We went here a few times, as we lived across the street. The decoration in the place is very plain, but the restaurant is almost always full anyways, because the good food is so good! The service was also very friendly!

Visited here two times for a dinner to have thai food. First time we had to wait for a while as restaurant was so busy. Friendly service and food came quite fast. Children friendly restaurant as second time we had family with children with us. They have baby chair and also higher chair for small children.

Clean restaurant, tasty local food, friendly service. Prices are about average. Come here if you can't be bothered to walk the distance to the extremely cheap joints further away from the beach. Or for the atmosphere, it's a family restaurant.

Small and busy restaurant with excellent food at reasonable prices which makes this place so popular. If you want to eat dinner after 7 be prepared for a 20 minute wait, they turn tables over quickly so it's not a big deal. The menu comprises both Thai and Western dishes, we chose a brilliant Spicy Squid Salad, Red Chicken Curry... More

Enjoyed our meal here, small restaurant within walking distance of our hotel whilst staying at Kata Beach. Good menu, wide range of choice - catered for all taste. Very reasonable, friendly service - would recommend and go to again.

Small restaurant, just few tables, not very fancy, but the food is fantastic! Best Tom Yum soap experienced in Thailand, curries are also great! Recommend!

We stayed in Centara Kata Resort, which is right next to this restaurant. We visited Eightfold about 7 times during our two week stay. We both loved the food. If you like spicy food, you can definitely get it from here, Red Curry for example. Prices are also fairly low.

We went two times to Eightfold and every dish we had was delicious! The staff is very friendly and they check with you the level of spiciness you like. All in all great value for money, authentic Thai food and definitely a place to come back to.

Restaurant location was across our hotel and we ate there couple of times. The food is good and not too expensive. We ate thai food so my opinion is for those. Nice waitress with a smile. I can recommend to visit this place.

We visited Eightfold 2 times on our week long trip to Phuket and Kata Beach. The food at Eightfold was delicious and great value for money. The staff is also friendly and make sure they understand what level of spice you want. This is especially important! If you want a good value Thai meal then go here.

Thank kiwigirlontour
