We have just returned from The Family Restaurant and haven't stopped talking about how amazing everything about the place and the food is!

The two of us ordered a huge greek salad, equally large bowl of tzatziki, falafel and houmous, pitta breads, a big plate of shwarma chicken, drinks and baklava which all came to 585THB. I honestly can't express enough how incredible the food was - the baklava and falafel in particular were the best I've had in a long while if not ever, the salad had loads of olives, feta and beautifully seasoned tomatoes, the tzatziki and chicken seemed to last forever and a good job too as it was delicious to add to the kebabs we were making using the large, soft, homemade pittas. The ambience of the whole restaurant is friendly and relaxed with plenty of interesting photo's and writings to keep you talking, each time I looked up I saw something different...and the trip to the toilet is something else, make sure you take your time ambling in the corridor!

The owner and his staff are fabulously friendly and fast. All our food arrived at once which was different. ;)

It's a shame we only found it today and have to move on on Monday but when we are back we definitely know where our first meal will be coming from!

Thankyou Family Restaurant for an incredible feed.

I took a group of students to Ovy's restaurant. What a fantastic experience for first time guest eating Mediterranean cuisine. Everything was wonderful from the host, to the hallway of fame, to the delicious morsels that we ate.

Have eaten here a couple of times now and the staff are friendly, the food is delicious and there is a good atmosphere to the restaurant.

If you go here make sure you go to the bathroom. I guarantee you will spend at least 10 minutes in the hallway look at all of the cool posters, sayings and words of wisdom.

The Restaurant has been around for decades. Its alway a good solid meal for Kabab and Falafel lovers. This an indoor place with air-condition and very well suited for a whole nights dinner or a drop in lunch.
The food has never been a disappointment for me. I have visited it many times.
