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.

Cannot go wrong here. My Thai lady friend also confirms that it was the best meal meal we had in Pai (we were in Pai 3 days). Everything was freshly made including the fruit smoothies. Highly recommended for authentic Thai food.

Four of us came here because it had awards and great reviews and wow did they disappoint. We have lived in Thailand for four years and have had all kinds of Thai food. This was not great. The massaman seemed pretty thick as if it...was made of mushy potatoes. The flavouring was pretty good though. We read that the papaya salad was good, but we got and it was sooooo bland. No flavour and had to add salt. We got chicken wings also, these were fine. Very Thai, had to break apart the wing from the drumstick ourselves. Our friends got the pad Thai who’s was a bit mushy and soft with little flavour. Another friend got mama noodles with vegetable. He said it was Very garlicky, but he liked it. Along with this, the fried shrimp was great after we took the heads off them. Very unimpressed. At least it was cheap.More

Boyfriend ordered chicken masaman curry and it was lovely. I ordered chicken in gravy with noodles and was served a bland broth covered in black pepper 😔 noodles were thick and slimy. I didn’t eat it so ordered chicken fried rice which was more edible.

We visited this place after passing by, having a look in and checking TA. Between the two of us we ordered two starters and two mains plus two soft drinks. Spring rolls were excellent as was the papaya salad. The mains, yellow chicken curry with...rice and the chicken noodle stir fry dish were both very tasty and large in size. Very impressed with this place and friendly service also.More

Some of the best food we had in Thailand! We normally like to try new places to eat every night when away, however, as we liked it so much we returned the next day and it was even better! Traditional Thai food- highly recommend when...staying in PaiMore

We used to come here three years ago and were really looking forward to returning. However, the food was really disappointing, it was very sweet and lacking much flavour. The beef was dry and the food was not spicy at all despite us asking for...spicy food. Feels like it is just catering for tourists who want sweetened westernised Thai food.More

No idea why this place has such high ratings. Food is total average and rather adjusted to Western taste than authentic Thai.
