Very generous serves, as good as hotel food in patong

I read reviews and agree... It doesn't look much with tables and chairs on sand everywhere, but menu is huge and food is good. We had pad thai noodles, pork and chicken, couldn't finish it all! Soooooo cheap 100 baht each meal. Other child had chicken nuggets and chips (French fries) 150 baht.

Nice location, a few meters from the beach, in the shade of the trees. Very friendly staff, fair prices, tasty food, relaxed atmosphere. The menu is huge, many thai dishes but also the most common western dishes available. Just try it, you won't regret!

We stayed at a hotel on Nai Harn Beach and came down to Yaya regularly for our dinners. We tried many dishes from their menu and were satisfied with most of our experiments. Their satays were very delicious and so were the red curry and massaman curry. Our son was very happy with the crispy fried chicken meal served there!... More

It's kind of privet beach with clean water. Some shops and restaurants nearby. Must go YaYa restaurant for good food and cheap price with friendly staff. Avoid the restaurant call 'ma ma' They're Racist and they don't serve you what u ordered, price are really expensive too. 60% or more expensive than Ya Ya

We spent a day in Nai Harn Beach and enjoyed so much in this YAYA cafe under very colourful umbrellas. We had squid fried rice and tom yam, young coconut juice and orange juice. The squid fried rice and Tomyam is one of the best we had in Phuket. We had some other tomyam in Patong and Kata but not... More

i am a sticky rice and mango maniac. I try to eat it every day on holiday. We ate lunch every day at mamas but their Kaow Niaow mamuwan ka wasn't my favourite. I walked a few steps to yayas and got a take away one after lunch to eat on my lounger. So good- amazeballs actually

if you truly want an authentic beach dining experience try this restaurant...right on the beach...there are about 4 or 5 different restaurants, all with the same kitchen, but the one with the freshly caught fish, displayed on ice, as you walk this area, is the best we have tried there...the red and white snapper is huge and delicious and the...

The restaurant is one of a bunch of establishments right on the beach - wooden benches and chairs, parasols, and a tiny shack for a kitchen at the back. Scores of friendly kitties and doggies, although not overly annoying, if you're not an animal lover you may not appreciate that much. First pleasant surprise: free wi-fi at decent speed. Second...
