This is a simple and tiny restaurant but don't let that stop you from trying it out. The food is really flavorful and the owner is friendly. I was thinking of reducing a star for the portion size as it's fairly small, but it's so tasty that I won't. But be warned: if you're really hungry, get an appetizer! The... More

Good food. Owner was very accommodating when we rocked up as a family of 5 and he asked a couple of locals to relocate tables to fit us all in. Kitchen is tiny, so we found the meals came out a bit random (timing). Owner is friendly.

Went there for lunch and was served very good food at very affordable prices. Will definitely go back again in the future. Unfortunately, there were a few flies buzzing about the place as commented by a previous review. Will suggest the owner to put up some fly traps to get rid of them!

Waitress got my order wrong, ordered a massaman curry and got something completely different. There were flies everywhere, buzzing all over our food. Not sure why this place is rated quite highly

Dear Mr. Liam F., thank you for your comment. We are so sorry that Mussaman curry was below your expectations: maybe, asking for "not to spicy" curry we put too much coconut milk inside your dish. Regarding the fly, this is a natural side effect of the raining season: one minute after a monsoon rain, many insects goes out from... More

Great place, great people and great food! 90% of the times we only eat street food where ever we go because the restaurants just aren't worth it but like we told Ole, we'll go back for more tomorrow :) Today we tried the chicken panang curry, chicken pad thai and banana smoothies, everything being fresh and tasty!

Excellent authentic Thai food. We were happily pleased with our diner as it had proved quite difficult to find a restaurant serving good, flavourful Thai food in Karon/Kata Area. The Red Duck delivers delicious food, and the owner was very professional. We had the Pad Thai special with really fresh and tasty prawns, and the special pork soup which was,... More
