“Best massaman curry ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

An authentic Thai restaurant serving excellent food. Went back a second time just to have the massaman curry as it was so tasty. Good value for money and local ambience which is much needed in the strip of western run eating places.

“Really tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

Went here last night as close to hotel and on TA reviews. Close to the noisy road but food surpassed that inconvenience! we had the vegetable massaman and sweet & sour chicken, both delicious. With steamed rice x2 and a large singha and a rum and coke bill came to 360 bhts! Real tasty value for money food and will go back even of road traffic was a bit noisy.

“Reasonably priced authentic Thai.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

Real Thai food as opposed to the gargbage Thai food served in all the "Italian/Indian" restaurants across town. Reasonable prices for Ao Nang. Beef Massaman curry is fantastic. Simple setup and some staff struggle a little with English but try hard to serve well. Had lunch here two days it was so good. Beautiful breeze both afternoons while it was hot in town.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We ordered a beef massaman (180baht with rice) and green curry (105 baht with rice) and were very impressed with both. The massaman curries in Thailand seem to vary a lot and getting one with beef can be quite rare, and a decent one with beef is even rarer. Thankfully, this restaurant gets it right. The price is very fair considering the quality of the food and we'd definitely go back. Fully recommend.

“Great flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I mean their schnitzel isn't great but you don't go here for that. Their curries are amazing. I like their beef massaman curry but the beef can be kind of tough, not gonna lie. Still great flavor though. :) My favorite however, will always be the red curry with pumpkin. I still dream about it. Their crystal noodle salad with seafood's not bad too :)

Service is pretty good compared to Thai standards (they won't just stand next to you awkwardly, can make recommendations, and check up on you once in awhile/anticipate needs)
