Very Good Dinner

Nice attentive staff, reasonable prices. I had the fish cakes which came with an awesome chili sauce and red curry with crab meat. It was very good. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere - we sat on the patio. Will return if possible.

We ordered Massaman curry always a risk in a non-Moslem owned tourist place. It came as a rough approximation of the real thing which is what we expected but the dish was very salty. The same could be said for all the dishes were ordered. The Papaya salad was only just good enough, not at all well balanced. It was... More

Sad to see a number of the restaurants moved out of Nai Yang and off the beach (I believe due to the national parklands). Octopus has survived to date and provides delicious food at a decent price although they to are no longer on the beach. We were two families with a total of three young children. Staff were extremely... More

I am positive that the duck is frozen and reheated. My duck with cashews was chewy ,not that tasty and for $8 AUS.... not a good serve size. The view was great and service average.

11 days in Phuket and ate in this restaurant the most. Loved the friendly staff and the food was excellent - not too expensive for a glass of wine and a beer - but this is a must when in Nai Yang Beach.

I preferred Phen's ever so slightly food wise but the service here was exceptional-friendly and attentive. The first evening I went to Octopus I was covered in mosquito bites and the staff gave me ointment to sooth them-indeed a couple of the waitresses helped me apply it. Every time we went the staff could not have been friendlier. The food... More

Perfect beach front eateries - great service - the fish cakes and chilli sauce are to die for- the crab with noodles will restore your ardour! - huge prawns. Fresh lobster -absolute bliss - keep quiet about it !

Octopus was a regular staple for me while visiting Nai Yang and they rarely disappointed. Food was great, cocktails and mocktails very tasty and they always customized food upon request (adding more veggies, taking out spices, etc etc). The atmosphere is lovely and the staff are very welcoming. They also serve free pineapple for dessert, which is local and delicious!

When the beach restaurants were bulldozed and removed from Naiyang it was bitter sweet. The beach is even more pristine but the restaurants were gone. But fortunately Octopus remained and still stands out for location view and food quality. Plus value. And ask for a magic trick !
