Myself and my partner visited here last night and have to say we had a great time. The live music was excellent and not like most of the cheesy music some of the other restuarants in Phuket play.
We shared a chicken satay starter which was ample for the 2 of us followed by Beef Massaman for me and my partner had the Seafod Pad Thai which came with huge fresh prawns. We had a special beer cocktail which again was huge and big enough for 2 to share.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere as its next to the beach and near a little estuary where fishing boats come in to moore so the setting is very pleasant and allows you to just sit and watch the world go by. The service was excellent and the mosquito spray on the table a very welcome suprise.

Decent Thai found on an awesome seafront spot in the upmarket Kamala bay.

Not cheap but can't say any one of the dishes 10 of us ordered was a standout. Poor reviews of the musician can't be true right? Sadly he's the only part of this dinner I remembered clearly, for the wrong reasons!

Not bad, not great = No strong reason to return.

Right at the end of the beach you will find the Bua Restaurant in a romantic setting in our case with a live singer.

In our case, it was almost empty so the staff had enough time to explain to us the fresh fish they had and the different options on how they could prepare it. We took one and were not disappointed. All our food was delicious and we had a good time.

It is a little bit more expensive than other restaurant in town, certainly much cheaper than the Silk Restaurant which is close by, but worth the money.

My friends and I enjoyed the food very much. Very tasty. But there were a lot of bugs here- that sort of impacted our overall experience.

The setting of the restaurant is nice as it overlooks the bay. The menu is authentic and the quality of the food good. This is where the locals go for a quality meal.
