So jummeh. Ordered vegetarian dishes, they were the bet. Although they were not on the menu. Best Panang I had in Thailand so far.

We were after a cheap meal where the locals eat and The Cook ticked both of these boxes.
I ordered the pork with stir fry basil and my husband ordered the green curry seafood. Both were delicious.
This restaurant is clean and comfortable. A group of locals were eating there which is always a great sign of value and quality.
Recommended.

You might miss the humble shop front or dismiss it as not trendy enough but I doubt you will find more interesting and delicious food in Old Town. The key to the menus is the fusion of Italian and Thai cooking and "The Cook" does this brilliantly. We enjoyed the totally relaxed and dated decor and we returned for a second meal because the food is so good. (we only stayed in Old Town for 2 nights!). Don't miss it.

I am going to echo 317jonny comments:

"Went as the lonely planet recommended it, was disappointed. For the chef to say he worked in Italy think he would be laughed out the kitchen, sure pizza bases were bought in and a short crust pastry. Only couple of vegetarian options and none of them were fusion. They wouldn't accommodate removing meat from any menu option."

That said, I have given a 3 star as you get what you pay for and for a quick evening meal it was fine. It's an OK sort of place but given the other choices round about, I wouldn't go again.

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant! It was cool inside with fans going and the Massaman Curry Pizza was the bomb!! We returned twice, once for a pretty hardy and cheap "American" breakfast and then to get more pizza. Lots of flavor, cold beer and every meal is served with watermelon and tiny bananas. What more could you ask for?
