“Most Favourite lunch time restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Since retiring in Phuket, this is easily my most favourite lunchtime venue. The food is stunningly good and the prices are so reasonable. Most Thai dishes cost less than 100 Baht. Can get very busy, and always has many Thai people, which is a testament to the quality and prices. Dont visit Bang Tao, without going for a Sunset lunch!

“Great food, great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

The sunset restaurant really sets itself apart from other inexpensive Thai options in the Cherngtalay area. The stir fried shrimp in red curry was amazing - super hot and went well with the glass noodle and minced pork soup. Staff were great and attentive, they loved our 1yo traveller, beer was ice cold, and food was excellent. Great value and highly recommended.

“This is a local restaurant but having just about their game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

It's great being able to (almost) visit a local Thai restaurant, where Thai people also go and eat, and both have good food, a reasonably decent environment and 'just a little above local Thai restaurant' prices .... And the key part is not having to go into one of the other local Thai restaurants where they have the hawker style plastic stools and chairs and a swarm of flies when you generally look through the filthy screen covering the serving / cooking area ...

For that sunsets owners have raised the bar and targeted locals and foreigners alike without needing to set 'ripoff pricing' that drives away locals and attracts the generally wrong foreigners

If sunset set the bar for other local restaurants to follow then they are doing more then serving good food but educating others

Worth going and experiencing as closest as possible to local without the plastic stool troubles

As a tip when driving park on the opposite side of the road. Far easier

“Simply excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

This is a small lovely restaurant which appears to be family run. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.
The prices we could not believe they are so cheap we expected small potions but they were normal size.
We got a selection of appetisers to share - I particularly liked the chicken satay.
Main dishes were great also - the curries seem to be very spicy so if you don't like it too hot remember to ask for it a bit milder.
Great service, value and excellent tasting food. We are going to try and return before we go home.

“Best value for money Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Very good Thai food at amazing price. Service very slow but friendly. The steamed fish was excellent. Not really a place to go for a romantic night out.
