Difficult to find but oh so worth it. My group of 4 girlfriends searched for hours for this restaurant, then ended up eating there for lunch and dinner on the same day! If you go down the main party strip of patong, take a left after Smiley bar, before a Family Mart. It's in an alley way with lots of little dodgy looking seafood shops but it is delicious. Our favourite was the prawns which came in a butter garlic sauce and the crab!!

I keep the rating up in order not to spoil the positive ratings to date. We went there for a quick dinner.

INFO - this place is in Patong and not in Phuket Town! The food places in Eric all undergo renovation and are closed for several months according to the locals there.

Its like a small restaurant hidden in an alley, right on Patong Road hidden behind the clubs. This place has a very small "hole in the wall" feel. This was recommended by our guide book and was difficult to find. Once we discovered Mengrai, It was a heaven of fresh smells and enticing food. Place was running like crazy, mostly "to-go" orders by locals. That's when we knew we have hit the"right" spot.
We ordered clams in chili/basil/garlic sauce and Grilled tiger prawns in lemon/garlic for appetizers. It was fresh and very deeply flavored.
Ordered prawns in red curry, it was by far the best curry i had in thailand or ever ! Flavors were enchanting. If i ever go back to Phuket, i am so going here back. It was very economical as well.
