This is a good restaurant but since the town is so small it does get busy. Go for earlier dinner or make a reservation.

I love the atmosphere of this restaurant! We had the tempura green bean appetizer which was excellent! I also had the green curry. It was really good as well. My husband had short ribs and he enjoyed them. They had happy hour specials for beer,...and they make a fantastic margarita. The servers were attentive and very professional. I would happily return to this restaurant!More

Super cute place right in the heart of Dominical! We visited twice during our stay. Watermelon daiquiri was DELICIOUS! As were the other drinks we had (mojitos, margs, etc). They have 2 for 1 drinks from 4pm-6pm! We chose to the appy special to try...3 appetizers! Crab rangoons (were just okay, huge but needed a little more flavor), chicken wings (YUM !!! perfectly crispy), and the teriyaki rib tips (DROOLING NOW, SO GOOD). Ordered the pad Thai on the second visit and it was good, loved the fresh veggies. Decent prices! Service was good, very friendly people! Overall a good stop on your visit to Dominical and would definitely recommend.More

As a group of 6, we thought someone would have tasty food. No. The chef is off his game! All the visible reviews I read were from three years ago. Flavorless salads with uninteresting, bland curries and noodles. Skip Phat Noodle when in Dominical.More

Great Thai Food with really generous portions. This open air restaurant has a rule cool vide with the kitchen in a converted bus. The service was attentive and friendly and the cocktails were great. The only down fall was the lack of air flow which...made eating very hot and the little biting bugs annoying, none the less the food was great and I’d definitely go back.More

This restaurant definitely stands out at night, though it's a bit tucked away from Main Street. We looked forward to a date night with some good noodles, and Phat Noodle delivered! We ordered the Vegetarian Satay Curry (with Garbanzo Beans), and the Teriyaki Noodles with...Tofu. Both dishes were delicious and the portions were quite big! There were plenty of good vegetarian options here and the staff was really helpful and happy to make modifications to accomodate our dietary restrictions.More

Hi Lex Thank you so much for your support, so happy you liked our place See you soon

Reviewed December 17, 2020 via mobile

This place has a great atmosphere and is very kid and dog friendly. The menu is Thai but the flavors are not. It seemed that many of the subtleties of Thai food were missing. This is not a matter of spicing up the food with...hot sauce but a lack of the more subtle flavors of Thai cuisine. Got the pad Thai but despite having fish added as my meat, there was basically two tiny hints of meat in a rather large plate of food. So, looks like a fun place for the local surfers to drink beers and hang but the food is meh.More

Exceptional service and the food was really good. Really popular spot in Dominical. Ordered the pad thai, which was good, but everything on the menu looked good.

Thanks a lot for your review, We always try our best to keep the combination of good food and great service. Pad thai is our most popular dish but if you have the chance to visit us I recommend you the Satay Bowl.
