We had dinner two times here, and I think, it was the best place to eat in Koh Phangan (beside the pancake-maker couple close to the restaurant, standing before the 7eleven;). Very nice food for correct money. Staff is friendly, attentive and honestly smily with...their guests! And not for their money! (Because in my opinion, Koh Phangan is more expensive than any other places in Thailand, and there are nearly all things are built because/for tourism, and you can see this on the prices too.) So, on the whole, it is well worth going this place! :)More

This place is, as the title reveals, a must go place in the Zen beach area! I was a bit surprised by some of the rather negative reviews... Either the owner changed or (more likely) the judgment of some people is a bit off... Anyway,...this recommendation is subjective, which I can’t change. I can - however - let you know that this place is fantastic. I had the steamed White Snapper and it was absolutely perfect! Taste, quality and service was 5 stars. On top, the location was as authentic as it gets. I recommend this place without a doubt. By the way, the bill was 100% reasonable.More

Mama Poo serves fresh food cooked to order and the prices are very good. Great selection of menus but the Thai food must be their speciality. Best Tom Yum so far on Koh Phangnan (especially at 5* spicyness!). BBQ whole fish with Thai dressing was...fab too. Restaurant is roadside in small bamboo table based areas making it feel private and special. Definitely revisiting here before we go!More

The best local Thai food, can not recommend enough. Well worth the drive. This is from someone who lives in Thailand.

Restaurants like this is why I love Thailand. While European or Western owned restaurants are abound (seriously how many Italian restaurants do you REALLY need) this place stands out. It was the first place I visited on my second trip, I left the hotel immediately...and beelined here. It was just as good as I remembered it! This is a roadside, family run, open air restaurant. While it isn’t as slick as the aforementioned western oriented restaurants it’s absolutely delicious and a must visit. I challenge you to find better Thai food on this strip.More

So I just came back from mamas kitchen and my stomach is so full ! I am confused by the negative reviews on here as it was so lovely ! The food had so much flavor and spice and the smoothie we had was so...delicious! Our order took maybe ten minutes to arrive ? So not long. The staff where friendly and kind. Quick WiFi. Can’t wait to go back again. Hopefully tomorrow !More

Mama Pooh's has been around for a long time, for a reason. In the heart ot Sri Thanu, the food is good, inexpensive, the location is great and the ambiance laid back and invitingly Thai. Reliable and consistantly good Thai food at a fair price.

We went in October during a rainy evening. We liked the rustic and open-air atmosphere. Service was friendly. Food arrived hot, good portion sizes, took a little time but was worth the wait. We ordered pineapple fried rice, coconut shake, stir-fried morning glory, and green...curry. All were delicious, but the green curry was the best green curry I've had to date.More

If you are on a budget, this is the place to go. The prices are about the same as the other restaurants on this strip, but the servings are about twice the size. Go to Mama Pooh's for lunch and you'll only need a snack...for dinner.More
