My main reason for picking this restaurant was the fact I knew it could handle a big party of people reasonably well, I have eaten here on and off for the past nine years, but never with a group of people this big. The most difficult bit was order taking, the food was excellent, - soft shell crab being one... More

There are a few big restaurants near the Palai beach (go to Phuket zoo and continue after the zoo till the end of the road). The first one (Pla Rai) is the busiest one and is also a good choice, the last one (Phong Phang) to be avoided as they are a tourist trip letting you pay double the price... More

Very good Thai food with a stunning view. Local place, but very charming. Low prices and high quality on the food. We will come back!

Excellent seafood in a good location. This is a big, mainly out door area by The north shore of Chalong Bay. A bit outdated but the food was sensational. We ate BBQ Lobster, chilli mud crab and chicken pad thai. They were all very good. Best lobster ever eaten. The service was ok. Our driver preferred we went to the... More

We ordered two tiger pawns, two "lai liu" pawns, two big crabs, one big fish and vegetable and a fresh conconut, total cost 2,200 bath. The seafood is alive and you can pick it on from the water tank. The seafood in phuket elsewhere is frozen, not allive.Tangkae is very near to Phuket Zoo and easy to find.

This restaurant is definitely in my favourite restaurant list (that is becoming shorter and shorter...) The place has a beautiful view on the sea and on Panwa Cape, and the restaurant is very big, with large space between the tables and plenty of flowers decorating the site . I always find the staff kind and helpful, nothing to complain. My... More

Stopped going about three years ago because service was poor. We went back again this week, walled into the restaurant and were ignored, lots of staff wandering about but no one to show us to a table. We walked out and spent ouroney elsewhere. Used to like the place nice setting and decent food but it's hone down hill, caters... More
