Description: We're at the end of Soi Casa del Sol (a large hotel) in Kata Beach, across from Club Med, behind Buffalo Steakhouse, about 50 meters from the main road. A traditional Thai restaurant located in the heart of Kata Beach. Surprisingly, it's difficult to find 'real' Thai food in Kata any longer, much of it is over priced and watered down. The concept of Sugar and Spice is good Thai food, the way we Thai people eat it, sold at a price that is affordable. We serve all your favorites, and special orders are welcome. We also have some Western food for those feeling a little homesick and wanting comfort food after a few days of eating Thai.

We were here only once and based on our experience, the staff is attentive, the food tastes excellent, prices are great, their menu packed with choices and the location is good. They have large sized portions for 150-200b + 20b for rice and extra 40b for seafood meat choice. We went with "single dish" portions which were fine for lunch on a humid day and cost only 89b.

Our appetizer was chicken satay for 120b and it was really tasty: I've had it before more tender but the taste was just superb, as were the dip and garnish served with it. I suggest you order appetizers with your drinks, so you don't receive them with your meal, unless that's what you want. Small Changs were 70b each and for the main meal we had light yellow curry chicken and stir fry ginger beef. At the end of the meal they brought us four small slices of watermelon.

The easiest way to find the restaurant is to look for Balalaika, it's a few doors after it. When we walked in, they gave us Russian menus. When we asked for English ones they said "I thought you were Russian, I'm sorry". Not a horrible mistake as now in low season it seems that 90% of guests are Russians. Oh, well, I bet we all look alike to them :)

We'd might return and try some other dishes but with so many places to choose from, we'll probably just keep exploring.

Thank you for your very detailed and kind review and for also posting photos. Yours is the first review where someone posted photos. So thanks again!

We also have a new restaurant with the same menu on Soi Malisa, just one lane south of the location you had dinner and lunch. There is more space there and I'm sure we can find something new for you to eat. :-)

Thanks again and best wishes,

Ohn

Food was OK, personally I felt a little too "foreign" or commercial, and not enough "local" flavour about the food and menu. We ate twice, once in each of the 2 restaurants. We preferred The Kitchen and Red Chair and Eightfold....but it was fine.

Hi and thanks for your nice review. Next time if you want it to be a little more local, just ask for my suggestions. We have a lot of southern Thai dishes that you may not be aware of that are really good. We had friends in town last night and we showed them a bunch of things that they were not aware of even though they have been coming to Thailand for 20 years.

But thanks for the visit and thanks for pointing out that we now have two restaurants, one on Soi Casa del Sol and one on Soi Malisa. Still trying to get the new one listed.

Best wishes,

Ohn

Visited based on TA reviews. Not disappointed. Sizzling seafood plate was a hit and the Penang Curry had plenty of 'bite' but not as creamy as I like. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

Thank you for your very kind review. Happy you enjoyed our sizzling seafood plate and maybe one of our other curries will meet your spec a little better. We enjoy our yellow curry as we serve it with onions, pineapples and cherry tomatoes so it's a bit different than you find elsewhere.

Don't forget to try our new restaurant, Sugar and Spice Too at Soi Malisa, just south of our old restaurant.

See you again.

Best wishes,

Ohn

This place was not too bad. Price was alright, and food was pretty good. It didn't stick out as the greatest meal we had in Thailand, but it also didn't disappoint.
