Was in Phuket and found Jakkajan Seafood had moved. Got their address and visited for lunch. The food was alright but was not the wonderful food they served when on the beach. Not very friendly and I was disappointed overall, especially as I had friends with me who I had told - this restaurant is wonderful. I wont bother trying... More

Nothing was impressed. They mix flour into shrimp omelet, their signature dish, deep fried mole crab, was not remarkable at all. There is a better place and a better food out there. One good thing is they do not overcharge the food price!

Service is bad and not friendly. staff is totally uninterested, what a difference with Kin Dee where staff is super friendly. Menu is not very informative. The food was a bit better than the...

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).

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
