Finally we have found absolutely best restaurant on the beach close to JW Marriott. The location is outstanding with great sea view. Good service , and great food. We have noticed that once people discover Ma ma's, they come here everyday. And no wonder, the chef can do a miracle even with as simple dish as fried rice. The restaurant... More

We went there based on a recommendation. Terrible. Within our order we had amongst others a papaya salad, not spicy and pancakes with bananas. The papaya salad was spicy and I guess that an elephant got the bananas, because we didn't get them.

Went here 3 times, always great food and good service at a good price. Great place to go with kids for cheap Thai food and a good range of choice for the kids

A gorgeous little spot on the beach offering beautiful Thai food and cocktails at great prices. Friendly staff. Look for the worn umbrellas and fake parrots on the post if you're walking along the beach. Doesn't stand out as the most inviting but is definitely the best food along the beach strip.

We ate here on numerous occasions during our stay at Mai Khao Lak. Every meal was great. We especially enjoyed dinners watching the sunset. Kids really loved Deep fried chicken- great portions as well. All the restaurants along the beach here are really great, but this is one of our favourites.

Fond memories of Ma Ma Greetings swishing your toes in the sand. It was we thought the best of that bunch on the beach. As all have been moved inland somewhat, the magic has dissipated, along with the food. had a lunch once and dinner once. it was ok but that's all.

What makes this place is the welcome you get. A big Thai smile greats you every time. Food is to die for served quickly and so fresh. Location right on the beach you cannot go wrong. Pay Mama a visit...

I really don't want to rate Mama's because we didin't get to teat there. We wandered up and down the beach by the JW Marriott looking for Mama's. After an hours walk following lights on the beach we ate where we landed. It wasn't Mam's and the owner said Mama's was closed for the season,. Disappointed. Wish we had saved... More
