Cons: surly and disinterested service, terrible representations of wonderful Thai staples like Panang curry, woeful attempt at Tempura Prawns and vegetables (the prawns were crumbed, the vegetables were covered in thick batter more suited for cheap fish), the representation of spaghetti bolognese required explaining to my 7 year old son that sometimes it does have large hunks of yellow, green...

We looked forward to being back in Kata and the first place we wanted to revisit was Mama's! Set in the southern corner of the beach next to the Ska bar this must be the best value for money eatery thats right on the beach. The beer is cold and food very good at a great price. We had the... More

They have no quality and the place was dirty, specially the tables & surroundings. And even a simple fried rice or pancakes were bad. It's a pity because you're beachfront.

My husband and I ate here twice during our 5 day stay in Phuket. It was recommended to us by a family who had been to Phuket years ago, and said that Mama Kata has been here for a long time. We enjoyed both of our meals (and drinks). Craving this food again now that I'm back home!

At the southern end of Kata beach there are 3 eateries next to each other. We dined at all of them and they all offer good and very cheap local Thai meals. The 3 eateries are Kata BBQ, Kata Seafood and Ska-bar, and Mama Kata (seafood) - in the middle - which, in our view, was the better of the... More

Lunch time we had different Thai salads and fried noodles. Very tasty and fresh. Dinner we had grilled sea bass with garlic& lemongrass & chili. So fresh... More

Avoid. This is poor quality food. Curry was undone, fries were oily and grose, squid not so tasty. But above all it is disgrace to serve this lousy Pad Thai. No. Go next door.

My mother and I were in Phuket for 3 days and we ate breakfast at this restaurant every single day. A banana pancake and banana fritters. They were delicious! We also had a juice and on 2 occasions a coconut as well. They provide a spoon to eat the coconut meat. Both coconuts had a lot of coconut water and... More
