Food was honestly the best pad Thai I've had in my travels of Thailand so far. But the reason I gave it a 3 was because we waited an hour for our food. That was confusing because there was only one other table of people there at the time. It also seemed that people who came after us were getting... More

One of the best if not the best place for Thai food I've been to. Try the Panang Curry with chicken - scrumptious!

This is the tag line on the sign and I have to agree. It is a bit like eating in someone's home as the front room houses the bar and opens out onto the deck. I have not tried the western food but the Thai food is excellent, and unlike one reviewer, I have always found them to be very... More

Every day I'm in Kamala I try to eat 1 meal at mams. The food is excellent. I love the fried prawns, pork ribs and the curries.

This was easily the best food that we ate on our 3 week trip around Asia. Well worth visiting. Make sure that you ask for chips as they are homemade (rather than fries). I had chicken Cordon Bleu served with mash and a peppercorn sauce which was huge, and delicious. Both the children had steak which they loved, and OH... More

This place is incredible! Situated a bit out of the way but so worth the trip. The restaurant is essentially the extension of Mam's own home- she cooks everything from scratch and packs a punch with flavours. (It was telling when my friend asked for apple crumble and Mam, very apologetically, advised she hadn't had time to make it. Talk... More

One of the best little secrets for dinner, the most amazing Penang Gai (Chicken Curry) on the island. Mam makes every effort to accommodate even the fussiest of clients and she always does it with a smile. Great local Thai food and because of the training from her partner Lawrence (sadly deceased) outstanding European food too. Highly recommended

Wow if you like getting value for money then it's Mam's you need to go to. Tucked away about half a kilometre up Soi Oh La La. I ordered the Schnitzel and it came with veggie and mash and mushroom gravy. Absolutely delicious and the 2 good size pieces made it a rather large meal. Have had it many, many... More
