Massaman is right on the main strip for easy access to delightful eats. Massaman chicken, pad thai, and everything else i wonderful. The prices are hard to beat in Ao Nang.

We visit on a Sat night during peak meal time, but were quickly shown to a table. They have a lot of tables so don't think reservation is required unless you want to sit on the veranda. The waitress was kind to check with us the level of spiciness for our Chilli lime steamed fish. Steamed fish was fresh. We... More

Best Papaya Salad I've ever had throughout all Thailand. Obviously, the Chicken Massaman is incredible as well.

My partner had the tamarind shrimp dish, taste was good - but very small portion, must order rice as side with this one. Believe was only 30 baht for side of rice. Overall satisfied... More

The staff in our hotel recommended this restaurant, and given that many Thai people dine here, it is a good choice. Staff are not the friendliest, but the food makes up for it. Ask for the Papaya salad Thai style if you like your food spicy. Spicy is what you will get. Massaman curry was also very good. Good food... More

We found this place on trip advisor because sometimes being vegetarian takes a bit more planning! We went 2 out of the 3 nights we were here! The vegetable Massaman was soooooo good! And only 90baht! We also had the eggs in tamarind, which I had made myself before back in the UK. This was really good too! Atmosphere really... More

We visited Massaman 3 times and we were satisfied every time. The waiters were very friendly, the food very tasty. Fried papaya salad and pad thai were our favourites. Mind it is packed sometimes so you need a reservation.

As you can eat good fresh Thai food so cheaply from the street food stalls around Ao nang it's easy to become a bit tight and see places like massaman as quite expensive, when in reality you wouldn't get a Big Mac meal in the UK for the cost of most dishes on their menu. We'd read the highly favourable... More
