This restaurant is close to the Katathani Beach Resort and we ended up eating there three times. Great selection of reasonably priced TThai dishes. There were also a number of dishes for those that did not eat Thai food.

Brillant I loved this place there was something for the entire family to eat and we were a huge group! The seafood is fresh and they don't overpower it with flavors so you can taste the freshness of the fish and Lobster. Remember to book it gets really busy!

Good food, good service and great value for money. We ate at the Patong restaurant before going to the Simon Cabaret Show(there is an Orchid restaurant at Kata/Karon aswell)

We enjoyed really good service in this restaurant opposite the Kata Thani hotel; good food speedy service until today. First course came and went in 10 minutes - fine! We then waited 40 minutes for our main course which clearly had been sitting a while in the kitchen and was cold. In between time everyone else who arrived well after us got served!
Politely we asked for this to be heated up which took another 10 minutes in between which time I spoke to the Manager.
Sadly, he displayed no interest in this service failure and, very sadly, it completely changed our opinion of the restaurant which had been good. The staff were all smiles when getting you into the restaurant but as soon as something goes wrong they couldn't care less. Sad because we enjoyed the food but will not return

We've been to Phuket maybe 6 or 7 times in the 5 years we've lived in Thailand, almost always staying in the Kata/Karon Beach area. This is some of the better food we've had in Phuket.
We had a hard time finding this place even though it was just around the corner (literally) from our hotel. (Sugar Palm Grand Hillside - DON'T go there.)
It's off a little soi off the main road.
Anyway, the food was good (Chicken Satay was the best of what we ordered) and the prices were reasonable for Phuket. And it all seemed to be fresh (Which is hard to find in the "shoulder season" of a touristy town. I didn't see the usual spicy Thai fair we usually do but we weren't really looking for it. The staff was very friendly, smiling and eager to please. Would we go back again? Probably so, because we know what to expect and the food was fresh. Maybe not "the best Thai food we've ever had" (remember we've been here 5 yrs) but definitely not the worst. I'd say a step or 2 above mid-range, which is pretty good for the touristy town of Phuket...
