Some of the best Thai food we've had on this trip! We went early as we had young children to feed and they were very accommodating. The meals were fresh, delicious and generous portions. The staff were lovely too. Will be going back for sure!

Went here for lunch and had the best Thai food we've ever had!! The curries were divine - you must visit this place! We met the owner who was extremely courteous and the waiters too. I would travel back just to have another one of those delicious meals!

This place is amazing the food was great and you could choose how hot you want it, and when they say "Thai hot" they really mean it. The staff was super nice and well spoken. It is not on the main street but it is very worth it to grab a cab and go there. A tiny bit on the... More

We trusted Tripadvisor's recommendations and decided to visit the Red Duck and it was absolutely worth it. It is quite difficult to find it since it's a bit far from main street but the experience itself was very nice. The stuff is so friendly and helpful and dishes are just wonderful. Prices are also quite the same as everywhere else.... More

Well.. I think plenty of Thai food restaurant in Phuket is not good. Actually.. Bad. Unkindness, awful foods like 3 mins microoven, unreasonable prices.. We don't expect this situation and also we don't need. If you are currently in Kata, than don't be hesitate to choice restaurant. Just go to Red duck. Really delicious foods, big dishes, hospitality, and reasonable... More
