Knocked down for redevelopment

Along with its neighbours, Bamboo, Lemon, and Dean's, the last member of the 'bamboo hut style' Thai restaurants have also seen its last days and have been knocked down for redevelopment.

Fantastic Thai food with good value for money. Really delicious with a wide variety of Thai food at a very good price. The ambience is good with small attap roofs over your benches looking like huts for your family meals. Wide range of desserts and drinks too is available. Overall, the food was good, price reasonable, good choice of food... More

Went here one evening for their fresh fish which seemed far simpler than the complicated restaurants nearer the beach. We chose a Red Snapper which we had deep fried with soime sticky rice and some Choi Sum in oyster sauce and garlic (plus the obiquitous Singhas). The food was lovely and as you sit in your own 'hut' the setting... More

Food was very good drinks also good, service to get food on table also good. But service later on very poor when needing top up drinks had to wait forever hence lower score.

If you need someone to wait on you hand and foot, this isn't your place. However, if you are patient, this place serves delicious thai food at a cheaper price than most places on ao nang. Once you DO order, the food comes out quickly. We were really happy with the curries we tried and the banana milk shakes :)... More

Had visited this place before and had only good things to say about it. This time around the food was disappointing, strange tasting and not too fresh. I got 4 small shrimps in my curry for an additional 100 Baht, the Tum Yum likewise had few shrimps, 5 to be exact.

Service was ok, but my yellow chicken curry didn't have a lot of chicken, and wasn't very tasty. Average prices, but below average food for me.

We ate here loads during a long stay in Ao Nang. Loved the food!!! Well worth the visit. The staff were nice enough but don't expect too much on the service side of things but we let that slip due to the food being so good. We had our 2 kids (4 and 20 months) and they had a good... More

It's not luxurious but the food is fantastic! The bbq fish and rice served in half a pineapple were just amazing! This place is family run, the children are watching tv at the very back, but it is an authentic and lovely thai restaurant! We will return!

Got lured in by the friendly man out front and our rumbling stomached. The meal was delivered quickly and it was tasty but the lads were too busy touting for future business to man the tables for further drink orders or customer service of any kind. Cats roam the restaurant(woof) and the beer was warm. Not on the cheap side,... More
