“Great Veggie food too...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Just wanted to say thank you for a lovely meal. Finding Thai food without eggs, fish and meat can be tricky, but this restaurant was perfect in every way. Try the Green curry and pad thai. The vegetable fried rice was a total hit with the kids. The penang red curry definitely lived up to its name, being hot spicy and fragrant. The service was also great and every effort was made to accommodate our group of 6 (slightly fussy) eaters. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

“Great Dining and Cooking at Tawai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

This was our favourite restaurant for Thai food in Phuket. We tried a range of dishes on the menu during our two visits and enjoyed each one. We returned for the Cooking Class which complimented the dining experience. Thanks to Noi for sharing her knowledge and passion for Thai cooking.

“Great authentic Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We went to Tawai Thai after Lotus messed up our booking and because some of our family members just took cooking lessons there. The food was great and after a not so great dinner at Baan Rim Pa in Patong the night before. The place was decent and spacious and the service was excellent. They sent a SUV to pick up the 6 of us and brought us to their restaurant and took us back after. Noy, one of the sisters who teach and cook there came out to talk to us and all the staff were so extremely nice. Thai food is so accessible in Hong Kong where we really are spoiled for choices and styles. Tawai was a total surprise in how nice EVERYTHING tasted even comparing it with the high standards of food we get here in HK. Definitely worth a try especially if you are staying in the Laguna area in Phuket

Really authentic and excellent Thai food and consistent quality.

Service very good .
