Laem Hin Seafood is one of the best known local seafood restaurants in Phuket. Located on the east coast of the island, Laem Hin is huge but still manages to get full for dinner and even more on weekends. The setting above the water is very pleasant but it’s not what we would call a romantic restaurant, it’s way too busy for that. The success of Laem Hin comes from their excellent and very fresh seafood plus a very wide range of Thai dishes you can order. And once you start knowing what good Thai food tastes like, it will be hard for you to go back to those tourist restaurants in Patong.
The food is delivered directly from local fishermen and kept in live tanks you can see in the kitchen. There is a large parking so you can park your car quite easily. To go there from Patong by Tuk Tuk will be a bit of a challenge since it is quite far (21 km – 35 mn) and the ride might cost you more than the meal.
If you want to try something even more memorable, get a long tail boat ride from the Laem Hin jetty to one of the floating restaurants you see in the far. It’s only a 5 min ride but the atmosphere is fantastic.
