“Little, hidden wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Found this place via peoples reviews on Trip Advisor. This is my second time to this area of Phi Phi and only just found this place at the end of the Holiday Inn property. Climbed up some steep stairs to come to the little restaurant, which appears to be the house of the lady who cooks. Her little boy was wandering around, and as many other people have noted - he had no pants on. But he was quite cute and stayed out of the way. The view was amazing of Bamboo and Mosquito Island. The sea and the sun were amazing. The lady was a great hostess and you got to see her actually cutting up all the ingredients and making the dish. It took longer than it would in an ordinary restaurant but this was all part of the experience. We loved out dishes and the setting of their house. It was a great experience for lunch and I recommend others make the journey to see it for themselves!!

“a dining experience with the family”

sitting in the lounge room as the family looks after you with the freshest food cooked in front of you looking across the sea at sunset... a great way to enjoy a meal

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Tonight was our second meal at the restaurant. We had two deep fried yellow snapper with garlic and pepper- absolutely amazing, so flavoursome and moist, more than enough for 4 people and at 900 TBh incredible value. The spring rolls are great, crisp and tasty but not greasy in any way.
The surroundings may be humble but the food is outstanding in quality and value. The hosts , a husband and wife team, are friendly and service good, they really want to please and deserve to do well.
If you want authentic Thai food and a great experience, come to Chilli and Pepper. The management team of the local large resort ( including the exec chef) are regulars here. Need I say more?

“Best food of our trip... directions included”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Yup, there's a three year old. Yup, he wasn't wearing any pants. Yup, he threw a bug at me. But we went back several times because you know what? We can't get this experience at home or Thai food that is this good or this authentic. It all makes for a very good story and we tried many dishes and they were all exceptionally good. This 'restaurant' is just a simple family business. I think they are dong it tough and it would be a shame to see them go. So to get there you walk to the Southern end of the beach, away from the Natural Resort, away from Zeavola, away from the Holiday Inn. Keep going until you virtually run out of beach and then you will see a dirt road running off the beach to the right. Walk along the dirt road (maybe 100m) until you see on your right a sign (altho if it has rained it may have been washed away) on a blackboard, a set of very rickety wooden stairs and the little restaurant nestled up high amongst the trees. Oh and if you feel like lunch in a deckchair in the water out the front of Holiday Inn, he delivers!!
