We went to Pesto for dinner for 2 times in our Phuket trip. Free pick-up service from our hotel, nice and sincere staff, and tasty food at a low price. We ordered steamed and deep-fried fish, one for each, both fresh and yummy. Our kids love it! The smoothies there is a must-try! Fresh and chilly! Only 55B each!

Carbonara was good, bacon was tasty and spagetthi slightly overcooked, the texture of the sauce was creamy but lacked in salt and pepper. The homemade Gnocchi were cooked well and the sauce was creamy but also lacked in salt and pepper. The... More

After having had loads of thai food and different versions of typical dishes like Pad thai and shrimp with red chilli. I found that this place has one of the best renditions of these dishes and I really appreciate their service!

Came here on a recommendation. We were not disappointed. The food was exceptional. We had European food as we wanted a change from Thai. There were 3 adults and one grandson in the party aged 4. The adults had foie gras on puff pastry with apple, scallops with a tropical salad and beurre blanc, and seared tuna. This was followed... More

We have visited this tiny place only because of tripadvisor reviews. It looks like a cheap thai place, never would expect it, but oh my - this chef is amazing! Very delicious food, great menu and quality. Will be visiting again and again.

We were recommended this place by Sasha, the new chef at the Dusit thani Laguna. The Massamam beef curry was the nicest curry I have ever had. The place is also dirt cheap.

Everything we do in the kitchen, from using subtle textures and flavours, to seeking out the freshest local produce has the same objective: to stimulate the palate and delight the senses.

Our menu which is inspired by authentic Mediterranean and Thai flavours creates a fusion of tradition and innovation, uniting yesterday and tomorrow.

Our aim is to transform classic Mediterranean dishes through the use of bold, Asian inflected seasonings and unexpected flavor combinations to draw the basic essence and nuanced flavours of quality ingredients to the fore and allow them to truly shine.
