking down on diners. menus are falling apart, tables and... More

During our Phuket town visit, our guide took us to this restaurant. It is housed inside a very old sort of a building, with window grills and colonial ambience. We were here on a Sunday afternoon and the air conditioned section was full. Had to sit in the fan cooled area, but thankfully the chilled beer made up for the... More

Get the duck curry with coconut milk. Absolutely to die for. Also an impressive wine list which was a surprise. Would travel back to Old Phuket Town just to eat here.

Good food but the number of lizards roaming freely and the view of the kitchen from the parking area raise hygiene questions. To be fair, none of us got sick, but we worried about it all night :) Restaurant was recommended by our hotel.

Hong pork and tamarind shrimps are also good. Please be aware that it is a bit high compare to other restaurants with... More

Low key .. Modest furnishings in an old colonial building .. Seems to be a home adapted into a restaurant .. Probably very hot in the summer during the day .. Quality and taste excellent ..

If you need to test some southern Thailand traditional foods, this is the place. Be warned of the spicy level you can handle! Just let the waiters know your tasting bud strength.

Located within old phuket, the setting of the restaurant is stunning ie an old colonial styled building which is now adapted into a restaurant. I was there with a few friends and we were excited to savor some great Peranakan Food as the restaurant has had some great reviews. The belly pork in dark soy sauce and Prawns with Tamarind... More
