    Amazing food, service and atmosphere
    The food and service is so good. We have been here multiple times already and will come here more. The food is fresh and the serving is fast. The drinks are also very good. Just after all a good atmosphere. Loved the fried rice and mojitos.

    Excellent find, well worth a visit
    Excellent food, we had the massaman curry followed by the bananas in batter. Both were absolutely gorgeous. They were washed down with a very nice G & T. The staff were lovely and they followed a strict no smoking policy which I also approve of whilst eating. Toilet facilities were adequate. Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant - prices very reasonable

    Delicious food and attentive service
    Ace food at a low price. Service is great and very attentive. Visited here a few times during my stay on Phi Phi and was worth it each time. Would highly recommend as this is one of the better restaurants on the island.

    Delicious and good quality and price
    Very delicious Thai food!! The Tom yum soup I got was one of the best meals on my trip! We were afraid of food poison because my husband got sick the night before the the owner reassured us everything is made fresh and they have a clean kitchen. It’s a small place so we could tell that was true and we ate there twice and were fine.

    AMAZINNGGGGGG
    Found this place on a whim and was not dissapointed! It was so good we went back a second time, dumpling special was SO good, spring rolls SO crispy! Tom Yum noodle soup was to die for! It’s a small place and a small kitchen so don’t expect fast food - it’s more lesuirely and comes out as it’s ready! Only thing I would say is that the curry portions can be on the smaller side so just bare that in mind - but they are delicious! Would recommend to anyone on the island - prices are cheaper compared to other places too!

Super food for little money. I came here to taste a massaman and was so suprised! It was super cheap but the quality was amazing and tasted super. The people that run it are very friendly and the presentation of the plate super nice. Definitely a recommendation if your on a bed get or not.

The best thai restaurant we tried while in Phi Phi, they have amazing (and authentic) food and drinks, the atmosphere was also great- it’s small and intimate!

Visited for two evenings. Drinks and food delicious, high quality and very reasonable price. Tried mojito, mai tai, pina colada – all super. Best tom yum ever had. Pad thai, stir fried chicken, dumplings, banana lumpia, pineapple fried rice (beef) – all tasty and worth to try. Place looks new and clean. Has soul and totally different from classical thai food places with cheap plastic chairs (the phenomena I don’t understand). I guess its run by family – all very friendly and lovely and cheerful. Definitely the best place to visit in Phi Phi.

It was such a lovely meal, the owner is so friendly and we really enjoyed it.
Super great value for money, each curry is 100B which is great value for PhiPhi!
