“lovely owner and great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Its unusual for us to return to restaurants unless they are truly outstanding. We ended up eating 2 lunches and 2 dinners here so this says something about the quality of the food.

Its a quicky place with a rabbit at the front and a lovely owner (Jip). It gets busy (which is a good sign).

The food is authentic thai and definitely the best place to eat and relax in the village. Try the mojitos - very nice! We asked Jip to choose our food at our last meal and ended up trying some different but beautiful dishes.

Toilets are not great (as is the case in many places in Thailand) so try to avoid these.

“by far the best place in the village!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

If you want to taste delicious local specialties at the price of tips served by friendly owner and her team in cozy atmosphere of tiny restaurant featuring plenty of little details and your kid would enjoy playing with cute little rabbit named "Dollar" this place is for you! Definitely recommended!!!
The only tip for the owner - the general cleanness standard which is a problem for most of the places in the area could have been lifted.

“You have to try it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you are in (or go to) Thong Nai ¨Pan Noi, you have to stop there. It's a cute restaurant, and soo good (I took Panang curry and it was perfect)!
People are so kind (very polite and very smiling)! You have some games that you can use to wait your dishes. For animals lovers, they also have 1 buny and 1 cat who play together... it's funny to see. You definitly have to go eat there if you go to this wonderful beach (Thong Nai Pan Noi).
