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.

Very good! Spicy food is actually spicy here! Feels like it is family-run and the english level is way better than rest of Thailand!

Lovely spot for dinner! We stayed in Kata beach for 5 nights and ate at Eightfold twice. Really lovely food and atmosphere, quiet and relaxing. I am also coeliac and have struggled with finding gluten free options but it was great here. Plenty of options...and great food and great prices.More

If you want to try Thai food that is a step up from the usual fare (as good as that is), Eightfold is a must. Our dishes were a cut above the offerings at other Thai restaurants in the area, with the chilli basil being...especially good.More

Following a recommendation that this was a coeliac friendly restaurant we had to give it a go. With a leafy facade it feels fresh just walking in. I had Vegetable Panang which was amazing. My wife had vegetable pad thai and put son a chicken...burger and chips (of course!) Service was friendly, it seemed to be family run and for us to all eat and have soft drinks it cost about £12, fantastic!More

Eaten here 3 times in the last 3 weeks, everything cooked so well, the service is always good, the staff are very attentive, if you have room for dessert, recommend the honey toast with ice cream.

I absolutely LOVED Eightfold Restaurant!! I was looking for healthy, fresh, authentic Thai food with no MSG. Not always easy to find! I lucked into a table before the dinner rush (before 6pm I guess?). The staff were all very friendly & polite especially the...manager/owner(?) who was seating people. (His English was excellent too which was a treat.) I ordered Papaya Salad & Tom Kha vegetarian soup (coconut broth). I asked for it SPICY & it was AMAZING! I’m a very white, gray haired 53yr old Canadian woman & I can never convince people I actually want my food so spicy my eyeballs sweat! This was fresh cooked & exactly what I wanted! (Those of u who don’t like spice, don’t worry, they will make your food how u want it.) As I was eating my dinner, many people came to get a table here & the owner-manager was very gracious & helpful (& patient with all the tourists) as he gave them a number & approximate time to come back. Also note the bathroom was very clean & pretty. And my chocolate gelato was delicious & cooling! All around just a super experience for 400baht - awesome!! I think I’ll go back again before I leave Kata Beach❤️More

My fiance and I came here two nights on the run and this is absolutely the best Thai food we have ever ate!!! We had the tempura vegetables, crispy pork special, chicken red curry & prawn green curry - it was all incredible. We are...especially gutted to be leaving Phuket because we’ve loved this food so much haha! It’s also a lovely little restaurant on a cute street, & those who work in the restaurant are all very kind and welcoming. ❤️More

We are here for lunch and being gluten free I am usually quite limited with choices, but the waitress confirmed they can make most of their Thai dishes gluten free! She even showed me the bottle of sauce with gluten free labelled! This was so...reassuring as it has been difficult eating out in Asia! I had the cashew nut and my partner had the green curry! Food was lovely and service great!More

We went there several times. Very tasty, homemade food, lots of options. Prawns with garlic and pepper excellent! Small restaurant, friendly service. Definitely coming back next time in Phuket! Note that you can make a reservation for next time (there is a line every evening,...waiting time about half an hour!).More

This is the best restaurant in Kata. We have been coming here since about 2004 maybe. We got to know the family that own the restaurant. We love their delicious food and efficiency. This time we where here we booked a table every night because...it was a queue every night and we have tried most of the restaurant in Kata and this is best one. Very good Irish Coffé as well. Thank you to Mr Tanawat with family. We will be back Anders and GunillaMore
