We walked to this restaurant from the boat lagoon. We had Massaman Gai and Jungle Chicken curry - both were excellent. We returned on another night because we were so impressed. The women who run this place are very friendly and helpful and are happy to describe the different menu items. There were lots of other westerners dining. Good food at very reasonable prices. What more could you want?

I was on my way to the airport, and remembered this restaurant from when I visited the Boat Lagoon the previous day. We ordered the Red Curry with Roasted Duck & Pineapples (THB150) and it was truly my favourite curry from the entire trip. And I've had quite a few! Their Masaman Chicken & Potato Curry was also one of the best Masaman I've ever had (THB130). Also had a Pad Thai for THB60 which was very nicely done, not too oily yet flavourful.

For the last two years, this is where I choose to eat (and enjoy the free wi-fi) 3 days a week with occasional take-out to fill the fridge during in-between times.

For yachties, the restaurants inside Boat Lagoon and RPM are either ridiculously overpriced Western fare with hidden costs, or 3 outdoor slightly run down Thai cafes (near the water tower in Boat Lagoon). This is THE hangout for BIS teachers, students, and yachties simply because the food's good, clean, inexpensive Western and Thai dishes. You can eat al fresco on the porch, or in airconditioned comfort inside.

I strongly recommend the BLT sandwiches (50B), very filling chicken massaman (110B), and chicken salad (110B) (like a chef's salad / caesar salad with vinegrette dressing, not like mayonnaise / potato salad). My landlord moved to Phuket 6 years ago and said it's the best chicken salad he's had in all that time. Other friends swear by Chili's "gammon and eggs" (180 baht), fruit shakes (50 baht), and tofu pad thai (50 baht).

You'll feel quite full for 100 to 200 baht. They also sell beer and wine, but this is mainly a family restaurant, not a bar. Consider avoiding Wednesday nights, because that's when the place is standing-room-only full of BIS teachers and their families.

We had four Thai dishes and then apple pie and ice cream for dessert. A great combination. The Thai food was lovely and fresh and as good as any we had in more expensive restaurants. Great service and friendly people. Also got a good notice board for cheap rentals and car hire etc: if you are there for a longer time. Got the feeling there where a lot of regulars there.
