The food here delicious but be prepared to wait for it as it is popular and takes a while. especially good in the quieter times of the year

tHAI ON THE ISLAND, a great thai restaurant overlooking the water, meals are very generous for the money, very tasty & seafood so fresh. Friendly owner - operators. We always have a meal there every time we stay in Cowes about once a year. Highly recommended.

Basic restaurant, family operated, service good, really busy over holiday period and cannot book, but owner will take your phone number and call you when table available. Food is absolutely amazing, overlooking water, decor basic.

This restaurant is not the most appealing to the eye. Having arrived to a relatively small and empty establishment with a child running around inside I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay. First impressions aside I really wanted Thai food and this was the only place in Cowes, Phillip Island. It was clearly a family run restaurant after dining and seeing the dynamics of the staff/family there.
I opted for the chicken Penang with jasmine rice and when it arrived I couldn’t get enough! The other reviews are spot on - the food is INCREDIBLE and the service is typical of a true Thai restaurant.
Two toilets are available at the back of the restaurant, drinks are in cans and I would definitely return if in the area!
Takeaway is an option if you want to eat on the beach
5/5 from me
