I had a very enjoyable meal here with my husband. The place is perfect for a sunset cocktail followed by dinner, watching the sun sink into the Andaman Sea. The views are amazing. The food is delicious and the wine list is extensive. I've eaten at a number of Michelin rated and hatted restaurants and the food here compares well. Excellent value also in comparison with similar quality western restaurants.

“Atmosphere was nice, food was good, service was average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Mom Tri’s is supposed to be the place to hit up for that romantic, scenic dinner where you can be wined and dined to your heart’s content. From the onset things were looking great. We were picked up by their car service and taken to the restaurant where we enjoyed some lovely cocktails in the bar as we listened to the pianist play some beautiful sounds.

We were then taken to our seats overlooking the ocean. While it was too dark to see the view, the sound of the waves crashing on the ocean was quite lovely.

For entrée we ordered the goats cheese with date and the peanut satays. Both entrees were quite good. The ingredients were fresh and it seemed the chefs had experimented with what would work well, using different flavours in the cheese dish.

For main we had the green curry salmon and masaman lamb shank. Neither myself or my partner are ones to order salmon when out, but thought we’d give this dish a go. I’m glad we did. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the thai green curry flavours were well-infused throughout the sish. It was the best meal of the night. The lamb shank meat was fantastic, but the dish was let-down by the masaman sauce. The curry had the consistency of very runny gravy and had no flavour at all. There wasn’t even a hint of peanut flavour, the dish’s main ingredient.

The dishes were presented very well with a lot of care put into how they were presented. The portion sizes were good and the atmosphere was nice. Little touches like the free bread with spreads and roses for the ladies were nice.

All of the waiters bar one were not friendly or helpful. There was one waiter in particular who was so bad that I just couldn’t stand to look at him. Well done to the young, energetic waiter whose good hospitality picked up the terrible efforts of his colleagues.

For our two entrees, two mains, two desserts and a couple of cocktails we paid approximately $200 AUD.

Based on the quality of the food, price and atmosphere would I return? No.

“Spectacular setting... food good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Mom Tri's was recommended to us by fellow traveler's whilst my husband and I were in Phuket. The setting of the restaurant was fabulous overlooking Kata Noi beach. The service was excellent, polite but non intrusive. The only reason this is not a 5 star review is because the food was good but not excellent. However I would be happy to recommend this restaurant to any couples looking for a romantic atmosphere.

“Amazing food, service & view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

We decided on Mom Tri's just because of the location but it is so much more than that! We were greeted by a pianist playing in the background & invited to take a drink before dinner. After selecting a bottle of wine the waiter was back within 5 minutes with the bottle and an ice bucket (which was definitely needed!), in the ice bucket was a fresh red rose. We had a drink in the bar area over looking the stunning ocean rocks & were served complimentary nibbles (dried anchovies with kafir lime & peanuts, delicious!)
We were then seated right at the edge of the outdoor balcony & had the most attentive waiter all evening. The food was just devine, the coconut lobster to die for & the roast duck spring rolls just mouth-wateringly good! We totally enjoyed our evening & will be back next time.
