My guesthouse was right next to it, so I had to try. Went there on 2 occasions. Once for breakfast (omelette), another day for lunch (thai curry). Both times the food was great, and the price right. I would definitely go back.

They do BOTH Thai and Italian, mama noi was married to an Italian and lived there according to the lore. The lasagna was just OK, the BBQ prawns Thai style much better,. Reasonably priced, and in a lively little enclave on Patak Road just inland of Karon. .

We went here a couple if times, whilst in Karon, as it was not far from our Resort. The food was good, the service was good. If we stayed in Karon again we would return. Nice, easy place to eat.

I can only identify this restaurant by the photo but I am 100% sure I have the correct place! We have visited this place several times during 2015 and never had a poor meal. It's located on a corner in the main street and always has fresh fish on display. My favourite is the chilli prawns - "to die for!"... More

Mama Noi'is is a real hidden gem, offering up a huge variety of good food at local prices. My friend and I fell a little bit in love with their simple but delicious burgers, but their Thai fare is great as well. Try a lemon shake as well!

We returned here to see if their signature dish was still as good as it gets, Rick Stein came here and ask for the recipe for this dish but they would not let him have the secret one that makes it special. Sadly the day we went, they only had one serving, being the gallant person I am, I let... More
