“Simply Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Again + Again is simply the best Thai food I have had in Koh Panang + comes very close to food in Chang Mai.
There are no thrills -just 2 very hard workers,mother + daughter.Everything is cooked from scratch so if the restaurant is busy expect a wait-but enjoy watching the chef at work.
An added touch this year is that you can order a bottle of wine,which the daughter will go + collect from the local shop.Even with a bottle of wine + water ,Again + Again is the best value for money restaurant in the village.
Thank you so much.

“Great Thai food in Ko Phangnan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Like many places in Thailand the best food you have is from the places that might not necessarily have the kerb appeal. Again and Again does not look much from the outside but the food is fantastic. It is run by the mum who cooks all the food and the daughter who does all the service. Orders are cooked one at a time so if you're in a hurry then this is not the place for you. However the food is worth the wait, tasty and you can see the cooking being done with all fresh ingredients. We ate here a few times during our stay and the value for money was amazing.

“Great home style thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I don't that I would rave about it as others have, but the food is good. The mum cooks it all and really appreciates your positive feedback. Very rustic setting, but yummy food.

“Best Thaifood on Ko Phangan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

All the dishes are exceptional. Well balanced in taste. Very fresh ingredients. Best Som Tam and Pad Thai in whole Thailand. Will come again and again. Calculate some waiting time as all the dishes are prepared fresh.

“Very delicious, a must go if you bring some time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We've read a lot upfront our stay to the Santhiya and wanted to try the A&A for dinner, unfortunately it was only open at the two last nights of our stay. As soon as we saw that it was open we went in.:) So don't be surprised if it isn't open.
We normally order a starter and main course, you should know that the cook finishes the orders one by one and first come, first serve. Therefor our starters arrived with the main courses. But seeing the lady cooking and obiously enjoying it, we didn't care. It was all very delicious. We had on those two nights green&red curry, lab gai, papaya salad and I went for a fruit shake. Those are freshly prepared, you can see the daughter chopping the fruits and blend it. Fresher than fresh and tasty and inexpensive. On the second night I ordered 2 fruit shakes in the beginnig because it takes a long time and if the restaurant is full you might wait forever. A minor complaint: please hire an additional help. When the restaurant is full a second waitress can take orders, help with the shakes etc. I am aware that if everything is fresh it needs time and the wait is definitely worth it but to wait for a simple beer, coke etc sucks in the heat.
