We reluctantly tried this when we came last year. I had an excellent fish dish the first night and so we came back and had another excellent meal. Then taking a walk off the beach, losing our bearings we found it again one lunch time and had great sushi. When we talked about lunchtimes for this year I said I... More

This place was built around 8 years ago, white concrete, fresh. A sushi chef prepared (pricy) fresh sushi and other dishes where available as well of course like the normal bbq fish and seafood. Today it's worn down and most of the charm is exchanged for a dull experience. Nice staff and service, but there are better places to go.

We went to Mali Chic at Palm Square. There was live music and good atmosphere. The staff was friendly, but the food was bland - even on the thai food. The food was over priced compared to other local restaurants and the beer was double priced of the other places we went to.

We stayed at the Kata Beach Spa and Resort and found this place directly opposite. My wife and I enjoy seafood hence the title. We visited this restaurant on four occasions and the chef did not fail. We had the tempura prawns ( awesome), the scallops and on each occasion cooked to perfection. An added bonus was the free soup... More

Seems like most nights Mali is popular with visitors to Kata attracted by the big fresh seafood display on the footpath. We chose however to eat Italian food here and it was well cooked and tasty. The food is obviously cooked by chefs who know European tastes which might explain why Russians tourists seem to like Mali. But all the... More

Read reviews. Believe that things have changed since many of them. The food, service and location is spectacular. Right at a busy street with some noise bringing a nice pulse even for family's. Had blue crab, squid, mussels, clams and flat lobster. All well cooked, elegantly served by nice servants. Can warmly recommend. The lunch there is however less good.... More

Nice seafood and kebab selection at entrance on ice! Price for Chicken Kebab was 190 Baht- comes with Salad Bar, Soup, Bread/butter and French Fries. Very Clean and Good Service! Beware of the Grilled Chilli Pepper - I thought it was a Tomato. I had a glass of imported Chardonnay- 220Baht. Overall Good meal!
