“Pleasantly surprised! Great food. Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

You may feel unsure by its unassuming appearance and its quiet location tucked away at the end of the alley. Once you there however, Lek (?) the owner will make you feel very welcome. The food is great-tasting, traditional Thai and it's excellent value for money. Definitely recommend it!

“Amazing authentic thai food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Lair lay tong is by far the best place for fresh authentic Thai food, very reasonably priced (80-150 baht per dish) and extremely friendly staff. Menu has a huge range of meals, and drinks including my favourite freshly squeezed juice!

Me and my boyfriend ate here every day while in Patong! By far our favourite place, I recommend for anyone who travels to Patong to try a meal at Lair Lay Tong! :)

Will be coming back here for sure!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Come here for genuine Thai food at very good prices. Something different from the usual tourist restaurants. Its right down at the bottom of the road past the Orchids and the Sea Hagg

“Excellent food, lovely service and quiet...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Very nice food, traditional Thai and a hard to beat price. We had Tom Yum Goong and Tom Kha and they were fantastic. You can tell its a good one when locals are regularly in and out taking food away. Definitely visit again, it's quiet and very clean and comfortable.

“Fantastic food at great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Incredible food at really reasonable prices. I imagine this is what proper Thai home cooking would taste like. It's run by a really sweet lady and it feels like your visiting a friend's house for dinner.

Language might be an issue, but they are very well organised and have an album with pictures of food in their menu. So it's really easy to order.

We went back twice in the same day and would have returned again if we had more time in Phuket.
