I liked to go to this nice restaurant. They hat very good food and friendly staff. But today I read in the "Phuket Wan" that the governement gave order to demolish the restaurant, because it was illigal. This happened to many restaurants at the beachfront, even they were behind the street and hat permission for the construction from the local... More

I am an experienced Thai food lover. Have eaten Thai food anywhere in the world hence I know my lime, mint, basil and ginger. Still I continue to stumble into small joint, appearing mostly like a cheap beach joint of questionable nature which turns out to be a gastronomical temple. Octopus at Nailing beach s such a place. We've tried... More

Fantastic food and on the beach in Nai Yang. Octopus has western and thai options so that if you come here with young kids (like we did) there are options for non-adventurous young palates. The service was up to the usual Thai standards of making you feel like they were welcoming you into their home.

We ate here on a number of occasions as it as next to the entrance to the indigo pearl. It was always busy, and the owner was very attentive and remembered us on each occasion. Great food

We ate at Octopus once during our stay at Nai Yang. All in all, it certainly was fine. We didn't find the staff particularly friendly but not unfriendly neither. Food was tasty, certainly try the pineapple rice! We just preferred Phen's more than this one but don't hesitate trying this place out when you're in the area.

Fantastic food is always on the menu at Octopus. You cannot fault this place. There is so much to choose from including curries, meat, seafood, noodles and stir fry. You also get a nice little freebie of complimentary prawn crackers and Phuket pineapple at the start and end of your meal. And if you're staying in the indigo pearl this... More

We normally visit Octopus many times on our yearly trips to Nai Yang beach & eagerly headed there on our second night, ordered our favourite steamed fish which we both agree'd was every bit as good as we remembered. We received a lovely warm welcome back as most of the staff were still there & remembered us. So it was... More

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
