We walked the 5-10 minute walk from Wyndham sea pearl villas where we were staying.
We ordered the starters suggested to us; satay chicken and spring rolls which were both great. Also, we ordered a grilled pork salad as a starter which was very spicy but we all enjoyed it, best Thai salad we've ever had.
We each ordered a main, including curries, pad Thai and some prawn dishes. All were made "medium" spicy and were perfect for us - we all like spicy food. Paired with steamed rice, the owners even brought us more rice when they saw we were going to run out.
We even decided to have dessert - 3 of us had fried banana with ice cream which was a perfect end to a great meal. Much more value for money than the restaurants in patong beach, and much tastier too! We hope to visit again!

Had dinner here with a group of 6. Location wise it's a bit out of town but still easy to reach if you have your own transport. The food though was the best we had during our 4 days in Patong. Absolutely glorious. And very reasonably priced too. Very highly recommended.

We went to poos again. Third time in 3 years and as always it didn't disappoint. The satay sauce is Poos mothers and is smoooooth as silk. Amazing food amazing host and the tranquility of being outside of Patong. Up on a hill looking down the valley is beautiful and the best thing is a really cold beer on the deck looking south. And the satay sauce and anything else on the menu. Great view.

My 2nd visit to the restaurant. It is not easy to find if you are not familiar with the place and the GPS does not guide you there accurately. If you are using map or google, do drive further up the road and turn left onto a slope (it's a super steep slope, abt 45 degree slope), the restaurant is on top of that slope.

Food wise, it is not the best you can find in Phuket but is it definitely more than decent. The prices are decent and the service is great. Some of the nice dishes you should try will be the thai steamed fish and the pineapple rice.

The place has free wifi and provide a very good place for dinner to chat and drink.

Will go again .... preferably during the late evening. Do call and book if you are going for dinner as it is more crowded. I was there for lunch the 2nd time and there were no crowd. So the trick is to go there for lunch if you want to avoid the crowd.

Cheers and enjoy

Nice experience with this restaurant. Well worth the trip to the hills outside Patong center.
It is a family run restaurant and the owner, Poo, is there to help with food selection.
Since we were the only customers it was almost like we were dining in somebody's home, not like customers in a restaurant.
Chicken Satay was was very good.
Green curry and Indian curry both delicious.
Prawns with spicy sauce and garlic sauce also very good.
Prices are very reasonable even if you add the 300 baht per one way taxi cost.
Strong recommendation !
