Had a delicious lunch here. The Thai food was all great and the drinks were delicious. Our waitress was friendly and helpful, she explained lots of things on the menu and the service was prompt. The prices are great as well, probably because it's a little out of town. Thanks a lot, will come here again if we return to Kata.

My husband and I read the reviews before decided where to eat at Kata because the nights before we were just unlucky with the places we have chosen. This place wasnt the exception. The food tastes like nothing, really cero taste. We traveled around Thailand 1 month, and this is everything but good authenthic food. The people are super friendly, they have kind of good atmosphere but the food, really was so desappointing. If you are looking for AUTHENTIC THAI FOOD, this is not the place.

Dear Heidelberg
As you well know I am the owner.(chai) Thank you for your generally lukewarm comments regarding your opinion of our restaurant. I seen your review.
My personal habit like to travel. Especially around in Thailand and also like to eat good foods.
That why make me start to restaurant business.

“Not sure why this is No.1” Many reason from customer to give us good and Ok. I understand thai food much spicy sometime. But for tourist not too spicy. May in your taste not strong like thai


Maybe it’s because some people like us! Why? Well, my management, staff and I work incredibly hard.” Further, it’s just our turn! Everyone gets a shot at the top! Be happy for us!



“The ambience and decoration local this style .
I don’t know to your menu you try. But everything we are looking for the best from market and quality
Price of seafood or prawn better than other local restaurant.

over the past 2 and half year for the kitchen kata beach and it’s good of you to appreciate it.

“…the food is reasonable.”
Better to come again and try to different On Menu on your value holiday.
It that good to come to make reserve table with send e mail or call to the restaurant. Because we can plan and foods not hurry to cooking.
Best Regards.

My husband and friends stumbled on Kitchen Kata one day when they were out and about and then realised it was one of the restaurants I had found on Trip Advisor. They enjoyed their meal so much that we ended up getting take away for lunch on our last day. We had a scooter so we scootered down, placed our order, chatted to the owner, then went for a scoot around and came back and picked up a delicious meal. We got back to our villa with our goods and everyone raved about the delicious omlette that we had ordered. Everything else was great too but the omlette was yumo! Total bill was about 30AUD (from memory) and that was for 7 adults and 2 children and we were all super full!
Will definately head back next time we are there.

We came here after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. The staff are friendly, helpful and speak excellent english. The food was reasonably priced, and delicious.

It's always the little things that count - for instance they gave us a plate of watermelon to finish off our meal, and checked in with us numerous times to ensure that the food was of good quality.

Although it is open air, the Wifi is great/fast and it is pretty cool with all the fans.

Overall it certainly deserves it's number one spot - we will be returning and maybe for a cooking class :)

The great reviews for The Kitchen are all true, we promise!

With great service (even a complimentary ride there and back from Chai, the friendly owner), beautiful, authentic food served with a smile and a great, relaxed atmosphere we can highly recommend making this your #1 choice to visit if you're in the area.

Thank you for a great evening!
