Gif and Ni are excellent Thai ladies with a classic touch of their cooking skills, we enjoyed their food very much and it is a place I will recommend for a true Thai culinary experience, and the prices are very good.

Was one of the finest places for Thai food, but it is closed now, I think due to health problems. If things are turning out fine again, and the cook would reopen in another place always let me know! It has nothing to do, that I know of with Sabai sabai in Patong or in Cape Panwa!

This place was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. The food was great and reasonably priced. You could also order western food if you wanted to.

Loved the meal it was great, but get there early because the resturant fills up quick. The only thing is if you sit up the back of room it gets very hot

Number one in Rawai! Ok so the food is good but so are dozens of places. A restaurant in a row of shop houses with 0 atmosphire and cheap and nasty furniture. The owners are nice people, the concept is good, but come on if you are number one you need to be in a great location with great food... More

We spent a hot 1 hour trying to find this Number One rated restaurant in Rawai and when we finally did we were notified by the new occupiers that it had gone. No one knew where, if anywhere, including the Dive Shop next door. Disappointing.....maybe someone can enlighten us all?

This is a cooking school, but mostly it is a regular restaurant. Most places where you come now in Phuket or other touristic area's, food can be ok, but would never be so good as a Thai gourmet restaurant. What makes the difference, well refinement, detail, and a stronger taste. A stronger taste does not always mean spicy to burn... More
