Two of us went to Red Duck for dinner- I had the green curry chicken and my friend had steamed fish. My dish was pretty good overall. I also had a piña colada which was served in a hollowed out coconut and very delicious. My friend didn't like her meal as much- said it didn't have a lot of taste-... More

Great place. Fresh ingrediens and great staff. I ordered a Tom Yam and said I was very hungry but didn't want any rice. I ended up getting one extra bowl of soup with extra chicken - since I was hungry. Really nice gesture . One of the more expensive places I ate at, but it is worth it, the food... More

We went to the Red Duck for dinner and were very surprised with the food. We probably tasted the best curries we had during our travels in South Thailand. Service was very good and very friendly.

Right from stepping foot from the tuk tuk the customer service was in full force and carried on throughout. We had calamari and spring rolls to start and then both had Paneng Curry (hot, which was quite spicy for me but didn't ruin it at all. Staff offered coconut milk if I needed it to reduce heat). The curry was... More

We went as a family of 5 with a child of 4 and the food and service were fantastic. Red duck salad was amazing served in a pineapple! Paneng curry was authentic although I had very mild. Drinks and meals all reasonable prices and Marccelo looked after us very well... thank you,

Visited Red Duck based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was a little hidden away but worth finding. As advised when we arrived the food is prepared from only fresh ingredients, not frozen seafood, and MSG is not used in their cooking. We had a green mango seafood salad to share for starters, then the daily specials, tiger prawns in pepper... More
