Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went on what seemed a busy night at high meant the meals took some time to come out. Friendly staff made sure that everyone was informed of the wait and were apologetic. Food was the best food we have had in a long time!...The ginger garlic fish was amazing, such a tasty and filling dish. Everyone was very happy with their meals and the cocktails were lovely too.More

Great food at very reasonable prices. Portions are very good too. Cooked fresh so don’t expect instant meal delivery-but you won’t be disappointed if you have to wait a little while. Been twice so far and each time food was great. Hospitality exceptional, will be...returning for another night before moving to another resort. You are always made very welcome and it’s genuine. A plus is you are treated to live music. You will not be disappointed if you were to go.More

We have eaten at this restaurant for the last 3 nights. Good food at a reasonable price served with a smile. Live music some evenings (a singer and a guitarist.). They were happy to make some changes to the dishes for my husbands dietary requirements....Would happily recommend this restaurant.More

Wonderful traditional Thai food as well as some 'generic' European dishes. Great food with the usual Thai hospitality and customer service. Would happily go back and recommend to anyone.

We are currently staying at Cape Panwa and have eaten here 3 out of 4 nights. We arrived on Sunday and it was closed. We came here in January 2020 and we thought it was great then and still is. The prices haven’t changed even...after the pandemic. Any dish with prawns in is amazing. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Please support this restaurant it’s great xMore

An amazing dinner tonight. One of the best we’ve had in Thailand. Cheap but seriously delicious! Yellow noodles with chicken, pad Thai with chicken, chicken with cashew nuts and Thai green chicken curry with rice. We had a variety of meals and all the family...enjoyed it immensely. Definitely 100% recommend.More

We were only in Cape Panwa for 5 nights and we ate here twice because we liked it so much!! The main problem is choosing and over-ordering!! Don’t miss the tempura prawns!! But you only need 1 portion between 2 people as a starter. And...that still led to us not finishing our main courses! But, at a cost of 160 baht for 8 large prawns, it was worth it! I can also recommend the massaman chicken and coconut stir fry. Drinks were reasonably priced and the owner stopped by to say hello. People have complained about the live music and it IS a bit more like karaoke but it wasn’t loud and intrusive and the songs were easy listening - though it may have helped that they were definitely our era! I was tempted to sing along!! But that WOULD have put off customers!!More

Came here a few times whilst I was in Phuket after trying other places, this was the best by far. Don't be put off by the bad singer - he has something likeable about him and as with everyone else here, is very friendly. My...partner and I tried various things on the menu (although couldn't resist the spring rolls and Tempura Prawns each time), the garlic beef, the chicken and cashew, the coconut curry, the Tom Yum soup......... all of it absolutely delicious. Price wise is cheap, would have paid double. Portion size is perfect. I believe this is a family run business and all staff are friendly, polite and quick service. This will be the first place I recommend to anyone visiting the area.More

Lovely friendly staff. Menu and food just a bit touristy. Seemed to be what the restaurant thinks Westerners want to eat. Seen it a lot here. Thai curry or chicken nuggets in the same page if a menu. Food was ok. Pad Thai disappointing- stodgy...overcooked, papaya salad was nice and stir fry was unremarkable. Not bad. Just so so. Lovely staff thoughMore

The restaurant is a typical Thai family owned reasonably priced one. The service is very ordinary. The credit card machine didn’t work. The food was average.

if you look directly at the old location next to the Kantary Bay Hotel then you need to turn left walking down towards the naval base and it is on the right in the Pixals complex at the front, and opposite the Blue Wave
