This ISN'T a place that should be visited just once. Each item on the menu had it's own charm and fantastic taste, so try to order everything on the menu and FYI the pork belly will melt in your mouth. Great job guys!! You will defiantly be seeing me again and again

Been there last week with a couple of friends, we enjoyed very much the easy going atmosphere and the great food. This is one of the only places you can even can have dinner alone without getting bored in Phuket. It is great to watch the chefs work in the open kitchen. Price was also very reasonable! Don't forget to reserve or come in early as this place is quite small.

I went to the opening, where the canapes were a myriad of wonderfully-combined tastes. I've eaten two further meals there since the opening just a month or so ago and find the menu really quite special! Chef Daniel and Thomas (his trusty side-kick and drinks guru) have created a restaurant with style and flair. If this was not in a car-park and rather on the beach, it would be comparable to the best cuisine experience on the island.

Service needs a bit of work and the situation is not 100%-glitz, but its a bit like going to a car-park bistro in the US and finding an icon of style and taste (I am talking food and design) in the space.

Much of the internal decor is by the famed Phuket-based artist John Underwood, who has fitted-out many a five-star resort around the world, including Indigo Pearl. The music was hip-cool, and the open kitchen was fun - glad I am not a chef!

I loved the Nori & Sesame Wrapped Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce, Tempura veg, Jasmin Rice Cake and Wasabi Aioli, the Rum Cured Beef Carpaccio with Artichokes, Rockets, Chimi Churri and Parmesan was drizzled perfecly in Lemon (I did the drizzling!). I downed a few LIIT's (long island iced teas for the uninitiated) and had a scoop each of the Caramel/Sea Salt icea cream and the Olive Oil ice-cream!

I found the pricing comparible with the excellent food, but a little higher than what one would expect considering the situation of the restaurant - put it on a beach and double the charge 'tis all!! Overall an excellent place to eat, a bit of funk and lots of taste...

Its very name and modest premises seem to defiantly challenge you to judge it solely by the excellence of its cooking and nothing else. On that score alone this restaurant is unquestionably Number One in Cherngtalay/Bangtao and one of the best in Phuket.

The salmon - Nori wrapped round pieces- served with teriyaki sauce and light tempura was superb. So was the seabass served on top of mashed potatoes, young asparagus and spinach. The special style of brownie with berries and melted chocolate was delightful.

The Woolshed Sauvignon blanc was good and the service supervisded by Khun Aw was pleasant and professional. Overall, an unpretentious place with a friendly ambience and great food.
