Description: We're at the end of Soi Casa del Sol (a large hotel) in Kata Beach, across from Club Med, behind Buffalo Steakhouse, about 50 meters from the main road. A traditional Thai restaurant located in the heart of Kata Beach. Surprisingly, it's difficult to find 'real' Thai food in Kata any longer, much of it is over priced and watered down. The concept of Sugar and Spice is good Thai food, the way we Thai people eat it, sold at a price that is affordable. We serve all your favorites, and special orders are welcome. We also have some Western food for those feeling a little homesick and wanting comfort food after a few days of eating Thai.

Have been to Thailand 5 times and this was the tastiest Thai food I've eaten. Cheap prices and friendly service. Clearly deserves it's place in the top of the best restaurants. Can't wait to eat here again. Wish I was staying in Kata.

“Great food, well worth a visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

A small cafe type restaurant. To be honest the restaurant is basic but the food is fabulous and great value for money. We would definately return

We are a family of four with two young girls. we had no problem finding something from the menu that suited everyone and once we had ordered the food was quickly prepared. The fruit smoothies are great too!!

A definate if you are going to Kata for the day, only a short walk from the beach

“Just good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have just spent two weeks in Kata and during this time we came across Sugar and Spice.

The menu for the place is laid out well and has a good mix of Thai and Western dishes. All the dishes we had were great quality but I will suggest the Italian carbonara, a fantastic dish (well done folk).

The place is as suggested down a soi next to a hotel but unlike other reviews I don't see the problem with this. They staff are very good at taking your orders and pretty much leave you to get on with your meal after it's served which I like because theres no need to ask if everything's ok I would let them know if it was not. Special praise for the young male waiter ( never got his name) for being a good laugh and for his service style. All in all there are bigger more expensive places to eat in Kata but Sugar and Spice does for me for price and quality, thanks guys x

Thank you very much for giving us such a nice review. We're glad you enjoyed everything and we hope you'll come back again.

You're waiter was "M" or "Em" the only male waiter we have. He's been with me for a while and in fact, he's from Myanmar! Very nice guy and does a great job, very hard worker. We're glad you enjoyed him.

Best wishes,

“Nice Casual Thai Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Sugar and Spice had a nice varied menu to please every taste. Obviously Russians make up a great number of their customers because the menu was in both English & Russian. The food was delicious and inexpensive. I had a Thai pineapple/shrimp salad which was very tasty.

The staff work very hard to provide a nice atmosphere and to cater to many choices. I would not recommend the pizza which is prepared with manufactured crust and cooked in a small toaster oven. The dough is undercooked and flavourless (also very expensive compared to the other marvelous dishes). Stick with Thai food!

I would definitely recommend this little out of the way restaurant.

Thank you for your very kind review and so happy you enjoyed my place. Sorry about the pizza, we'll work on that. Our kitchen in the new place is smallish so we don't have room for a proper oven, but we'll see what we can do over the low season to get our pizzas back up to where they should be. Thanks for pointing that out.

Yes, as with many places in Phuket, we do have quite a few Russian customers and we're happy to have them. They are very nice people, we enjoy having guests from all over the world! Russians need their own menu because often times they can't read English (as we can't read Russian.) Having a menu in their language helps to make sure they get the right order. We also have a Chinese menu but we don't use it as we don't get many Chinese speaking people in for some reason.

We also have the menu in Thai. :-)

Have a great rest of your trip and we'll see you back again one day we hope!

Best wishes,

Ohn
