We were planning to go to a different restaurant but I think is holiday in Thailand tomorrow, 2 places we wanted to try were closed. We then passed by The Sweet restaurant and we didn't want to keep looking so we went it. The waitresses were very nice. We ordered stir-fry morning glory with garlic and chilli and shrimp with...

I'm working my way around Phuket trying mango sticky rice. If I could give this restaurant 3.5, I would - it's better than average but not very good. The price is good and the serve size is good. My only criticism would be the rice was a bit dry (both times I ate here). Worth a try if you are... More

I have eaten here many times over the last decade and it's always friendly, cheap and super delicious. Well worth the walk if you are in Patong.

If the owner of the Sweet restaurant - an Autralian elderly man - is really nice and prices are cheaper, we have to admit that food is average here in comparison with other Thai restaurants in Phuket we've ever known.

Came here after reading all the good review. The foods aren't bad, it's taste ok but no where near very good. The price is fair though. I prefer Euro Thai Restaurant over this restaurant.

I came here because of all the reviews. The amount of reviews and stars it received had left me with high expectations. The mango sticky rice was average. Nothing more, nothing less. I've had better mango sticky rice back in the US.

Found this place on TripAdvisor and spent a good deal of time trying to find this place which is a bit hidden. We came a bit later in the evening and were the only ones there. The service was friendly but a bit slow, it felt like they were not focused on closing the restaurant. The food was decent, no... More
