We went almost all days to this restaurant. They have a beautiful view over the sea and the food is great. They can make everything you wish for (I am vegetarian and all dishes could be made without meat). But most of all, they are so nice to our kids (4 and 5 years old). They went to the sea with our kids, they were drawing and play doughing, finding fished and help to cook…. That made our visits so special and relaxed!!! So this combination made this place amazing!!!
We will come back!!

We really couldn't fault this place, which has absolutely stunning views over the bay.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Pad thai was thoroughly enjoyed by my wife and son whilst my daughter destroyed a superb looking homemade pizza. I enjoyed the beef massaman curry which was simply devine. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

We stopped by this restaurant to view the menu for another day and a lovely girl mentioned that they had some fresh lobsters and when she brought them out it was to hard to pass up they literally looked like they had just been caught, she explained that it came with a choice of for sauces and a chioice of one side orde fries, salad, vegetables but chose the potato gratin & lime and butter sauce.

Whilst waiting I observed the other guests food being served presentation was amazing so this is a good sign, our perfectly cook lobsters and the potato gratin is by far the best I have ever had the lime butter sauce complimented the dish vegetables served where crunchy.

Chef Suporn came out to say hi and my hunch was right as I had just said to my mum that the chef must have worked in 5 star restaurants as the food was impressive and I asked a staff member which he confirmed.

A must visit whilst in the area and worth the distance if you are staying elsewhere in Phuket I intend to go back a few more times before my trip ends.

Right on the edge of Kamala creek and the southern end of the beach is this treasure. We visited this restaurant twice and chose it to celebrate my husband's birthday.
To say this chef is talented, is an understatement. Passionate about his food and the freshness of his produce! Staff are well trained and the chef has plans for expansion.
Lets talk about the food. Chef provided fresh bread and accompaniments as as appetizer. Nice thought! Entree - fish mousse in a young coconut. Surpassed my expectations - warm and luscious, softened coconut....... dream on! Can also recommend the pommello salad which was very refreshing. The chef was happy to share his recipe with us. Main courses were prawns, fish, squid and chicken. All were excellent quality and beautifully presented. Can also recommend the cooling watermelon juice. Hubby says the beer was good, too.
The restaurant has a resident musician providing background music and entertainment to add to the experience. One night we were treated to an extra item from a guest from Shenzhen. She sang a love song, in Mandarin, I think. She was also very talented.
I wish this restaurant was close to my home so I could be a regular customer.
Finally, one of the kind waiters had rescued a very young kitten whose mother had died and was feeding it milk from a dropper, outside the restaurant. How kind he was to this poor little animal. I am sure this kitten will be eating well.
