“BEST SEAFOOD IN PHUKET AND MORE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

The food is great,the location is superb,it is one big outdoor restaurant overviewing Chalong bay,they specialise in seafood,also superb Japanese with delicious maki rolls,super fresh saschimi,I was dissapointed they had no more blue crab the day I visited.A must do while in Phuket,but sometimes you need to be patient as this is a real asian venue and some waiters are not so good in speaking english.Pricing is decent but not cheap,credit cards accepted.Worth the trip from any place on the island

“Beware of sitting outside at this restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Went for a meal at this restaurant. We sat outside as we went at 6pm but our meal was ruined with an infestation of insects all over the table, in our food on us, everywhere. Had to leave our food and leave. Have a holiday home in Phuket and have eaten at Vset on the same site which was fabulous, but will never eat at this place or recommend it to anyone.

“Very nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Really great restaurant and atmosphere. Best view of Phuket restaurants, nice 3-men jazz band playing jazz standards and the food is great. Restaurant is really big, it has few hundred seats outside and also big area indoor. And the prices are actually only like 10-20 bahts higher than in low-class restaurants. Highly recommend!

“Near the sea ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

The place is so so big and located near the see. Near the entrance they have a big "exposition" of fresh seafood.
Yesterday evening I was there for dinner and we tried different dishes: veggies, fish, rice, beef ... The pineapple rice wasn't good, was too sticky. I didn't like the grilled white snapper too. Other dishes were ok.

“Paying premium for location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

It's by the pier. Nice place to have a meal n I guess that's the reason for the overpriced food. Average about 350 baht per dish. Well if you do not mind the price, then this place is got to go.

Plus point. For the past 3 days in phuket, this is the first time I see fresh fish, meaning fish is still swimming in the aquarium before we ordered.
