“Great service, lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Beautiful Thai food served by gracious, welcoming hosts. We ate the steamed seafood with red curry sauce and a chicken green curry with steamed rice. Delicious! Mango daiquiris and ice cold Singha beer.Simple food, beautifully cooked and careful, attentive service.

“Don't go!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Should've known not to go there. We first started with spring rolls. Those were stuffed with noodles, never had that before. Chicken tom yum lacked flavor. Ordered fried fish and beef with basil...never received it. Took 50 min and still no food. They kept saying 5 minutes which kept adding up. We decided to leave. If you are really hungry look pass lucky tom, I'm sure there are better places.

“Super dooper yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

My partner and I are sitting in our hotel with big smiles on our faces and happy bellys. We have just eaten at Lucky Toms and had some lovely meals. Firstly we were greeted by a sweet young lady with a lovely genuine smile. There was no harassment or hard sell to come inside while we looked at the menu at the entrance. We both found some interesting looking dishes and had read good reviews on TA so had no hesitation in going in.

Both of our meals were really tasty and a good portion size. Not too much, not too little. I had the prawn, potato, and peanut massaman curry and my partner had the noodles with vegetables and gravy. Because they were both tasty dishes we then indulged in dessert (which we don't normally do) of fried ice cream and sticky rice with mango. The desserts were actually very large and were also really tasty and a satisfying way to end the meal.

We were the only people at the restaurant and our food was served promptly.

Someone else commented that the staff avoided contact.... I didn't find this was the case at all and thought they were just giving us space and time to eat without being in your face. When we were leaving it was smiles all round, even from the chef who came out to say thanks and goodbye.

Prices were the same as experienced all over Kata - about AUD $20 for two mains, two desserts and two drinks.

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Place was empty but we decided to give it a shot. We ordered two dishes. Beef matsaman curry and fried beef with garlic and pepper. Both were very tasty!! Would eat there again. Had a nice chat with the owner who spoke a little English. Worth a visit if ur walking past.

“1,5 hour wait for main course.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Average place staffed with guest workers from Burma and a looong wait for our main course.
Staff was avoiding contact not even asking if we wanted something more to drink.
Will not be going there again any time soon.
