Great seafood

Good, affordable seafood off the main strip. We ordered squid, morning glory, and spring rolls and would recommend all three.

Great tasting Thai food and nice selection of German beer for something different than the usual Chang singha tiger! No complaints here just full happy bellies

When we were last in Kata some 2 yrs ago we ate here several times and it was excellent. It appears to have changed hands and when dined here recently the food was average at best and the service aspires to be average - we received our main meals approximately 1 minute after being served our entrees. I recommend you... More

We had lunch here after a morning of walking around Kata. We had eaten here before on the recommendation of a tour guide. We weren't disappointed then & wasn't this time. The food we ordered was freshly prepared & yummy. I particularly liked the mango salad & prawn cakes. We'll probably eat here again before we leave Phuket

Not sure why the reviews are so good. The food is ok but lacks the wow factor. I had a squid base dish that was lukewarm. Restaurant itself is ok lots of German bits and pieces. Service was good. Maybe the cook was having a bad day. If you found the review helpful please let me know.

I'm afraid this place just didn't live up to the rave reviews. Not sure if it's under new management, but the food was average at best. I had the garlic beef and it was cold and not very tasty. My vegetarian spring rolls were all noodle and hardly any vegetable. All and all a real disappointment.

Came here for a meal having not read anything about the place. It was an average experience. We ordered a glass of wine (110bt) and a beer (130bt for big Chang). We then ordered a chicken red curry which was good and a panang which was a little bland - they went easy on the spice. Nonetheless, it was ok.... More
