We visited Mom Tri's Kitchen to have a special anniversary dinner, and it did not disappoint. Both their Thai and Western food were super delicious, and enjoying a three course meal while watching the sun set over the ocean was really special. Service is top notch as well. Don't go here unless you are willing to spend some $$$, but it is totally worth it!

We love Mom's Tri Kitchen at Villa Royale. We have eaten here more times over the last seven years. Every time has been excellent culinary experiences sitting in beautifully and artistically designed surroundings next to the sea and the sound of waves in the Kata Noi bay. The menu offers a unique combination of creative add on interpretations of Thai dishes plus imaginative fusions of international dishes with Thai kitchen tones. The service is excellent. And the bar atmosphere and view is worth a pre-dinner aperitif. The interior design and the subtle lighting in the trees and the wok lamps in the gardens are stunning. Always worthwhile a revisit. Also this year. Kop Khun Krap.

A wide selection of food to suit most tastes. The food is fresh & of excellent quality and the staff are friendly & attentive. The view in the early evenings with the sunset just adds to the ambiance of this place unfortunately, the piano bar next door & the pianist's choice of music which "bangs out" to the entire general area kind of distracts to the overall quality. We found ourselves & found other guests having to raise their voices to each other to be heard. Perhaps a suggestion of a little more in the way of lounge or contemporary lounge music rather than the top rock hits of the 50's etc might be in order whilst guests enjoy their cocktails and/or meals whilst taking in the sunset/twilight over the ocean. BTW, it is a lovely after dinner touch by giving all the female guests a long stem rose. Thank you :)

Great spot for a romantic dinner. Food is great and drink list is good. The prices are comparable to an upmarket restaurant at home. Staff are fantastic.

Some things have changed here and not for the good. We have dined here more than half a dozen times over the years. We have previously rated it five stars. So, these comments are meant to hopefully lead to reconsideration. A fine dining restaurant that now has laminated menus with pictures of each dish, really? The menu was once as grand as the location, which still impresses, the gardens and views. But the food, while tasty and fresh, was slightly disappointing. The very same sauce was used on a duck dish and a salmon dish; same same too the sauce on a lamb dish and a beef dish. Just makes you think cost controllers are designing the recipes and menu. The service is a concern too. No one bothered to alert our table of nine that the Massaman Lamb Shank was sold out, causing three disappointments and delays as menus were re-consulted. Our wine arrived after our entrees. The other negative surprise, waiters coming to the table and announcing each dish, asking who’d ordered it, really? Change can be good, but whoever is behind these changes is misusing this restaurant’s legendary reputation and risking alienating loyal, discerning repeat diners. The high prices won’t survive much longer unless the service, food and menu return to premium levels. I hope they do. Phuket needs restaurants of a high calibre to balance the myriad cheap options. And this location, this legacy, deserves more respect.

Dear J0hnnyG13

We thank you for dining with us again and sharing your thoughts to us. It really is a shame for you to experience our standards drop. We are sorry for the inconveniences we have caused you during this trip.

Might I explain a little of the dishes you said was the same, salmon and duck. As stated on the menu red curry was in the main ingredients for use and therefor it should taste and look very similar to each other. We are sorry for the confusion but we promise you, this is not for the sake of controlling the cost.

We would like to thank you again for giving us credit on our past and saying that we were a legacy. We surely will focus on training and improving the new group of service staffs to meet our standards.

Best regards,
The Management Team
