You can order any kind of fresh seafood from the fishermen right across the street. The restaurant - changed its name to Mook Manee - will cook for you at a very cheap price. Their cooking skill is on point!

My gf and I went to the place every time we visit Phuket. You can't find any seafood fresher than that. And the price is impressive too.

You can ask locals where to park if you drive. They are very nice people. Anyway, note that It can be really busy on long weekend, especially at dinner time.

With the exception of the grilled prawns we ordered which were obviously not fresh, everything else was great.

We were here for a late lunch and the restaurant was still busy. There are lots of seafood vendors on the same street selling fresh seafood which you can take directly to the restaurant to ask them to cook for you (you choose the style of cooking). Lots of chinese tourists doing this.

We just ordered off the menu - pineapple fried rice, clams, prawns, steamed fish, mango salad. It was pretty decent.

No air con here, only fans. Price is very reasonable for seafood. Our bill was less than 1200 THB.

I'm Thai and I really wanna say that Mookdee is the best seafood place in Thailand. You buy live seafood from the fisherman's market opposite the restaurant and have it cook at the restaurant. They only charge 100 bht per kg cooking fee. Very fresh and delicious. Not to mention the unbelievable reasonable price. You can't get this level of freshness in Bangkok. Or even if you're lucky, the price will be more than triple. Love it. Really the best.

Long wait time? I don't think so.. People need to relax, chill, enjoy a drink while they wait for their fresh, live seafood to be prepared. Food here isn't ladelled out of a tureen prepared earlier in the day. It's fresh, and it's good

Mookdee is one of the most reliable restaurants in the area, and there are dozens. After 5 years we never bother trying anywhere else after a few disasters.

Buy your seafood opposite. Lobster, crab, prawn, fish, mussels, scallops etc.. Everything seafood is there to be bought. And take it to Mookdee and tell them how you want it cooked.

Try the tempura prawns, the tamarind (sweet and sour) prawns are mandatory for me, as is the tempura blah mook (squid). Morning glory and other veggies are also great.

Even the wine here us reasonable for Phuket, where alcohol Isn't overpriced, it's just taxed to death.

And the staff are good. Most are Myanmar and might not understand you, but they try.

Enjoy the evening. You won't have to work too hard,at it.

Mookdee seafood located at Rawai beach, parking is hard to find. First, before enter the restaurants you must shop for seafood across the streets. There are many shops, but prices are pretty much the same. After that you find a restaurant, I chose Mookdee because our friend recommended us. They cook to the perfection. Every kind of seafood we brought in, they deliver. The cooking price is reasonable as well, cost us 490 to cook 6 dishes. I am impressed. Definitely come back here again.
