lovely restaurant, they don't rush, (some of the Thai restaurants are so quick with serving) we had a lovely meal for 4 people and it wasn't very expensive at all. would definitely go here again.

This was one of our favourite restaurants as they had some unique appetisers that we didn't see at any other of the local restaurants - we particularly enjoyed the deep fried pork & citrus leaves and the deep fried chicken with turmeric. For the mains we never quite worked out if they were warning us dishes were spicy or asking us if we wanted them spicy - either way we agreed and wow they were hot, but also full of flavour generally and well worth it.
We loved the big chunky tables & chairs and there were some good views of the bay.
Service wasn't the best we experienced but it was OK, and the prices were some of the cheapest, so all in all we were very happy to be repeat visitors.

Worst but most expensive meal we have had across Thailand! Pork was undercooked and king prawns fried to a chewy frazzle. Other dishes were tasteless. Our feedback to management wasn,t well received.

Not one of the best looking restaurants/cafes in Cape Panwa but wow, food, price and service were excellent.
Found somewhere where the locals eat and the flavours were amazing, just remember to ask for Thai Style, wow - what a kick!
Went a few times, tried several dishes all of which were amazing so together with price we ate out for £8.00/night (for two) including beer and with a cocktail or three, expensive at....£10 all in!
I think this had the most authentic Thai tasting food and we tried many including Phuket town.
Go and be pleasantly surprised.

When we stayed at Regent Phuket Cape Panwa resort, we discovered this restaurant by walking around outside the resort and decided to try it one night. This was a tourist style restaurant and its heavy wood table and chairs reminded me of the 'old Wild West style' local restaurants in yellowstone national park in the US. We ordered mostly seafood dishes and tom yum soup. The dishes and especially the soups were pretty spicy and tasted good and portions were reasonable. The quality was decent (above average to pretty good). The service was a little slow and there was a lack of attention by the servers. Even though we preferred better service but it was nothing out of the ordinary that we have experienced in Asian restaurants in the US. Given the reasonable prices ($48 US for 4 people) it was a decent choice of Thai food in Cape Panwa.
