“Best dinner in 2 weeks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

My family and went to Linda's last night. This is a fantastic little road side set up. Linda is a lovely lady and took time out to talk to the kids and made sure we were enjoying the meal. We had a whole lobster, BBQ snapper, garlic prawns, chicken satay skewers and fried rice (which my kids thought was the best during our time in Phuket).

As per lobster anywhere in the world you pay a price but it's still very cheap compared to Sydney.

To get there head north from the large Novatel on Rat U Thit road about 150 metres. Lindas is across the road from the Family Mart and 7/11 next to similar looking seafood places. Just look for the Linda Seafood sign.

“Amazing sea food by an amazing chef. Street diner.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

The place is an ofried shrimps and crabs steamed with lemon sauce and seafood pineapple riceutside diner looking at the walking street, with similar restaurants around. The restaurant is marked by a small placard hanged on a pole. The odour might be a little bit bad from different street sources, but when we sat at the end of the restaurant it was ok.

However we tried fried shrimps and crabs steamed with lemon sauce and seafood pineapple rice and the food was awesome. Linda is also a very nice person, good chef and good sales person :)

There are no toilets, only a bowl of water with lemon they give yoi to wash your hands in.

“How good is this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

I had the pleasure of meeting Linda and her employees at this pop up restaurant outside Mai Thai Guesthouse when I was on holidays in November 2012. The young waiters were a lot of fun and very knowledgable. Linda was quiet the five nights we ate there but you could see she ran a tight ship and what a cook my goodness for price and quality, there is no equal in Patong. Three of us are big men and had a spread fit for three kings on the last night we were in patong and struggled to spend 1500bht with drinks lots of drinks what a night that was. Staggered all the way to Bangla rd and kept the festivities going

“Fantastic seafood dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Owner of this restaurant is Linda, a very friendly and funny auntie from Chiangmai. Able to speak Mandarin, Hokkien, English and Thai.
Food was fantastic. The gravy of the food goes very well with white rice, the tenderness of the lobster meat is like heavenly. Crabs and fish are all very fresh and you can choose the seafood to be cooked from the selection.
Lobster, crabs, fish and other seafood all reasonably priced. Outdoor seating with overhead tent. Must try again when have the chance to go Patong, Phuket.
