The service we received wasn't very good, the waitresses didn't look like they wanted to be there and they were not exactly polite. The food was alright for the price but I've had tastier street food, overall wouldn't visit again, would rather pay extra money to go somewhere else.

Food is super delicious! Every meal is very tasty and price is low! I thought I did not like some dishes after I tasted some food at another place, but here they cook everything very delicious. I understood that other thai places just simply can't cook thai food properly.

We loved this little restaurant. It looks a bit spit & sawdust and you could certainly pass it by in search of somewhere more inviting, however, the food was amazing - all freshly cooked and delicious - and so cheap! My stir fried vegetable main course cost the equivalent of £1 & tasted amazing! The lady doing the cooking was... More

During my stay in Maenam went to Oncle Noi twice. Once to check it out, and second time to check if it gets any better. Unfortunately not. All stir-fried dishes were swimming in the same unbiquitous salty brownish sauce with the same set of chopped veges. Sweet and sour fish not really fresh. It's a family-run place, atmosphere is great,... More

After arriving late, had no idea where the restaurants were we stumbled upon Uncle Noi. It would not have been our usual choice with plastic cloths and garden chairs, however there were a few people in so we ventured in. We were warmly greeted by a lovely lady who got our drinks and advised us on the menu. Being new... More

After a long walk we found Uncle Noi's typical Thai cafe but really tasty food. You watch your food being cooked in a very small kitchen and there is only one person cooking so you will have to wait for your food but it is worth the wait. If you want typical Thai food at cheap prices and you are... More
