Two visits with Thai friends. Ordered various Thai dishes and barbecue fish, all were correctly prepared and presented exceptionally well. Menu has a good selection of Thai and Western dishes, steaks, chicken and pork. This is an outdoor restaurant with excellant roof coverage for rainy days and a good number of fans. WiFi is free for customers: the password was... More

Our first night brought us here. We've eaten here three times in the last week. The staff are lovely, it's clean and Thd food is fresh (seafood is better than Thd steaks). Chilly towels greet you. I would recommend the Tom Yum Soup with prawns, with extra chilli. Whilst I love Asian food I am partial to chips and they... More

We were greeted with a wet refreshing towel. The staff were friendly and the food was good, what more do you need. This is certainly not high cuisine, but a no frills, great value, family kind of restaurant. You will not make a mistake eating here.

We ate here twice. Had the grilled shrimp and steamed crab. Fantastic shrimp! I'm still dreaming about it and VERY reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

We ate here on our very first night in Thailand. It was our first time to the country and for our dirtbag we were spoilt with such good food and friendly service. When we return again we will definitely be back to Phulay, thank you.

Fairly small restaurant on the main strip, recommended by the French owner of the opposite and very popular Smile as the place he likes to eat. Staff extremely friendly and the food had more spice than others we've tasted locally. Massaman curry was good but beware the king prawn curry was on the extreme side, my friend was sweating profusely... More

Be warned - the fishcake starter is really spicy, but good too. Lovely tempura starter also. In fact all the food was really nice. We had Nasi Goreng and chicken in ginger as mains. The only problem was the timing of the dishes. The chicken turned up before we had finished our starters, and was taken away again. It really... More

We hit Phulay on December 29, 2011, and let me just get this out right now; Phulay is my fav place in Khoa Lak; period. The food is simply outstanding, the lovely owners are so kind and personable and you won’t find the screaming hordes like you do at Smile Restaurant and other places. I can tell you that I... More

The owners treated us like old friends and I really felt I could turn to them no matter what. The food was excellent and the prices very reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant for its food and staff and if you need to rent a motorbike or want to go on a elephant trekking tour or other tour, don´t hesitate... More
