“Bad meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

From the minute we arrived we were not happy. The beer was twice the price of other places.
Plates were bought to the table ten minutes before the food. No warmers supplied. Food tepid when it did arrive
Thought the prices for the food were extortionate
Waiters served food by reaching across in front of someone
No discount given for locals
All in all bad evening altogether. We will not return

“NOT FOR VEGETARIANS”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We wanted to try a different cuisine while in Paphos. It was an utter disaster and a terrible mistake!!!! The vegetarian food was appalling as it smelt of fish. We ordered all vegetarian food and was really disappointed with the smell of fish in all the dishes. The food was more Chinese than Thai and probably another reason why it did not meet our expectations. The name should be changed to something like SHANGAI rather than calling it Phuket, may be then we would not have stepped in! The restaurant was busy and it might have been a reasonable place for non-vegetarians.
The food as such was bland and tasteless. Bamboo shoot dish was horrible that we left the whole thing behind.
We will not visit this place again even if the food was free. The décor was nice but the service was nothing appealing.

“Simply the best Thai restaurant in Paphos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

I've been coming to Cyprus for more than 20 years and happened upon this restaurant 10 years ago, the service, ambiance and food is second to none. Skevos the owner always makes an effort to greet us and makes sure our every needs are met in kind. I have tried many different dishes during my visits to the Phuket restaurant from fish, meat and vegetarian and have never once been disappointed I can't wait until our next trip to Paphos as this beats any Thai/Chinese I've eaten at in UK!

“As others have said "Tasteless"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant last night and I have to say that I wished we hadn't. The restaurant itself is very elegant and suggest sophistication and style. However, the truth of the matter is that the food is very poor and probably not cooked by an expert in Chinese cooking. The mixed starters for two were lacking taste and spice, whilst the ribs were burnt. One of our main dishes - Singapore noodles, was I believe made using super noodles, absolutely dire with no taste at all. The other two dishes were equally as bad. On the plus side, the service was fairly good, but no matter how good the service is, it cannot make up for disappointing food.
