Nak-Kerd Seaview Cafe near Phuket Big Buddha

A restaurant with a view near Big Buddha

Nak-Kerd Seaview Cafe (previously called Star Mountain Sunset Restaurant) is a small restaurant with a superb panoramic view of Karon Beach. The place is simple, partly made of thatched roofs and bamboo tables, which adds a lot of charm to a simple lunch or dinner after you visit the Big Buddha of Phuket. Nak-Kerd is the name of the immense hill where the Buddha is built.

The food

Nak-Kerd Seaview Cafe serves some simple Thai food that perfectly fits the easy-going atmosphere. The menu is in English and well-illustrated with photos, so it’s easy for anyone to order. We went several times and ordered Pad Thai, Fried noodles and rice omelette. It’s not pretentious, but it’s a perfect break when exploring. You can even stop for a drink and admire the amazing sunsets over Karon Beach; it is worth going to, even just for that moment.

Don’t miss the spirit house nestled between massive boulders. Those spirit houses are very Thai and usually beautifully decorated with small figurines.

The restaurant is also surrounded by vast bushes of colourful flowers that attract a dozen butterflies. Don’t miss them! They lazily flutter from flower to flower, making it very easy to take close-up photos.
