This place is very inexpensive, fast and delicious. Came back a couple times. The massaman curry was incredible!

Good pricing for the food, mostly under 100Baht (dependant on the protein you choose i.e. Prawns cost 120b to have 🍤 ) I love that they had brown rice! It just feels like it tastes better! I had the massaman curry and my boyfriend had the Pad Thai, e said it was the best he's had! The service was good,... More

I had the "Green papaya phad thai: Stir fried green papaya with tamarind sauce, vegetables & egg and Chicken". It was so fresh and balanced flavours, simply the best phad thai I had in Thailand until now. I strongly recomend

This place is so good. No fuss, simple food that tastes really great. And prices are very reasonable. Staff are attentive and friendly but not overly so which is good. They serve brown rice here which is a big bonus, not so easy to find in Thailand but a handful of places in Pai serve it.

We shared all our dishes and they were all dilicious. We had both a shake with typical thai food. My girlfriend is thai and she knows what is good thai food.

Some of the best Thai food I've had all month in Thailand. The coconut milk soup and the green curry are out of this world. The flavors are amazing and the prices are even better. If you're in Pai this place is an absolute MUST

They do it right. The food is really fresh and mostly organic I think. The green papaya salad and the green papaya pad Thai are both amazing!! They also do a really nice shake (both banana/coconut and mango/coconut). We are there regularly while in Pai.
