“Best food”

Sugar and Spice - Casa del Sol Kata Beach
Price range: $1 - $12
Cuisines: American, Italian, Russian, Thai
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Families with children
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
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.

“Best food”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Great find of a restaurant tucked away just off the main road. Thai food really tasty; the best we had over the 2 weeks we were away. Also reasonably priced. Also catered for non Thai enthusiasts like my daughter who loved the pasta dishes. Would have eaten there every night of our holiday had we discovered it at the beginning of our stay. Well worth a visit!

“Deserves the good ranking at TA”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

I have eaten at the 14 highest ranked restaurants in Kata. (And some more!) Except for S&S. So I gave it a try and was not disappointed. The food was very good, the owner and staff friendly.
I'll be back. (To some of the 14 others I will not go back.)

“Good, simple Thai food, and a smile!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

We arrived 17 strong to Sugar and Spice, and luckily they had a room upstairs which was air conditioned. It lacked the same atmosphere as downstairs, with no music. With that many kids at the table, however, music would not have helped a great deal! (though for the next time, it would be nice).

They were overwhelmed, but always remained friendly and the food arrived more or less in the right order, though one dish never arrived at all. The food itself was fresh and tasty.

It is shocking how many restaurants in this corner of Phuket cannot make simple Thai food properly or serve it with a smile - the legendary 'Thai Smile' seems to have been completely lost in Kata. Thankfully, considering the size of our group, they coped well, were courteous and the food was good. So worth the trip.

Happy you came in to see us with your big group and it was a pleasure to serve you. Next time, with a big group like that, call us first and we'll do a better job! :-)

For other travelers, we do take reservations, our phone number is on the contact information above. If we know in advance we can make sure we are prepared to handle your group as well as taking care of the other tables. We like to give everyone equal service.

We have music upstairs as well as downstairs, if it's not turned on please ask the staff, sometimes they forget (and I forget) to turn it on.

Very happy you enjoyed our service with a smile and I hope to see you again one day.

Best wishes,

Ohn

“Friendly staff Fantastic food”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

We've visited Kata Beach every year for the last 5 years and we accidentally stumbled across this restaurant only this visit, we've been twice in two days.
The manager is very good at her job, very apologetic about the wait for food as there was a function on upstairs, definitely worth the wait.
The taste is unreal. I like spicy foods and I got spicy... No need to add other chilli...
Highly recommended - very reasonable prices.

Thank you for your review and happy you found us. You might have tried us before, for three years we were at the Dome Resort in Kata Center. We moved to our new location this last July. Hopefully we'll stay here for a while!

We'll see you again!

Best wishes,

“Best Thai food in phuket”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

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.
