“Great food - great price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Mam cooks and serves some of the best prawns I've ever tasted - they are wild from the sea and delivered daily.
The authentic Thai dishes are very good quality and priced keenly while a friend raved about his lasagne.
It is tucked away on Soi 8 (east) which is the northern set of traffic lights (of two sets) a couple of hundred metres in to the east.
They have a very busy takeaway service which is testimony to their food value for money so occasionally you may have to wait a bit - best to book.

“Best value for money restaurant in Kamala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I have been using this restaurant for a few years as a regular visitor to the area. It caters for falang ex pats but many tourists go there by recommendation The restaurant is small but with outside seating all under cover. The menu caters for both the Thai and foreign palate. The food is cooked by Mam, originally from Isan province, and is superbly done. She is prepared to do special dishes eg fish if ordered a few days in advance. If you want to eat around 8pm then you are advised to book as it is popular and busy. 9pm is a better time. Mam also does a takeaway service using the standard menu.

It is off the beaten track which is also part of the attraction.

“Authentic delicious thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Looking for another restaurant, we found this place and was very pleasantly surpriced. The area looks a bit like a construction site and is not in the center where all the other restaurants are but the food in this restaurant is brilliant. We had four different dishes which all tasted fantastic: shrimps in tamarind, shrimps in chili oil, chicken with cashew nuts and fried rice. The restaurant itself is quite basic but it is not expensive either. We paid 800 baht for 4 dishes and soft drinks. 5 stars because of the quality of the food vs the price.
