“Average meal .....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This place is good if you are on a diet. Portions are tasty but small. Had a red curry of chicken and stir fried pork mince with basil. Two glasses of very forgettable white wine. Usual patong practice of serving very small portions of rice.

Would not go back.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

After visiting this place last year we were looking forward to going back, how disappointed we were. We got there about 20:30 and there were 2 other tables finishing off there meals so not busy, we took our seat and waited about 10 mins before someone came to take our order, we ordered starters, main and drinks and everything came together even the drinks. When we were ready for the bill it was impossible to get anyone's attention as they were all to busy watching the TV, in the end Hubby went up to the desk and asked for the bill, this again took forever to come over.
Have to say the food was ok but the service was shocking.

“Best meal in Phuket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Wow! What a meal! Fresh seafood and traditional thai for next to nothing! Started with excellent, tasty spring rolls and satays (we have kids) and were surprised with the tenderness of the meats and the spices in the sauces. The mains were a mix of traditional thai curries, pad thais and seafood dishes. The deep fried shrimp in garlic and pepper were heavenly. I wanted to get the snapper in coconut and spices but had no room after sampling of ample portions. We ordered a dish not on the menu and were pleased with what arrived! Cocktails were only 99 bhat and beers 70 bhat. Service was great but this could reflect the few people at the tables. This was the best meal in Patong and we had eaten at a number of established favorites. Highly recommended for Patong visitors.

“Pleasant surprise in Patong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We stumbled upon this one on our walk around the Patong area and it was the 79 Baht offers that caught our attention. We enjoyed the food and the staff were pleasant. The bill came to 278 Baht for a Thai Curry in coconut milk and a Green curry, both served with rice and two cokes - that is really good value for money!
