“Decent food with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Went here on our first night in Bang Tao. The food was good and tasty. Better thai food available in my opinion. Service was fast however one of the staff hadn't got great English. One of the female staff was fantastic and was on hand to assist us.

“Beautiful Food, service with a smile!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

My family and I (including 4 & 6 year old) ate here for dinner. The food was delicious!!! They have a kids menu with all of the usual burgers, hot dog, chicken nuggets etc 99 baht including a free ice cream after their meal!!! My husband and I shared Thai chicken spring rolls, Pad Thai and Thai fried rice all lovely, especially the spring rolls, yum!!!! The staff were all extremely friendly and even let my husband purchase a Singha beer glass the same as the one he was drinking out of!! ( they weren't actually for sale lol!!) overall we recommend going to this lovely restaurant and we will be back again!!

“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Great Menu and Great Food. Exceptional Dining experience. We Have visited quite a few times this year and each time we have never been disappointed . The wood plate steaks are amazing. One bit of advise if planning a night out with friends book your table beforehand , it can get quite busy. We have always pre booked and there has never been a problem .

“Needs work...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

This could be good bit it feels like it's runned by people lacking out of knowledge, confidence and interest. Even the thai food is over touristed and you get more genuine thai food at simple take aways in Scandinavia than here. If they put more engagement for the food in, it could easily be so much better.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

We have visited The Bistro for dinner. The starters (fried asparagus, sprin rolls) were nice, but the main course - the cream fish soup was just fantastic. It was so tender and delicious that I couldn't stop eating it.The salmon was quite nice as well. The dessert - panckake - was beautiful. And all these 5 courses along with beer, wine and tea cost us around 1700 baht. Overall we were sad that we found this place almost at the end of our stay in Phuket. Otherwise we would come back here often.
