In Short:

What’s So Awesome About It

A part of the Thavorn Resort Hotel, the Old Siam Authentic Thai Restaurant or the Nakalay restaurant offers everything a good beachfront restaurant promises to serve. A stunning view of the Nakalay beach, scrumptious food, and a friendly staff to cater to your every need. And, what makes this place different from others in the area is that the Thai cuisine served here is unlike anything you would find in Phuket. Here you get an opportunity to take your tastebuds on an authentic Thai dining journey from the bygone era. It has also recently won an award for its exquisite Thai cuisine.

The cuisine contains a lot of exotic and unique flavours that are lovingly prepared. The seafood here is as fresh as it can get and it is caught on the same beach as the restaurant. The presentation of the food is notable to make you appreciate the quality of the dish even more. Some days, they have a beach barbecue which is an amazing experience that leaves you satiated.

Must Try

  • Choo Chee Goong Nang
  • Green Thai Curry
  • Beef Masaman Curry
  • Crispy Fried Phuket Noodles
  • Prawn Cakes.

What’s The Catch

Nothing that’s good come cheaply and the same goes for Old Siam restaurant. While it is true that the restaurant do offers great view, lovely service, and delicious food, guests are known to experience slow service. All this together with a price tag to give you a pause, you might want to skip it. There is an extra charge if you want to be seated at the cabana. You may find mosquitoes, especially at the cabanas so you’ll have to move to an indoor table.

Pro Tip

If you have flexible dates, find out when they are organising a beach barbecue and go then. Book your dinner at least a day in advance. You can ask the staff to end your meal with a private, Thai style Sky Lantern releasing ceremony, which brings you good luck and prosperity.
