“GOOD LARB SALAD, AND PRAWNS & GOOD SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Mama Phuket is just off the beach and the food is stunning. There is nice white crisp table cloths and service with a smile. I took a trip upstairs to the toilets and they were like a spa toilet. They smelled nice and were sparkling clean. We only had lunch I had Larb Salad and my husband had Crispy Prawns and we shared some fish cakes. We also had cocktails and it cost just under £9. What Bargain. If you want western food then you pay the price. Try Thai hot and spicy Larb delicious with a sprinkle of lime juice.

“One of the better, if not one if the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

If you, like most experienced travellers, realise that a trip to Phuket quickly means re-calibrating expectations from great, to good, to not bad, to it's actually ok... Then this is a nice exception.

Friendly service, well presented and properly prepared food. Yes, also a collection of european standards, but also real thai specialties and desserts that are rarely found in the other tourist orientated "genuine thai"

“Yummy - with the little extras”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

My husband & I had lunch here a couple of times while staying in Karon. The food & drinks are cheap, cheap!! The staff are very friendly, which really should go without saying because that's how we find all the Thai Restaurants & their staff!!!
When you first sit down before you order you get complimentary garlic bread, after your meal, they then give you complimentary 'flavour of the day' ice cream, served in a shot glass. A nice little touch to the already nicety.

“Loved It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Awesome place for dinner. The food and the people are lovely. We were a big table and they managed our orders/ meals wonderfully. The cocktails were very tasty!! We sat inside to the right, the down fall with sitting here is the street sellers coming up from beside us from the outside of the building and constantly interupting our dinner...
