Not sure why so many good reviews. Food so so. Prawns in pineapple fried rice aren’t fresh. Located next to busy noisy road with no view.. Walk across the road to Kata beach via a back lane, can enjoy good seafood at Katamama with nice...sea view. Regrettably we didn’t manage to catch the sunset view we went to the wrong place at this restaurant.More

我们来是为了获得好评......但是冰沙太甜了,冰淇淋太多太冷了。 汤太咸而且不够海鲜餐厅很平庸和沙漠。 今天我们少去了街的尽头..价格更便宜,汤也很好。 我反对 we came for the good reviews.. but the smoothie was too sweet with too much ice cream very cold. soup too salty and not enough seafood restaurant very mediocre and desert. today we went less to the end of the street..... the prices were cheaper and very good soup. eat very expensive and not appetizingMore

The Food Market was over the road from our hotel & after going there for a coffee we ended up going every day, either for a drink, a snack or a meal. We got such excellent service from Nyi Nyi & he speaks good English...that it was a pleasure going there. Their Frozen Margaritas & fried shrimp starter are the best in Phuket! At night they have live music which is really nice. Their prices are good & we will always go there when visiting PhuketMore

We saw first hand Thailand, Phuket, Kata is recovering, tourism in areas is only just coming back. We had several examples inc here where the reviews didn't match up to the actual under performing food. It's tough as perhaps it's an area wide attempt to...lift business. We are not sure. I don't want to be harsh for that reason. We can only reflect on our experiences and it wasn't great. Food was average to be kind, such a western Tbai menu the fresh deadwood was average inc prawns not cleaned, not flavour inc "garlic" prawns. Just average, sadly. I hope tourism returns and the standards improve with that influx. For now, it's not good in most "local" spots. The people are beautiful, the culture is as beautiful but what can you say when being objective......More

This was the first meal I had a week ago when I first landed in Phuket. I've had a ton since then across the island and can safely say this is some of the best thai and seafood I had here. Great food , good...cocktails, servers are attentive but not intrusive. Good price , good value for what you get. Definitely recommend if you're in the area.More

Amazing authentic Thai cuisine with locally sourced food from Thailand! I came for the food, but stayed for the service. The owner Dam treated me and my friends so well, we had to come back to enjoy every evening here together with him! He made...our experience unforgettable and I can't wait to see him and taste the delicious food again.More

I have enjoyed numerous meals and drinks at The Food Market. The owner and the team are super friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. Food fresh, served with a big smile, and just the way ordered. The entertainment of live music is a super addition...in the evenings, suitable for families, couples, or on your own. If in Kata , DONT MISS THIS PLACE!More

Hello Barry, we do have other dishes and food, but make no mistake, most places around here offer seafood because it's fresh, after all Phuket is next to the sea. Maybe when you come, drop a line via our website, I'll make... More
