Noodle soup with seafood is one of the best on the island! Definitely a dish to be tried! We tried noodle soup everyday in different places on the island and this one's great!

I highly recommend the incredibly tasty orange curry. Costs ฿150 with rice, so not the cheapest option on the island, but still affordable for travelers.

Love this place- my favorite on the island. Wan is friendly and a great cook. Great atmosphere, open air near the beach. Go for the Orange curry and the Penang Curry!

Great food - try the orange curry, it's Wan's special recipe that she created herself. Unlike many restaurants on Koh Phangan, this one has not been modified for tourists. It's a real, authentic Thai restaurant - comfy, welcoming, simple and with great food.

Tough to find (even the taxi driver didn't know where it was), but make the effort. The owner and cook Wan is super-lovely and appreciative! This is a restaurant without prevention. Modest, down to earth, away from any form of hustle and/or bustle, but really nice food. Wan is semi-famous for her orange curry... The orange is understated, but unlike... More

Pi Wan and John are the most lovely people you can find on Ko Phangan. I mean, they seriously care about you and do their best to make you happy. But what deeply impressed me is their honesty. I'm talking about bike rental. I spent a year on Ko Phangan and I stopped counting stories of dodgy scooter rentals who... More

We visited this place because of famouse Orange curry. Place itself is tucked away on a small road between beach and jungle roads. The "hut" is very "authentic", with broken dirty furniture and all the mess across. Food itself was good, Orange curry is definitely the best on island but three long black hairs I had in my food did... More
