Service was quick which was great as we were being eaten by mosquitos and we went out without any repellent on. The place was surrounded by young made up ladies and a few lady boys and the area was a little seedy. The food was okay and the prices were good.

Stayed in Patong again for a few weeks and ate at least one meal a day here and had a few drinks at the bar on most days/nights. Quality was again consistent and prices still very reasonable. I especially recommend the Thai dishes such as krapow, ginger fried chicken, seafood salad, green curry, etc. Service is efficient and overall satisfactory.... More

Have visited this bar on many occasions and found it always very pleasant. The staff are very attentive, friendly and welcoming. It is busy on their regular darts open night on a Friday which makes for a great atmosphere. You can eat at the bar or the restaurant and the menu is extensive. I have tried a number of dishes...

Absolutely pathetic John. For those reading this review, we have many regulars for food, and I've been eating here since we opened about 4 years ago, never had any food poisoning issues until this guy.......who coincidentally had a falling out with the manager. More

A step above the usual main street tourist trap Thai restos in terms of quality. Very authentic. Friendly staff. Prices appropriate. Also a fun ambience for a few beers at their connected bar. Not too noisy. Very open to music requests.

Have eaten here on many occasions, brilliant Thai food cooked by Lek or a member of her staff, the Penang Curry is the best I have tasted. Lek's husband Rod runs darts and pool competitions for those who like to play.
