Fabulous food and service. Ambience is great for a sunset. You should ask for Base to wait upon you for some excellent recommendations.

To start with a good point, which is the location as there is a very nice view over the sea and for this we give the 2 points. Unfortunately this is the only positive part as the restaurant is a typical tourist place with average and highly overprized food and drinks (a small glass of soda water for 120 THB.....). Apart from the many staff standing around, which appeared a bit incompetent and in part also snobbish, this place seems not to be visited by locals but by tourists only, the many tourist vans at the parking lot clearly demonstrates this. We tried to order a bit more spicy food in the Thai style and then were told in an arrogant way that this is not possible, which was very astonishing. The high prices would have justified an extra effort, but this doesn't seem to be the business model of this location. In a nutshell it can be stated that if somebody is looking for a nice sea view and doesn't care about quality, treatment and value, then this is the right place. If somebody wants to avoid this situation, then it's definitely not the right place and as alternative there are very good Thai restaurants nearby with the same sea view and not giving the impression of a tourist trap. This restaurant is one of 4 in a group (Baan Rim Pa Kalim, Baan Rim Pa Patong, Joe's Downstairs, Da Maurizio) and after the experience made we have not visited the other places and have also no intention to do so.

Sorry you did not enjoy Baan Rim Pa Kalim. I agree we are geared to the tourists, after all Phuket is a tourist destination and I am assuming you are a tourist.

With regards to the food not being able to be made more spicy, it would depend on the dish. Many of our dishes can and are adjusted to the guests taste, some cannot be changed. We do our best to assist all guests requests.

Hopefully you found other restaurants more to your liking.

Absolutely beautiful food, service, view over the sea and great value (for the quality). Attentive staff and clearly blessed with a number of accolades for its food. I'd recommend the soft shell crab as unmissably good. Cocktail menu is also very good and not crazy prices for such a nice restaurant! The lychee martinis outshone the "off-piste" espresso martinis, veering away from the traditional recipe! Overall, a beautifully romantic night to be had, with the sounds of the waves and a pianist!
