This place is very dirty but the food is great! If you want a great cooked Thai authentic meal this is the place to go. Very cheap very friendly good size portions definitely worth trying out!

If you want delicious, authentic Thai cooking them Mama Pooh's is the place for you. Prices are extremely reasonable and the food is out of this world! Mama Pooh's has a shabby charm that makes the experience all the more authentic. GO!

Mama Pooh's is a small restaurant by the main road in Sri Thanu / Haad Yao. I went there because it had so many great reviews here and I was not disappointed. The place is very authentic with friendly staff whose English skills are very limited but they have numbers in the menu so you just write down your choice of food and drinks, mark how spicy you would like your food to be (1 star for mild up to 5 stars for hot spicy) and wait for Mama Pooh to cook for you. They have a large menu with not only the common Thai dishes you can get everywhere. Sometimes they even have special deals. On my last visit they said they got a discount on crabs and you get more crab meat than usual with every crab dish order (I totally recommend the curry powder crab - so delicious!!!) Can't wait to go back to my favorite Thai restaurant on this island!

Yes, the food is OK, yes it is cheap, but the place is horrible. I can't understand why it is still so popular. I have been there many times, I go once a year to see if they have cleaned it up yet. they haven't. There is junk and rubbish everywhere. What annoys me is that 4 people working for 1 day could make the place 100% better. So why don't they? Most Thai restaurants are basic, but the owners make the best of what they have. At this place they make no effort at all. They could tidy and clean the place up easily. I don't care how good the food is…..and most people say it is good. I just refuse to go there. It's a classic case of Western inverted snobbery - it's chic to eat in a slum. If enough people complain, especially regulars, it could be so nice. I have no personal beef, it just amazes me that the dirtiest place on the island can make it to 24 of Tripadvisor.
