Best place to eat

This restaurant has now moved to the other end of town and is now opposite Duangjitt Resort on Prachanukroh Road. They do the best food in Patong, especially the seafood which is always fresh and cooked to perfection. Friendly and attentive staff and quick service.

Went there two nights in a row. A friend of ours recommended this place and it was simply amazing. Very friendly staff, and best sea food. If there, you have to try the squid... to die for!! Mmmmmm

This place is fantastic for seafood and definitely good value for money. No frills restaurant but amazing food and super fast and friendly service. I have visited time and time again for the Thai green curry with prawns washed down with a large bottle of Chang and am never disappointed. Well worth a visit.

Fresh seafood that is cooked to order. Definitely go for the fresh fish or lobster. I had the three pepper Snapper which was marinated and fried in a spicy sauce. Served with salad. Wife does not like Snapper but she shared this with me and ate just as much. Delicious...

Visited this restaurant three years ago and it was very good but when I ate there recently,it had gone downhill. The chicken Satay was very thin with little meat on the stick, but the cost was 150bht which was too much. The yellow chicken curry tasted like it was made with a stock cube and very average. Probably it's ok... More

This seafood restaurant is located in a row of several other similar restaurants who all appear quite busy, and share the same toilet block. You choose your seafood at the front and pay by weight. The service was fast and the food good and reasonably priced for a tourist restaurant. But whatever you do, don't go to the toilet! i... More

The Red Boat is one of a string of venues alongside each other in Patong near Paradise complex, all of which offer one great fresh ( live! if you choose your own fish , crab etc) sea food. Over more than 12 years and many great visits The Red Boat simply beats the rest on flavor, pricing and good value... More
