“Decent ”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

Came by this restaurant by chance. I was seated outside at the last available table which turned out to be a blessing and a curse.

I ordered the red curry with shrimp but was served after what seemed to be a long wait red curry with chicken. Maybe it's a language barrier thingy. No sweat.

The meal arrived piping hot and it was quite good. I prefer a thicker creamier curry. This one was kinda watery. Though it did have some kick to it.

When the server came back a second time I thought he asked if I would like another beer, but he never came back. Another language barrier thingy.

All told decent Thai food restaurant but probably won't be a retuning customer.

“Pum deserves No 1 on Trip Advisor”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

Having spent 10 days on the Phi Phi islands I have visited different Thai restaurants. Pums Thai cookery is by far the best. It is spotlessly clean, happy staff members and the best food I've eaten so far on holiday which is reasonably priced. Try and you will not be disappointed x

“good introduction to thai cuisine ! must do !”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

you are welcomed in a squeaky clean environment by very professional and friendly staff; you are taken through various steps of history, culture and recipes and cherry on the cake all tedious peeling and preparations are done for you so you just concentrate on the real important stuff. just make sure you get there with an empty stomach as you end up eating all f your preparations. I have repeated all the recipes back home since and they are great

“Lovely food!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

One of the first well designed restaurants that also serve good authentic Thai food, food which also looks nice on the plate. And for Phi Phi the pricing is good enough. This conbined with very friendly staff makes it a good experience!

We already did a cooking course in Chiang Mai, else we might have tried this one!
