Place for Jain food eaters

This place was suggested by our tour guide and it was a home away from home. We being Jain could not have onion, potatoes, garlic or carrots in our food. Still we managed to find yummy food made for us from the chef there. We visited this place multiple times during our stay and with every visit... read more

Was recommended to come here by our Dive Master Michael from Phi Phi Barakuda, as he said the Massaman curry was top notch. He couldn't have been more right. That was the tastiest Massaman curry I've had in my life!

In the main area of Phi Phi there are tons of little places all packed next to each other and with that level of competition it shocked me how much the prices varied. One other trip adviser recommended spot (Anna's) seemed to be litterally 2x the price just a few minutes away. The waiter was great here and the food... More

We had the shrimp penang curry and the masaman curry based on the recommendations written on the wall. We also shared egg fried rice and spring rolls. The food arrived and... More

Great service and great food. The chef makes the place nice because of his very good attitude and he is very friendly. I tried the Garlic and pepper with shrimps and it was amazing. I truly recommend this place. My girlfriend tried the pad Thai and it was good but not the best she has tasted :)

Picked this from TripAdvisors rating. Great Thai food but the staff was not very helpful. I ate massaman curry and liked it. They have no beer too. Don't know why. Most expensive pancakes I've seen on phi phi but it sure tasted good. Pad Thai was like 70 baht. A bargain!

The amazing thing about this place is they have 2 adorable big kitties that love chilling out in the fridge. guy yelled at me for keeping the door open and playing with the kittie but this is the coolest thing about the restaurant. No alcohol is sold there but they are cool if you bring your own in. We had... More
