Nice little cafe in the older part of Phuket town. Service and food were prompt. We enjoyed our meals and we branched out trying some of the non-standard fare.

This restaurant is a bit Malay! We have tried the bak kut teh and it tastes Malay.It also got Luo Hon Guo drink which is also a famous Malay drink. I think the boss is a Malay Chinese? It also offers other Thai dishes. We tried Phuket grilled pork but I think just average.

We stayed in phuket old town 2 days and ate here 2 times. An amazing experience with lovely smiley staff, decor and all the heritage that this small gem could offer. Our favs were of course, massaman curry, and "moo hong" with rice, the pork meat was like melting in your mouth, a phuket salad dish called Chai Chae, a... More

The staff were friendly, attentive and spoke excellent English. The heritage and... More

A nice, informal lunch stop. Great, authentic food from a varied menu. The fruit teas are epically good!

We were at Phuket town and went to check TripAdvisor where we could have a nice meal. The app showed that we were few meters away from Kopitiam then we went to check.

We stopped (again) for lunch at this lovely little gem in Phuket Old Town. The food is authentic and delicious- and the curries hot! which we love - so happy they haven't done what many places do: adjust the food for western people. Don't worry about the food being too hot. Hot dishes are marked with a chili (1, 2... More
