“Delicious food even for a Thai person!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Took our Thai friend to this restaurant one night after we'd got home late after a tour and couldn't be bothered going far (just down the end of the driveway of Centara Kata) and she loved it so much that we went back there another 2 times. Delicious curry's, rich with authentic flavours and the creamiest coconut cream, noodle dishes were flavouroursome and my ultimate favourite, the seafood salad was fresh and fragrant, and my kids just looooovvvvveeed the satay sticks (when I tried not to eat all the to-die-for peanut sauce!). Don't go there expecting a flashy, commercialised expensive restaurant. This is one of those typical small kitchen thai restaurants with open doors, fans and no air conditioning but good, cheap, honest Thai fare....and isn't that one of the reasons why we love Thailand? - absolutley!!

“The worst experience I've ever had”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Have you ever imagined having a noodle soup made from a broth cube? We had that yesterday.
Unfortunatelly we were quite confident and ordered fried noodles with shrimps - also big fail. I really can't understand why this place (can't write "restaurnant") got so many positive reviews and starting believe in fake reviews in Tripadvisor.

“Great for families with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I read the reviews but found immediately what was liked most--this restaurant has a western menu for the kids who may not like larb gai or pad Thai. Be aware that there is no air conditioning but not many restaurants in Kata have air. My favorite--fried squid in garlic and the fried rice.

Descent decor

Minus
Poor food - an european kitchen can anytime make better thai food
Slow service even though we were the only guests

“Well looked after!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Go and visit Bug and his team. Very easy going, laid back spot to dine. Great for family, lots of options western and Thai. All very tasty....even take away back to your hotel if you want. Set up well for all languages. Thank you Bug...yummy lunch!
