Why Chaiyo seafood is special ?

Feel like a little seafood lunch by the mangrove, without getting too far from Phuket Town? Chaiyo Seafood is a simple little restaurant quite close to town. Nicely built in a more comfortable setting than the famous Mor Mu Dong just across the klong (canal), Chaiyo keeps its live stock directly in the mangrove stream. Seafood can't get much fresher than this...

Nothing very sophisticated, just a nice relax place for a week end lunch or dinner. Once you entered the restaurant through a narrow wooden bridge, you should sit by the riverside in the open air room, rather than the available air con room. That air con room doesn't seem to be used very often anyway... why would you lock yourself between glass walls when you can enjoy the mangrove view and wind?

Lately they added some of these very popular thatched 'Salas wooden house' (see photo), but these are facing the pond, which is not as nice as the riverside.

Food choice is extensive and menu well illustrated (that helps a lot!) but whichever seafood restaurant we go to, we always end up having crab. They seem to specialize in 'Poo Dam', meaning 'Black Crab' which costs between 480 and 590 Baht per kilo for the big ones (about 2 crabs). With its really hard shell, eating a black crab requires skills and patience. Blue Crab is 450 Baht per kilo, easier to eat and tastes sweeter. Lobster is 1,800 Baht per kilo, while the famous Tiger Prawns cost 1,200 baht per kilo, that's for 6 to 10 Prawns.


How to get to Chaiyo seafood?

Located on Kao Kaad Road, Chayo seafood is easy to reach but not easy to find. From Phuket Town, take direction of Chalong and turn left at 'Pathana Thong Thin' street. Once you reach a small circle, take the second exit (that's how my GPS talks) and drive until you see their 'easy to spot signboard'. Bon Appetit!

This is our second time visiting the restaurant for dinner. First was in June 2011. Location It is located very nearby to the new Chaiyo Resort in Muang and next to the mangrove river. In the evening, you can see the boat returning back to the river. Atmosphere It is quite cooling in the evening with it next to the river. They also breed their fishes by the riverside, which makes it fresh when it's cook. Beware of mosquitos though, if you are sitting outside. Although they have mosquito coil all over, it is better to spray yourself with mosquito repellent. We weren't prepared the first time but now, we know what to do. Another alternative is to stay indoor, in their air conditioned room. Food We love their food here. It is far away from where we stay and you need to rent a car or have a driver. We found out that the price is lower than other places like Karon, Patong, Kata and etc. At that time, it only cost us 530 Baht per kilo for flatted lobster and 490 Baht per kilo for the salted baked fish. I will go back again for seafood.
