Went for the famous Thai crab curry and wasn't disappointed. It was excellent, loads of crab, spicy, just delicious.others enjoyed there Pad Thai and Massaman dishes. Was nice to eat somewhere with a bit of history. Don't be put off by the run down look outside.

The restaurant is in a nice old building with a quaint traditional feel as it hasn't been fully renovated. I loved the atmosphere but the Tom yum, fish in yellow curry soup and duck salad were unsubtle and disappointing.

Any how, I reached the restaurant after nearly an hour. I had ordered the green curry chicken, crab meat fried rice , pork cooked with peppers corn n onion,... More

we went in as recommended by the locals. The ambience was very present, very traditional unique style. We ordered the popular dishes and all the food came out very quick and we love it! Very phuket style. Zaap!

Visited this unassuming locally known Thai restaurant & it was a very enjoyable experience... the food menu gives you choices in both Thai & English.. in specific foods categories with details to make informed decision. The staff is attentive without intrusive & ensuring your dining experience is maximised. The decor is original and stands still in the past, steeped in... More

This was the 4th time I have been to raya and I have never really enjoyed it. The friends we stay with always take their visitors there but I never understand why. On this occasion there were 6 of us and the food came out within 5 mins of ordering. - which in itself is suspicious. The pork was lukewarm... More

Was attracted by its classical building look when we walked by, then we checked the comments on trip advisor, and booked a table here. But I was quite disappointed when I walked in. Though the outlook is great, but the inside is a little bit run down, I guess they need some maintenance, esp the damp marks on the wall.... More

We popped in here for a light meal on recommendation that it was the best place to eat in Phucket Town. Without labouring over the details, we were left standing waiting to be seated. apparently ignored for a while whilst staff passed by us twice without asking. It wasn't ven that busy. On eventually being seated we were handed two... More

Nice Heritage house. Poorly lighted car park compound behind. Gave us scarily feeling initially when the driver drop us there. However once inside the restaurant, the lighting and nice atmosphere. Steam Thai style fish and the black sauce pork was fantastic. A must try! Highly recommended if you decide to try Chinese Thai food. Great service.
