Decided to go here after reading all the reviews and were not at all disappointed. It's a little out of town but totally worth it! Poo is such a kind lady, she makes you feel more than welcome and gives the restaurant a real homely feel. The restaurant boasts views over patong and the food is both delicious and very affordable. Very glad we stumbled across this beautiful woman and her delicious Thai restaurant!

We went to Poo's after reading mostly great reviews. I thought, gee, people on TA are impressed too easily. Not the case. I couldn't believe what a warm, genuine welcome we were given on arrival. Poo made us feel like we had just arrived home after a being away for years!

We sat on the deck, admiring the view of Patong, and watching fireworks. We ordered both the spring rolls and satay chicken for starters, and they were delicious.

It began to rain, hard. Poo apologized as if she were to blame. She moved us inside the covered area, and closed the tarps to shelter us from blowing rain and wind. She is the true example of a hostess who really cares about every guest,

All up, we had the two starters, a whole steamed fish with chili, garlic, and ginger (yum!), two salads (Thai beef and a Larb salad), prawns with crispy garlic, three coconuts, two large beers, and a fruit plate. It all added up to only 1300bht. Much cheaper than any food down in patong, and a nice escape from the chaos of the main zone! The food was also so fresh, delicious, and authentic. Potions are sharing size, some almost like a tapas plate, but so cheap, it makes it so you can afford to sample a wide range of the menu.

It is a little hard to find. We gave the phone number to our driver who called and asked the way. It was 300bht from patong, because it's "up and over the hill".

The trip is well worth it. We are going back tomorrow night, and have already pre-ordered a lobster to celebrate (although we aren't happy about it) out last night in Thailand.

We went here after reading reviews and we weren't disappointed. It was a little hard to find as address is wrong but definitely worth it. Poo met us at our taxi and was very friendly. The food was delicious and great prices. Yummy authentic Thai food with an amazing view. The terrace had a nice breeze when we were there and would be beautiful at subset. Thanks Poo.

Our family went to Poo's restaurant 3 times on our recent trip. The first thing that strikes you is the owner's (yes, her name is Poo) warmth and gratitude just for coming. And it's 10-fold when you return. Food is lovely, beautiful views of surrounding areas, and great prices ! Our family of 5 each ate a meal, with some (non-alcoholic ...this time) drinks - total came to 880 baht. Less than $30 AUD. NOTE : the address as reported on trip advisor is wrong. She has moved to a new venue ... At Soi Kuang Yang. (this could be name of suburb or road, unsure) Further away but worth the visit. We paid 300 baht each way, from Patong. Well worth it ... We did it 3 times :) search for restaurant name on Facebook.

We visited the restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed! Poo was a fantastic host, very welcoming, and very attentive. The food was delicious, well priced, decent portion size. I was ravenous so I ordered 2 meals - the prawns with garlic and pepper, and the pad Thai with chicken. The spring rolls are also delicious. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and would definitely go back! The map on Tripadvisor is wrong, but the taxis around the area generally know where it is. Take the phone number just in case. Would definitely recommend to anyone...
