“Excellent!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Jit was amazing. Such a funny man, food was awesome! If you're looking for tasty home cooked deliciousness, come here! The glass noodle salad and green curry were exquisite. Not to mention the twisted banana split with coconut icecream. devine. A gem of a local find!

“Great Thai food at a low cost”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Offers a wide range of local Thai at a convenient, extremely low cost. It's no more than a 5 minute walk from the JW Marriott and sits right next to the Marriott, Mai Khao beach. Run by a friendly owner, Jit, and the food is much better than you may expect from first glance of the small but spacious restaurant. The service is great and I would definitely recommend going there for anyone staying nearby for dinner, as the quick and quality service will allow you to make the most of your evening and not take up a lot of time. The hotel taxi said to us that JJ's was closed but when we went to look it was definitely open.

“Underwhelming”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Normally I don't bash small businesses just the big expensive ones that need to up their game but I felt my experience to be well below average . This place does ill service to Thai food so do venture further afield from your hotel in search of a better place.
The staff were friendly the food was not great and the toliets were really gross so go before you get there. You may be seeing a bit of the bathroom long after you leave as well depending on your tolerance levels.
Just not nice ..sorry to the owners but I am sure they can do better especially on the cleanliness levels if not producing more of the food that has made other reviewers gush.

“Great food at an honest price within easy walking distance from Anantara and Marriott”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Great food, honest prices and Thai hospitality from Jit the owner. Great guy who was very helpful to explain menu.
Word of warning... We asked the hotel taxi about JJ and was told it had closed ! We found JJ across the road from rear service entrance to hotel. Recommend the stir fried pork in red curry paste (hot) - was delicious! Will definitely go again .

“Perhaps the Chef was off”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Sampled food there for lunch based on TA reviews. Found food at best average. Fried fish undercooked, had to send back to kitchen. Decided not worth returning for a second meal. Perhaps it was the regular Chef's day-off?
