We went here for lunch and I had a lovely seafood meal with fresh squid. Place was quiet as it is far from the beach. One of the better places we had a Thai meal while at Kata beach. It cost 470 baht for two mains and a dessert as well as a couple of fruit drinks. If you found... More

The food was awesome. We ordered a fish that we selected and I could choose how I wanted it to be cooked. Also we ordered a prawn tempura plate which was great and the garlic sauce was delicious. I really recommend this place if you want to eat good seafood and fish.

Despite the lack of atmosphere, the fabulous Thai food has us coming back again and again. If you love fresh seafood and Thai food, this is the place to eat at in Kata. I had a fresh crab done in curry sauce that was off the hook. We also had a grilled grouper that was the best I've ever eaten.... More

Had a wonderful meal here, the fish is fresh and you can choose what fish you want to eat. The staff are very friendly. I had the squid with garlic and pepper, very delicious. Thanks for a great meal

This is the third year we use this restaurant on our holiday in Phuket. Even though not too fancy to look at, they are the best! Very good service, very nice people and extremely good food at very reasonable price. Nothing can beat that! Try their crab in red curry, mango salad, morning glory (a dish of a special vegetable....

We went to this restaurant after reading the reviews, very disappointing. The food looked good and cheap on the menu so we started off with 2 cokes, at THB20, decided to have prawns so picked 3 to be cooked, i was told they were THB500, (over £10 for three prawns) i was in shock and said ok. Will not be... More

Kwongs shop was pretty easy to find, the signboard is prominent and once you step into the shop, your visual senses are overwhelmed by the amount of memorabilia that adorn the walls. We were there for lunch yesterday. Ordered a crab cooked in yellow curry (crab was large but curry tasted weak), papaya salad (was bland and spicy), pineapple seafood... More

We tried many restaurants in the Karon area. This was one of the more memorable. The staff were great, helpful, happy. Mr okaay was entertaining. The food was tasty and very reasonably priced for the Karon area. We felt very welcome and relaxed and enjoyed our grilled prawns, Thai omelette, Gai lan and chicken and cashews. Nice, tasty food.

They do great seafood but the Panaeng curry last night was terrible, far too salty and lacked the full red curry flavour, it was also very oily. Staff spoke perfect English and were very good, our last visit was several years ago and the old fella is still going strong.
