“Execllent authentic Thai food with local specialities”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

My girlfriend and I checked the previous reviews and decided to give it a try. The first impression is exactly what other reviews depicted that its a small, simple, and down to the earth family run restaurant. If you wants anything fancy and swanky this is a place a millions miles away from your expectation. However if you are up for adventure for local food in a restaurant local people would go, this is 100% right place to go.

We chose to sit outside on mats and low stable to enjoy our orders. The feeling is very cool and very close to what we want to get in Phuket after sampling a string of luxury restaurants.

In terms of the cookig, it's wonderfully done so that we cannot resist to order more than what we can usually eat.

Dishes recommendations are grilled shrimps, streamed snappers, grilled chicken leg and lobsters. All the dishes are very affordable.

Definitely would return again during our trip.

“Excellent food, far from the crowds”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

My partner and I very much enjoyed this authentic place in the tranquil south of Phuket. The restaurant is directly located at the seafront of Rawai. All our dishes were excellent (som tam salat, tom yam soup with seafood, grilled king prawns, and a grilled whole snapper) and the service was fine. It’s great for anyone who seeks a breakout from the busy tourist towns on the West coast.

“Amazing!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed January 16, 2012

Me and my hubby had dinner here and it was to die for. The restaurant is very simple but it was one of the best meals we have had in Thailand. It's also very very very cheap so you need to tip well!!
It's family run and they cook all the seafood from the front and his wife cooks in the simple kitchen at the back. This is 100% Thai food and was just great. We're on our last day of holiday today and we have saved tonight to have lobster so Rimhad we will see you soon, get the beers chilling for us!!!!

“Defo worth a visit”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Me and my wife went here for tea one night whilst we were on our honeymoon. As soon as we walked through the door we were made to feel very special at this family run restaurant. Not being a fish or seafood lover I was slightly concerned about the range and choice of food. There was no need to worry there were loads of traditional Thai dish's all of which were amazing. They even made fresh spring rolls for us from scratch. My wife had tiger prawns which even for someone who doesn't like seafood Like myself looked good. We watched him cook the prawns again from scratch (at the front of the restaurant is were all the fish and seafood is cooked). The meal was fantastic and we would defo reccomened. Just to make things that little bit better also was the price it was so cheap under 1000 baht including beer, u almost fell like your pinching the food!!!!!. Thanks guys we will def be back before we return to the U.K
