“Brilliant - everything was great.”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

This little place is on the corner opposite the Rawai Palm Resort, yes it sits over a canal - but it wasnt smelly on the nights we visited. Really interesting restaurant, lovely staff and food and drinks were exceptional. They have the best fruit shakes in Rawai and everything we ordered was so tasty, the desserts are also delicious - hasband loved the banana pancake but if ordering ask for ice cream. I asked for spicy curry and got a look of surpise but found it easy to eat - definitely hot but not over the top. A great place and we went back often.

“This is also called The Driftwood”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

Lovely meal but we were a little confused by the restaurant name. Service good and with a smile. The best chicken satay we have had in Thailand :o)
Very eclectic surroundings and interesting decorations kept us interested and amused. Thanks!

“Fantastic Find!!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Went to this funky little restaurant, not once, but twice, while staying in Rawai. You could not find nicer, more attentive, ( yet still relaxed ) people anywhere! The food is fabulous, and super fresh, with authentic Thai flavours! Thankfully, not dumbed down for tourists!! Very well priced with a good selection of drinks as well, and a really cool, laid back vibe. Extremely clean. Would highly recommend visiting here if you are in Phuket! And please say Hi to Kenny and the girls for us!!

“Good place - very much worth a visit”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We had dinner here. Very cool place as it back onto a slough and is very quiet. A word of warning - the slough sometimes smells a bit high, so go on a day when it does not. Good food. The shark tasted a bit strong - wasn't sure if it was old or that is how shark tastes like. Everything else was excellent. We recommend.....

“Good food/Interesting place”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

We are in Phuket for a few weeks. Have visited The Recycle a couple of times. Great food, staff very friendly and speak good English all at a very reasonable price. The restaurant has been constructed from various recycled materials which provides an interesting backdrop to the meal. Would recommend a visit we will return before we go home.
