This restaurant has the most beautiful setting, right on the south end of Kata Beach, and handily next to the Ska Bar. However we found the food variable. While my tempura prawns were delicious, my partner's Thai Green curry with duck was dreadful. There was no edible duck meat, just slices of fat and gristle.

Service was also poor, staff largely unfriendly and disinterested.

There are many restaurants close by with much better food - eg Natalie's.

We won't be back to Mama Kata. If you must go, I'd suggest only trying seafood dishes.

Wonderful food, ambience, view caters for all taste buds from traditional Thai to Western Food. The prawn dishes would recommend.

We choose this restaurant because it was busy and looked nice. We have no idea why so many people were eating here! The service was terrible, mixed up orders and one of the kids meals arrived so late that we were ready to leave. The food was average and the prices higher than we had been paying. The worst meal we had on our 2 week stay.

We picked Mamas @ Kata because it looked busy and clean. I have no idea why so many people were eating there. The service was terrible, mixed up orders and one of the children's meals didn't arrive until we had nearly finished the others. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful and it was by far the worst meal we had on our 2 week stay.

This is a great place to watch the sunset or storm roll in which ever season you stay may depend on the later. Compared to our hotel the beers were a third of the price so we were paying 50baht a beer. Meals here are great and range from 50-180 baht. It's always nice to stay at your hotel and eat or grab room service but if your watching your penny's I suggest getting out and trying mama kata.
