Nice food but a little unwelcomed

No doubt this place got some nice food and the fact it is quiet and relaxing music makes it good for family and couple dinner. Also wine is very good, however the owner's tone makes it very uncomfortable to just sit and chilling out after we finish our food

We arrived late for dinner but were still greeted warmly and served a fresh, hot delicious meal which clearly tasted like eating at somebody's house (in the best way possible) -- we had a shredded green mango salad with fried fresh local fish, a pork salad with toasted coconut and lovely wine. The meal was so enjoyable, we signed up... More

A small restaurant near the traffic lights on the main road in Maenam. Nice traditional Thai food and good value. My wife and daughters returned the next day to attend the cookery class and loved it

Madame Sue is a resolute but warm-hearted woman who knows all about food and authentic Thai cuisine. For me it was a first time, my friend has been here years before and she remembered him. We had dinner three times and it was always as good as it gets. Try all of her specials from her menue on the wall... More

We have been eating at Sue' s for four years now and she continues to cook authentic, delicious Thai food. Fish fillet in tamarind sauce, chicken green curry, beef musaman followed by mango sticky rice. Sue only uses the freshest ingredients and everything is always beautifully cooked. She does all the cooking herself and proudly maintains the highest quality. One... More

Arun was great! Very extensive menu and great prices! Sue was very engaging and made salad's in front of you. Everything was very fresh. Quiet, little restaurant with a lot of character. After our dinner Sue even flagged down a songthaew for us!
