Just a short 15 min drive from Phuket's Mai Khao beach and we totally enjoyed a local seafood while the sun set. Tamarind shrimp, softshelled crab with garlic, squid with salted eggs and a spicy soup with shrimp and fried egg-dipped vegetable all tasted excellent. Just bring a bug spray as the mosquito will get you after the beautiful sunset.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and we have been here on a few occsions and if we have visitors we always bring them here as it never disapoints.The service is excellent and the food always great,The Tamarind Prawns are really lovely as are the mussells.Well worth a visit as the view from the bridge is amazing and the little sheds a bit further down are great if you want fresh pinapples and you are sure to find other goodies as well.

We have been here twice this week and the starters are very tasty. Service is good but can be a little bit quick sometimes. I suggest ordering your starters and then when you are finished order your main. That way the night lasts a little longer. Nice welcoming staff. Good value x

We went to Thanoon Seafood for lunch. The service was prompt and the dishes were attractively presented but we did not think the taste was anything out of the ordinary.

We preferred KinDee, Cinnamon, Ginja, Pesto that are all located nearby.

We went on the Mangrove trail which unfortunately is just begging to be better organized and walked across the Old Sarasin Bridge to the restaurant that is located at the north end of the bridge.

A pleasant lunch stop and the local "sea louses" (not correct name) make an interesting dish to try - see picture, but there are much better dinner choices within minutes by car. The little creatures are eaten shell and all and taste a bit like shrimp!

We had made an effort to take the local Phuket town bus (100BT return trip) up to the old Sarasin bridge that connects the island to the mainland, I had read on the net about this fabulous seafood restaurant. We were not disappointed, even though we did not make a reservation, were seated immediately and served a cold beer and then ordered two entrees, beautifully fresh tempura prawns (lovely sweet meat) and and spicy prawn cakes, swiftly served and devoured immediately. For our main we decided on a whole steamed red snapper with a salty plum and ginger sauce accompanied by fried rice with egg washed down by another beer each. The service with lots of smiles and the freshness of the food were both excellent. I tend to judge a restaurant on the cleanliness of their rest rooms as well, and was not disappointed here either. If you like seafood this is a place to seek out. We are going again in 2013 with our friends
Opening hours are 10.00 to 22.00 hrs.
