Our food was delicious - phad Thai, chicken fried rice, and papaya salad. Ning, one of the owners, was very hospitable. She offered to walk with us to the next door massage parlor to make... More

A big Restaurant that sometimes seems under patronised. Eaten there several times and not disappointed.

We enjoyed the meal as we had stumbled upon this place..from the hotel. Staff were pleasant, food options a plenty.. and tastefully prepared/served. Pricing sums it all up as it was very affordable. Would recommend this experience without missing a beat... thoroughly satisfied.: )

We came here twice during our stay in Patong and liked it very much. The prices are fair for a place that is relatively close to the beach, and the food is of great quality and taste. We particularly liked the fish and ginger stirfry and the duck coconut curry.

Thank Tim D
