My girlfriend and I ate here every single day, sometimes twice a day, while we staying in Pai. The lady here, makes superbly flavoured hot food and excellent shakes among much much more.
The first thing I noticed about the food was that the flavour is full and authentic - not just vegetables sitting in a yellow curry coconut sauce. This is food in which you savor each mouthful as long as you can. Our meals came out garnished perfectly with additional whole spices, she really makes the effort. We honestly had absolutely superb food, every single visit here, and is a massive incentive to return to Pai. I honestly have not found Thai food as good as this elsewhere.
I also indulged in some excellent cacao, banana and peanutbutter soy milk shakes. Delicious, and full of crunchy pieces of cacao and crushed peanuts.
There was also an extremely affectionate and friendly cat, that loved to come and sit with us for a stroke and some company. Note: the cat did not interfere with our food in any way; it did not want to be fed, it did not jump up onto the table.
At the time of year in which we visited, there was many mosquitoes around but the owner brought out some citronella candles and they quickly kept the mosquitoes away, and the scent did not bother our dining.
As she was the only person working there on our visits, and presumably to this day, please ensure you are not in hurry to be anywhere else. This is slow and beautifully cooked food, and good food takes patience and it is well worth the wait. I suggest order a couple of the excellent drinks first, perhaps even bring a pack of cards.
This is perhaps the best food in Pai.Pros: Impeccable food, Great atmosphere, Friendly, but not bothersome, cat
