Quite a variety of authentic Thai & western cuisine which was very satisfying. We infact had a few meals here during our stay in Patong. Service was good, friendly staff, pricing very reasonable. Would definitely recommend this place!👍

A big Restaurant that sometimes seems under patronised. Eaten there several times and not disappointed.

We enjoyed the meal as we had stumbled upon this place..from the hotel. Staff were pleasant, food options a plenty.. and tastefully prepared/served. Pricing sums it all up as it was very affordable. Would recommend this experience without missing a beat... thoroughly satisfied.: )

Visited through reviews on trip advisor and would recommend anyone going. Good food and quick service. Staff attentive and don't push anything on you that you don't want. Great value for money.

Just dropped in for some food when walking about at patong beach Phuket, owned and run by a Swedish man and his family and was really tastey and staff very helpful, not over priced

We came here twice during our stay in Patong and liked it very much. The prices are fair for a place that is relatively close to the beach, and the food is of great quality and taste. We particularly liked the fish and ginger stirfry and the duck coconut curry.

Came here by accident. Was heading to euro Thai which was across the road. Had breakfast there and it was good. People at the front welcomed us in and said they have been open for a few years and are striving to be excellent and get amazing reviews on trip advisor. We have been here 4-5 times. Tried a lot...
