After seeing the sea cicadas on Bizarre Foods, my 6 year old twins wanted to try this place. So we headed out to find it. It's not at Mai Khao beach, but on the road to this beach. The sea cicadas were a good find. Not to die for but good. Everything else we ordered was meh. If you're staying... More

If you fancy somewhere away from the hotel then this is worth a stop. We had squid and octopus which was very nice . If you was full up there was a local cat more than happy to finish what was left. Place is very clean, staff very friendly.

Our taxi driver recommended this place to try when we told him we wanted to go to Kin Dee on our last ight in Phuket. Should have gone to Kin Dee. Prices were not any lower but flavors were really lacking. My coconut was not ripe enough, the meat not tasty at all. Mango sticky rice cannot beat Kin Dee's... More

We (4 people) dined here twice during our 5-day stay at a resort along the Nai Yang beach. The food was very good. My favorite was the fried sea cicadas (mole crab). The shrimp tom yum was delicious with pretty good size shrimps. The place is open space under a roof, and we had some minor problem with mosquitoes. The... More

Was in Phuket and found Jakkajan Seafood had moved. Got their address and visited for lunch. The food was alright but was not the wonderful food they served when on the beach. Not very friendly and I was disappointed overall, especially as I had friends with me who I had told - this restaurant is wonderful. I wont bother trying... More

Nothing was impressed. They mix flour into shrimp omelet, their signature dish, deep fried mole crab, was not remarkable at all. There is a better place and a better food out there. One good thing is they do not overcharge the food price!

Stopped at this restaurant on the way back from phuket town as it is along the main road. Big new open area with lots of space. Service is bad and not friendly. staff is totally uninterested, what a difference with Kin Dee where staff is super friendly. Menu is not very informative. The food was a bit better than the...

One of my favs - so glad to see that it re-opened after being moved from the beach, The prices are a touch over the top (thanks mainly to the price gouging run my the marriott and the other high end resorts that charge almost 400b for a plate of rice - but the food here is excellent
