Been here twice since our stay in Koh Tao, the food is good, and prompt, and they have a good range too! The seating is comfy and spacious and the staff are friendly and attentive!

Still one of the best places on the island for genuine Thai food at a reasonable price. Simple fare but great taste.

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor we visited Pranee's during our trip to Koh Tao.The review were spot on. Pranee's has great food for affordable prices.

We've been here in the afternoon for a quick lunch. All was good, fresh salad and veggies. Good ingredients and above all pretty cheap. Don't hesitate to come back again!

Orderd a soup (which was a little tasteless but with the garlic bread was great) Pad thai which was as expected from a pad thai .. Shakes, beers, food are in reasonable price(we had 400 bill for 2 firsts, main's and shakes) , nice place to catch lunch.

Perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. Thai food is pretty good there and very affordable compared to other locations in town/on the island. Service is quick but could in our opinion be provided with a wider smile, as per Thai customs.
