Rom Sai Baan Nakalay Restaurant
Romsai is a little restaurant well hidden from view, with a beautiful view of the sea and a nearby beach. Serving local Thai food for lunch, definitely has a fun mood, feeling like being far from Phuket. Built on a rocky cliff alongside the seaboard north of Patong Beach, it serves good food on typical round concrete tables or on wooden platforms where you sit on one of those woven carpets found in so many Thai houses. Since they became increasingly popular, they even built a new covered area with a fantastic view of the Thavorn private beach.
Romsai Restaurant is a great escape for us on weekends, even when the weather is not sunny, the food might not be the most amazing but it is well compensated by the unique feel and the beautiful natural environment. The simplicity of the place with the sound of breaking waves and the wind in the trees brings a welcome change in the usual seafront restaurant. Being a waiter in this restaurant must be like going to fitness, climbing boulders up and down for hours.
Among the dishes, we never fail to order are Nam Tok [spicy and sour beef salad], a good old-fashioned Som Tam [papaya salad], Soop Nomai [bamboo salad] and as usual, some beer with ice cubes in it to do like locals do. Prices vary between 80 and 150 baht per dish on average. A soft drink is 25 baht and beer starts at 50 baht.
How to get to Romsai?
Drive north of Patong beach direction to Kamala Beach and just before reaching the long Thavorn Beach Resort long straight slope, there will be a small house on your left. Lots of cars parked are usually a good indicator. Parking there can be tricky.
