After a tip from friends we finally visited Lim's and loved the service, ambiance and food. I can thoroughly recommend to people looking to escape the bustle of Patong. The tranquil, leafy garden feels like an oasis.

Hidden away in a hillside location is this gem of a restaurant. May be a little difficult to find for some but worth the effort. The exterior hides a quirky and exquisite interior preserving the natural setting where possible. The staff were incredibly welcoming and efficient. Great cocktail list, try the chilli martini it truly is the taste of Thailand.... More

Well hidden away and well worth the effort of finding it ! Have been here many times and always love it. The food is great - the service is excellent and if booking in advance, they always make an effort to decorate your table a little bit extra special. Love it and will be back again and again ...

Started with warm beer served on ice cubes. Followed with suspicious shrimps smelling like the toilet drain flushing in the restaurant (I'll try to load a picture when possible). No taste despite asking for spicy salad. Ended with a sea bass tasting like a tilapia which is also on the menu at a much cheaper price. Crowded with large groups... More

We have been to Lim's many times over the years, always expecting slightly higher prices but also excellent Thai food with a twist and a special ambiance, but this is no more. The prices for miniscule portions of Thai food from a very unimaginative menu were extortionate, as were the wine prices. Service was patchy, it was hard to get... More

My wife and I have had dinner here 3 times, including last night. As usual, the food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. Not too expensive, including a very drinkable red wine at a realistic price - a rarity in Thailand. We had Pommello and shrimp appetizer, Fried Tillapia fish and a Penang red chicken curry with rice.... More

Beautiful setting off the beaten track (not too far off)! There were 3 of us this evening and there were no tables left outside, however the waiters found a bench outside and set the most lovely dinner table for us. The food was fabulous!! I mean incredible! The wine was second to none and it was very reasonably priced! Thank... More

Although this restaurant is not easy to find, it is worth looking for because the food is very nice; Thai food reinvented and put on a higher level; Appetizers tastefull and well prepared. Main courses iwith unique flavours and well presented; All this with some nice Thai beer of if the budget permits some nice wine.

Would never have found this restaurant unless someone told us about it. It is a curious design on different levels. The food was tasty, servings were small if sharing. The mixed starter platter was outstanding. Wine was expensive. Staff were attentive and friendly
