We found this place on trip advisor because sometimes being vegetarian takes a bit more planning! We went 2 out of the 3 nights we were here! The vegetable Massaman was soooooo good! And only 90baht! We also had the eggs in tamarind, which I had made myself before back in the UK. This was really good too! Atmosphere really... More

We visited Massaman 3 times and we were satisfied every time. The waiters were very friendly, the food very tasty. Fried papaya salad and pad thai were our favourites. Mind it is packed sometimes so you need a reservation.

As you can eat good fresh Thai food so cheaply from the street food stalls around Ao nang it's easy to become a bit tight and see places like massaman as quite expensive, when in reality you wouldn't get a Big Mac meal in the UK for the cost of most dishes on their menu. We'd read the highly favourable... More

We arrived and were lucky to squeeze in. Ordered the papaya salad, fried mixed vegetables and Massaman curry with rice. Fast and attentive service coupled with tasty authentic food meant we were in and out in less than an hour with smiles on our faces. Just go!

The food here is delicious! My husband had the Massuman Chicken and I had the Grilled Baracuda in a green curry with coconut. Both of us would have licked the plates if we could have. They also make the best mango smoothies I've ever had 😋

Read the reviews of papaya salad, so made special visit, as decent cold salad meals are hard to find. Our combination garlic bread, tomatoes, glass noodle salad and papaya salad was good. But the papaya salad reviews left us non-plussed, as it seemed just grated cabbage: we checked and apparently grated young papaya was part of the mix - asked... More

Read some mixed reviews about the place. But it was across the street and value food. And pretty good value it was. Prawn pad Thai was 90baht, it came with 4 prawns, couldn't believe it. I've had 60baht pad Thai and there were only two prawns, so prawns wise, it's winning already. Next is the portion size, I was very... More

We really enjoyed the food here, and the service was pretty good. It is so so cheap!! And they did our dessert to take away. We had- chicken skewers, garlic chicken, a tamarind dish, laab, spicy salad and green veggies. All were great. And the mango sticky rice was delicious. I think for all of that plus 4 non alcoholic...
