Love this place! It was worth to drive 40 minutes from our hotel on motorbike to get here. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great starter, but main dishes were just amazing. Crab curry is my favourite! Super delicious food with lovely view.

After several poor meals at JW Marriot we started looking for local options and there are not many. Based on trip adviser we found Kin Dee and what a gem. Return taxi from hotel was 700 baht and driver waited. We had a set meal for 2 and a selection of curries and pineapple rice. Food was all exceptional but... More

A $20 taxi ride gets you to this open air restaurant in the middle of the forest. Food was exceptional as was the discreet Thai service. Has to be one of the top restaurants in Phuket. Highly recommend and well worth a visit.

A gem of a place, tucked away on a small road just off 402, just by the water. There is a small sign on 402 to indicate here to take off. A few parking spots are available by the restaurant The place itself has a wonderful setting. As it is close to water it is good to prepare yourself with... More

We were recommended this almost open-air local Thai restaurant by a local person and he was for sure absolutly right. This is a great place for Thai food with a big variety of dishes and combinations and it was not too spicey. The produce seemed fresh and very tasty and especially the dish called: "Phuket Crispy shrimp on wild pepper"... More

The food is simply amazing, with its variety of offerings. They even deliver to the nearby hotels, if requested. A hidden gem worth discovering.

7 nights in Phuket and 4 of them we ate at Kin Dee! Outdoor dining Thai style. Authentic Thai cuisine, great owner, Nin Dee and her lovely manager Yah, will definitely make you feel at home. Their seafood is fresh and delicious. Mango salad with soft shell crab as an appetiser, fantastic taste. The crab meat curry with extremely thin... More

Had food delivered to the Marriot, was told may take 1 hr but food delivered within 30 mins. Excellent quality food, everything we ordered was really well packaged, hot and tasted really good. A definite recommend from me.

Nestled next to a mangrove to give a pleasant ambience for a great dining experience with authentic local flavors. Papaya salad, satay, clear tom yum goong, stir fried doi kham spinach, steam sea bass with spicy sour lime are worth the try. Mosquitoes may posed a problem, but the restaurant does provide hand spray repellent.
