A family run restaurant where they handmake the most delicious spring rolls! The Massamum Curry, excellent and could not eat enough of the beautiful fresh Morning Glory Vegetable! We ate here three times during our seven night stay and look forward to eating there again on our next trip!

The food was delicious and everything was really cheap. Very friendly staff too. We don't normally eat at the same place twice, but we are definitely going back before we leave to try more of the menu.

We went to Riverside as it was recommended to us from our hotel, Chava Resort. It is a family owned and run, local Thai restaurant, that although is modest in its fit-out, is THE most amazing food you'll find in Phuket! Make sure you try the greens, called "Morning Glory" they are fabulous - as is all the food! Highly... More

We stayed in an airbnb apartment close to Riverside and it was recommended by the host. The food is fantastic, cheap and delicious. We love spicy so recommend the curries and papaya salad. The tom yum goong is out of this world! Always quick and friendly service, and they always gave our 3yo daughter a "present" when we leave (box... More

We went after reading so many good reviews and they are totally spot on! Staff are friendly, there are lots of toys and ride on cars for toddlers and babies to play with, which was a nice touch. Prices are reasonable, 90 bht for large change. We had a yummy red chicken curry, young kale in oyster sauce and prawns... More

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived (always a good sign) but we were seated promptly. It's a very casual place run by a local family. Menu is mostly Thai with a few western dishes (pasta mostly). We had Thai dishes and the food was excellent, very fresh and full of flavour. I would definitely recommend a visit.

We visited as a family this week and were very impressed with the welcome, the food and, especially, the service. The food was top quality, tasty and authentic. The service was exceptional - nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended!

Rich and flavourful dishes. Nice and casual, worth the ride or the walk to get there. Food is typical Thai and sets high expectations. We got there two times and regretted not to visit more. Staff is friendly and with good advice.

This is a classic small Thai family restaurant with authentic cuisine. Everything is cooked to order so don't be in a hurry. The service is slow but the food is worth the wait. We ordered some of the classic Stir Fried Basil with Chicken, Papaya Salad, Stir Fried Rice with Squid and some Tom Yum Gong. Price is very reasonable.

Probably the best local food we had during our recent holiday. Huge menu, with everything you would expect or want. Were able to accommodate starters and mains arriving when they should, which is rare. All very much enjoyed the dishes we had. When the heavens opened during dinner, they even took us the short distance back to our hotel. That's... More
