“Really Bad Food and Slow Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Came here to eat upon the recommendation of our villa but was very very disappointed.

The service was slow and the food was very disappointing. The curries were all watery and had no taste. The Tom Yum Gung was not spicy and tasteless.

The served us something called the "prawns fried in prawn fat" and the prawns were still raw.

We complained the the staff but their inability to speak English just worsen the situation. Finally when the manager/owner came out she just said that this is how Thai Food is cooked. What rubbish excuse!!

Seriously stay away from this place unless you are a date with bad food...

Thank Christopher H

“One night business: they really don't care if you love it or hate it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

There is nothing I can write which will slow the business at this cafe, which is attached to one of the largest hotels in Phuket Town. Personally I found the wait service incredibly slow, despite the fact staff were standing around and the wait for the food itself made me consult my calendar rather than my watch. The food was okay and the prices the same as every other cafe. If you are staying in Sino House, be more imaginative, there is a whole town of restaurants beyond the doorstep. If you are staying elsewhere save yourself the trek and eat at any one of a million other places like this.
