I ate here 5 times during my stay- it is very much a rustic place,no fancy tables& chairs but you don't need them when the food is so good. The place is on the main road approx 100mtrs from the entrance road to Santiburi Resort-so easy to find. The owner/cook is very friendly&welcoming. The food,as said,is delicious-the Chicken Pad Thai(60Bhat)... More

Located on the side of the road, this small place serves perfect local food for a very reasonable price. Its perfect for the ones who like places that aren't too touristic.

Great authentic home cooked Thai food. The green curry with prawns is one of my favourites there are lots of vegetables thrown in there too, washed down with a coconut shake... hard to beat. The seafood is particularly good here.

A very simple little cafe with exceptional food. The owner/chef is an incredibly hard working lady who produces remarkable food.

It looks quite ordinary... More

We loved this "Thai" restaurant. The food was amazing - all freshly cooked and delicious. The lady doing the cooking was always smiley and helpful. We would definitely recommend Uncle Noi's for a real Thai experience.

The service we received wasn't very good, the waitresses didn't look like they wanted to be there and they were not exactly polite. The food was alright for the price but I've had tastier street food, overall wouldn't visit again, would rather pay extra money to go somewhere else.

Food is super delicious! Every meal is very tasty and price is low! I thought I did not like some dishes after I tasted some food at another place, but here they cook everything very delicious. I understood that other thai places just simply can't cook thai food properly.
