Best cheap Thai food on the island

I only had one dish here, to be fair, but if it's representative of the rest of the menu then this place has legit Thai food for as cheap a prices as you'll find on the island. For the record, I had the pad Thai which I've found to be a great indicator of a Thai restaurant's quality.

You need to walk 5 minutes from Sairee, but it's totally worth it! Awesome food, kind staff, cheap price... what else? :)

Remember that "not all Pad Thais are created equal," well that's because this one is exceptional. Get it. don't be expecting a great atmosphere, it is a simple restaurant.

It's a family run restaurant but it's really nice and with reasonable prices. The food is delicious and comes in huge portions. Really recommend this one.

Tasty and cheap here... and there are so many good looking dishes on the menu - look forward to coming back. Ask for thai-style if you like it spicy.

Mint Kitchen is a good thai restaurant, out of the way, but with a good menu of all the favourite thai dishes and very good price.
