Amazing food in this joint . We stayed here for 4 nights and all the time we had our dinner from this amazing cafe and food joint . They are warm and good people with amazing good dishes . One day we came late and...the cafe was closed but as we were hungry they packed chicken panang curry for us along with some pad thai noodles . The curry was so amazing that my husband thereafter only ordered for panang curry . However I must admit that they have also done an amazing job with the fish and chips and sandwiches . So I would rate them a full 5 on 5 . Someday when I come back to phuket would like to again have our meals there .More

The most flavorful food I’ve eaten in Southeast Asia. Easily. My favorite happens to be the Massaman curry, but every dish I had was thoroughly enjoyable. I ate here just about every night. Why? Because I knew from months traveling around Thailand that I was...not going to get better food somewhere else. And let me tell you, each night that I came back, I ran into people that I had seen just a night or two before who were returning for the same reason I was. To experience amazing flavorful Thai food prepared & warmly served by Koong, Niida, and the rest of their lovely family.More

We came here after seeing so many good reviews on TripAdvisor and we’re so glad we did. This restaurant didn’t disappoint at all. While there are many restaurants that cook decent Thai food in Karon, this restaurant stands out because the dishes themselves have deeper...flavors than other restaurants. Whether you order some curry or fried rice, each dish is wonderfully prepared. Our favorite was the Stir-fried pork with Thai basil leaves. The sauce mixed in the pork really had a good balance without being too salty. The Thai leaves were actually crispy, not something I’ve seen other places do well. We also went for the Green Curry and substituted crab meat instead of pork/chicken or seafood. We had to ask them to do this off-menu substitution and it was totally with it. It had great curry flavor mixed into the pieces of crab. We also ordered the butter-garlic baked mussels, which were done really well too - fresh and melts in your mouth. The massaman curry was perfect - just the right level of creaminess and flavor to keep you coming back for more. The restaurant serves as a cafe if you need coffee but also offers a selection of locally crafted Thai beer. The whole meal was very reasonably priced. Definitely the best restaurant in Karon area.More

The best Green curry I’ve ever had! The texture was almost like a liquid silk. Returned numerous times over the 6 days we were in Karon and enjoyed many meals including the Pad See Ew and Massaman chicken curry. The Roti bread is the so...amazing ! Amazing service with a smile each and everyday and loved the fact you receive a complimentary cake and tea after your meal. Can’t wait to return next time I’m in Thailand. Won’t be ordering a Thai green curry until I’m back!More
