excellent

One of my favs - so glad to see that it re-opened after being moved from the beach, The prices are a touch over the top (thanks mainly to the price gouging run my the marriott and the other high end resorts that charge almost 400b for a plate of rice - but the food here is excellent

Jakkajan seafood is no longer at Mai Khao beach due to the beach clean-up initiative by Thai government. Instead they have relocated to another location near Phuket Airport. When driving on the freeway from Phuket Airport towards Mai Khao beach, keep your eyes on to the left side of the road, within 10-15 mins you should find a rustic roadside... More

Good Fresh seafood for average price. Fresh oysters and shrimp with spicy sauce is a must. Make sure you bring mosquito repellant (out seating).

I am rating based on the average score, as an alert to others looking for this restaurant. We were in Phuket and read online that this is a great place for authentic Thai food. However after much fact-finding and asking the locals (some say they're not open, some don't know they existed), our driver took us to the place which... More

I visit this place every time i stay at Mai Kho beach. The place is a local sea food restaurant, no fancy decoration. I'm not sure if they have english menu but the food is really good & fresh. The tables are on the beach so you can enjoy sea breeze during meal. However, this place is out of town,... More

We visited twice with one of the days on a Sunday and it was very busy with local Thais. The seafood is excellent. Fully recommend the fried fish, fish with limes, cockles, fried crispy squid, prawns with garlic, in fact most of the menu! Both times we sat on the stone tables with uninterrupted view of the sea. What a... More

This is a hidden gem in Phuket. Jakkajan Seafood is made up of a handful of open-air bamboo beach huts, right along beach of the Andaman sea. It’s great little place to grab fresh seafood, just don’t go there expecting something fancy and you will not be disappointed. Yes you eat outside on pick-nick tables that’s part of the fun... More
