We had calamari and spring rolls to start and then both had Paneng Curry (hot, which was quite spicy for me but didn't ruin it at all. Staff offered coconut milk if I needed it to reduce heat). The curry was... More

We went as a family of 5 with a child of 4 and the food and service were fantastic. Red duck salad was amazing served in a pineapple! Paneng curry was authentic although I had very mild. Drinks and meals all reasonable prices and Marccelo looked after us very well... thank you,

Visited Red Duck based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was a little hidden away but worth finding. As advised when we arrived the food is prepared from only fresh ingredients, not frozen seafood, and MSG is not used in their cooking. We had a green mango seafood salad to share for starters, then the daily specials, tiger prawns in pepper... More

We ate at many recommended restaurants in Kata and Red Duck is our Number 1. The menu extensive with a nice wine list. On arrival the manager Marcello introduced himself and explained the menu. They source fresh fish and seafood from the markets each day and use wild seafood and not farmed. You could feel the freshness shine through as... More
