We came here on the recommendation of the local masseuse after we pointed out we wanted real Thai food not catered to western tourist tastes. When we got there around 7:30pm it was full but fortunately the wait was short. This little restaurant along the main thoroughfare of Kamala is not large and has bar counter seating too. While you...

This restaurant was recomended by a local Thai lady, Great service, food and price. There are a few non Thai items on the menu for the kids, well worth a visit.

This is a restaurant in the main street of Kamala which seems to be a bit of meeting place for the local French population. The food we had on three occasions there was very fresh, served rapidly, and very tasty. How "authentically" Thai it is didn't seem to matter so much to us, but it clearly caters to European palates.... More

Went here based on the reviews and ordered a couple of curries - very average - very surprised by the good reviews but we note that they tend to focus on the fish or seafood. Much better restaurants in the area.

The food was good and the price also good. We had garlic bread and then thai food, I don't remember exactly what but it was very good. The garlic bread was full of garlic, I was a little skeptical about it, but it turn out to be suuuper tasty. The service was fast and nice

I have been all over Thailand (I'm Thailand Rob). I'm am not personally the biggest fan of Thai food but yes I do like it. So when I saw the menu at Blue Manao I was comforted by the great selection of western choices I could pick from. I have lived locally here for eight months as of this writing... More

Pleasantly surprised about food which was very nicely prepared and tasted excellent. We ate here at the start of our vacation and all subsequent meals we had in other restaurants didn't quite taste as nice as the food we had here.
