I can't work out why, frankly, my food was rubbish & yet there are all these rave reviews?! It was bland (quite difficult to achieve in Thai cooking) and the squid and prawns were both so overcooked that they were hard. Perhaps I just had bad luck / a bad chef? I'd give it another go if I had more... More

Best sea food we have had since starting our travels round Asia. We had peppered squid for starters and chilli prawn & prawn yellow curry for our main. The food was delicious and was very fresh. We got in here at a good time and seen the guy delivering the fresh lobsters to the restaurant. There was a great atmosphere... More

When we first came to Phuket in 2006 Kwong Seafood Restaurant was already legendary for the owner's words 'Okay okay, no good no pay'. We always paid, which means that we had no bad meals ever. In fact, Kwong serves great, delicious food. Mainly seafood, but for those who don't eat fish there's a wide choice of other dishes available.... More

On my 4th visit to this amazing restaurant. Great friendly staff. Well priced. The amazing bank notes mural from different parts of the world is an awesome addition. Well worth a visit.

I had several only positive experiences with this restaurant. The owner is very nice, menu written not only in English but also in French. An incredible large choise, the seafood is always fresh. Loved this place.

We have come to this restaurant for many years, and when we are in Norway we always talk about how we long for their food. We have crab in spicy thai sauce, sometimes fish, we always order a side dish of morning glory (vegetable), mango salad, and maybe some other dish with shrimp or chicken. Instead of ordering two portions... More

Even if you do not want thefresh fish or seafood, you will be happywith the fried rice or noodle dishes for little money. In our week there we ate there four times :)... More

We tried this place based on TA reviews. Unfortunately we did't have such great experience for us it was average. Food was okay, but not fantastic. I had lobster and I had eaten better lobster in Phuket.

We have been coming here for many years now, and have always been extremely happy with the food and service. There is a large selection of fresh seafood, as well as many other dishes, both Thai cuisine and western food. They always have great suggestions for those who are undecided. The owner, Mr. Kwong is a very friendly character. Their... More
