A unique spot outside Patong

My wife and I have had dinner here 3 times, including last night. As usual, the food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. Not too expensive, including a very drinkable red wine at a realistic price - a rarity in Thailand. We had Pommello and shrimp appetizer, Fried Tillapia fish... read more

Started with warm beer served on ice cubes. Followed with suspicious shrimps smelling like the toilet drain flushing in the restaurant (I'll try to load a picture when possible). No taste despite asking for spicy salad. Ended with a sea bass tasting like a tilapia which is also on the menu at a much cheaper price. Crowded with large groups... More

We have been to Lim's many times over the years, always expecting slightly higher prices but also excellent Thai food with a twist and a special ambiance, but this is no more. The prices for miniscule portions of Thai food from a very unimaginative menu were extortionate, as were the wine prices. Service was patchy, it was hard to get... More

Beautiful setting off the beaten track (not too far off)! There were 3 of us this evening and there were no tables left outside, however the waiters found a bench outside and set the most lovely dinner table for us. The food was fabulous!! I mean incredible! The wine was second to none and it was very reasonably priced! Thank... More

Although this restaurant is not easy to find, it is worth looking for because the food is very nice; Thai food reinvented and put on a higher level; Appetizers tastefull and well prepared. Main courses iwith unique flavours and well presented; All this with some nice Thai beer of if the budget permits some nice wine.

Would never have found this restaurant unless someone told us about it. It is a curious design on different levels. The food was tasty, servings were small if sharing. The mixed starter platter was outstanding. Wine was expensive. Staff were attentive and friendly

Deilicious thai food, good drinks and wine and an excellent ambiance. The service from the owner is good and the artsy modern design of this garden (or gallery inside) restaurant is a real treat. They deserve much more then the current place. Only place in Patong I really feel not being a tourist-sheep. A bit hard to find for some... More

Cannot rely on the google map to this place, brought us the wrong place two times. Even the hotel owner locate in front have no knowledge of this restaurant exist. No proper signage to direct. Food wise so so, Environment ok, Price wise rather expensive. Service no complaint.

We had an excellent meal, and by far the best in the Patong area. Do ask for a seat outside, inside has a bit cold atmosphere, although it is very nice decorated. It was also one of the few restaurants where we dared to order wine and were not dissappointed. Compared to western prices, it is still very reasonable, and... More
