We ordered a dinner of the chicken spring rolls followed by the famed Massaman Curry. We chose the chicken Massaman. The order took a little while to receive. The spring rolls were served which were plump, with a light, crispy batter which was not oily at all. The curry arrived shortly after. We were not disappointed. Ordered extra spicy it... More

We visited in November last year after hunting the place down because of good reviews on TA. Firstly its not easy to find. If you can find Knock Out Bar in Tonsai then its just round the corner. It does not look like much from the outside and the menu is not huge. These are the downsides. The good points... More

We had dinner here recently, and although we ordered too much, it allowed us to sample some of the best of Thailand! The Green Curry, Pad Thai, and Chicken w/Cashew Nut dishes were all amazing, and served very quickly. The staff were exceptionally friendly, big smiles and lots of gratitude. The setting was fairly basic but this added to the... More

These guys are very kind and welcoming. The food packs flavour, and is more than a healthy portion. Skip all the rip off "fresh seafood" restaurants, and eat here a few times. I did. Massaman curry is great, and they pour a mean Chang.

The curry ordered had loads of meat in it, which was a first for phi phi. A tad more expensive than some others but it filled me up longer and didn't have to snack on other rubbish. Sole reason I gave it a 5. Very tasty and quick.

Very authentic Thai food at good prices. A simple little restaurant run by a family. Everyone was very friendly and made sure that you were happy with your food.

Such tasty curry and papaya salad. We found this gem of a restaurant in the middle of our 5 days on Koh Phi Phi, and came back 3 times.
