“Can't fault this restaurant”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

My husband and I have just had a week at Mom Tris. We ate dinner in the restaurant three times. We had lunch twice and room service twice. The food was delicious. The ambience wonderful. It is such a lovely location. The staff are very attentive. Some people say it is too expensive. I say you get what you pay for. Ice cold water is free. They bring a bread basket and two dips that are also free. They bring a little mouthful of food to get your taste buds ready. At the end of the night they give every lady a rose. It is a very romantic restaurant.

We are just about to have our last breakfast in this lovely location. This is our second stay here and I hope it won't be our last. Thank you Mom Tris. This is what good memories are made of.

“Great Food, Location & Service= High Price”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We ate at Mom Tri's for several nights- the food is exceptional, location is breathtaking and service is excellent. Very pricey for the portions you receive. Definitely worth the visit and recommend the seafood platter for 2.

“Great location and service but average food”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

We had pretty high expectations by looking at the reviews in TA and since it was also recommended by our hotel.
Loved the place, the setting, and the greeting when you first step in.
It's divided into a lounge section where you could have your drinks first, and the restaurant section overlooking the beautiful sea.
Everything was great except for the food part; unfortunately when it came to Thai food, there wasn't much flavor in it. We ordered a pretty spicy dish (as set in the menu) but had received tasteless plates overflooded with sauce.

I'd recommend you go there for the view and drinks. As for the food... I wouldn't get my hopes up.

“Great service, but unfortunately the food let it down”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We had some amazing meals in Phuket this June. For our last dinner we decided to have one last special meal at we went to Mon Tri's Kitchen on the Saturday night. The location is fabulous as is the service- you can't fault it at all. The staff were all very personable and helpful.
We shared our entrees- Duck spring rolls and crab cakes- and these were quite nice. Great presentation.
The mains we had- Crab Cannelloni and Duck main. There looked fantastic (large size main meal too) however I the taste was lacking a little. I think that both meals lacked seasoning. Also in the crab cannelloni, the leeks were not softened down and were too hard to eat with the pasta and crab.
We don't mind paying the money they were asking for, and we have had a couple of other amazing meals in Thailand during this trip around the same price that tasted far better.
Perhaps their Thai dishes are better than their international dishes??
