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

There are many seafood restaurants in Kata but this one is a cut above. I've eaten there many times and the food is very fresh and consistently delicious. I recommend the mussels in chili paste and the steamed squid. The location is good in that it is up the street away from the noisy, tourist-packed area closer to the beach.... More

Ate here only once, very nice food and it is cheap however, as is a lot of Thai food in phuket. We were mesmerized by the prices on our visit but once looking around it is actually about normal. Had a chicken basil and chili stir fry which was very tasty but it was disappointing that it was 100% chicken,... More

Tasteless thaifood. Shocked over the reviews here but maybe something has changed or we just came here on a bad day. Good service and decent prices.

Doesn't look much and never busy but the food was pretty good. we had lots of seafood in this place and always liked it. Pricewise, its average for the quality of food. Service was good, no misunderstandings, fast. We mainly came here as it was close to our Hotel and we liked the quality but there are some better restaurants... More

The Thai-food is very good. I've had the chicken red curry with rice many times the last two weeks. The spaghetti bolognese is ok. Prizes are good.

Stopped here for lunch after reading some reviews. Fairly standard Phuket eatery and menu and prices, good quality food and portion sizes, service was OK but lacking in smiles and verbal communication. 690 bhat for lunch and drinks for three so can't complain.
