We had been walking to the main shopping centre looking to have a casual lunch when we happened to see this place (being orange you can't miss it). This is a restaurant & cooking school combined that from the outside didn't look like it was open so luckily we knocked on the door and was greeted by the owner.

This is a very clean, bright friendly place with the restaurant and cooking part separated by a door. The menu is very simple but had all the favourites and the prices are very reasonable.

The four of us ordered different dishes including satay to start however they do things a little different here as the satay comes on a plate and not a stick. These were excellent and then it was on to our Pad thai and chicken curry with rice. All the dishes were clean, simple and very flavourful.

The whole meal cost us about 720B which is about AUD$30 for 4 people. We got to talking with the owner who was very nice and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a light lunch or early dinner.

We had eaten here two years ago on our previous visit to Phuket and came again. Their food is so fresh, tasty and beautiful. The restaurant is air-conditioned and very comfortable to eat and drink. The service was outstanding and the host was talking to us about the history of the business. They also offer cooking classes and have recipe books for sale.

We went here during Sonkran soaking wet. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and even helped the kids refill their water guns after dinner.
Mango sticky rice is a must try but all the meals we ordered were delicious:)

Sawasdee Ka Tom & Elisabeth
thanks for taking your time to share your experience with Pum, and terribly sorry things went wrong with you… We are in Thailand and sometimes the banking system doesn’t work well. There have been confusions, between your booking and your friends booking, which we hadn’t seen. We are sorry for this, and the order has already been given to the bank to return the money, but this may take some time, maybe 2 weeks.
Again, very sorry, we apologise, and will try to improve our procedures to make sure this doesn’t happen again, thanks for pointing it out and enabling us to do better in the future.

At first my family were hesitant, but once we got there they loved every second of it! Mike and the team at Pum were the nicest people we’d met in Thailand. The place was clean and the food was delish!
No hidden costs, no pushing for us to buy anything. We did get the cooking book because we want to ensure we make the dishes back home.
