“This place is "the business"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We have just ate here and all 5 of our heads exploded at once. Food was mind blowing even though the service was a little hindered by only the chef Bud working by her self!

“Except a long wait and fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This place served some of the best food we ate in the whole of Thailand. The restaurant is located on the main street into the beach and seems to be run by a mother and daughter team. From the street it looks very unremarkable with only basic tables and with a open kitchen set up inside the restaurant. The service is slow as the mother/daughter do a modified tag team of taking orders and cooking. You will wait a long time for your meal, particularly if this place is busy as it seems to be becoming with the increasingly positive response from TA reviewers, but once you get your food you will not care. It is also very well priced (about half the cost of other highly rated TA restaraunts ie Luna Lounge).They cook it in the kitchen right in front of you and you can see them preparing it from scratch rather than most other Thailand restaurants that pre-prepare it and reheat it to save themselves from 'service is too slow complaints'. Because of this the meals presented are super tasty but it can take a while to get to you, which seems to be the main criticism on TA by some. Regardless, we loved it and came back to this place 'again and again'.

“great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Amazing food (the best i had in Thailand), amazing owner. Everything is homemade and fresh, you can actually see the lady who owns and runs it cooking your meal from scratch. It's very small and cozy... and beautiful, went there for 4 nights in a row and tried different dishes....everything was perfect!

“Best value for money!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The owner was lovely, yeah we waited for a bit to receive our food but that's because she cooks from scratch and everything is so fresh. Had the shrimp pad Thai and it was beautiful, best pad Thai I've had in Thailand and the cheapest! The place doesn't look great from the road but don't let that put you off! Be sure to try the sticky rice pudding with mango too, delicious!

“Once was enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Friendly people running this restaurant but the food was not more than average and we had to wait very long before being served.
