After 2 days in Phuket, old friend recommended the famous seafood restaurant. We had lunch made by crabs. Special crabs with sweet and sour sauce. Good chose for you when come here.

We stayed in Karon in May 2015 and ate at Ying about four times. The restaurant has great food, which is very reasonably priced. The staff were great and never pushy. The beers/drinks were always served ice cold, which is great in the Thai heat. A big thank you to Moe and Soe who waited on us every time we... More

The food is good with reasonable price. It is located within walking distance from the Karon temple market. A good place to have dinner after visiting the temple market.

This review is for the beachfront Ying as there is 2 in Karon. We had pad Thai and Tom yum which was nice, also portion size is quite big. Papaya salad wasn't so great. But coconut shake was amazing.

We had a great meal at Ying's. We had a Prawn Cocktail, Basil Chili Prawns & Pineapple Fried Rice with Prawns, all were very good. The beer was cold & the shake refreshing. The only thing lacking... the service. Enough said! **Next to Mama Jin & Anna, across from the beach**

On our 4th day in Thailand I was starting to loose hope for a meal that resembled nice Thai food. Again I attribute this to being spoilt Australians (our Thai at home in some Sydney restaurants is hard to beat) but came to Yings after reading reviews here. Amazing, fresh and delicious. It's low season in May so while most... More

After following the advice of many other trip advisors, my bf and I dropped by Ying on our very first day in Karon for lunch. The food was absolutely amazing and that is why it became our favorite spot, ending up going there every night. I would recommend their whole fried fish with sweet and sour sauce (YUMMMMYYY), but don't... More
