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 atmosphere

Located just round the corner from the busy Kata strip is Food Market Kata. Fresh seafood is displayed out the front along with signs proclaiming their amazing lobster. Keeping with true Thai stlye the service was friendly, full of smiles and quick. The restaurant is open and airy, which was most welcome on a balmy eveningThe menu was extenstive offered a great variety of dishes. A standout dish was the green curry, ladden with Thai basil giving the curry a delicious licorice frangrance. For Aussie readers, 3 people with starters, mains, beer and wine was around $75

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.

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.

This restaurant was across the road from where we were staying for three weeks-the Boathouse. We like to do a lot of eating out and the food here was always very good and the staff polite and helpful.We tended to sit above the barbecues and you could see what was going on.I have never seen a chef wash his hands so often {for those afraid of cleanliness} We ate Thai food, a lot of prawns and a lobster. All good and very reasonably priced including the wine. The traffic on the roads is very heavy especially foreign tourists driving scooters fast and badly so it was a bonus not to walk on roads with no sidewalks.After a couple of visits we were treated like VIPs- nice

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.

Food is great and most staff do not speak English well but language differences is not a problem to them, they are always helpful. I do not know how many visits I had in this place because every time I am in Thailand this place always become one of my favourites. Definitely would go back there. Prices are not cheap but not also overpriced. In every visit I had in this place, I always end up happy and contented.

This restaurant is situated along the Kata Noi beach area. It has a variety of local food, fresh seafood, cocktails and beers. They will give a platter of fruit before you even ordered your food! Food Market Kata is recommended for its good food, friendly staff and location!

The worst restaurant in Phuket. Overpriced tourist trap. Be aware that the lobster they sell is not real lobster. It's probably rock lobster which has a chewy texture and bitter taste compared to real lobster, but they still charge you like it's some kind of upscale British restaurant. My husband ordered beef curry and the meat is tough and uncooked. If you feel like eating fake lobster or chewing and old boots off a plate, you've come to the right place!

Our first dinner in Phuket and what a terrible disappointment! It started out well with a warm welcome and nice table and then all went went wrong. Our waiter was either exhausted or on drugs as he seemed out of it which was odd because the rest of the staff seemed efficient. We ordered our drinks and then there was no mint. We re-ordered new drinks and they arrived some 20 minutes later all at different times. How long does it take to make a hurricane?! We ordered appetizers and waited, waited. Nearly an hour later (after asking what happened to our food) our main dishes arrived (at which point we cancelled the appetizers which never showed up!) The main dishes also arrived at different intervals which defeats the purpose of sharing. The food was ok - but you could tell it was industrial level and not hot enough. Thankfully at least the guy singing live music had a great voice and the cocktails (once they arrived) were good. It’s a pity it was such a bad experience because we would have ordered a second round (if the waiter would have ever shown up again!) We couldn’t wait to leave! When we finally got the check they had charged us for the three original mojitos we ordered (remember no mint!) and seemed unhappy because we paid by credit card and left no tip. Do not go here!

Disappointing I was surprised to read such great reviews of kata food market restaurant after our terrible experience here. I was also cheated on the price as they advertised a different price than what I was charged. I was served canned 'fresh juice' directly which they said was rushed in the morning. Right. Portions were very small, my brother had to have 2 dishes. The mango sticky rice is also not impressive. Customer service was the worst I have experienced in Thailand. Do not recommend.

I went there with a few friends thinking I could eat a good meal. Ok, it's expensive ~ 1,000 baht but for the food served... Already we have the impression of disturbing the waiters when we stay after 9:30 p.m. . But that's the problem already the food is excessively greasy even the pad thai, But the worst is when I found butterflies or some kind of giant dead moths in the middle of my salad leaves this cut my heart appetite. I still paid my bill of 1000 baht. because no server was listening to me. I do not recommend it so it's really very noisy and the servers are bad and aggressive! prices are expensive. frozen products shrimp fritters and industrial rolls. 我和几个朋友一起去了那里,以为我可以吃一顿美餐。 好吧,它很贵~ 1,000 泰铢但是对于提供的食物......我们已经有印象,当我们在晚上 9:30 之后入住时会打扰服务员。 . 但这已经是问题所在 食物甚至泰式炒河粉都过于油腻,但最糟糕的是当我在沙拉叶中间发现蝴蝶或某种巨大的死飞蛾时,这让我食欲大减。 我仍然支付了 1000 泰铢的账单。 因为没有服务器在听我说话。 我不推荐它,所以它真的很吵而且服务器很糟糕而且咄咄逼人! 价格很贵。 冷冻产品虾油条和工业卷。

The atmosphere is sad, the staff is not friendly and the food is very bad, the meat is not very good. the prices are expensive and the portions very small, too much waiting for a very diluted soup with inedible broth. No air conditioning, smell of frying oil, slippery floor, mosquitoes very present, I will not go twice. To forget . are the good reviews true?? I don't know but I'm dissatisfied.

Hello, we are sad to read your review. Air conditiong is of course not present since it's an open restaurant, strange to hear about the smell of frying oil since the kitchen is in the back and sorry, mosquitos? Hopefully you will visit us again and since a lot of reviews are very positive, we are surprised to read you review.... I sincerely hope you are talking about the right restaurant.

We walked to the beach for swim and relax after that we walked back to the hotel. I didn't expect to pass the super delicious seafood restaurant. Crab stir-fried crab sticks Very delicious. Fried lobster with garlic and. lobster is very delicious I like it very much. Here both have Thai food and seafood. And have a good fruit drinks The chefs here good of the authentic Thai seafood, authentic Thai cuisine. There are staff can speak English. I don't have any obstacles when ordering food. And Reasonable price The most happy eating today. I'd recommended Stir Fried Crab with Curry Fried Lobster with Garlic and Pineapple fried rice.
