Went twice to have a dinner at Phen's. First time had som tam and pad thai with squid. There was no chili nor peanuts in som tam and pad thai was ok. Next time I wanted to have a good green curry and thouhgt that it was impossible to ruin. Well Phen's succeeded in what was impossible. Absolutely no taste... More

Last year, Phen was out no 1 choice on the beach next to JW Marriott. All other restaurants have now left the area and Phen remains alone and became a "garden restaurant" some 200m from its original location. Unfortunately the spirit had gone. Food is now bland and service is poor. Staff seems depressed and no longer smiles. What a... More

This restaurant is situated near the JW Marriott hotel. Facing towards the ocean it is on the right side of the hotel, behind the hotel spa. It is not directly on the beach, so you will have to follow a little road for about 50-100 meters. The restaurant serve delicious Thai food. You can ask for not spicy or a... More

Just like The Boatyard restaurant you get value for your Baht at Phen's. Nice atmosphere,friendly staff. Could do with some Thai music in the background for atmosphere. Recommended.

Great restaurant very close to jw marriot. If you are staying there and want a delicious meal on a budget this is your place only a very short walk from the beach. I recommend this. Will be going back there today.

This restaurant is a great choice to enjoy Thai food. It is just 2 minutes away of the JW Marriot hotel. The prices are very moderated, we ate 3 times there and never paid more than 30 Euros for two people.

We stayed at the Marriott hotel in November 2016. Towards the end of our holiday we were recommended to go to this restaurant and we were pleased we did. The service was great and staff friendly. The food was very nice and the cheapest meal we had during the whole of our holiday. We went for dinner and lunch and... More

This is our third year at the magnificent Marriott in Khao Lak, our favourite holiday resort anywhere in the world. As usual, on our first night we eagerly made our way to the beach restaurant area next the hotel. Set back among the trees, last year this bustling area was home to a myriad local restaurants, massage parlours and various... More

We liked the restaurant, when we visited it last year, but this year we cannot recommend going there. The food is not very good, the waiters always look angry and last time we ate there, a rat dropped from the ceiling and onto the floor. We are not going back to the restaurant.

We went to Phen after reading good reviews here. Having spent nearly £70 on a poor Italian at the hotel yesterday, we have just had a lovely meal - starter, mains and a beer for around £12! Very friendly good service, we didn't find it slow as other reviewers have but we went fairly early. It's a real shame the... More
