About Seafood Market, Phuket

Of the handful of fish markets popular in the island of Phuket, this one is hands-down the greatest. When you buy here, you are buying directly off the fishermen who have caught their produce at sea - fish, prawn, lobster, crab. And the setup is curious too! You buy your still living fish from one line of stalls along the road, and then cross the road to the other side where you can give your fish to a line restaurants, and have your purchase be cooked for you.  All the restaurants will cook your fish for the mere price of 100 Thai baht. This place is very popular with the locals too. Apparently for the best dining experience here, don't look at the menu. Just ask the chef to recommend his best.

Seafood Market, Phuket Reviews

  • Absolutely bomb place to get fresh seafood. Grab a seat at this restaurant. You can order from the menu here and/or walk across the way to buy your favorite kinds of live seafood and have this restaurant cook them any way you like. The seafood sauce here is very good... Sour, spicy, with a hint of sweetness and salty. Perfect for all the different seafoods you'll eat.

  • Best seafood market in Phuket. You can choose your fish or lobster and take it to the restaurant to prepare it. Freshest seafood you can get!

  • Food is ok, it's hard to make live seafood not tasty. Other side it's extremely overpriced like all in Phuket. 50$ for a small lobster? really? go ahead :) Weekend getaway to Vietnam would cost same amount but 3 times cheaper market experience.

  • Fresh & alive seafood. Pick type, size, quality and the way you would like them to cook. Reasonable price

  • Great place for the seafood meal of a lifetime. Pick your own fresh (live) seafood from the "wet" market, take it to any of the restaurants opposite and they'll cook it any which way you want it! Not ultra expensive. Best restaurant for me is Mook Dee! Over 7 years they have been amazingly consistent in delivering quality meals. Try the Tamarind prawns and tempura prawns. Fresh and delicious
