Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 July 2017

We were here on a trip; 6 of us in the taxi looking for a place to eat. After touring nearby, we asked the driver for a place to sit and have lunch. Mid afternoon... near to Thailand and so wanted something "safe" as we were not yet acclimatized to local foods. Driver said he knew somewhere good that was good for tourists.... he drove us and stopped at this place, next to Premium outlets. This place is i the middle of "nowhere" off the side of the road. First impressions not good.

Sat down in a restaurant that looked more like a cafeteria than a restaurant. Folding banquet tables, plastic chairs.... and not a lot of tourists. Seemed to be fairly busy with locals. Pricing seemed "expensive" from Thailand standards...

Menu - tired and dirty looking
Table cloth - plastic table cloths; had tiny bugs crawling over near them near the wall

Food - meh... was okay but not stellar. Wasn't sure if things would really be clean... but no one got sick and it was okay. Not a great way to start our trip in Thailand.

Worst seafood lunch in Phuket. Taken there by taxi driver, excellent looking fish before cooking tasted like fried dried shoes

Good little seafood place tucked away near the outlet village. It offers more than seafood good menu, they also sell fresh fruit

It's recommended by taxi driver only.... After seeing the reviews here, I only ordered dishes with price on menu. So disappointed that the young coconut juice is sour.... I have ordered 2 dishes of veggies but both are too salty.... Lucky the Tum yum soup is fine, with many shrimps which is unexpected.
I've seen most customers come to this restaurant are brought by their drivers......

The food was nice but the a bit pricy. Taken there by our guide for the day. we ordered some fish and it was nice and really well done. It did look a bit quite but a bus was parked there so we thought we give it a go and we did enjoy the food.
