Ate at this restaurant four times during our stay in Kata. Excellent fish and seafood, you can choose your fish and watch as they cook it in front of you, ( depending on where you sit), amazing value and great service.

Excellent dishes at reasonable prices. We went here on a recommendation. Although the restaurant was all the way down the end of the main drag, it was worth the walk. And come to think of it, it’s not a market at all. This is a...good restaurant that has heaps of seafood and Thai specialties. We particularly enjoyed the jumbo shrimp and the papaya salad. Cons: although advertised that they give free mango rice pudding, they were out when it came our turn to ask for dessert. They did offer us cut mango at the very beginning of the meal. It it just wasn’t the same. Also I found our juices were a bit small and not very tasted.More

We ate here almost every day (lived close by), but it was really the best value place we found. Great food and low prices compared to other places in Kata. The service was fast and portions were generous.

This restaurant is off the main beach front area so you avoid the crowds a bit but you still get the excellent and fresh seafood. You can pick your fish or shellfish in the front of the market and they will make it to order...for you. The food has authentic Thai flavors and made for locals if that is what you are after. Their menu also offers western items too but definitely try to take advantage of the fresh seafood and authentic Thai dishes. The seafood Tom Yum hot pot and the sea bass in the curry sauce were our favorites. After we discovered this restaurant, we ate there 3 nights straight for dinner. They had generous portion sizes at reasonable prices. Most important is how good the Thai dishes are though. I would probably eat there every night if I could.More

Amazing! Wonderfully fresh fish and seafood, while we were waiting for a table a local fisherman delivered the freshest live lobster and shrimp to the display tanks. When you order you’re taken outside to choose and the fish/ seafood weighed to check you’re ok with...the price. My husband had 6 huge prawns for his salt and chilli prawns for 300 baht and I had a fresh red snapper for 350 baht. My son had a lobster for 800 baht. This is all part of the experience, it all arrived cooked to perfection! Fantastic food, service and atmosphereMore

We did go around 19.00 and it was not busy yet. They did offer a red snapper for 150 and a steak from kingfish or a kind of tuna for 70 / 300 grams. The welcome and service is good. The red snapper was from...the bbq and we could watch it being grilled. Their workspace looked tidy and clean. There was a sauce with the snapper , but not a very spicy one. We did have to wait a bit longer for the grilled kingfish, which unfortunately was grilled a bit to long. It was a dry piece of fish. Also here, the sauce could be a bit more spicy. But that is a matter of taste. Overall not to bad, but if the kingfish was grilled better, I would give it top points.More
