This restaurant provides a new taste of Thai cuisine. Recommend crab meat curry and deep-fried fist in taramind and lemongrass sauce. And they will adjust the food size for you. Lovely service.

We were advised to go to Raya by friends in Singapore who were amazed at the crab curry and we were not disappointed. The food is amazing. We went for lunch and did not want too many dishes so we settled for the crab curry with coconut (and very fine Thai noodles) and another of their specialties - stir fried... More

Best food we had for the two days we were in Phuket. The crab curry was awesome, the fried fish extremely delicious. Ate here twice and honestly the food quality is very good. Love it. Pity it's not located nearer the west coast.

Excellent food at good price. We had the best meal for along time here. The crab in yellow curry is a must. Crab very soft not over cooked. Comes with vermicelli noodles to soak up the beautiful curry. Also we had the fried fish with lemongrass and tamarind sauce. OMG amazing. You can have small or large serves. We had... More

I got invited to this place I don't know before but heard about, so we have been a group of 10 people and booked a table upstairs at 6 pm, so that was a good decision from the inviting people who knows this place long ago. when we left it was overcrowded and very noisy from big groups.

I love this restaurant and have been many times. It is not cheap and ( recently) has suffered from an excess of 'tours' if you go at the wrong time ( midday and 8pm) but if you are in a position to avoid joining, you will not be disappointed. The crab curry and spicy salads are to die for as... More

Stepping into Raya immediately transports you to old-World Phuket. Seafood is the order of the day here and the Crab Curry is a must try. Other dishes not to miss are the Pork Belly, and the Khua Kling Gai (Dry Chicken Curry with Turmeric)
