... this was so bad! I cannot understand the good comments for this restaurant. We were there: - it was too loud because of the awful music from the bars in opposite - no fish ( one day in advance to order), only shrimps (defrost ?) The owner of the Restaurant are really nice and the chef came out of... More

This was one of the best places we ate at in all of thailand. Great value, lovely people and service and the food is cheap and beautiful. Looks a bit ordinary from outside but don't let that turn you away. Definitely with a visit and couldn't recommend highly enough.

At first sight most would be reluctant to eat here, as was I, however the food was very flavoursome and was enjoyed by all in our group of six

I was told so much about not only the food but the people at Pooms Restaurant before I had the privilege to visit and they certainly did not disappoint. The food is fresh and always to your tasting....some of the best seafood I have ever tasted! The owners, Aom and Lek, are the sweetess couple and nothing is too much... More

I've visited Poom's Place several times, and never been disappointed. Mr Lek prepares the food as you like it, spiced or not, he uses the most fresh seafood, gets it fresh from the market every day, if he is not fishing it himselfe!! If you want to try something special and extremely delicious, ask him to the special fish-dish as... More

if you are somewhere around Maenam, you will have to visit Poom´s Place! The people running the restaurant are really lovely, and they know how to cook :-) After I was there for the first time, I kept on going there every evening for dinner (and sometimes for lunch too ;-) On the last evening, my girlfriend and me even...

I tried eating at super expensive John's garden down the street. It had the presentation, but not the flavor. Not good enough. At poom place though, they deliver where it matters the most - flavor. Flavorful food made with fresh ingredients, served with a smile & at reasonable rates. What else could you ask for in a restaurant? Must try... More

Was so looking forward to some real Thai food after the fiasco at Sri Nuan....ended up in another back packer's joint with run of the mill Thai food. Very ordinary menu, have had better and more authentic Thai food in HKG.....what a disappointment after all the great reviews!!! No effort to cater to special requests whatsoever. BTW, sleazy bar across... More

Aom and her husband ( he is the chef) have a great restaurant ; she speaks excellent English and gives good advice. She also recommends food, which is important if you are not used to the amount of spices used. Food is cooked freshly to order and they shop daily to get high quality fish and vegetables. The prices are... More

I ate here several times while I was staying in Mae Nam. The food was great, and over the few nights, I got to know the owners who were very friendly and relaxed and all too happy to give great service. They also have a good selection of cheap cocktails to get the night started and are happy to help... More
