The food is excellent! The price is very good compared to other restaurants in the area! I ate here every night for 10 days. I miss the kind and friendly staff! Thank you for your kindness! You deserve 10 stars!

Had heard so much about this place. We were excited about trying it and weren’t disappointed. The frozen cocktails were the best I’ve tasted while in Phuket. Staff were friendly and full of smiles. We ordered shrimp fried rice, yellow noodles with chicken and red...curry. It was all delicious. We will definitely be backMore

Visited the restaurant twice for dinner while in Karon. Food, especially thai curries, was really good and prices fine as well! The staff was really friendly, but service was prettu slow both times when visiting.

Really enjoyed our dinner last night, was recommended to try and it didn’t disappoint. Started with a chicken satay with peanut sauce, delicious. I had seafood pad Thai, yummy and my wife had shrimp with red curry sauce, again very yummy. We tried each other’s...meals so we could enjoy both. And a little fruit plate for dessert, watermelon and pineapple.More

What a great family restaurant. The people are ever so welcoming, the service is fantastic and the Thailand cuisine is to die for. We return every year as the hospitality is second to none. A vast menu that caters for all and the food portions...are just right. I must say that in today’s economic climate we found that the other restaurants nearby were downsizing their food portions and charging the same price. Whereas Mama Jin’s has continued to serve the same. One of the best genuine Thailand cuisine and Thailand family restaurants in Karon. We will continue to be a patron of this fabulous restaurant. Thank you.More

This is one of our two favourite eating places in Karon. Do try the hot plates they are out of this world. Also the food in a pineapple is worth a try. This was the only restaurant where we could get a large cold water....The prices are reasonable but take care it does get busy so be prepared to wait for your food to arrive, This was not open on Fridays.More

We've known Mama Jin from the time that the restaurant was situated at the northern end of Karon, almost on the beach, with only seven tables. When it was full (which often happened) we sometimes tried one of the neighbors, but none was as good...as Mama Jin. Now on busy Patak Road, Mama Jin is still extremely popular and therefore again often full around dinnertime,despite the 30+ tables. We therefore decided to go for a late lunch/early dunner around 16.00 hours, which turned out go be a good idea. Not too many other customers, nice atmosphere and, as always, delicious food. If you don't know what to eat try no.165 from the menu (steamed curry with coconutmilk and fish) and the mussels with Thai herbs, and share with your partner. Yummy yummy. Excellent. Highly recommended!More

We were lucky enough to get straight to a table as a few minutes later people were having to wait for this very busy restaurant. They seem to get many return customers which is good. We went on recommendation of guests in our hotel not...too far away (The Old Phuket). we started with prawn toast then my husband chose the tomato soup which was in a very large bowl for one! I chose the Massaman curry. As they were busy it did take a while but good food when it came. Only problem was they tried to charge for some drinks we didn’t have.More

Kanischne, Edwin's answer is incorrect - Mama Jin has moved - it is on Patak Road, around 200 meters past the temple. So from your hotel, walk to the temple, past Moevenpick, and you should find Mama Jin on the left hand... More
