Liked the thai food ordered. The fruit juices also good. Its good to come here and try traditional local food. The spring rools despite some reviews describing them as exceptional for me were regular.

Please go eat here! It has the best thai food and also order the garlic naan. From the outside it does not look that fancy, but the food..so good!

Got the spring rolls, chicken massaman curry and spicy basil beef. Everything tasted extremely fresh. Spring rolls were super crunchy and piping hot, but they were wrapped really thickly so they tasted mostly of the fried wrapper and had a pretty small amount of filling. Massaman was very rich and creamy and the basil beef was full of flavor! Absolutely... More

I had the Indian food and it was very good (bread with cheese, rice, chicken). The bad points: no air-con and bad restroom. Food also took a while to come, although the restaurant was quite empty (~40 min).

We are nearing the end of our 4 month trip, so we've had our fair share of Asian food. I will say this is one of my favourite spots so far. I'm vegetarian, and have no problems here. Lunch was Panang curry & dinner was fried rice in pineapple. Both so goooood and big portions! My boyfriend had Panang and... More

Staff were so friendly and welcoming and explained the menu and recommended masaman and panang curry so my friend and I ordered those and they were amazing! We'd been pretty disappointed in Phi Phi with the food as most of the food has pictures and when presented with the food it doesn't look a thing like the pictures but Papaya... More

Yes, the masamun curry was really good but we stayed for the spicy tom yam. The important thing is this place is clean and food taste fresh!

Very good food. The lemon pepper shrimp are amazing and the service is very friendly. They didn't serve alcoholic beverages but said they were fine with people bringing their own.

The restaurant doesn't have huge atmosphere but it is cheap and tasty. The panang curry was one of the best in Thailand as was some of the other dishes, but the Pad Thai was underwhelming - save the pad thai for the street vendors.
