We visited the restaurant on a rainy day. The atmosphere was great as the place was cool, clean and the air was fresh, the bay just oozes w tranquility. The servers were not that friendly, at times towards being hostile! A request of hot water was fulfilled w a 1.5lt lukewarm bottled water. We ordered a steamed live fish, a... More

This restaurant and the taxi drivers in cahoots with it give Phuket tourism a bad name! Stay away from this restaurant unless you don't mind getting ripped off.

Sorry, no way could I possibly recommend this restaurant. Five of us went for lunch (recommended by a driver who was obviously getting a kick-back) and we all agreed it was the worst place we have eaten at (and two of our party have been to Phuket over 30 times).. First they treated us like a joke, laughed when we... More

We had visited this place in May 2014. On our request, they served superb vegetarian thai green curry, pad thai noodles, and papaya salad. Really nice taste and the setting of this restaurant is just so amazing, overlooking the sea. Don't know about the sea food as we did not try it. If in that area, you can definitely try... More

We booked our one day tour to the Phuket town visit with a local travel agency and lunch was part of the package in our trip. We were brought to this restaurant for lunch and this restaurant is located at the beach and with a scenic view. We had our bet Thai food in this restaurant and yes, they serve... More

Our driver bought us to this restaurant after asking him to take us somewhere pleasant to eat. Yes the bathrooms/toliets are pretty dire but many are in thailand. The view is outstanding, its worth visiting just for a drink to soak up the wonderful scenery. The waitresses were a little slow especially when we wanted to pay...it took them a... More

Our driver took us here for lunch. They had S (90 Baht), M (200 Baht) and L (280 Baht) size dishes. We asked what's the difference, waitress said S is for 1 person, M for 2-3 persons. I ordered a S size fried noodles with shrimps and a soft shell crab (supposely 2 crabs cut in small pieces) and my... More

Like everybody else, our driver recommended this place for live seafood and we trusted his recommendation. Unfortunately we tried to check it out first on Trip Advisor but couldn't understand the name of the restaurant to do so. Place is set up for large buses, that should have been our first tip that it wasn't a good restaurant. It just... More

First your local taxi driver offers to take you to "nice seafood restaurant".....we arrived at the above, ordered 1 soft shell crab dish and four tiger prawns with a large rice and a glass of wine and 1 soft drink. We were told the prawns were 150 baht per 100 grams, fine. Had nothing else, asked for bill, 1850 baht... More
