“Great food and great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Comfort food and great price at the heart of overpriced Aonang. Service is fast and dishes are large.
Options of Thai and European dishes, a great deal. And beer is really cold, which is a highlight where temperature never falls down 30°C!

“Great food, great service at a great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

My fiance and I have just returned from this resturant from having dinner this evening. We have eaten at a few tai places since being here and both felt that this has been the best so far and probably the cheapest too!
We ordered shrimp fried noodles, pad thai, sweet and sour pork, morning glory veg, two soft drinks and two alcoholic drinks and the bill came to 500 tb! The food was lovely and the service was great, we met a waiter and a waitress who were both friendly and knew enough english to have a bit of banter with us! I think for the price this place deserves the 5 stars we have given it!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Massaman Restaurant has always been a favourite of mine in Ao Nang. The food is reasonably priced and I have never had a bad meal here. Plenty of meat in the curries in fact too much but I am not complaining about that. Service is always excellent and with a smile good food what more could you want.

“Really good tasting Thai dishes at a price which will make you happy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant looked promising from the outside - a modern and simple but reassuring interior. I checked the Tripadvisor rating before entering - looked good.
We were greeted by nice and cheerful staff - not pushy as in some other restaurants.
My wife and I both had the Papaya salad - the spicy variant - for starters. The guide books tell us to avoid this because its uncooked vegetables, but because of the good Tripadvisor rating and the general clean and tidy look of the place we decided to try it anyway.
Delicious - but the spicy variant will really make your eyes water. Still it was balanced in a way - delicious taste.
Then we had chicken with cashew nuts. One of the best I have had. Again a good balanced taste, we both liked it a lot.
Will be back.
The prices also make you happy.

“Nice affordable Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Location - located oppposite Bombay palace and Nasha Russia restaurant in the same side as Mc. Donald's .
Atmosphere - we found the seats facing the road very nice and comfortable. Had no bug or fly problem. Toilet was clean but the way to the toilet has bottles of packaged drinking water and other storage things stacked.
Food - real value for money place. Have tried their chicken massaman curry, pork in garlic and pepper ( must try), snapper in ginger sauce. All dishes were excellent and the spice level just perfect. My husband is a vegetarian and he had the green curry with vegetables and the red curry with vegetables on special request (without chicken stock and fish sauce). Their garlic bread was nice and crispy twice and soft and soggy once, spring roll was very crispy. Tried their lime juice and orange juice.they were ok. If you want to have tiger prawn or lobster you will have to inform them a day in advance.
Service- love the fact that they have no one standing on the street to pounce on every tourist passing by. They have decent number of tables full even during off season. The staff courteous, helpful and smiling.
Will always come back to this restaurant and recommend it to everyone. It's not a fancy place but the food is real value for money.
