And again it is still one of the best Pad Thais you can eat in Karon/Kata area. Was here for quick lunch last week , big appetite, ordered Pad Thai and Fried rice with Chicken, delicious again. Prices are indeed for most dishes THB50 and sodas THB10, no alcohol served. For people in the area at this moment, Pad Thai... More

Very good authentic pad thai with very large portions full of locals eating here. Friendly and helpful service. Relaxing atmosphere. A must if in the area. Go early or later to avoid waiting. The noodle soup dish is very tasty and excellent value. The best experience of our unmemorable Phuket trip. Skip Phuket all together and go on to the... More

Came here expectinf nothing special with the dog asleep in the corner and plastic stools. Came out having the best pad thai ever. With extra bean sprouts and peanuts, it's safe to say that the 50 baht ample serving size was more than enough for 115kg of man meat. Would come back.

The girls and the guy in the shop are just so lovely and we could always see the legendary chef cooking. The food... More

50THB for authentic pad Thai and other Thai noodle dishes. Hole in the wall atmosphere but that adds to the charm. Food is great, service is better than some more expensive places, and value is unbeatable. When you see locals in line for food it means something good is going on here.

An authentic eating experience with the locals. First off, if you're coming here for lunch be prepared to wait. I was staying a 3 minutes walk away so I came here often during my month long stay on the island. The average wait time for me was anywhere from 20-40 minutes. The food, however is SO worth it and very... More

The food is amazing! Pad Thai and Noodle Soup. For the price, this place is an awesome food joint. Food is not spicy, you can add different chilies to the food as you wish. Condiments are also very good. Must stop for authentic (hole in the wall) Thai food lovers!

After a 45 minute walk up and down hills, dodging wandering bands of roosters, fending off English tourists attempting to steal our chairs, and finally waiting in line behind a platoon of Thai Navy divers...got the promised and famous pad thai... The pad thai was great...only about $2 sing/cad/aus...given the number of people they were serving at lunch, service was... More
