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 went here for dinner on my first night in Pai. There were queues to get in and you ordered your food before you got a table. Quite chaotic. The staff were friendly and the food good enough. I think people are missing a trick...however as across the road is a restaurant called The Set Up which I ate in the following night and then for the next several nights. I believe it’s people following the crowd here at Na’s. I’ve eaten a lot of Thai food in my time and Na’s wasn’t a stand out restaurant to me, it was good but not that good. Across the road however..More

You might wait a while to be seated because of the place's popularity, but well worth the wait. The kitchen is located at the front of the restaurant and open for viewing from the street. You can watch the kitchen staff in action as you...wait to be seated, and the head chef (Na) enjoys interacting with customers as she works. Tasty food.More

Na's Kitchen is not situated prominently in the main walking streets but the crowd keeping pouring in during our visit. We vacated as soon as we finished our meal to give others our table. I tried the pad thai here but requested for "no sugar"....However, the friendly lady boss told me it would better to put a "little bit" of sugar. Both the pad thai and fried big noodle turned out to be nice.More

After reading the reviews i was unsure on how good this place could be. We went early (5.30pm) to make sure we go and seat and didnt have to queue. I can confirm the reviews are correct. We had a panang and a massaman curry,...absolutely delicious. Packed full of flavour. Must try whilst youre in pai.More

Wonderful authentic Thai restaurant in Pai serving great tasting food. The spring rolls delicious and the sweet and sour pineapple with vegetable and steamed brown rice so tasty! Would definitely recommend. My meal came to just under £5 with a drink - amazing value. Super,...friendly owner with a great staff team too.More

Small place with fantastic authentic thai food. Everything we had was great but especially the homemade sausage which was very spicy but also very tasty.

My girlfriend and I were on our last day of the Mae Hong Son loop, and we stopped in Pai for a night. We were looking for a place to eat and stumbled upon this place as it was packed. We had Tom Yum and...stir-fried vegetables along with green curry. Everything was delicious and authentic. The owner speaks English only and faces every service mistake with a big smile and patience. We found the ordering system a bit cumbersome as we’d have needed to fill up a notebook with the acronyms of the dishes taken from the menu. Although a brilliant idea as it avoids miscommunication, it didn’t work properly as the waiter had to come back at least twice and the owner herself, who is only cooking, had to be back before a clear understanding of what we ordered. Eventually, we understood that system was not in use anymore, but the waiter could not tell us in English. Among all the many touristy restaurants of Pai, this is the most authentic and cost-effective. The food was tasty, and the owner was patient. I’d recommend it for local food and authenticity.More

Food was a little disappointing here actually compared to other Thai food I had had. Service and staff were great tho definitely worth a try though if you’re stuck for somewhere to eat.
