I really didn't expect this restaurant to have good food. Turns out it's amazing! It's one place you can find Thai curry on Utila. (You know you'll be craving curry after a few weeks). My favorite entree was their sesame chicken. It's open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for dinner only. The restaurant is clearly marked if it's light out. If... More

This place is only open Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings. I was pleasantly surprised at the great quality of the food served. The shrimp skewer appetizer was delicious and we could have shared one main as they are generous in size. Instead, we ordered Green Thai crispy pork as well as Cashew Chicken and had enough leftover for lunch the... More

Pros: excellent food! Cons: very expensive - inevitable with success but a shame because once tax, tips and whichever other hidden charges are added it makes it a less good value option.

Only open 3 days a week - Monday and (I think) Wed. and Fri. Beware, as it is NOT located where shown on the map. It's nearer to the center of town, and just behind Parrot Dive Center & in front of Tranquila Bar. We had the crispy-fried sesame pork and shared it, but ended up getting a second serving... More

Foo King is only open some days so check the board on the main street before planning on going. One thing to note is that the food is meant to be ordered "family style". We accidentally ordered way too much food as we thought that each dish was for individual consumption - would have been nice if the server gave... More

The portions here are huge! Share one dish or bring some home for lunch. It´s pricey but considering most people actually can share it´s not bad. Some dishes are great, some are not as good but overall definitely ok.

Got a fried rice chicken with vegetables, and some of the chicken was not cooked through. There were nearly nothing in the dish beside from a little carrot and celery and the bad chicken. I traveled a lot in Asia and I have also eaten asian food in both the states and Europe and have never had such a bad... More

The food was actually way better than expected. The overall price was a bit high but the portions are huge! Takeaway is even being offered directly when ordering. Great service overall and good quality. Definitely recommended when you are on the island.

This is one of my favorite restaurants to go to with a group. My recommendation is to have everyone get something different, then have everyone share each dish family style so you can try a little of everything! It's fun to watch the cook do his thing and the food has excellent flavor. Atmosphere is great!

Not cheap but you get a lot for your money. Great Asian fusion. Absolutely delicious. One meal generally too much for one person. Do a nice ginger drink. Add rum and it's even better.
