Great food, poor service and no air-conditioning

We loved the food but were disappointed with no air conditioning on a 90° plus day and extremely slow service. Having said that, I would still go back because the food is that good. The crab curry lives up to its billing; there must've been at least a half pound of crab in it. The minced chicken... read more

This place is amazing! not sounding racist here, but the food is definitely more suitable for South East Asians who are accustomed to the spices. If you are westerner, or from north asia, you are better off with the watered down Thai restaurants in your hotels. This was recommended to me by countless Thai friends and I can see you... More

Tom Ka soup was excellent! We love coconut everything, and Raya's coconut based chicken soup with lemongrass was fabulous! The duck curry was delicious especially if you like a spicy kick ..morning glory sautéed was cooked just right!

No frills down to earth good food. The dishes are fantastically good, home-cooking style. Prices very reasonable, and service is fast. We will definitely go back on our next visit.

We enjoyed our meal at Raya very much. The restaurant ambiance is very special and unique, friendly staff and quick service. The crab curry might be the best crab dish I have ever had. A bit more expensive than typical thai restaurants but I would say worth it!

I have actually ridden a scooter 20km in the rain to order Raya's yellow Curry. It is sooooo good.. In fact, everything on the menu that we have tried is absolutely delicious, which is why it is one of the oldest restaurants in Phuket town, and regarded as one of the best restaurants in southern Thailand. If you are in... More

After ready some rave reviews I decided to taxi to Raya for lunch.. Fail! The address on here is wrong and I ended up having to walk a couple of blocks. Found it eventually after many half conversations with little English being used (always entertaining) I was however expecting more to be honest, the food was OK but for the... More
