The food as such was very good. It is very difficult to understand why do they bring all the ordered food items simultaneously to the customer. Normally, you would like to eat on portion at a time. This annoys especially because you end up waiting for a long time without any food and then, all of a sudden, you get... More

Other dishes had nothing common with authentic Thai food. No wi-fi inside despite lying man on the street.

We came here after all of the positive things we heard about it on tripadvisor and were sorely disappointed. This place is just like every other restaurant you can find littered around the little sois and shop clusters in Phuket. The decor is very old and worn, menus are poorly presented, staff were of average friendliness and helpfulness. There is... More

The food at Ging was very good. At first when we sat down we thought the prices were a little high for local cuisine. However, when the food arrived, we finally understood. The portions at Ging was relatively bigger than some other local eateries. And the taste was fantastic! The location was great too.

Another good thai restaurant - this time located in old phuket. Arrived at9 ish and very busy so we had to wait for a table- but this was no problem as we were seated in 5 minutes! Food was nice, though i am not sure i would say it was special! The portions were enormous making it quite good value... More

We had tom yum fish (excellent), and pad thai (mixed feelings) and grilled cuttlefish (very good). Service was excellent. Restaurant located near the old phuket hotel, beach side.

The food was so good I went twice. Service was very friendly, stopping by often to refill drinks, ask after the food, or chat. They even gave me a cocktail on the house. The cocktails were cheap but weak, which is why I didn't give Ging 5 stars. Never too crowded. The Tom Yam Prawn, Pepper Duck, and Whole Fish... More
