Situated in a quiet street one would never think that the restaurant would be much bigger inside, filled with plants and garden decor.
The staff were welcoming. There were three levels; the ground floor had fountains and plants , the next floor where we were seated had antique pieces, even the tables were styled with foot lever of the old sewing machines. There were stairs leading to a garden terrace which had outdoor seating as well. All very thoughtfully done keeping with the Thai theme.
To top it all the food was amazing too.
The crabs in black pepper was the highlight. We also ordered just steam crabs for our daughter who felt every bite was out of this world.
The fried rice too was excellent. The prawn crispy triangle pieces were good too.
The tiger prawns was the only item which was not that great as it lacked flavour.
All in all the food was really super  and very reasonably priced.
A visit well worth it in all aspects.

We came to this local thai food restaurant yesterday, with a great hope for good thai food, as it was recommended to us. Even the phadthai with narrow noodles was untasty . We complain of that, than it was changed with a new phadthai, this time with large noodles, as we asked before. This dish was better, but still regular.
The Mango salad was okay, but not as it was recommended.
Also the staffed pineapple with rice was very small, without the taste of the pineapple. Etc etc...
We can’t recommend this restaurant, although it has 24 years of service. Sorry for that.

We first visited the Natural about 20 years ago when they first opened. It was an unusual and funky place (in a good way) then, and I am happy to report that it is very much the same now. The food is excellent and quite reasonably priced. We stuck to old standbys like Gai Pad Med Ma Muang, Som Tam, and Nam Prik. This is authentic Thai food and one of the few restaurants in Phuket that I don't have to ask for extra Prik Nam Pla on the side (i.e. the dishes are phet mak mak). The portions are large and we actually had to take some left overs home with us. The service is good, despite the staff having to carry orders up multiple levels. The mango sticky rice is quite famous here, and rightfully so.

Half of the experience of this restaurant is the atmosphere; it is super quirky and unique, with lots of nature and lots of paraphernalia. It was very fun to just look around in every direction and view the different decorations. We were seated next to a small pond with a fountain and koi fish.
The service was excellent and all of the staff spoke good English. There are a bit less vegan items on the menu than I originally believed, however they were very accommodating and I'm sure many dishes with fish sauce or meat could have it removed or replaced with soy sauce. The drinks were also delicious and very reasonably priced.
Everyone enjoyed the vibe, the food, and the service, would definitely return!

Got recommended this place from some expats.
Lovely quirky restaraunt built into a tree with multiple levels and water features.
Food was traditional delicious Thai - just be warned as they love their chilli so if you don’t , ask them to go easy with it .
Staff very friendly .
