“authentic Thai food say's Ruby 2013”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

It's the only place on the island for consistently authentic Thai and quality food. Doll is special in that she catered for individual tastes and took requests for meals not on the menu. Her cooking is absolutely superb and I decided there was no where better to eat and passed the word on to all my holiday friends. The atmosphere is one of casual comfort and ambiance, a place you can hang out in, relax and meet up with friends without feeling rushed, even when busy. It's located in the village as opposed to the main front area and offers a delicious cullenary experience in a
clean and welcoming environment and I would highly recommend all Gili T travellers to go and eat there as it's the place to be.

“Great Thai Food”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Doll knows how to cook great Thai food and will adapt the heat to your taste. My favorite was the green curry with spaghetti and the red curry is good too. The place is relaxing with a neat atmosphere and they are open long hours. We ate here often as the prices are low and the food great. The place was also really clean. I didn't get to try the Bob's Special so will have to go back again next trip.

“Liked the Thai food”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Came here because of the high ranking on Tripadvisor.
Place is cosy and clean, delicious Thai food, the bruchetta was just ok.
Reason why we went only once, was because of the location, in just a small street. We preferred to be more on the beach. But overal a nice place for lunch.

“Ok but there are better places on Gili T”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I've ate here twice - Tempe burger was good but the Gado Gado was pretty awful - over cooked vegetables and really bland peanut sauce. For service - the staff aren't very attentive and seem to try their hardest to avoid customers. Overall it was ok.

“Good thai food”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

we ordered thai food from Kafe Kecil almost 5 out of 10 nights we were in Gili. Its good thai food. The curries especially the red curry is good, but the sate and the starters are not that great. Generally good food though.
