7th June 2013- The venue, the staff, the view, the delectable Thai food.
We actually dined here twice in 1 week!
You are carefully escorted through the tropical gardens and down the steps to your well dressed table. Ours was on the balcony over the sea both times. The water and crudités are there immediately and whilst contemplating what to eat, the sea and rocks below, which are softly lit and soothing to watch, make for a wonderful backdrop to what was a superb evening on both occasions.
Our group of 4 chose to dine from the Thai menu both times, as we like to eat from the country's of visit style of food wherever we travel to. Flavour, styling and portions were spot on. No disappoints at our table either evening.
We also partook in some of the fine wines on offer and again were not disappointed, with either the taste or the service and attentiveness of our professional well trained waiters. The cost of the wines does seem excessive to us Australians, but I do think we are spoilt, being able to produce fine wines in our country and Thailand cannot as far as I am aware. We certainly did not let price affect the experience. Price is soon forgotten, whilst good memories are always strong. Do let the restaurant know in advance if you have some special dish in mind, and they will even try to accommodate this although it is not on their menu, as we did on our second visit. If you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, do let them know.......you will get a lovely little surprise at no extra cost!
You simply have to visit Mom Tri's Kitchen at least once when in the area of Kata Beach and dine well. Not only do you get to have a thoroughly enjoyable evening but you get to glimpse at the gardens, paths, various seating areas and possibly the pools and styling of the accommodation options as well. You WILL want to come and stay here as well as eat here again.
I can live my routine normal suburban life back home in Melbourne, Australia, but having visited here and in fact Thailand for the first time this June, I can honestly say that it was indeed a truly Royal experience, as this is how we were treated and greeted each time we walked into their restaurant. We shall be back, without a shadow of a doubt.
Khop Khun Ka.
