Our group of eight sailing friends went to this recommended restaurant - great busy atmosphere, greeted well - looking good. We arrived after 8pm and maybe they were already behind but after having wrong meals, no meals and one particularly bad beef garlic dish with uncooked garlic and a bland presentation that matched its appalling taste we got to the...

After eating in some amazing restaurants in Chiang Mai, I had high hopes for the quality of the food in Phuket, unfortunately it wasn't as good! Octopus staff were friendly and the food was average, the vegetable rice and mixed vegetables were nice, the tofu with cashews was air filled parcels of soft tofu in a sour sauce. My partner...

After year we found that our favourite Baan Raa is closed and started to come to Octopus for dinners. Restaurant becomes crowded after 7PM and sometimes even full. First impressions about food here where very good- tasty thai and stir-fry food and fish&chips for our child. Service is fluctuating from excellent (like taking order for child as priority) to quite... More

One of the few remaining restaurants not to be bulldozed. Great local food, service and prices. If there are more than 2 of you be sure to book if wanting a table in the evening. Nice spot to have a beer in the shade in the afternoon.

We were staying at a fabulous hotel in Nai Yang, but the meals there were pricey and we wanted local cuisine. Wandered down to the beach our first night and found Octopus. Ate there 3 of our 5 nights as the food was great, prices were low and service was excellent. AND, it's right across from the beach, perfect atmosphere!

Good value, reasonable thai food with the usual Western classics. Don't understand why every restaurant in the strip has the same menu. Wish they would specialise more!

Nothing extraordinary but good Thai food for tourists. Not too spicy and good taste. Nice place. In front of the beach. Good service.

Restaurant looked busy and inviting so we went here for our meal. We had Chicken Satay and Fish Cakes start. Mains were Beef in pepper sauce and Salt baked prawns - shared a steamed rice and portion of vegetable dish morning glory. Drank Singha beer. Firstly Chicken Satay was fine, tasty - no issues. Fish cakes were again quite tasty... More
