We (4) had dinner at Rak-Lay Seafood Restaurant which is in the middle of Lipe Walking Street. The grilled fish was delicious with the souther taste. The fried vegetable was good.

Pick 'em out yourself and they grill them up and serve them straight off the BBQ to your table with delicious, spicy dipping sauces. Basic set up (plastic patio chairs etc.) but we loved it and ate here twice

After a day out in the waters, my wife and I retired to this place with no expectations. That turned out to be a great reward with tasty authentic Thai food and a great list of tunes from the live band. Must visit!
