“Incredible little restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

This little restaurant is fantastic.

It is a place that oozes character, with friendly staff that provide great service.

The food is absolutely sensational for the price you pay. Expect an authentic Southern Thai taste explosion.

For those reading this who are thinking about trying this place out: stop thinking, just go. You will not be disappointed.

“Bang for your buck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The quality of food here, far exceeds the price. I came here with a couple of friends and our bill came to 630 baht (1 appetizer, 3 entrees, and 3 specialty drinks). The staff was timely and friendly. Food was fresh and sizzling. I ordered the cashew chicken. It was in a great sauce, had juicy pineapple and crunchy cashews. To drink I had a strawberry lemonade. You could tell it was freshly made and not artificial. Supper was absolutely great here! Supper (appetizer, meal and drink) for under 150 baht is a nice touch. Would highly recommend

“Great food at good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Authentic Thai food at good prices (didn't reduce spice for Westerners, so good). Chang beer is a cheaper price here (60B) than other restaurants in Phuket Town.

“Delicious and authentic food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

During our stay in phuket town, the Kopitiam was the restaurant of our choice. The Thai curry is unbelievable delicious and also the other Thai dishes were really nice. Furthermore you had the opportunity to buy some handmade souvenirs, if you want an alternative to the typical souvenirs from phuket.
