“Lovely beachside setting, live music and good food, not cheap”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Hard to resist this place being right on the main beach strip of Patong. They have their fresh lobster and tiger prawns and other fish and seafood right out front for you to select, so even though it was going to be expensive we had to try it.

Teenagers always make strange decision and so ours ordered club sandwich and a kebab, at a seafood restaurant, but there you go. We went for the more traditional BBQ lobster, fish cakes and battered shrimp, oh and a Tom Yum soup.

All washed down with plenty of Singha and juices.

Lobster price was actually quite ok ($80) for the location and its obvious freshness and we all had a piece to sample, fortunately the kids were more focused on their own foods so more for us.

We sat back, enjoyed the live music, free wifi and cool sea breezes. Nobody hurried us out and only came to ask if we needed more of anything if we looked like we needed something.

Total price came the THB 5000 which we all thought was reasonable all things considered.

Definitely worth doing at least once each visit to Phuket.

“Great Steak Sandwich”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We have stayed here before and loved it, we stayed in a different place this time but came back to eat here 4 times! Steak Sandwich with chips was 180baht (about $5) love the band they have on from 7.30pm till midnight and it is literally across the road from the beach. We are big fans of Baan Laimai

“Best to avoid”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Some of the dishes were edible but nothing special, some were down right disgusting! I paid, left and then ordered room service at my hotel.

The service was good and the cover band was quite good. Maybe go there for a drink if that is your thing but avoid the food.
