We went on the basis of the TA reviews. What a mistake. The food was awful and only a blessing that they forgot our starter - the vegetable spring rolls, and told us when serving the mains that they couldn't prepare one of our mains (as no holy basil leaf - Easy to buy in thailand). The pineapple Rice was... More

We have been finding that it's the places that don't have he big flashy signs and lights are the best to get real Thai food - and this joint is absolute proof of that! The location of Tonpalm doesn't help itself, but the place is just unreal! We got 2 appetizers, 2 mains, a juice, coke and a water -... More

Just returned from 7 nights in the area and found this restaurant to have outshone all other small restaurants we visited in the area. Don't expect speedy service but you will be rewarded with outstanding food quality, value and presentation along with friendly service. During our multiple trips to this restaurant we realised that many of their customers kept returning... More

On my opinion this is the restaurant with the best Thai Food in the zone. The service is very kindly and they are always smiling! The prices are low with a high quality. The flavours are good and the presentation is beautiful. We ate three times in this place, despiste our resort was far. Recomended!

We have visited this restaurant quite a few times and the staff are always very friendly and welcoming. The food is consistently great and very reasonably priced. We love their mixed Appetizer platter which consists of 3 chicken satay, 2 prawn tempura and 2 spring rolls with sauces for 120 baht only! Their green and red curries are also excellent... More

We had massaman with chicken and green curry with barracuda. While the barracuda was an interesting addition both curry sauces were amazing. One of the very best massamans we've ever had and toasted almonds in the curry was a nice touch. Service was quick and extremely friendly with English spoken well by all servers. Value was awesome to we spent... More
