A nice surprise

It was a random but a good choice after all. Staff was friendly, spoke English well. The European dishes were very good, my friend loved their beef salad, the rest of us were happy about our dishes as well. Went there more than once during our stay on the island.

We had arrived late, tired and hungry and were not in the mood to look around much, so we went with Mak Mak and were positively surprised. Nothing super fancy or special, but very good Thai food at a reasonable price. Only later did we read that this place seems to be very careful regarding food safety and I can... More

We had dinner at Mak Mak, food was ok. But very average. Luckily there are many more restaurants in the street :)

This place was really good. They wash all of their food in bottled water and have separate Thai and European kitchens. Great if you want to taste some authentic Thai dishes but don't want to worry about getting sick! My Panang curry was so good! (I hope I spelled that correctly). The staff are helpful and its a nice atmosphere.... More

It is exactly what they say a family restaurant. The food is good like the service. Good European dishes with excellent French fries. Nothing fancy but just what you might expect from a family restaurant. We did not try the Thai dishes except our standard starter spring rolls. And they were excellent.

This restaurant had good food and the waiter spoke decent English. And they had a few good vegetarian options, which my wife enjoyed. And the pet kitten was cute

The first night we were in town I asked, 'do you have tofu?' on the second night the guy sent one of staff out to get it. The meals were a good size and very tasty. A small fountain, some orchids and candles created a nice atmosphere in an otherwise plain and basic surroundings.

A no nonsense restaurant with a great selection of food from traditional Thai and including some western selections. What impressed me most was their ability to adapt their dishes to cater for vegetarians which is a rare thing in Thailand!

Kai bae beach isn't a place for culinary delights. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice place to stay but the restaurants are pretty poor. Mak Mak is a little better than most of the other places and offers enough to keep you from starving while wondering where to eat next. The dude next door cooks up the pizzas which... More
