“Great Tapas, Diverse menu, awesome desserts!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

My wife and I eat at Nics frequently. In fact, we have introduced at least 10 other couples to Nics. The problem with Nics menu, is that there are so many items to choose from, and they are all good. Seriously, the food quality is refreshing, and the presentation of their plates is always well done. The wait staff are pleasant and engaging and speak English well.

Their Tapas menu is extensive; in fact, we had been there at least 5 times before we made it past the Tapas list to the main entrees. And the main entrees are wonderful too.

We rarely have enough room for dessert, since we always seem to select one more tapas than we can finish. But when we do have dessert we are never disappointed. The owner makes her own desserts and they never last longer than the day they were made. Excellent!

“Great casual place!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Nic's is one of our most favorite places in town! It is perfect for a relaxed and casual lunch or dinner with family and friends! The menu is very diverse and appetizing, and there is a really nice kids menu too. the food is delicious and always fresh with a lovely home made touch to it! The playground is one of the kind!!! Kids just love going there!! but even if you are on your own, it is great to pop over to have a bite to eat or for cup of coffee and a slice of cake (which are divine by the way) while you are checking your emails. They have free WiFi and play cool chill out background music. There is also a separate air conditioned area which is lovely on a hot day!! Stuff is always friendly and make you feel welcomed. It is reasonably priced and definitely offers a very good value for money.

“Nic's for Kids!!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

That's a excellent family restaurant. I know Nic's Restaurant already since they started in Koh Phangan.
Quality of service and food is just perfect! The price of food for this fresh and good quality is more then okay.
A fantastic playground for kids.

We like this place.

“Over-priced, Poor Service”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Nics has been around for a few years and recently revised all of their pricing. Their dishes are now significantly smaller than in the past and 20-30% more expensive. Quality of the food has significantly deteriorated.

Nics appears to have had a significant turn over of their wait staff and service has gone downhill.

We won't be wasting our money at this "kid friendly" resturant in future.

Mr. Christopher,
sad to hear, that you feel this way about our restaurant.
I think, before writing such a bad review you should have better done some research
about us.
1. we have not been open for years, it has been 1 year and 8 months
2. our significant turn over of wait staff has been „1“ which we can prove with pictures
3. after having the same prices in our menu for over 1 and a half years, the prices for
shopping have of course changed dramatical (exp. 1 kg of shrimps when we started
180 Baht now 349 Baht) and our portions are still the same. Our “significant” price increase is 10-15% and not like you wrote 20-30%. I don't know who is doing the shopping in your house, but obviously not you.
After reading the other reviews you have given Restaurants and Hotels at Trip-advisor I was asking myself, what else is this person doing. You sound like someone who is very difficult to please but still you should be honest and stay with the truth and not damaging other people business with your reviews. We have been listed at Trip-advisor the past 8 years and we even wrote a notification to them about your kind of a reputation- or business-damaging comment.
Maybe you should find some balance in your Life and start seeing the positive things in live instead of the negative.
I wish you a happier life.
Best regards

“Excellent family restaurant”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We loved nic's in phangan because the food and atmosphere was great. Nic's in hang dong was perfect for us. The food was fantastic and we loved the playground. They have created the ultimate family restaurant. I wish there was a nic's where we live!!
