Laem Hin Seafood is among Phuket’s best-known local seafood restaurants. Situated on the eastern coast of the island, Laem Hin is enormous, and generally full at dinnertime and even more so on weekends. The location above the water is delightful, but not exactly romantic. Delicious Thai cuisine and freshly caught seafood are affordable and high-quality. Excellent for a casual dinner night out in a unique location, as the outdoor terrace was built on stilts and sits right above the water and faces towards Koh Maphrao (Coconut Island). This is the perfect place to enjoy Thai seafood dishes.

Opening Hours: 10am–10pm daily
