Was on phi phi island for 3-4 days and easily had 3 meals here. the owner/operator/chef/waitress, was wonderful. her food was fresh and tasty and she was a great host. her prices were low (as customary) and we tipped her very well. I certainly hope she is her and still running her little cafe when i return

We went here last night after looking on TA for authentic Thai food on phi phi (not that easy to get!). It was a set menu for Thai food, starters were ok (fish cakes and spring rolls), girl who was serving was pretty disinterested.
The mains (massaman and another curry) then came. The girl went next door to collect the rice for our dish’s (???) and then the “curries” turned up which were basically just coconut milk with a bit of curry paste lobbed in. The massaman just had chicken and a bit of potato in and the other curry was just chicken with no veg. Awful. We didn’t eat the mains and told the girl that we weren’t paying for them, only what we had eaten/drank. They then proceeded to get another family member/owner to come down from another restaurant to convince us to pay, telling us we must. This place must have either changed hands or the reviews are fakes. No wonder it’s always empty. Avoid.

Hi joanne, your ´re right to come to our restaurant because we have un exellent thai food! But unfortunely a new staff do something wrong and we apologise for that. By now I ´m not in thailand, but the manager take care and discount the main you EAT, I have to said that the others customers who takes a diner in the same time appreciate well their food !!
So please come again and try

I read the reviews on trip advisor and they were so good we thought we would go. What a mistake the food was very average nothing special at all, I would definitely not give it 5 stars it was very average, had better food on the markets. The place was empty people came looked at the menu then left. I would just add don’t go expecting something special as you will be disappointed.

Thanks a lot Joan. Good to have un electric chock. But I read your others 8 rewiews where you gave 5 terrible and 1 average! So at 75% you looks NO LIKES Thai food. It could be A mistake. It's a proof we have to take care to not be proud of what we propose and sorry to the ones they give us un average 5!!!!
