We decided to try Red Onion as the reviews on Trip Advisor rated it really well. Didn't disappoint. We managed to get a table straight away- 10 minutes later there where people waiting- don't let this put you off though. You'll be seated before you know it. All meals were delish.

We were told to go to the red onion and the food was fabulous. The service was average and the staff very unfriendly. The place isn't fancy but worth it for the food.

My husband is still dreaming of the red curry. Best noodles I had whilst in Phuket. Too much choice. Even had chips and milkshakes for children.

You might have to wait for a table but please do as it's worth the wait! Not the best deco, but a fantastic meal, great service and very reasonable in price. Fresh seafood is display on ice, you chose your selection its weighed and price given before cooked. Tasty faultless meal.

The Tom Yum was spicy, although we asked to make it "not spicy". Other food was middling. I don't recommend this place.
