Authentic phuket food

We dropped by for an early dinner and we ordered the first two dishes on the popular list. They were crab meat curry and pork belly. We also got mango salad. We really enjoyed the food although the curry was indeed spicy. We later found out that the two dishes were specific to phuket, they were... read more

I got a recommendation of this restaurant from the local service guy. Since I didn't have any place in mind, I gave it a try. I was glad I did. It was one of the best Thai food I ever had. The signature dish - crab meat coconut curry - is to die for. All other dishes are also equally... More

We saw the review by Tripadvisor and visited the restaurant on 11 Jan. The food and service level is good and we enjoy most of our dishes - crab meat curry, morning glory vegetable, spring roll and grill chicken. Please remember to ask them to go easy with salt and oil, as per all restaurants in Phuket.

Spicy and delicious. As a Thai person my standard for Southern/Phuket food is high. Rays restaurant has proven that sticking to what you know best works. It's a walking distance from Thalang road (old town) which makes it a nice way to round up the day. The crab meat curry with noodles was the star dish; perfect for those who... More

This is an unpretentious family run restaurant .The food options are extensive but crab in yellow curry sauce was out of this world specially since it was made with crab meat and no shells in site for those of us who are lazy. The service is efficient and everything we ordered in our large group except for the Pad thai... More

Was recommended the fried fish in tamarind sauce, and will nominate that as the best dish I tasted in my whole phuket trip! Lovely homely restaurant! Ordered the crab curry as well , but didn't really like it that much although the crab meat was plentiful. Lovely complimentary mango that was so sweet ! Very enjoyable meal.

Down to earth, family run restaurant with a few very well known dishes that you simply must try while there. The crabmeat curry with noodles and steamed pork dishes being the signature dishes, they are absolutely delicious. There's a good buzz to the place with a real mixture of both Thais and tourists, I think the chilli was toned down... More
