“Highly recommended if you stay in Patong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Linda's is one of the places on the Rath-U-Thid street seafood stretch close to the Novotel. We tried several of them but it turned out that Linda has become our favorite. Linda is a friendly person who gives great recommendations and suggestions on methods of preparation for whatever seafood you chose.
She is also a business woman, so I highly recommend to check prices with some of the other places there and negotiate your price. I've never seen anyone being ripped of there but comparing prices may just give you a fantastic meal for a very low price.
Especially in the off season September or October there is a lot of room to move :)
Our dinner for 2 contained an unforgettable spider crab in chili, a BBQed Red Snapper, Squid with Basil, morning glory, rice, tom yum seafood soup and plenty of drinks. Total damage was less than 1500 baht...

“Best dinner yet in Thailand”

Went to Linda's last night.. We got the Tom yum with tiger prawns, garlic and pepper tiger prawns, and spicy glass noodle salad- absolutely everything was amazing! Will definitely be going back before we leave

“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

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.
