“Best restaurant on the beach in Kamala”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

We have probably eaten at ponds 30+ times and they always deliver great food. Very friendly staff and owner. Can be a bit crowded on high season but there's a reason why. Usually i eat one of the curry dishes they have that I highly recommend.

“Amazing restaurant”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

We stayed in Kamala Beach for 8 nights overall, and tried this place on our 2nd night, after reading previous reviews. It was even better than the reviews! Normally we hate to return to the same places but we decided it must not be possible to find better food in Kamala, and we became regulars! The seats upstairs are great with the view of the bay but we found that to get them, we needed to arrive before 7 or after 9, as this restaurant gets busy. The staff were terrific with us and the curries were some of the best we have tried , certainly the best we had in Thailand. And so cheap! Pineapple rice was brilliant and the fish was fresh and cooked beautifully. On our last day we came in for lunch as we had to have the Indian chicken curry one last time, and Pond gave us a lovely ashtray as a present- so thoughtful and a lovely gesture. Overall, if you go to Kamala, not to try this restaurant would be criminal!

Love Ponds! Tip: If you like the food really spicy order Pet pet ( spicy spicy).:)

“Best on the beach”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

We stayed at the adjoining Maphrao hotel and regularly ate breakfast and dinner here most nights.
The location adjacent to the beach is great, and the food whilst nothing spectacular is consistently good quality and god value. Very friendly place for a no frills meal with friends in a relaxing ambient.
