My wife and I lived in Phuket Thailand for about six months. We visited the Ship Inn maybe once or twice a week. It has great Western or Thai food.I liked the fish and chips. It has a bar but not a loud crowd. Very family oriented.It has indoor or outdoor seating.I recommend it.

Similar to some of the other reviews here I thought I was going to some beautiful beach side location but ended up in a mock British pub type venue. We decided to go give it a go. The food wasn't bad but we ended up feeling like we had wasted our evening.

Ordered Vegetarian Enchiladas, which were quite delicious, the nachos which were highly average & a Thai style vegetable gravy with sticky rice, which were decent. The service at this restaurant was great, and the food decent. So would recommend going here if one craves Mexican food in Phuket, which is rare to find.

We took a cab to Ship Inn based on the reviews and ended up, notation the beachside of the reviews but in the middle of the Kata beech precinct and nowhere near the beach. There are two restaurant sites and the reviews are on the wrong site. The place in Kata beach is very ordinary backpacker fare directed primarily at... More

Absolutely lovely little restaurant/bar with one of the best views in Thailand! You literally are seated next to the beach where you can watch the crystal blue seas and little crabs having lots of fun! The menu was quite extensive and I would say that there is something for everyone's pallet. The quality is good and that of pub grub... More
