We stayed at anantara phuket villa and ordered food in from Kin Dee. They delivered quite fast, the food was well packed too. The menu is quite decent and pretty much offers what you would want from a thai menu. All in all a great restaurant!

Kin Dee is the best alternative, if you are staying in Anantara or Marriot in Mai Khao area. Since there is nothing else around to eat. The Turtle Village is a great disappoint as the restaurants there are simply expensive and have a horrible taste. With the same amount, you are better off eating in Anantara / Marriot. However, I...

Fairly close to all the hotels ate Mai Khao beach, this is a must visit restaurant, especially for dinner. The charming chef knows her Thai cookery inside out. The tastes and flavours are phenomenal as is the value for money,very reasonable prices especially considering all the expensive hotels around here. We had some of the best Tom Yum here and... More

When ordering here remember to specify that you'd like to have your dishes in the original Thai taste to avoid disappointment. Unless of course you can't take the heat.

The good: - menu is easily accessible from website so had plenty of time to choose and price listed is up to date - 5 mins before they arrive at hotel lobby, they gave us a call to... More

This former Marriott chef opened her own adorable restaurant and it is fabulous! It was the best meal of the entire trip! Service was wonderful. It was also extremely affordable. Skip the Thai restaurants at the hotels and head over to Kin Dee (only 10 minutes via taxi--taxi will wait). Must visit!

My wife and I had dinner here based on a recommendation from the JW Marriott. The menu was very extensive, and every dish and salad were a surprise.

Saturday night and no customers. That was the first clue. Ordered Tom Yum Gai, received Tom yum Goong, even though I explained my allergy to Goong. The chicken wings were disgusting, inedible. My friend only ate three spoonfulls. An utter waste of time and appetite.

Wow. 13 nights in thus amazing country eating in the fanciest restaurants (mandarin oriental, scirocco in Bangkok) and having tons of amazing street food which we loved...this restaurant outshines all of them. We have just returned from one of the greatest meals we have ever had, The setting is gorgeously rustic overlooking the mangroves with the sounds of animals everywhere.... More

Kindee is a regular for us when on holiday. I recommend it to anyone I know coming here and it never disappoints. It's value for money and many of the dishes are local creations you won't find elsewhere (my favourite is the duck with reduced passion fruit sauce). The location looks over mangroves and the building is rustic, but the... More
