“Amazing find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

We found Poo's restaurant as we were on a Phuket heritage trail tour and this was where we stopped for dinner. It was amazing! Our guide ordered a bunch of different dishes for us to try and every single one was fabulous!
The one that really stood out was the tamarind prawns. Soooo good. This is definitely worth a visit as we finally got to see a little bit of real Phuket life - away from the hustle of Patong. Cannot recommend highly enough!

“Excellent”

BBQ prawns and the steamed fish were fresh as can be. Excellent service. They didn't take credit cards but we're willing to take me to a Fx change place. In the end they they accepted USD.

“Best Authentic Thai Food I've Ever Had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

We selected Poo Nurntong Restaurant based on the TA reviews and you guys were spot on.

The food was absolutely amazing. Thai food is my favorite and the meal we had at Poo Nurntong was uncomparable. We had the Tom Yum soup, BBQ fresh prawns, Pad Thai noodles, Beef Curry and Panang Chicken. All of the dishes were cooked to perfection. We were so impressed that we ordered another Tom Yum soup and Pad Thai for take out.

The service was excellent as well. Poo has a way of making you feel like part of their family. Our kids kept saying how nice she was.

The value for money was unbelievable as our bill was only $35 including a few alcoholic beverages.

The location of the restaurant was a little out of the way but was not a big deal. We provided our taxis driver with their number and he found it without difficulty. We made the trip from Kamala Beach and we are so glad that we did so.

“Great food, very friendly staff & nice view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Stumbled upon Poo during my trip to Phuket hence decided to try it, despite the uphill walk it was worth it. The food was amazing, every dish was fantastic, their thai iced milk tea was to die for. I would recommend their Phad Thai & Tom Yum soup. Value for money! Went back a few days later to try other dishes. The lady staff, apparently is the owner was very friendly and hospitable. Would definitely go back again when I'm back at Phuket.
