Pak Nam Seafood

Pak Nam Seafood received a ‘Michelin Plate’ rating from the new Michelin Guide for Phuket. ‘Michelin Plate is the sign of excellent food.’


Pak Nam Seafood in Phuket Town is a great Thai restaurant located off the tourist areas. Locals and residents know Pak Nam restaurant very well and like to bring their friends for a casual lunch or dinner. It’s a great venue if you are in a mood for good seafood. You can sit in the main open-air room, at the terrace or in one of the air-con rooms. The menu is surprisingly long, decently illustrated and in English. Staff can also speak enough English to take your order.
