This gem of a restaurant is hands down one of the best places to eat authentic Thai food. Not to mention, the service is spectacular and the meal presentation is top notch. The menu may be extremely large and most items are listed on the spicy side, but do not fret because they can definitely cook any menu item mildly.

So, if you are passing through Kathu on your way to Patong Beach, Phuket, make a stop at Krua Tungtong for a delicious Thai food experience to fuel your soul before hitting the beach. Your palate will thank you!

My 5 star recommendations are:
1.) Papaya Salad - spicy and non spicy
2.) Coconut Milk with Pineapple and Chicken Curry - lightly spicy
3.) Garlic Squid

We stopped here as we were passing and we're slightly concerned as the menu was huge! However, food was excellent. Green curry was particularly delicious. Good service and great prices. We'll eat here again

Very large menu.

Everything fresh.

Waiters very good trying to do their best.

Even if known for chicken, this place belongs to the owner of patong seafood, therefore the fish and seafood are very good.

A lot of vegetables with large choice for vegetarians and vegans.

Maybe they should improve the comfort with new chairs and should keep the cashier counter area more organised and cleaner.

We have enjoyed this restaurant for over ten years . The Thai food is very good also so we often eat that at the restaurant and take grilled half chicken and Som Tom to go .
