We first discovered this restaurant last year when we stayed in Patong on our sixth visit to Phuket. How we never tried this one before is beyond me other than there are many restaurants to choose from so it was really a lucky find! We ate there most nights of our seven nights because it was so good. This year... More

2 persons with order of pineapple rice, a whole fish, prawns, lobster, 1 whole crab & drinks... All for S$40! I can't even get half of the amount of food for that same price here in Singapore! I love the freshness of the seafood & the fact that they recognise their repeat customers!

9 of us, 6 guys + 3 girls paid less than THB 6000 for a nice dinner. Ordered lobster, fish, crab, vegetables, egg, etc... The right place for typical seafood dinner!

Went there based on a recommendation of a friend, didn't look very promising but the food was exceptional and tasty, reasonable amounts too, not very clean bathrooms. Cheap relative to other restaurants in the area. no indoor or air-conditioned area. for an economy meal in a nice weather it is very recommended.

We have been to Phuket and probably dined here about 8 times. It is like our staple dining place in Patong. It is on Rat U Thid Road, about 200m north of Bangal Rd in a complex of about 5 or 6 outdoor restaurants. You sit on plastic chairs with plastic tables and they have the seafood out on the... More
