“Harpy days.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I love the bar. I like the bar. You are always welcome like a couple or alone. The Price in the bar is ok.. The girls's in the bar is Nice. The Music in the bar is international and not so High that you Can talk together. Please visit the bar.

“Friendly bar with excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

If you are visiting Patong pop in to see Rod and his wife Lek at the "Starfish" where you will receive a warm welcome. There is a good selection of both Thai and International beers, cooled wines, as well as spirits...and soft drinks for the kids.

It's a great place to sit and watch the world go by and is only a short walk from central Patong and the beach.

There is a wide choice of food on the menu ranging from pie, chips and beans to authentic Thai food freshly cooked by Lek. On the two occasions we visited, we managed to sample a wide range the great food on offer.

Rod has a wealth of knowledge of the local area following living in Phuket for almost a decade so he can give you tips on what to see over a beer...he also likes to be kept up to date on what's happening back in England!!

“Excellent bar and restaurant in Patong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

I have been to the Starfish bar, many times, after a friend recommended it and haven't been disappointed. The owners are really nice and friendly and the welcome is warm. Music brilliant and they have now a new restaurant and the food is excellent, best Tom Yum in Phuket!!!.
Patong is manic and noises, so its great to be able to go away from Bangla Rd, and to somewhere to enjoy good music, great food and a warm friendly place. I highly recommend a visit and a meal, you won't be disappointed.
