If you are looking for a truly unique dining experience, we suggest you make your way down to Koh Kaew and check out Kruvit Raft, Phuket’s only floating raft restaurant. Located just across the bay from the Koh Yao Pier, sits this unusual seafood restaurant that is nestled among other restaurants that are perched upon an enormous floating raft.
Aside from its unusual location and design, Kruvit Raft is also famous for its unbelievably fresh and expertly prepared seafood. To ensure that they serve you the absolute freshest seafood possible, they keep their catches in nets that graciously hang between the rafts. This unique feature also allows for customers to pick which crustacean they wish to dine on.
The restaurant itself is nothing fancy, very similar to every other “Thai” restaurant, it boasts rows of long solid wood tables and benches with the same familiar napkin box and worn down cushions as you find anywhere else on the island. The floor area is well planned, allowing for plenty of space between tables, for a peaceful and enjoyable meal while the crude thatch roofs provide decent cover for the sun and light rain, however you may want to take an umbrella if the rain is heavier.
With an amazing menu stocked full of all the usual seafood suspects such as blue crab and a few that are quite unusual such as the mantis shrimps, the pallet pleasing choices are endless. Whether you’re planning a night out, or just fancy to sit and sip a cold beer while having a night out over Phuket’s east coast, you just need to take the short (FREE) long tail boat from Koh Yao Pier to Kruvit Raft.
