“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

We tried our luck for the first time on Sunday but they were closed yet adviced us to return on next day. We came there before dinner peak, at 18:00 expecting to get a place without reservation. There already was a queue ahead of us :o and i heard that closest reservations are available like two days ahead only. Anyhow we managed to get a table with a promise to leave at 19:00 as there was a booking on our table.
As we had little time we skipped any appertizers and went for two main courses only.
Food was amazing with millions of matching flavours. You soon can understand why it is so hard to get in there-but it is well worth it-our best food experience in AoNang for sure!

“Wonderful little restaurant ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Jungle Kitchen is a wonderful little restaurant. It is full of character as each table is set individually under a thatched roof out in the open. This can be a problem for the staff in poor weather. We were there during a very heavy downpour, the waitresses were all wrapped up in waterproofs, it took two to deliver the food to the table, one carrying the food on a tray and another holding a tray above the food to keep it dry! Such care! We visited several times during our stay in Ao Nang sampling the food from quite an extensive menu, everything we ate was beautifully cooked. The restaurant is a family concern run by the owner and her daughters who are all very friendly, welcoming and helpful. This year her friend a French Canadian was acting as a receptionist, he was very busy welcoming arrivals but sadly having to turn many people away as they did not have a reservation. You really do need to book in the high season, sometimes a few days ahead, but it is certainly worth it!

“You need to prebook”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

The place is always fully booked and most likely you will not get in if you dont prebook
We have booked 5 days prior we had a meal. Meals are nice but average, not any better than elswere however 2 or 3 times more expensive than somewhere else. I really dont understand the whole deal with this place...Staff is nice

“Awesome restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

This is an adorable restaurant where you each get your own hut to enjoy the beautiful views and wonderful food. Our dinners were amazing and we had the most delicious mango sticky rice there. And the owners young daughter (maybe 2 or 3) walking around with her dolls is adorable and kept us entertained. Great value for the food, ambience and experience. Well worth a visit. Their Thai ice tea is amazing.
