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

This is my second time at Raya Restaurant. I would recommend booking in advance for groups of more than 3 people although I managed to secure a booking for dinner on the same day when we called before noon.

My friend who isn't familiar with South East Asia outside of the big cities enjoyed the meal here. The restaurant is in an old fashioned South East Asian landed property with old Peranakan tiled floors, wooden staircase, old school tables and chairs. It hasn't been spruced up by hipsters but rather allowed to remain as it is. A bit bare... More

authentic Southern Thai food. First time try Thai-pea dish---the green pea looks like broad bean but very bitter taste, cooked with prawns by chili and garlic sauce, interesting. recommended dish: bitter melon with prawns-- so crunchy, delicious with tasty spicy & sour sauce.

Delicately delicious local flavors. The garlic and peppered pork with a side of rice and the crab curry were both outstanding. I wish I could eat Thai like this everyday. Rich and subtle. So good. And he ambiance is vintage old town Phuket all the way. Dig it.

Went there for veggie food and the green curry did not have many veggies in it for a lot of sauce...other dishes were tasty enough but not outstanding and the prices were high..service was just ok...overall, over priced for average food and service
