I was worried about food being too expensive since we were in such an isolated area but our family of 4 ate for about 1200 baht (~$40) and were stuffed. The food was really good!

Not really authentic Thai food but was better than the hotel food in the area.

Foods designed for western palates so not spicy and with amplified sweetness.

End of the day it’s a place for less expensive hotel food and to remind you of the Thai food you’d get in your average Thai restaurant in Australia /UK.

We had the massaman curry and I’d asked them to make it chili hot but turned out just oily and very salty.
Prawn toast which turned out VERY oily. We couldn’t eat it.
Stuffed chicken wings. Not bad
Mango salad - nice
Seafood pineapple rice - kids enjoyed it.

Would only go back if there was no other Thai restaurant in the area.

Don’t get fooled by the picture especially the crab. It is just waste of your time and money to eat there. We ordered pepper crabs it came with two tiny crabs, the waitress didn’t give us the cracker when asked she said no more. We end up didn’t eat the crabs where the only part to eat is the tiny claws nothing else. Wasted 800 baht for the crap lunch.

Drop in for lunch after checking in hotel nearby, randomly ordered a few Thai common dishes, the food are fine yet the beverage are very expensive especially when we want some hot water as one of our friend only drink hot water, they charge us for 50 Baht per a small pot of hot water. Apart from hot water, other Thai drinks are expensive too, we were charged for almost a thousand Baht per head. For having a normal lunch inside a restaurant in Phkuet, a thousand should be expensive for normal Thai dishes, I will not recommend friends going there in future.
