We were lookibg where to get lunch, and this was the highest ranked place near by. With a whole menu available under 100THB, good coffee, westerner friendly dishes and quick service - they've made us very happy with our choice to dine here. Highly recommended for a decent quick meal.

Full of local people and often offering daily specials. Prices are good, drinks really cold. We've been here many times. Just a few tempting dishes to mention:... More

We ventured over to Phuket town for something different. We had dinner at this restaurant and OMG was it good and the price was a fraction of what simular items were in Patong. There was so much flavour in the dishes we ordered and not to much chilli.

Really liked this place. The spicy pork is what it says, spicy! Try the rice in a pineapple dish. The dumplings were excellent too. Their juices are freshly squeezed and served in a bottle for convenience of takeaway. Popular with the locals. Desserts looked delicious too...

Visited Phuket town and tried this very busy restaurant. Most tables were full so we saw this as a good sign. We ordered a few dish's that we have had elsewhere. All were tasty but none were better than the other places. The crispy pork with morning glory was very tasty but the amount of pork was very miserly which... More

This place was so good - perfect for 5 backpackers looking for reasonably (cheap) priced dinner but still high quality!between us we had pad Thai, sweet and sour noodles with chicken, garlic and pepper chicken with steamed rice and fish dumplings.. All meals were very, very good - only criticism is that maybe one or two dishes could have been... More

Compare to the other local places, food was average. Prices are good but dish portions are smaller than other places in the same category ! Staff is very friendly ! Overall a good experience.

Good food at a reasonable price. Lot of locals eating here. When they say spicy they mean it. Also try the icecream! 55 baht for a small cup and they have around 20 cool flavors.

Can't remember the meals ordered but they were all excellent. Price is cheap compared to everywhere else I've been (In the Ra Wai / Nai Harn area). Clean and what I would consider "very local" which is what I like, in terms of atmosphere. Yes there is a little language barrier but had no problems ordering by pointing at the... More
