Aek Rawai Seafood Restaurant is one of the few local restaurants along the roadside of Rawai. This small place doesn’t have any particular sign and may not attract a mass of hungry tourists, but this is where we love to go for a real seafood lunch or dinner. The setting is typical of local restaurants here: the kitchen is on one side of the road and the dining area on the opposite side’s floor, making the staff have to cross back and forth with trays of food!

As mentioned earlier, the Rawai Seafood Market is very popular. You order any fish or seafood you like from one side of the road and take it to the restaurants just opposite to have it cooked for 100 baht per kilo. It’s also fun, but since everywhere tourist tends to flock, prices go up instantly.
