The food served in JJ doesn't deserve such good reviews. It was one of the worst Thai food I had for such a long time. Really disappointed that the Thais lost their tradition good Thai food in Phuket. Especially the restaurants at those touristy places eg Patong beach, they are just out to make money. Their tom yum lacked the strong flavor, it's just sourish, the prawns were not fresh. The meat and veg were just stir fry with diluted oyster sauce regardless whether we ordered them in basil or garlic. Maybe it's just a place for some fried finger food n beer. Seriously not the food.

Located directly next to the service entrance of the Marriott Mai Khao resort, JJs offers authentic food at reasonable prices. Although a bit pricier than restaurants further afield, it is only a short walk from the resorts so no extortionate taxi fee to pay. Jit the owner is very friendly and clearly puts maximum effort into keeping diners happy. This is not intrusive as some earlier reviews suggest, but more in a Thai hospitable way. Preferences in chilli heat, ingredients etc can be requested with no problem. Expect to pay approx baht 150 per dish instead of baht 300 in the Turtle Mart restaurants or even more in the hotel restaurants. Definately worth a try if you are staying at the near by resorts. In summary, authentic Thai cooking at a reasonable prices, without the need to get in a taxi for those staying at Marriott or Anantara resorts .

The food was average. Had Tom Yum Goong but not spicy at all. Only sour taste.
The prawns were definitely NOT fresh.

For the same price, you are better off eating at Kindee which had much fresher seafood!

Been there with my fiancé, looking for local Thai foods.
Foods are great and unforgettable, moreover, services and staffs family are very friendly and kind.
I think there ran out of a soda which my fiancé ordered, but they went to get it from store near by immediately, I just really impressed by their level of hospitality.

We enjoyed meeting a wonderful family who lives at the restaurant. It was very reasonable and the food was great.
There is also s little coffee shop that my husband found next door. He said that it was delicious.
