We stumbled upon this little place while walking to our hotel. Best decision ever. We ate the Crab in yellow powder, stir fried morning glory, seafood and chicken fried rice and the fish in sweet chilli. They were all bursting with flavour. We’re going back again today for the crab and some other tasty surprises.

As title says, it is cheap good food. Can’t fault this place huge portions as well. Only thing we got confused by was there were 4 of us and we all ordered different meals but they came out one at a time, with a bit of a wait between them. But this was fine as we just tucked into each other’s as they came out.

Ordered papaya salad, prawns in red curry paste, pork with basil, coconut soup with chicken. Highlight of the meal was the coconut soup, sour, flavorful, delicious. Lowlight of the meal was the papaya salad...Very little flavor beyond sweet, and totally devoid of heat, although we asked for spicy.

The other dishes were fine, nothing standout but nothing bad.

Tasted like things has been toned down a bit for tourist tastes which was disappointing given the good reviews and high expectations. Maybe ordered wrong things...?

It's more like 3.5 stars overall.

Fruit shakes were excellent, so that pushed it up to 4 stars, but it's a weak 4.

Eaten here 2 nights in a row - about to head there for dinner tonight too.
Lovely friendly service with lots of smiles, family run place so very nice atmosphere. Food very well priced and enormous portions - good for our big english bellies!
I'm vegan and BF is veggie, they will change their dishes accordingly for dietaries, no questions asked.
Tofu & cashew is amazing! as is pad thai

Good, authentic Thai food at a low price. The owners are friendly and cheerful. We liked it so much we ate here several times during our holiday.
