Restaurant Review: Raya Restaurant in Phuket Town, Thailand (ภาษาไทยในคอมเม้นแรกนะคะ 🇹🇭) Unrenovated, unpretentious and unbelievably good, Raya has been serving southern-Thai fare for more than 20 years. In fact, my father has been one of its early loyal customers and it has been him who suggested that I dined here at least once during the trip. This two-storey Sino-Portuguese institution keeps things authentic and old-worldly with its jade-hued wood doors, original mosaic floors, gramophone, stained glass and shuttered windows. Standout dishes include creamy crab-meat curry with coconut milk and rice noodles and Bai Lieng Pad Kai (Stir-Fried Malindjo Leaves with Egg). The whole dining experience was simply amazing. The cooking was homely but very elegant, with high-quality, fresh-from-the-sea ingredients and acute attention to details. The host told me that the owner, who is now in her 70s, still goes to the market to check out local produce everyday. No wonders her food tastes so amazing! Bold yet balanced. Highly recommended!
