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.

I had the pleasure to come across this place. You can feel the ingredients are all natural, and the food is 100% homemade. I also had the pleasure to meet the owner, who has been living in Phuket for the past 21 years, becoming one...of the first Israelites on the island and therefore, founding his restaurant along with his lovely Thai wife (both in the picture). You guys are The Family we all need when we are far from home! PS. Please order the Malooh Assley (Blauaj or Yaman pancake). It's a really "must-have"! Regards! PatriciaMore

I discovered this restaurant post-COVD and I'm so happy I did! I don't usually leave my small area of the island, but now I drive all the way here 4x a week to eat lunch. The food is AMAZING. You can tell they put care...into serving quality foods. My favorite dish is the Hummus w/ Chicken Liver. Also, the mixed fruit shakes are the best on the island and the chicken shawarma is delicious! I can't recommend this place enough!More

Been coming here for about 13 years years and the quality is always fresh, tasty and delicious. Prices are very reasonable. Best falafel and dips I have had in Thailand, and better than I can get in Australia. Love the Chalong plate and chicken schnitzel...in pita. I normally eat Thai food but the middle Eastern food is great for a change. If you want Thai food it is superb too. Very extensive menu. Came to Family for a meal and was lucky enough to get invited to share their 20th anniversary. Lovely owners, same staff for many years so food quality very consistent. You won't be disappointed, well I have never been.More

We have great pleasure in taking family and friends to The Family Restaurant as it is never a disappointment and the food is delicious. The menu is vast - Mediterranean, Italian, Oriental, German and Thai food. We can highly recommend the shawarmas, schnitzel, chilli con...carne and fish and chips, to name but a few, and their Thai food is exceptional especially khai kluk kapi (fried rice with shrimp paste). Prices are reasonable and servings are generous. The owner and his staff are very friendly and attentive. It has a great atmosphere and you must spend a little time reading the messages on all the walls and a walk down the “passage of fame” to the washrooms is essential - take your camera! I have absolutely no hesitation or reservation in recommending a visit!More

Have been driving past this restaurant for years; today we stopped by for a Sunday lunch. Previous reviews are all accurate; a lovely, homely restaurant still run by the original owners, service was well-informed and discrete. The food is perfectly cooked and presented. Lamb/beef kebabs...were great; thick skewers of meat, onion, fresh herbs and pine nuts. The mezze platters are lovely as is the hot pitta bread. Everything including beers was less than 800 BHT! We will be bringing our grown up kids here next weekend!More

What a wonderful change of pace from traditional local fare. It was by far the best non-Thai meal I have had in Thailand! The warm, soft pita bread is obviously baked fresh daily, it just melted in my mouth. I ordered the mousaka (eggplant stuffed...with beef) and spare ribs. Both were equally delicious and contained unmatched rich and balanced flavor. I have been to several premier food destinations over the years including New York and San Francisco. I have never had such an authentic home cooked Mediterranean meal! It is a must if you are going to be visiting Phuket! It is not an accident they have been serving up delicious plates for over 20 years. Enjoy 😋More
