Cheap and nice food

This restaurant is not a beautiful place, but the food is great. The staff is very kind and the elder man (who I think owns the place) is always checking with everyone if the food is "OK!?" :)

Wonderful Thai food in a tiny place off the main road in Kata ! Very friendly service ! Ask to spice it up for you as they have adapted most of the dishes to tourists taste !

Good food, super friendly staff. Really fresh and well cooked seafood. Price was cheap compared to other restaurants in the area. Manager was really welcoming and joked around with the guests. Overall a great dinner, we went there a couple of nights during our 2 week stay in Phuket.

We fist visited this place in 2006 and every time we come to phuket (every 2-4 yrs or so) we keep coming back. Mr Kwong is always so happy - "ok!" - and the food and service has been outstanding on every visit. For a week's stay in the area we'd easily eat dinner here 4 times out of 7.

We shared a whole fried fish in spicy Thai sauce, crispy pork & Chinese kale, & stir fried mushrooms & asparagus. I found the food a little bland. We asked for medium spicy food, it was more mild. The fish was a little over cooked, the pork a little tough & dry. Based on other reviews I can only think... More

Looks like a normal seafood restaurant but it's not! There are so many restaurants in Kata but it's really hard to reach this level. The food is really cheap for the great quality! The seafood is realy amazing and the portions are filling. Very good quality and service too!

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
