Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A nice spot in Mai Khao area. The food was amazing with friendly staff. You want to order what is pictured on the menu, you get exactly what you see with delicious efficacy! I had the stir fried squid with peppers and garlic which was...cooked to perfection and not rubbery. I also had the coconut milk smoothie which was creamy and delicious on a hot day. My husband had the stir fried beef with peppers and garlic which was cooked to tender texture and tasty! Great spot!More

We found this place and only ate at the hotel again on New Years Eve, just because Mama’s was closed. Food is so good sometimes each of us ordered 2 dishes! A must in Phuket!

ideal place Holiday Inn residents. Clean and decent food. The stir fried Kale was excellent. the clams were excellent and both our salads, mango with shrimp and papaya with squid were good. however the deep friend fish with red sauce was very disappointing. i guess...the menu needs to be rewritten as the red sauce was missing. instead they had chopped carrots, onions and tomatoes masquerading as red sauce. to sum it up. nothing great and like i said before value for money. however be wary of the flies which run amuck here during lunch timeMore

In the Mai Khao beach area of the island this little nook with Mama’s restaurant and little shops is a great place for a quiet off the beaten path spot … The food here is the big draw… The crab pad thai was out of...this world and the chicken satay was delicious too.. so many people were packed in here, they were short staffed and there was a bit of a wait but it was fun and delicious!More

Mamas is the third restaurant in the lane that veers off to the right, as you turn left out of the Holiday Inn Resort Maikhao. Mama’s has an extensive menu (they all do along here) and everything is good. It’s a rather large place ,...which by all accounts gets busy in peak season. The chalk board on the back wall indicates the many nationalities that have visited, and, I’m sure, left with happy bellies! I visited first in May and then came back in September and everything was a great as before. Staff and owner are friendly and respond well when the guest interaction is of a reciprocal nature. The night in September I was there ( have been here in May too) , I had a chicken satay, a prawn fried rice ( the crab fried rice, 86’d this night, though just for reference, is very nice), and a papaya salad ( thick cut, spicy, and incidentally my favourite on this small strip of restaurants). With two large Singha, all for 430 or so. Enough for two , or for one greedy guts like me. I’ll go back for a massaman curry this weekend, which last time was so good. My mouth is watering at the thought. Enjoy.More

Nice Restaurant, friendly service and a good choice of options. Near the Holifay Inn Resort where we were staying. There are 4 small restaurants grouped together offering similar menus and one restaurant next to the beach with a convenience store. Reasonably priced & good quality.

It was really busy when we went on a Saturday night ( Noonits closed that day) but we managed to get the last table but people are always finishing so constant movement. Wine was good, spring rolls as an appetizer and Massanan curry not too...spicy and a chicken dish - no pork available as they are Muslim. Just read the other reviews and you quickly get the picture of a friendly cheap restaurant with nice food.More

The food was very good! Mama's is tucked away behind the Holiday Inn in a little area of restaurants and other shops. Follow the signs and you will find it. The only distraction at this restaurant, which is an open air with roof type building...was the flies that were buzzing around as we ate. They didn't bite, but were a bit annoying. Even with the flies, I would go back again.More

It's a little far because if you walk by road you can take 70-90 minutes. By car only 10 minutes without traffic. I don't know if you can do it by the beach.
