Very pleasant evening spent ina wonderful building. Some lovely dishes served in a promptand efficient manner. Friendly staff and won't break the bank. A little disappointed in the fried fish, tasted amazing but slightly anorexic, so you mainly enjiy the crispy topping. Other than couldn't fault it.

.. what can i say about this little restaurant?? i visited Raya twice during my fairly short stay in Phuket (and my hotel was not close to Phuket town at all. I'd guess that this establishment has been in the business for over thirty years (from its decorations, building style, etc.). but above all is their amazing food - tasty... More

Raya has the reputation for THE best Phuket-style Thai food to be found on the island, and our visit last night certainly supported it's reputation. The justly famous coconut crab curry was a triumph, and most generous with crab, also the pork and pepper stew, and Thai stir fried vegetables with dried shrimp were outstanding. Not as thrilled with the... More

We were a bit surprised after seeing the prices mentioned onto the menus however more surprised when the food was delivered to our table as the quality, portion size and taste were extremely good. Worth it!!!

We enjoyed our meal here - shared several dishes between four. We went for early dinner but it was increasingly busy with many locals and expats enjoying a night out. The waiter was helpful and polite. All our dishes were tasty although the pad thai was a little disappointing. The atmosphere was good and we enjoyed the experience.

Raya Thai is perfect if you're a group of 4 as you can order more dishes to share. On my visit, we were sadly just two so was limited in the number of dishes we could try. The standout was definitely the crab curry - the portion was very generous, a lot of crab meat and we were wishing we... More

The food is good, however, it is extremely expensive. The menu has two prices next to every dish and the waiter explained that the lower figure was for 2 people and the higher for 4 people to share. We couldn't agree on a dish to share so we ordered two thinking that we would have far too much food but... More

The Thai food at Raya is head & shoulders above the rest. The place is most unassuming but expect to be surprised, much better than we expected.

I do love the taste of RAYA, it's tasty and make me feel like our grandmother cooked the well prepared food for us. I sincerely recommend you to taste it (if you love the spicy of thai food)
