“Great Thai food in Entebbe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We “often” go to this restaurant when, for a reason or another, we happen to be in Entebbe and be hungry. Coming from Kampala, the restaurant on the left of the main road, right next to the new mall/Nakumatt, on the corner of the road that leads to the botanical garden and to the zoo. The garden is quiet, and the food is delicious. Papaya salad was an amazing discovery for me. Pricy though for Kampala standards.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Stumbled on this place while in Entebbe. A bit pricey but the food was great. Pad thai with lots of garlic was a good call. The outdoor seating made the experience. I highly recommend.

“The only thai food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

In spite of the location and facilities, this restaurant is the only one who serves traditional thai food. It is actually a value for money restaurant!

“Thai Restaurant now in Entebbe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Unbelievably delicious Thai food in Entebbe...and very quick service. Relocated from Kampala. Perfect for dine-in or take-out meal before or after airport or while staying in Entebbe. Now located on corner of main Entebbe Highway and Nambi road...where you turn off to go to the Botanical Gardens. Great place to buy a picnic to consume while at the gardens!

“Moved to Entebbe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

We heard about this place from a friend living in Kampala and knew it had moved to Entebbe 1 month ago so we kept our eyes out for it on our way to the airport and we easily found it. There's a big banner with the name of the restaurant on the outer wall and a flying Thailand flag. It is located just as you enter Entebbe from Kampala on the left side of the road. Fantastic large grounds and fantastic food made this place great and I'd say a perfect stop for food just before going to the airport where you'll pay an outrageous 8000 shillings per beer. Food is on the pricey side but very flavoursome and great choices. I had a red Thai chicken and loved it. My wife's vegetarian curry was good too. There are few Thai restaurants in Uganda and this one has authentic, rich flavours with fresh food.
