Phuket Best Seafood Restaurant!!

I spent my New Year celebrations in Phuket.. and as usual, being a holiday.. and part of Thailand, it was fun!

And again, one of the things I enjoy while traveling is to taste the local food. And in this trip, I did just that!

This restaurant (Kalim Rim Lay) is located at Kalim beach, just above the more crowded Patong beach.

By the looks of it from the outside, it didn't looked pricey.. nor run downed.

Instead it looked rather cool with atap roof 'huts' and a seaview for diners. Plus points!!

Also it seems to have lots of local customers. Another (big) plus point!

What greeted us was the 'chef' BBQ-ing some chicken and fish.. which turned out to be the best dishes here! (and a so must try!!).

But apart from that, I also enjoyed the other dishes like the raw prawns and BBQ squid (just couldn't resist that each time I eat at a restaurant by the sea)!

The food on the whole was good. The BBQ fish were nicely cooked and the meat fresh. It reminded me a bit like those baked fish I've had at the roadside at Bangkok.

The service is also pretty ok tho may get somewhat busy during peak times. But if you are a tourist, not in a hurry, that may not matter.

Anyway I know this cos we went to the restaurant twice (yup, it was that good!!).

Oh and finally, the price was reasonable too (a baked fish was about THB60).

Truly a restaurant one should visit when going to Phuket, and who wanna try what the locals eat - at local prices!!

*The restaurant is open for lunch & dinner. Opening hours from 10am - 10pm. 

*To get there, just take a taxi (tuk tuk). The restaurant is just opposite Sea See Hotel/ Kalim Place Hotel. 

*The boss is Daris, tel no 08 95914008.
