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.

Excellent food and excellent service. K Champange was amazing. The chicken was fabulous, the curry was authentic and the service was second to none.

This is a great place for kids. Service is good and you can see the sunset at the same time. We stayed at Kamala beach and came there twice for dinner! We also recommend the fresh fruit juices!

The atmosphere is welcoming and fun given we are a family of 7 with 2 young children. Service was prompt and friendly. Food is tasty and caters to all palettes. Portion sizes are generous without compromising on flavour.

My wife and I went back to the no1 Restaurant in Kamala again. We go back to this awesome Restaurant every time we travel back to Phuket. The food is so fresh and tasty. We had lobster and chicken again which was cooked to perfection.The...atmosphere is so nice and eating on the beach with sand under your feet is truly amazing . Staff are very very friendly and polite. Please visit this truly amazing Restaurant when you travel to Phuket, you won't be disappointed.More

Great place. Amazing sunset view. Service is polite and there is no hundred questions „do you like your food”. All curry dishes are simply delicious. Be mindful that papaya salad has a bit fishy taste so not everyone may like it. Pineapple and rice is...best we had in entire Thailand!More

I've been attending Smile since 2009. Over the years it has changed well for the better, until today that I do not hesitate to define the best in Kamala. Wonderful location on the beach, varied menu with use of fresh and quality products, excellent service,...friendly atmosphere, beautiful and original furnishings. Great style!More

I walked to the beach spot where they have seating for drinks, as soon i as i walked in because i am a chinese i was asked to spend a minimum of 1000 baht per person along with a few of my other friends, i...negotiated down to 600 per person, the waitress asked the boss if it was okay, they said yes, as soon as we walked towards the seating, she said no we negotiated 800 not 600, i was like okay fine… we were asked to pay the amount first per person as a “deposit”. okay we did. The fact that everyone walked in without spending a minimum per seat and paid later is what was disturbing, i was sitting there drinking and spectating, westerns paid after, not only we had minimum spending we had to pay full as soon as we sat down. The boss is just rude, kept saying da lao ban da lao ban, bro i am here to have a fun time and not take up with your unfairness treatment.More

Food great, 90% of the staff great but management is horrible and rude. Nico the manager has treated us like we are some rude Russians (even though we are not Russians) gave us some inappropriate comments about the kids and did not understand what we...were enquiring about so instead of saying “I do not understand” he jumped into offensive mode and was very rude to me. I am super nice person and love people but from the first meeting with him I had very bad feeling. We have visited the place multiple times, staff were lovely to us but he was only one giving us a side eye. The tip of the iceberg was when I had to pay 350 BAHT when I accidentally broke one glass whilst I was leaving and on the bill was written “other drink”. The same glass I can buy in corner shop for 50 BAHT. Not sure what we have done to him but I wish he get his personal problem sorted and find happiness. 🙏🏻More

Amazing food, specially the fresh fish. Waiters very friendly. Price is a bit higher than the area restaurants however the place worth the slightly higher cost.

We have been stunned by the atmosphere, the view, the customer service and what the most important- the food! 2 years ago my opinion about the Thai cuisine was 6/10. We have tri many places around but this one served us the best food we...have ever eaten in Thailand! If you are looking for a place where you can eat delicious food, big portions and have incredibly satisfying dinner- that’s the one. Don’t waste your time just go there you won’t regret it!!!!More
