If you have a business, move your location and are too lazy to change it on tripadvisor I have no words on that.

It is 3 over 5 because: - the food is brilliant! The best panang curry ever, the bbq prawns amazing! And it is really cheap! The staff is really kind! But... - it is a really dirty place...too hippie maybe for us, not bathrooms, and...cats are over the tables. It is a tinny place so if you want to go make a booking, also with seafood.More

A small orthentic Thai restaurant that serves freshly prepared delicious food in a beautiful ambience, the chef speaks good English and finds nothing to much trouble, only a one minute walk from the beach.

Take the advice of other reviews and book ALL your food in advance. Arrive before 7 because it's a tiny place with one cook so service will be slow if more than 2 tables booked. Deep-fried red snapper a must. It's Thailand. You're gonna get...mozzies. Would rate it excellent if they could cope with more than a few customers.More

After TA reviews we really fancied this place. Have ordered garlic and pepper grouper. A but disappointed it came deep fried and not grilled as it was not written on the menu (yes we should have asked). But all together it was really tasty! With...some rice and papaya salad! Yum! Would def go back there but maybe ask before we order again ;)More

We were a group of six adults with children that ate there 3-4 times. We ordered several dishes: grilled fish, papaya salad, massaman curry, pad thai, glass noodles salad, fried chicken and more. Everything we ate was very fresh, large portions and cooked to perfection....The restaurant is run by a lovely couple that really tries to make it a wonderful experience. Our young daughter had a birthday and they were really kind to give it a special attention.More

Our favorite restaurant in Koh Phangan being closed, we were eating at Alex's. Without regrets ! An authentic and delicious restaurant. For my part I ordered pad Thai, unfortunately there was more. But the lady advised me a similar dish, I dreaded and finally it...was a delight! I recommend this restaurant without hesitation.More

Sorry to say this but I found this a dreadful experience. Poorly prepared food, cockroaches on the table and running next door for soda water and beer. Very amateurish but I am told that their BBQ fish is good.

Pay them enough and I bet they’ll deliver to far away hotels but how do you propose to place your order? Pretty sure Uber Eats is still yet to establish here on KPG.
