Good & authentic Thai food with reasonable prices, coming back each time visiting PKT. Even this time has improved, adding English menu (never existed before), hurrrra!!!! Next step is to provide waiters who speak some English to explain dishes!

We ate dinner here on the recommendation of one of the receptionists at our hotel. She recommended 3 or 4 and told me to Google to see what we fancied. W went for this unpretentious local restaurant away from the beach and it proves you...can still get excellent food and outstanding value for money even in Patong. We spent considerably under 1000 Baht and had plenty to eat and beers (expect younger people with larger appetites might spend a bit more). I had delicious belly pork.More

Was recommended this place by my tour agency owner(he booked all my drivers & ferry transfer) who doubled as my driver for this particular trip .. Hard to find parking in the late afternoom before dinner but the nice food was worth it.. We ordered...10 dishes & knew once the food started arriving , that we will not be able to finish it & set aside portions to be packed into takeaway boxes.. The food turned to be much better than the typical food i had at restaurants nearer to touristy areas near Beach Road & Junceylon which i normally go to.. there were a lot of choices on the menu.. It was the best meal i had amongst all my earlier Thailand trips including Bangkok, Krabi Town , Phi Phi & Koh Lanta.. 10 dishes with 2 beverages costs me slightly more than 2000 bahts & it was worth every cent..More

The food here was tasty and fairly authentic. Would recommend the green curry and roast belly pork with salt. The papaya salad and beef dish was good also. Service was on the poorer side eg our salad came out last after all the cooked dishes....But overall a good meal and would return.More

Excellent Thai food. We enjoyed everything we ordered, service and atmosphere were great as well. They paid attention to our request to lower heat level in our dishes and we enjoyed every bite.

This was the best Thai food I had in Patong Great ambience and big menu. I asked for one dish to be Thai spicy and Kaab Gluay delivered the hottest Thai curry that I have tried. Good selection of drinks including Thai pale ale

If you want authentic Thai food that the locals eat, this is the place. From now on, when I visit Patong, this restaurant will be my first stop. It's not near the beach, which means you don't get the tourist crowds. This is completely oriented...toward locals. Even the menu is thai first, english as an afterthought. The service is great, the place is clean and welcoming, and with lots of fans that keep you cool even on the hottest nights. Lots of tables for 2 and 4 people, but also several set up for groups of 10+, which we saw.filled with locals. We had a crab and glass noodle dish, whole fish with a sweet sour sauce and mango salad. All excellent and very flavorful. Spice levels were acceptable - but everything did have a little kick to it. Prices were very reasonable, our bill coming to 1400baht including drinks and desserts. This is an undiscovered gem for tourists - but at the same time I don't want to spoil it with too many people.More

Visited Kàab Gluay for our last night meal. Wish we'd found it earlier. Top level Thai food and excellent service. We ate Thai every night of our visit, this place is streets ahead of the competition. Location isn't great but you soon forget that once...your food is tabled. Excellent value 👍More

One of the ladies at out hotel Reception recommended this restaurant. In the evening I confirmed the directions with another Reception lady who told me she lives just behind the restaurant and the food is excellent: 'just like home cooking'. She was right! We shared...a yellow prawn curry, pad see ew and pla dook foo (catfish salad) - every dish was flavourful and delicious. I am afraid I have to agree with other reviewers about the service. We had to hunt a server down each time we wanted something. We gave up waiting for our bill to arrive and went to the front to pay. Even this took much longer than it should have.More

Came here expecting good food. However was left disappointed. Extensive menu with a lot of misses. Ironically i had better food at seafood restaurants on bangla road facing the beach.

Do yourself a favour and go to Kaab Gluay restaurant for some truly delicious authentic fresh Thai food at an excellent price with fantastic service! We couldn’t find a single fault with this place (not that we were looking for one!) we ended up dining...here a few times with our three boys - family of 5 with big appetites - ate a feast each time with plenty of starters, mains, drinks, desserts, cocktails …. Didn’t pay over AUD$100 in total for a dinner feast! Unbelievably excellent value in my opinion! Certainly was the best meal, and he best Thai food that we had in 16 days of eating out in Thailand. Would definitely recommend and go back there again and again if we go to Phuket (Patong) again. Thank you Kaab Gluay 🙏🏻🥰😋🤤💕More
