“Best Thai food we've eaten!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I visited this restaurant after a day at the beach. We were there before 7pm which happened to be 'happy hour' so everything on the menu was 99 baht.

The venue was a lovely relaxing place and service was fast & very attentive. The entertainment was unobtrusive with a chilled out acoustic set which was nice.

From the menu we had prawn phad Thai, chicken masaman & a soup (which unfortunately we didn't write down the name of), it was simply the best Thai food we've ever eaten! The spices & flavours were incredible.

I think this was the only time we saw a food receipt less than 1000 baht during our stay, so fantastic value too! Oh and the nicest glass of red wine I found on phuket!

Really can't recommend this restaurant enough!

“Good toilet, average everything else”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

We ate at 6pm, drawn in by the specials on Thai food. The toilet was good with soap and running water. The service was flat and disinterested, and the food was below average for what I've had (though the portions were large). My wife ordered fish which was deep fried portions of batter. Like other reviews, it is hard to identify where food or water poisoning comes from but for me, 8 hours after the meal I was affected.

“One of the better meals in Kata”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We had lunch at this restaurant while staying in Kata. The food tasted very good and the Massaman curry we had here was one of the best we've eaten in Thailand. The prices are far too high for being a restaurant in Thailand and the only reason why we went here was that the had a lunch promotion where all thai-dishes cost 99 THB.

“Not sure what the fuss is about?”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

I would not rate this as one of the best meals as others have. We have been in Thailand for a couple of weeks now. The food was okay. Chicken a little tough in all dishes, was tasty but not great. The Penang had no vegetables, and had no spice to it!

This place is busy, good to get a seat outside so you can listen to the band.

Cheap cocktails were a plus.
