“Good Local Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

A regular take away spot for our fix of Thai food whenever we are in Phuket. Extensive menu even for (free) delivery to your villa/room. Good flavours and decent value for money despite the restaurant being in an area frequented by foreigners.

“Delicious and so hospitable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Amazing food and wonderful service! We called them and they picked us up from our villa to bring us to the restaurant. We ordered the grilled tiger prawns (huge, 200 grams per piece), chicken and beef satays, chicken and pineapple curry, kale and crispy pork, pineapple fried rice, soft shell crab and mango salad, several soups to sample, fried chicken wings - everything was delicious and served quickly and fresh. And to finish it off: mango sticky rice and deep fried bananas with vanilla ice cream. Both were amazing! And the coconut sauce for the mango sticky rice was on the side, which made it easier to control how sweet it was.

Some of us can eat spicy, some can't, and the staff was very accommodating with making some dishes hot and some mild to please everyone on the table. Definitely going back this week.

We ate indoors (with AC) but there was a pretty garden in the back with ample seating.

“Good Thai food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We liked the food so much that my Wife and I went to the Thai cooking school they run. This was a two hour lesson that taught us how to cook four dishes of our choice in two hours. We both really enjoyed the experience. There was just te two of us with a helper each and we got to eat the food afterwards in the restaurant after and take what was left back to the hotel all for 1600 baht each. Really enjoyed it and would highly recommend. We got an apron an a recipe note book each and ha the opportunity to buy drinks too. Course started at 10.30 after a pick up from our hotel and drop off after and we sat down and ate at about 12.45. We learnt to cook pineapple rice, massaman curry, chicken and cashew nuts and a red curry. All delicious (even if I do Say so myself!!!) and I really enjoyed the experience and I would do it again.

“Thai food as it should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Based on reviews we had two dinners delivered to our villa whilst at Banyan Tree resort. Food arrived promptly, was steaming hot, well packaged but above all tasted superb. They really listen to you if you order it Thai style and not for tourists....wonderful larb gai salad..ditto pappaya salad which was spiced as we asked....great pad thai...in fact could not fault any dishes.......please check it out if you are in the Laguna area..much better value than the sterile overpriced hotel thai restaurants.....my wife who is vvvvvvvv fussy on Thai food raved about it. Enough said!!!!!!

“BEST OF THE BEST!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Accidentally find this restaurant first day of Phuket and we been there three times in five days!!

We had a great great time in Tawai while I'm in Angsana Laguna.

They don't have a great sea view but - The food is fabulous super delicious, drinks are range, restaurant is clean, the manager name Ei is super kind, they do pick up service etc....

I tried Lotus, Golden leaf... like near beach side restaurant but the food itself- Tawai is the winner!!

You must try this if you heading to or you're already in Laguna area.

They have a bar next door - we had a couple of beers in there and hanging Cherngtalay-massage, nail polish, exchange money, shopping and back to Tawai to eat!! Couldn't be better all in one area!!
