We found this in a travellers guide and decided to give it a go- and weren't disappointed. We had the prawn bbq- which was great and travelling with a 2 year old meant we had to order pizza too- which was also fine. The food is ok- not the best we had but definitely much better than the bulk of... More

We dinned here for a family meal, I have got to say the food was very good, but there was a mistake with what we ordered, which to be fair was down to translation, I accidentally ordered two fish, one from the menu one from the counter, I thought I had ordered the way the fish was to be cooked...

Location is awesome - right at the beach. Great for sunset and dinner. Food is decent. We tried the Thai standards like tom yam, green curry, basil with pork etc. BBQ fish, prawns are fresh. And great value too!

Busy open air restaurant at the end of Kata beach. Good value food with a fast and efficient service. Probably best to go for the Thai food. The interpretations of European foods were a bit odd.

According to a travel guide you should definitely dine at "Mama Kata", since here original quote: the mama cooks and even looks over the quality wakes. The ambience is rather functional on plastic chairs and washable tablecloths, which does not bother us. But the ordered food was rather average, so not bad, but not as if Mama had cooked. Nevertheless,... More

Kata Mama Seafood is quite a large restaurant at the southern end of Kata Beach next to the Ska Bar. It is extremely popular with tourists during the day due to the location on the beach. We have been here for a few lunches and dinners over the years and have had much better experiences at night. I think it... More

Most of the dishes were pretty oilier than usual.I only remember 2 dishes out of 4 that I ordered that is more memorable. 1 of... More

We had the speciality - crab with coconut sauce - it was the best dish we had in Thailand. Definitely a good choice to go for lunch to hide a bit from the sun. Good prices and lots of variety in the menu.
