I ordered the chicken satay and the chicken was over-cooked and the peanut sauce was too sweet. The chicken in red curry had very little flavor. It was a terrible meal

Huge banner placed with certified trip advisor excellence branded but the quality of food wasn't good. We ordered mango salad and spring rolls which was alright but the tuna steak was hard and rubbery, that was terrible. Don't bother coming here.

Visited this place for lunch, the decor was a little mixed with the remains of what was probably a German restaurant in the past. Service was efficient but not over friendly and the food was good with plenty of flavour.

We had some seafood and chicken soup. Also a starter. The most disappointing thing was the size which we got offered. To small for an European. In conclusion..... More

Their tom yum gai (chicken) soup was delicious and spicy (although they could make it less spicy if you want, but then, it's not really Tom Yum!). Their yellow curry was with beef had tasty curry but the beef was slightly... More

Went as a result of good reviews on Trip advisor. Awesome food experience. We ordered the Matsaman beef, Fish balls in coconut milk, Pad Thai, Fried crab with glass noodles. It was without doubt one of the nicest meals we've had whilst on the ten day holiday. Ingredients were fresh, flavoursome and served quickly. The owner even brought the unused... More

Revisited Lucky Toms after a previous great experience. We were a bit worried because it was a very quiet night and there weren't many customers. Having said that, there weren't many people around at all in Kata this night. We weren't disappointed. Food was as good as we remembered. We asked for mild curry and got it. Service was attentive...
