Lovely and simple

Great Pad Thai and loved the papaya salad as well! Ended up coming back here several times as the waiters were super friendly in addition to the great food and cool setting.

The food is good. They have an A/C room with a slide door to keep you cool when eating... But there is a cat inside the restaurant. I know cats in Phi Phi are very common, but I don't have to eat with a cat on the table looking to me...

Honestly best restaurant on phi phi for both taste and value. We ate here every night and our group kept growing to the point that they sat us next door in a different restaurant. Amazing hospitality and food portions were huge and so tasty !! Love this place !
