The food was really good, so much variety and everything is cooked to order. It's inexpensive and I would definitely come back.

We visted red duck last year and all year we couldnt wait to return once we booked our holiday again! We had delicious spring rolls to start followed by the most delicious catches of the day! I had king prawn in a yellow curry and my husband had red snapper in a panang curry. Everything was just delicious including the... More

This place had great service, but the food was just so so. The dessert was not worth it. I think they pull some frozen ice cream out of the freezer and stick it on a plate. You can do much better with the street food ice cream they make in front of you. Not sure what all of the hype... More

Dear customer, thanks for your visit at Red Duck restaurant and your very good rate. We serve Bonito Icecream, home made local product, 100% natural ingredients only. And yes, we keep it in the special Bonito Cabinet at controlled temperature of -20° to prevent bacteria and contamination: what is wrong with that? As we are a healthy restaurant, we served... More

My dad told me to go here, so I did. The restaurant ist very nice with a good design and it's very clean and neat. I really liked the atmosphere. I ordered a spicy Thai seafood salad, chicken with basil and rice and for dessert a banana surprise. And there we are at the point why I only give 3... More

Dear friend, thanks for your visit and your feedback but you seem to be a bit confuse: we have a nice menu with nice photos and very often customers says food looks better than appears on the picture. Anyway, fried basil in Thailand is made two styles: minced meat or peaces. Apparantly you order minced and we served the other... More

We came here because of the good review, so I feel obligated to write something so that others won't fall into the trap. The food here is terrible compared to what you can get anywhere else in Phuket for a much cheaper price. Everything was extremely oily and just not impressive. We could get that kind of quality in the... More

Dear customer, our food is terrible? We accept your very personal opinion but let us say something: we found "terrible" that some customers write two times the same review, just to let us down. There are plenty of better restaurants around you prefer the most? We are glad you find yours. Red Duck More

Went here based on the great reviews and wow did it deliver. Too bad we didn't find our way here until our last night in Phuket, would have definitely returned otherwise. We had a red curry and a massaman curry for mains and a mango sticky rice for dessert. I specified "hot but not Thai hot" for the massaman and... More

It's a bit of a walk from the main drag of Kata Beach, but well worth it when you get there. The restaurant has a simple ambience, is pretty small & it's busy, so a reservation is a good idea. The food was exceptional - home made to your choice of spiciness on the premises, and served by attentive and... More

Went to Red Duck based upon solid reviews. Was surprised to find our favorite waitress that we met at a different restaurant from last year's trip!!! She is sweet heart. The owner came over to say hi and make sure we were OK. It's this type of friendly service along with home cooked food that goes a long way in... More

Went in for lunch to escape the heat. It is an air-conditioned,cosy and clean restaurant. They offer free wifi and different types of drinks and coffee. We ordered massaman curry and the portion was more than enough and really delicious. A bit overpriced though compared to other places for thai food.
