Good honest Thai food. Can't believe some of the bad reviews. Eclectic place. The alcohol is expensive as it is everywhere. Thought the food prices reasonable. Food was yummy ! It's an experience and well worth visiting.

Great crab curry as promised but ambience left a bit to be desired... Discovered a wonderful alternative where all of the locals could be found in a beautiful french provincial setting and great authentic thai food - Tu Kab Khao in Phuket town - go there first

We checked out this place based on the reviews from trip advisor and was not disappointed. I would give this place four star and would recommend this place. It's definitely worth a visit if you were in Phuket. The ambience has an old colonial house feel. We took a taxi from Patong which cost us 1,200Baht (return).

The range of dishes was amazing and not one meal could not be faulted - there were 6 of us dining. The Pork Belly was cooked to melt in your mouth perfection, the prawns were tender. I would love to dine here again, with no hesitation.

We came here upon recommendation and it was awesome! We are crab lovers, so imagine our delight when the curry came with many chunks of sweet crabmeat flash. Deshelled so you only see and eat the meat and there is no hassle of deshelling.. Woah!! And the curry was superb.. it came with some thin beehoon that goes very well... More

We read about Raya from the tripadvisor and decided to have our dinner there despite our cab driver trying to persuade us to eat elsewhere. The place is a simple house (much like the one I grew up in back in Pudu Kuala Lumpur). We ordered the famous yellow crab curry, mango salad, fried crispy pork and a vegetable dish... More

The building us old and even the decor us not there to make a wow empression. Plain simple setting. Staff extremely friendly and helpful in selecting authentic dishes. BUT WOW...WOW...absolutely the best prepared Thai dishes I personally have ever had. Spiced but not too much. Fresh. Delicious. Mouthwatering scrumptious. If visiting phuket. ...absolutely must visit. Do not miss this one
