“One of the best restaurants Out there!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

I consider myself a foodie! And....have eaten at upscale restaurants all over the world. Don't let the price fool you, while it is very reasonable, it can hold its own on quality! Lovely flavors and some new experiences. The smoked tiger prawns were delicious. Lobster with white wine and dill a combo not usually combined...excellent. Fresh oysters, Thai style.....and the dessert.....picture a tropical tart (which was yummy) then carmelize the top as you would "creme brûlée". Now you have something exciting and different, all with professional service and did I mention well balanced wines! A must when visiting Phuket!!!

“Nice place for a relaxing meal”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great alfresco dining. Sitting out under the stars with the sea lapping at the adjoining wall this is a very different and special dining experience. The menu is vast and you will be spoilled for choice, the service is good and the prices reasonable.

“Best Restaurant in Chalong Bay”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Kan Eang is one of the top seafood restaurants in Phuket, and certainly the best restaurant in Chalong Bay. The seafood is kept fresh in tanks, and cooked to your specifications--grilled, deep fried, sauteed, or poached, Western or Thai style.

There are two branches, within a stone's throw of each other. Kan Eang at the Pier is newer, upscale, and contemporary, with a nice bar.

The original Kan Eang (frequented by wealthier Thais in Phuket) is located about 200-300 meters north along the shoreline (but accessed by another road from the highway). It has outdoor tables on the water and a much less formal atmosphere, but offers food every bit as good as the restaurant on the pier (if not better), at a more reasonable price.
Whichever style you prefer, if you are in the Chalong area and don't mind spending $40 - $50 for for a fine romantic dinner for two, this is not to be missed.

“Ultimate seafood dining”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Great food, fresh and within a stones throw of the Ocean. Outdoor dining was very nice. I can definitely recommend the salt baked fish.

“Lovely Location”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We have been going to Kan Eang at the Pier for very many years and seen it transform from a typical Thai ( for Thais) seafood restaurant, on a dirty dive boat and fishing boat bay into an upmarket tourist and thai venue on a now very pleasant and much cleaner bay.
A great selection of dishes from an extensive menu, reasonable prices, sometimes the food is not as hot as it should be due to the distance from the cooking area to some of the tables.
Best avoided when large parties of chinese - Japanese - Korean
are coached in, as they tend to cause the normally good service
to get overloaded and long waits for waiters and food occur.
