Kan Eang 2 Seafood Restaurant

Kan Eang translates as ‘relaxed’ in English and this is definitely an apt name for this large beachside restaurant just north of Chalong on Phuket’s east coast. Breezy and shady, most of Kan Eang’s seating is outdoors, set under tropical almond trees, although there is an indoors section. Very popular with groups and families, the restaurant can get busy in the evenings but at lunchtime and during the afternoon it’s a veritable haven of peace and quiet. Read More...

Mor Mudong

Mor Mudong is next to Klong Mudong, right in among the mangroves. Many of the dishes are typical fiery Phuket food, with no holds barred, but there are milder dishes on the menu.

Tel: 076 282 302
Cuisine: Very Local - Thai and Seafood

Palai Seafood

If you had to choose just one thing that Phuket is famous for, many people would opt for its sensationally fresh seafood. Phuket’s surrounding waters teem with the sort of marine life that would leave Jacques Cousteau dancing the calypso and wise visitors make sure that they benefit from this abundance. As a result there are many seafood restaurants on the island yet only a few can boast a great view in an easy-to-find location. But Palai Seafood can. Read More...

Opening Hours: Daily from 09:00 – 22:00
Location: On the same road (Soi Palai Road) as Phuket Zoo, right at the beach end.
Tel: +66 (0) 76-282174

Prantalay Seafood

Soi Palai is a great address for good seafood and laid-back eating. There must be at least close to 10 seafront venues to choose from. Prantalay is one of the more popular restaurants serving fresh seafood cooked in the real Thai style, a long way away from the word ‘fusion’. Try to be there for sunset; somehow the meal is just much more delicious with it. Note: not all Thai foods are spicy, so take your time when going through the extensive menu.

Opening Hours: Daily from 09:00 – 22:00
Location: Soi Palai (past the Zoo)
Cuisine: Thai, Chinese and seafood
Price Range: Affordable


You can’t help noticing this bright-red modern-designed Italian eatery located in Fisherman’s Way shopping arcade 500 metres from Chalong circle. It’s a big, brightly decorated place with a correspondingly large menu of Italian dishes, wines and desserts. Prices are reasonable and it’s even got outdoor air conditioning. Pasta servings can be a little stingy and the service demands a lot of patience (and you’ll pay an extra 10% service charge) but, aesthetically speaking, it’s a treat.

Opening Hours: 11:00 – 15:30, 18:00 – 23:00
Location: Fisherman’s Way 500 metres south of Chalong
Tel: 076 384 686

Cuisine: Thai & European

Sala Mexicala

A good, compact ‘pan-American’ restaurant serving a good range of healthily prepared North American and Mexican dishes. Mexicala has probably the largest selection of tequila on the island, although the wine list is limited. Intimately lit, it’s a good place for a date but book ahead as there are only a few tables.

Location: 100 Viset Road, in between the Lemon gas station and the horse riding stables
Tel: 082 287 4287

Tassanee Seafood

A well-known family run Thai restaurant, Tassanee has been serving customers in Chalong Bay for more than three decades. Its stunning location with great views of the bay helps to balance the lack of décor inside the restaurant and again, its simple but clean setup helps keep prices down. Fresh ingredients make Tassanee’s dishes stand out, especially geng som (spicy yellow seafood curry) and nam prik goong seab (shrimp chilly dip). These two are locals’ favourites.

For visitors who don’t fancy too spicy food, there is pla sam rod (sweet and sour fish) on the menu, tom kha seafood (seafood in coconut milk soup) and tod man goong (deep-fried shrimp cake). Many seafood items here are a lot cheaper than those sold in other beachfront venues such as Patong and there’s plenty of free parking space at the pier’s public car park. Talk about convenience!  

Opening Hours: Daily from 09:00 – 22:00
Location: To the left of Chalong Pier
Tel: +66 (0) 76-381214
Cuisine: Thai & Seafood

Prices are affordable and they also offer a takeaway service.

Cuisine: Mediterranean, Greek and Thai
Price Range: Affordable

The Lighthouse (formerly Jimmy’s Lighthouse)

This seafront restaurant with a decorative lighthouse on its roof is – amazingly enough – called The Lighthouse and is a popular meeting point for cruising yachties and locals.

It is a friendly place to chill with a beautiful teakwood bar looking out over Chalong Bay. Reasonable prices. Read More...
