Decent authentic thai food, great service, good massages, drinks ok (ie. g&t's and mojitos weren't consistent)....order beer instead. A solidly run family business.

We have been a few times for a drink, and the staff are friendly. Bit disappointed by the last visit where they charged us completely randomly (wrong) - so we left rather than get involved in a debate. What a shame....

Most patronised in the village by foreign tourists. Good. Basic Thai food. Family business also include taxi service to other parts of the island, massage and tour coordinators. Friendly. Owners and staff able to communicate in basic english. As a practice in the island no one excrept hotels give receipts. For peace of mind do review the costing before paying. Prices of food, drinks and services are generally that of Bangkok mid range prices.It is not any cheaper in the rest of rhe island for an average foreign tourist.

During our two week stay in Thong Nai Pan Noi we tested several restaurants. One that was always busy was the Jip Shop.
Animated by Jips employees we entered the open built restaurant. We were immediately invited to a game of Jenga while
waiting for our drinks and food. I have to admit, this was always quite entertaining when on a different table a Jenga Tower
came down. If you come here, expect a warm atmosphere and also expect to find cats, dogs and even rabbits.

Their food is delicious. Surprisingly after seeing the open kitchen with not the hygienic standards we are used to from home.
But Pu (the kitchen chef and sister of Jip) gives her very best at being creative and presenting the food in a great looking way.

In the back part of the restaurant, Khung and her sister offer amazing massages.
Jip also offers days trips, taxi service and much more.
We booked twice a personal driver who took us one day to HaadRin and the other time to Thong Sala. The driver was very
reliable, professional, and most important a safe driver. Highly recommended.

All in all, we came back almost every day. Even if it was just for a quick beer.
I think there are many people that envy Jips successful business. That might explain some very personal attacks in previous
Reviews. I cannot confirm any of the negatives mentioned below.
Jip is a business woman and simply has the better strategy than others in the village which shows in the amount of guests
that are there and not elsewhere.
Thanks to Jip, her family and friends we had fun two weeks. We hope to come back soon.

My friends and I loved Jip's shop. Great food (the best Thai I had) and great hosting. Jip is passionate about her restaurant and ensures top class service at very cheap prices. She also arranges taxis at prices better than hotels and her staff also offer Thai and aromatherapy massages. Forget about eating at hotels - we had every meal here. Jip - we will hopefully all be back in the near future!
