“The Hut”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

The Hut was recommended to us by other couples at our resort. Our group found the food delicious, cocktails cheap & the service very good. We did not have to wait very long for our meals as other reviewers have suggested. Well worth the visit.

“The food is great, cheap and cheerful”

The food is great, cheap and cheerful. The wine was also well priced compared to most of the restaurant's in Bophut. Excellent value for money and tasty food.

“Great value, character-filled restaurant”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The Hut was recommended to my husband and I by a young couple I met when doing a cookery course. It is down in Fishermen's Village but down the very end where it is a bit quieter. It was excellent value for money and good food! It is run by a family who don't really interact much with diners but we felt very comfortable there because it is so small with a lovely ambience. It would not appeal to those who like upmarket surrounds as it is like being in a grass hut - but we really liked it. We chatted with two couples sitting near us as the restaurant is very small so it is easy to interact with others -IF you want to. It was a very cheap night out - with cocktails included - and food was great!

“not as good as expected”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

After reading all these fantastic reviews on Tripadviser we were hoping to experience really good food.
Wouldn't repeat what was mentioned in previous reviews, just want to focus on key things:
- you will wait for your food quite a lot
- you will be surprised with really small portions;
- you will be surprised with absence of fresh juices (yes it is not Michellin starred restaurant, but it is Thailand....you can expect it here);
- you will be upset with setting - really small place with quite dirty everything around;
- you will get good food and would enjoy it!!!

“Great food, be prepared to wait”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

As other reviews state, this is a basic looking restaurant, in the day you would just walk past. However after reading up on it made it one of the first places we ate in Bo Phut.. Good selection of food, kids enjoyed the chicken satay for starters along with the fried calamari. My first main course during our stay was the King prawns, wow, people at the next table asked what I'd had and my husband was envious of my choice. He enjoyed his curry but wanted to try the prawns. Unfortunately when we returned the last night they had run out of them!! The bill came to about £25 for four starters, four mains and two rounds of drinks!!!

Be patient, this is a family run place, not a huge seating area so can have queues of people wanting food, the service can be haphazard , starters and mains arriving at different times sometimes, but is such good value for money and delicious food that it is worth the quirkiness. When we waited on the last night we walked to the restaurant at the bottom of the road and had a drink, boy they gave large measures!!

We ate here three nights out of five, so that says something, Friday nights are particularly good as it is the Fishermans Wharf evening market, a brilliant night, not to be missed.
