coals’ or – if American – meat smothered in barbecue sauce. Indeed, this is what put us off at first. We only ended up here in desperation, having walked out of somewhere else where the service was none existent.

Here, however, is something else entirely – offering a fun experience and fresh food all for a good-value set price. And such a welcome change from the standard Thai menu, great though that can be.

To your table comes an Asian barbecue pot – charcoal heated with a metal dome on top where you cook your meat and fish. And a ‘moat’ of water round the edge in which you cook your veggies. First-timers, which is what we were, get a guided tour and a helping hand, as they make their own choice from the vast buffet on offer.

Soon there were prawns and veg simmering in the moat. And a selection of meats cooking nicely on top. With seasonings on hand to taste. It was fun, different and were we’d go again if ever we went back to Rawai.

Price and quality are matching. Very nice and traditional atmosphere, even if ruled by a French ;). Concept is simple but unbeatable tasty: on top of your Grill you put the meat, the sauce is going down to water in the bottom in which you put vegetables to cook. Highly recommendable, not for the glitterati, but for one who likes it simple, traditional & tasty.

Great way to eat with friends and family. An open-air restaurant (like most on Phuket) there are koi and fountains and some neat art that give the spot character. The tables are a good size and lots of floor fans get shifted around to help cool guests, most of whom are locals. A container of hot coals is placed in the center of your table and topped with a pot and water. A higher middle section of the pot is used to grill all kinds of fresh meat and seafood while the water is used to cook vegetables and noodles and gradually becomes a dark and delicious soup. It's hot, delicious and slows down your meal so there's always lots of good conversation and laughter. The wonderful young man working took great care of us and helped explain some of the ingredients I wasn't sure about- something we'd missed at a BBQ buffet we'd eaten at on Koh Samui. My kids would have eaten here almost every night of the month we stayed on Phuket, it's really that good. Not to be missed.
