Visited this during my Sandbox stay. The food was fresh and delicious, and affordable too! JJ is a delight. Even though there’s very little customers during this time, the restaurant was clean, well lit and inviting. It’s family run and jj’s wife can really cook!...Would definitely recommend. The whole fried fish (sea bass) was a real show stopper. If you’re staying at the Anantara they can send you to this restaurant in a buggy. It’s walking distance from the JW and the Anantara and the AVANI.More

Been coming here for years, so glad it is open despite the pandemic. We're here with Sandbox and many places closed - less than half the restaurants open at JW Marriott. Good local food, very reasonable prices, wide variety. A short walk from JW/Phuket Beach...club, behind the Mai Khao Club: walk behind turtle village, through the laundry/repair shop, it is right outside the back exit. Or take a buggy from hotel.More

Nice genuine Thai food - low key but JJ really makes you feel welcome - Been there twice allready- we will be back again. It’s only 5-10 min walk from JW Marriott

The owner certainly has a style of familiarity to him which might not suit everyone. Food was average. Next to Singh restaurant but would go there in personal preference.. Some love JJs

During our 2 week stay in Phuket, we went to JJ’s for dinner 3 times. Walking distance from Marriott Mai Khao, lots of options, great food, at very low prices (about 150 Baht per entree). I will definitely return on my next trip to Thailand.

Dinner is always fun with JJ! Kids love him! Food was good too! And cheap! We’ll be back! They could do with tidying up in their backyard though.

If you are squeamish, demand clean tables, aircon, an insectfree area and clean toilets do not go. If you don't mind all mentioned above and also want great food for a great price with great service and a laugh or two, please try it out!

Warm Welcome from the staff and cold beer!! Basic but clean and relaxed atmosphere and the staff make you really really welcome with jokes and entertainment. We were stopping in a 5 star hotel and fancied a drive and a change of food, this place...was certainly as good as the hotel food at a fraction of the price. Lots of choice on menu, Massaman curry was the best iv ever had....More

We were staying in Mai Khao and wanted a change of scenery one evening. JJ's was recommended on TripAdvisor so we decided to give it a go. The Thai food was excellent, very authentic and great value. The service was also great, the staff are...super friendly and helped entertain our 2 yr old daughter which was really appreciated.More
