We arrived early, 6.30 as advised to avoid a full house when the service is chaotic.However the chaos fully evident from the moment when we arrived and the restaurant was only half full. You need to grab a waitress as they rush past your table to get a drink, to get a menu and then to get your order taken.... More

On my second Phuket trip, revisited Red Snapper again for a light meal. The salmon cream cheese rolls were as good as always, also salmon sashimi was very fresh and delicious. Bruchetta was excellent - fresh tomatoes, well seasoned and crispy toasts.

We went for a family dinner at the Red Snapper in Kata and were quite disappointed. Several dishes were not available (pork-fried rice, really??) and the portions were small. My daughter did not receive her Katsu until everyone else had eaten and we reminded the waitresses several times about it. The same issue with my son's drink - we had... More

Probably the most interesting food combo in Kata, and all cooked brilliantly, very professional kitchen, portions perfect size ( we found so many places in Phuket dishing up huge portions of food, really not good). Only let down was that service seemed a little green, rookies maybe on the night we were there.

Located in Kata's best dining street. The Red Snapper offers a menu that contains an amazing array of raw and cooked Japanese delicacies. It also offers an extensive range of Italian food. We have eaten Japanese food all over the world and love this place so much, we have been back 5 times, as the menu is so extensive and... More

We came here for dinner one night, and both had pasta. It is a Japanese-Italian restaurant. My tomato pasta was tasty, and came with cheese to go on top - it was a real home comfort meal. My boyfriend had the mushroom pasta, which was a bit less tasty and didn't come with cheese, but it was OK. Staff are... More

I tried the Japanese-style mushroom and seaweed spaghetti. It was fairly tasty and good value. But the pasta was undercooked, not al dente, because it was too hard to roll up with a fork and quite difficult to eat as a result... I flicked oil everywhere. Staff were great and atmosphere ok.

Red snapper Japanese&Italian Restaurant.
We served traditional Japanese food such as sushi& fresh sashime cooked by Japanese chef.Also You can enjoy salad, pasta or fish& meat dishes with our selected house wine then finish with our home made desert&Italian coffee all resonable price.
Red snapper is cozy little restaurant(40seats).We recommended book a table especially at dinner.
