“Hidden delight”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

I came to this restaurant for takeaway after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed! The service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious--chock full of fresh vegetables and made from scratch--could hear the sounds and smell the awesome fragrances from the kitchen as they prepared it. I ordered the green chicken curry with rice for 15,000/=, and vegetable pad Thai for 7,000/= and have been eating it non-stop since--very generous portions enough for lunch and dinner the next day.

It is located in the shopping arcade just after the Oryx (former Engen) gas station on the road that leads to Kisaase/N. Bypass in Bukoto. To get to this road, if you are heading toward Kabira Country club on Kira road, turn left just before reaching the country club at the junction. Continue til you see Oryx on your right. It is sort of hidden and does not stand out much from the surroundings but has small a patio with outdoor tables under umbrellas. They also deliver.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Great restaurant! The food is amazing and the prices are extremely competitive. Maximum 15.000 UGX for a great meal. The place is a bit 'local', but I really think that only adds to the experience. The staff is wonderful. I would drive across town to eat here. Hope they open a restaurant in the south of Kampala soon.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I have eaten at Thammaphon many times since I found this little gem of a place. I always leave happy and find that the consistency of the food is great. I have tried many dishes from their extensive menu and have never been disappointed. If a posh place is what you are looking for then don't come here. Thammaphon is all about the food and friendly service. Tables are arranged outside of the restaurant under umbrellas during the day and under the stars at night and you can watch as people stroll past and cars whizz by. What I love about the place is that it's not pretentious, it is a roadside cafe where you can relax and watch the world go by while eating some really good food and enjoying a cold drink. If you're not into that sort of environment, they offer to take away or delivery. I must admit, the toilet facility is not for the faint of heart. By village standards it's above average but for many it may not be a pleasant experience. That being said thats not why you would come here. If you are looking for the best Thai meal in Kampala using authentic ingredients, then Thammaphon Thai is your place!

“Wow not bad for UGANDA.”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Real Thai noodles, not spaghetti ! Down-market establishment but
that's presumably why it's still a bargain price-wise. Also a good place for a group party
as the booze is reasonably priced too. Watch-out though.... if you don't like it
spicy hot , you'd better tell the cook in advance.
