If you love historical districts/buildings (ala Penang or Malacca), you will love the surroundings here. Did I mention, the food ? Its great, ample, satisfying and great. Its reasonably priced. Good attentive service and a charming staff to go along with the ambience. Go there when you're in Phuket----Cash only,find an ATM across the street in the Mall. Drink, Dine.... More

I was there on 15 Feb for two persons. I've ordered Shrimp Cake, Tom Yum, Morning Glory, coconut and Fried Rice Noodles. Morning Glory and Fried Rice Noodles are superb. Others are quite normal. Tom Yum is a bit sourer than other restaurants. There's no air-con. Locals love eating there. A bit expensive compared with others.

Great Thai cuisine and atmosphere. Not a fancy place, but quite a local restaurant with charming old school style. Worth to visit, not only the food, but also the furnishings.

The Restaurant is located in an old and nice traditional house, but inside it's not really nice, no deco, the place looks more than a cafeteria. The menu offers a large selection of various thai dishes at medium /high prices. Although the restaurant was almost full, the waiting time was extremely short. The food was really good and tasty and... More

Raya offered some good food to us and a, seemingly, accurate portrayal of Thai cuisine in an interesting building. We sat overlooking the street and had a pleasant enough selection of waiting staff but it never felt truly worth of the hype it seems to have attracted on here. The food is good but the price is extortionately priced in... More

We visited the Raya Thai restaurant while on a trip to Phuket. The food was excellent. The crab curry and the minced pork with basil leaves a must try! Remember to take cash with you as they do not accept credit cards.

Recommended by a friend who lives in Phuket, this little gem was a lovey surprise. Home Style Thai Cuisine, with very alert, polite and helpful staff. They guided us through the menu, although there were a couple of 'must haves' as suggested by my friend. The Crab Curry, is chunks of peeled crab in a rich coconut curry, you can... More

This is the second time I've enjoyed this amazing dish. The first time was 2 years ago and it's just as good. Raya House (the building) is a wonderful nod to a time gone by and this is complimented by the most wonderful and professional staff. All topped off with this mouth watering crab curry. We also enjoyed the steamed... More
