Based on reviews we had two dinners delivered to our villa whilst at Banyan Tree resort. Food arrived promptly, was steaming hot, well packaged but above all tasted superb. They really listen to you if you order it Thai style and not for tourists....wonderful larb gai salad..ditto pappaya salad which was spiced as we asked....great pad thai...in fact could not fault any dishes.......please check it out if you are in the Laguna area..much better value than the sterile overpriced hotel thai restaurants.....my wife who is vvvvvvvv fussy on Thai food raved about it. Enough said!!!!!!

Accidentally find this restaurant first day of Phuket and we been there three times in five days!!

We had a great great time in Tawai while I'm in Angsana Laguna.

They don't have a great sea view but - The food is fabulous super delicious, drinks are range, restaurant is clean, the manager name Ei is super kind, they do pick up service etc....

I tried Lotus, Golden leaf... like near beach side restaurant but the food itself- Tawai is the winner!!

You must try this if you heading to or you're already in Laguna area.

They have a bar next door - we had a couple of beers in there and hanging Cherngtalay-massage, nail polish, exchange money, shopping and back to Tawai to eat!! Couldn't be better all in one area!!

We came for dinner and loved it so much we decided to book into the cooking class.

Really was brilliant! The owner was great with us and we had a fantastic time!

If you want to do some Thai cooking then this is definitely for you!

I had high expectations for this restaurant due to the previous reviews - this may have been part of the problem
We were picked up from our hotel which was great & were very surprised by the restaurant as it must have been refurbished as the room was clean & airconditioned. We were given some recommendations for dinner & we ordered. The waiter took time to ask if we wanted our appetisers first & then the mains after which we wanted - much to our surprise everything arrived at once & one dish was forgotten. Our daughter loved the ribs, we had the wrapped prawns & pandam chicken which were delicious. The duck with black pepper left us trying to find the duck.
I ordered a glass of wine & for 250THB there was about 1 1/2 cm of wine in the glass only so definitely not worth it
We were able to pay by credit card which we did as the bill was 1800 THB - very expensive for what we had.
Due to the food all coming out at the same time we had finished dinner in an our - felt very rushed
Wont bother to go back again - the Black cat certainly gets our vote

Fantastic meal with delicious Thai food......great.
There is a cooking school here as well which looked great but we felt it was too hot to spend 3 hours "in the kitchen".
Recommended by local friends as well as doing well here so worth a visit.
They will collect and return you to local hotels as well which is a bonus as well.
