We went there for dinner without any expectations and got surprised by a very tasty dinner. Especially the edamame for appetizer were very tasty. The service was also good.

A place with great food that hasn't risen its prices because of the number of people that visit it. They care about their food and do it well.

I was concerned after reading other reviews about the service time. I had no problem this evening within 10minutes my food was at my table. Utterly delicious red duck curry with jasmine rice, the roti is too oily for my liking. One of the best Thai restaurants around.

Kopitiam by Wilai is located in the heart of the Old Town in Phuket City. Strolling the area you could be forgiven for thinking you were in Georgetown, Penang, so similar is the architecture and feel. This is a great value restaurant providing excellent food and friendly service. We had lunch there on an outing from our base in Karon,... More

We LOVED the food here. Yes, the service is slow, but the wait is worth it. It was definitely our favorite restaurant in Old Phuket Town

Loved it..Run by 4th generation families and the owner is a daughter of a "Heroine" of the Burma war. Try the Pad thai and the other authentic dishes. The Nonya food is what you should have here. And they have two wings.. Sit in the original one..Much more classy and historical ambience.Although the kitchen is the same.

I ordered a lot. But after 45 minutes I got nothing. Than I got something I didn't ordered. Than another one I didn't ordered. I decided to keep one and wait for the rest of my original order. Anyway food is SPECTACULAR. Curry is heaven. Tom Kha to. Best food in Phuket. But it is chaos. CHAOS. Embrace it. Love... More
