Good food near Doubletree Surin,Phuket

Just 10 minutes of slow walk along the beach from Doubletree by Hilton. Randomly choosed 1 seafood tomyam,steamed white snapper with lemon and squid cooked with curry powder. Very delicious. The environment at noon time is very relaxing with slow music and the place is quite clean too. A few... read more

This place is well presented, nice friendly staff. But the food was terrible, wet rice, dried out chicken, tasteless seafood. There are certainly many better choices in Surin. Will not be back.

I see by my last review in 2013 (in Danish) that nothing much has changed. However, the new Government has restricted use of the beach, so the restaurant area is a good deal smaller. Having said that, the menu is the same with all the delicacies available. Friendly Thai service as before, but the second time we visited this year,... More

Came during the late afternoon and it was a beautiful day, but when we sat at one of the tables near the beach, we saw a pool of smelly black water right in front of us. I don't understand how this fetid pool of filthy stinking water is allowed to happen on such a beautiful beach. We were told that... More

Always busy in the evenings, service a little slow and food slightly more expensive although quality was good when it eventually arrived. Nice tough of offering a torch to read menu

The restaurant was empty but the restaurants next door where hopping! That should have been a a hint and a half! We ate here based on hotel's recommendation and beside the high prices I was up all night throwing up in the toilet! I would really avoid this place.

It's a good spot and we had a table on the beach so we could eat with the sand between our toes. Nice tasty food and good cocktails. It was a little on the pricey side but a good place to spend Christmas Eve.

Visited last year and all was great. Food , location and service. Sadly this year the food was not up to previous visits , also the seating on the beach was gone due to the military take over . The restaurant is much smaller and lost its wow factor. Disappointing. Very popular with the Russians though.

Ate here for dinner one night and was disappointed. The place was almost empty but we'd heard good things about it, so decided to give it a try. The prices are noticeably more expensive compared to other options nearby, for all food and drinks. If the food was particularly good however, this was fine. But it wasn't, it was on... More

We have eaten at another restaurant along this stretch of beach twice before and the food has been amazing so we thought we would try somewhere new . Pla has all the looks , fresh clean modern and inviting , but sadly that's where it ends . We ordered Tom Yum and Tom Kha Goong , Fried Chicken with Basil... More
