    Laem Hin Seafood
    Laem Hin Seafood, located on Phuket’s east coast, is a wonderful place to eat fresh seafood while taking in the ocean views. Largely built on a spacious wooden terrace, there’s no denying that the restaurant’s location above the river is lovely, and the food is excellent. You can enjoy the freshest seafood because everything is provided by neighborhood fisherman and kept alive in big tanks in the kitchen. Additionally, the restaurant serves a wide variety of southern Thai foods. Fresh oysters paired with garlic, lime, chili, and herbs are a must-try. The stir-fried crab with black peppercorns is another delectable seafood recipes from Thailand you have to try.
    • Opening Hours: Open daily from 10:00 - 21:00.

    Mor Mu Dong Restaurant
    Mor Mu Dong is quite an unusual seafood restaurant in east Phuket. It’s a bit difficult to locate, which makes it a bit of a hidden gem. You can opt to eat outside in small, private wooden “Salas” overlooking the mangroves, or inside in simple, rustic settings under the trees. Here, the seafood is superb. In fact, the Phuket Michelin Guide gave the eatery a “Bib Gourmand” rating. The stuffed fish, salad with squid, and sea bass in plum sauce are some of the most well-liked dishes. In addition to seafood, Mor Mu Dong serves delectable hog dishes with kruang nam prik, a spicy chili sauce, and chicken dishes.

    Bang Pae Restaurant

    Bang Pae Seafood Restaurant
    On Phuket’s east coast, close to the Bang Pae Waterfall, is another well-known seafood restaurant called Bang Pae. Similar to Mor Mu Dong, it is somewhat hidden and hard to find. That said, the restaurant is almost always packed on weekends. With mangroves and the open sea in the background, the location is simple but exciting. The food at the restaurant is also exceptional because it has a “Bib Gourmand” certification. Popular dishes like steamed blue crab, tom yum talay, fresh oysters with local herbs, stir-fried veggies with pine nuts, and tempura shrimp will never let you down.

It might not be the fanciest seafood restaurant, but the specialities are arguably some of the best in Phuket.
