We have been to Phuket and probably dined here about 8 times.
It is like our staple dining place in Patong.
It is on Rat U Thid Road, about 200m north of Bangal Rd in a complex of about 5 or 6 outdoor restaurants.
You sit on plastic chairs with plastic tables and they have the seafood out on the ice.
The food is just fantastic. My wife loves the Curry Crab and the Phuket Sttyle fish, whereas I loved the prawns and squid.
The more we went back, the cheaper it got as they lowered the price night by night. On our last night we had a feast of almost all the seafood available (Squid, prawns, crab, fish) for about 600bht for two. We ended up leaving quite a resonable tip for the staff as they got to know us and had our drinks ready for us without ordering.
It isn't flash, but it has a great vibe, great food and great people.
