“Authentic and cheap Thai food haven in the middle of a tourist trap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Great pad thai with shrimp, paneng with chicken and Tom yum with chicken. The service was great - very friendly staff. It's a tiny place with 5 tables. We were lucky to get in during a rainstorm, but happy we did.

“trustworthy tripadvisor reviews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Read many good reviews about this little humble cafe. Was hoping to try the food here. We happened to stumble upon this cafe while looking for our dinner options.
Was delighted and quickly went in. Ordered a few simple Thai food and they were so yummy! Even though some may not appear on the menu, you can ask the friendly owner if it can be customised.
Thumbs up for the value and pleasant owner!

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

We ate here tonight thanks to trip advisor...you never let us down.
We had just ordered when the power went out along the Chaweng strip. Nevertheless, this restaurant cooked and served the food without a problem. Sitting at tables lit by candles, the food was delicious and very authentic. The owner kept apologising but she didn't need to. Our meal was so tasty , large servings and very cheap.if we had another free night we would definitely return.

“Nice little restaurant, friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

The restaurant is only fairly small, but they are busy, they were constantly trying to find seating for customers, so that's a good sign. The thing I most appreciated on the night that we ate there was that it was air conditioned inside....ah luxury in Chaweng. The meals were tasty, although I thought they were a little small. Overall I thought the restaurant was good but I certainly don't think it was the best I have encountered in Chaweng. But they do have Mango with Sticky Rice!

“Best Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Best Thai food we found on the island. Very impressive. Definitely worth a visit and very easy to find provided you look at the map on the restaurant's website. Charming staff too.
