Just loved this restaurant. The decor is beautiful. The cocktails & food excellent. While it is not cheap it is worth a visit. This place would have scored 100% in my book was it not for the terrible service. The waiters totally ignored us &...concentrated on the bigger groups that were arriving or on their cell phones I would expect them to speak a little English as it looked as if it was mainly tourists dining there but they could not assist at all. What a pity that management are not more hands-onMore

We went twice. First time no table so we returned two days later. Was expecting a good food but disappointed after the dinner. 1. We ordered 3 dishes and 2 drinks including the pork with dark sauce but this one with lots of black pepper...too that almost every table would order. 15 mins later the male waiter came back to inform us the chicken wing is not available so we re-ordered other to replace. However, very soon the 2 dishes arrived. The salad we purposely stated NO spicy but it served with spice. So asked them to change it. The famous pork served with no temperature and i ate 1 it was rough which has surprised me. So we asked them to reheat. It came back with sauce was reheat but the pork is still serving cold. We didn’t want to wait anymore so we just have it. Honestly the same dishes of that famous pork that we took in the other restaurant One Chun Cafe & Restaurant so much delicious than this restaurant. That one was juicy, tender, served hot and authentic. 2. When we settled the bill, we were not allowed to use credit card as our bill was 960Baht, 5% will be imposed if the bill not exceeding 1000Baht. As we were running low in cash, we thot to reserve the cash for the taxi. But I didn’t feel comfortable that we should pay the 5% extra charges which was not told in advance. Otherwise I would have ordered something extra to make it over. However, I advised him that they should make it clear in front of their door or in the menu if they have such regulations. As their entrance has displayed a big standing signage said welcome Visa or Master, cash free system…ironically they asked for an extra service charges on top. 3. The male waiter attitude need to be improved. Perhaps after all the above incidents, we saw him speak bad things about us to other local customers but obviously he didn’t know we were watching at the corner after we left the restaurant as he was pointing here n there at the table we sat, can tell from his aweful expression. Deeply disappointed, food not up to what we expect already an upset and I rather not visit the next time, I won’t even want to write anything to mention the dinner at the restaurant. But the male waiter attitude made me changed my mind to make it public.More

Excellent food!! Large portions so don’t go mad feeding the family! The green curry and the mango snapper is definitely worth ordering. Just a tip….. we ordered starters but all the food came at the same time so we felt a little overwhelmed by all...the food. We are a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 teenagersMore

It’s a beautiful setting but with average food. I had Tom yum with prawns…. It was bland & 3 small prawns. I also had fried pork in fish sauce which was very chewy!! You’re also sharing your lunch with the many flies. When I got...the bill the waitress was very quick to point out there was no service charge… When she returned with my change she stood over me waiting for me to tip which was very off putting! I tried here as it was on the Michelin app but I wouldn’t recommendMore

Lovely southern thai style food set in a typical old phuket atmospheric building Not your average fare but well worth going out of the way for Try lots of small vegetables but beware if you don’t like it spicey some of the typical southern dishes...are fiery Service is ok and the price is very good value considering the atmosphere Book a table unless you enjoy a long waitMore

The restaurant was completely full. We had to wait for aprox 45 min to get the table because we didn't have a reservation. On the other hand the food was AMAZING! I ate crab curry which was recommended on the menu and my girl had...green curry with shrimps. At the end we ordered the dessert which was delicious too. I suggest you to make a reservation before because it seems that people really love to eat there. I was a little bit disappointed because the kitchen closes at 8 PM and the restaurant at 9.30 so you have to come soon enough. Overall I highly recommend the restaurant.More

We are longterm Phuket residents. Dropped in today for lunch for 2 - only to leave very angry. Service was atrocious, staff had this nonchalant unmotivated attitude, running around like headless chicken, not focused. Half the food we ordered never arrived, despite us reminding them...twice. The food we had was average - tourist food at best. We asked for the manager, only to be told there is no manager. This place is totally overrated.More

After reading the reviews we really wanted to try this restaurant - it was hit-and-miss. The food is very good, albeit quite pricey The setting is nice, but we felt a bit crammed in The service needs much improvement. Staff weren't overly friendly or helpful...and it took us an eternity to order and even longer to receive the food because they were overstretched. We would have ordered more food - but couldn't be bothered to wait in the end. Book ahead if you want to go, as it gets very busy at lunchMore

Very average, and like many previous reviews, service was not what you’d expect. Rude greeting on arrival and it sort of felt we were in the way somehow. Main courses very average and uninspiring. Payment was interesting: the Thai family next to us paid using...their mobile/ app. He then turned to us, said cash only accepted. What can you do? Shan’t be rushing back.More

Me and my partner ate here both nights we stayed in the old town of Phuket. We found it by TripAdvisor and said we would give it a go. We arrived at 8.20 and didn't get the nicest welcome I have to say we were...both taken back by it. It was a manager/ supervisor who was at the door. He half motioned us in while instilling a sense of panic about the last orders being in 10mins and kitchen closing at 9. We didn't know this before we went, Google says closing is 9.45 so we thought plenty of time for us. Strange to be putting off customers especially coming out of/ during the covid situation. It was very busy and the atmosphere is a bit chaotic but nice décor. Anyway we got our order in and it came out at lightning speed. It was really good and very reasonably priced. We went back again the next night. Wasn't as busy as the evening before and service was a little shaky but the manager/ supervisor stepped in to look after us at a later stage and everything was great just like the evening before. Things I would note just out of personal preference. The plates, cutlery and glasses are on the table when you arrive. It's hard to control flies anywhere but looking at flies running all over your plate before you have even sat at your table is terrible. We didn't eat off those plates or use that cutlery, the dishes they have give plenty of provision for you to add your side dishes to the main and they give you a spoon with it! So we just used spoon directly from the kitchen. This thing of leaving everything on the table is common practice in alot of places so doesn't turn us off we just work our way around it. I can't comment on the bathrooms as neither of us used them. Waiting staff are nice and seeing as they don't have an English till set up they go through the whole bill for you when they bring it down.More
