“Great place!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

I had visited this place based on reviews from TA. Very good food and ambience and service. Mr Chet does a day trips on a long tail boat, which are really good! Highly recommended!

“Family-run restaurant serving tasty food!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We visited here today for a quick lunch and were extremely impressed! Food was tasty and service excellent! We had the pad Thai and the chicken holy basil stirfry - both were gorgeous! Tip: if you like spicy ask for it hotter as they cater for western palates. The staff were very friendly and helpful - looked like a family-run establishment. Would recommend for lunch but went past last night and it was packed in the evening so get there early to avoid missing out!

“great food and Mr Chet trips are lovely”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

gorgeous freshly cooked food. Fantastic cocktails as well. We ate here 3 nights, working our way through their menu and it was all gorgeous. Mr Chet boat trips are also fun - sightseeing and snorkelling.

“Equally excellent eats & long tail boat tour!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

We heard about this place from many previous reviewers staying at Outrigger. We ate here for dinner on 2 nights and also did the day boat trip with Mr. Chet a few days ago.

The restaurant is at the end (or beginning) of a long strip of restaurants and bars at the back of the resort. It has a relaxed family friendly ambiance and it features a bar as well. Dinner was great local Thai food and reasonably priced compared to the expensive resort. The back of the menu features the long tail boat tour. Chet came to our table during dinner on our first night to show us pictures from his trip earlier that day.

We booked a trip for 2 days later and met at 8am at the bar to pick out our snorkelling flippers. We walked to the front of the resort to board the boat and we were on our way. We went to Shark point for snorkelling (no sharks unfortunately!) and then to Phi Phi Leh where we went to Maya Bay. We got off and took lots of pictures and he walked us to the other side for a view point & photo opp. We arrived at 9am and it was starting to get busy with about 12 speedboats and 5 other long tail boats there. We left after 30 minutes and went to the other side for more snorkelling and stopped for a quick suntanning break on an empty beach (after 10 minutes other boats joined). We saw the Viking Cave on our way to Phi Phi Leh lagoon where we parked the boat and had lunch (chicken fried rice and fresh pineapple). After this we did a quick stop at Monkey Beach. Nothing overwhelming here - it is very polluted with litter from all the garbage that groups try to feed them (we saw about 5 monkeys). We were back at our hotel by 4pm...it was a fun day that went by too fast!

The very best part of booking with Chet was that he took many pictures during the day on his underwater digital camera (including several of us!) We went back to the restaurant that night to copy all of them to our USB key (about 200 pics). These pictures provided great memories of our day and some of the best snorkelling we've seen in a while.

Thanks Chet to you & your family for providing such a great dining AND touring experience for us!

“Mr Chet thanks for our lovely boat trip”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We were 4 Aussies that went on a private boat trip with Mr Chet - he and the Knock Out Bar made our Phi Phi stay very memorable. Even packed the "happy box" full of beers for us. The Knock Out Bar and Mr Chet are a real bonus to Phi Phi Island - what a great ambassador for the island.
