The lovely beachfront Octopus Restaurant is owned and has been run since 1986 by a charming local family. It is set right on Nai Yang Beach and has beautiful sea, boat and sunset views, in the evening torches are lit on the beach. Nai Yang is around 10 minutes car ride from Phuket International Airport and Sirinat National Park. There is an indoor seating area, and also an outside beach terrace. The extensive menu lists popular International dishes, seafood and Thai dishes, which can be made spicy or less spicy, according to diner's tastes. Popular items are steamed mussels, Thai fish cakes, steamed snapper in a lime and garlic sauce, fried tofu with cashew nuts, panang curry, prawn glass noodle salad and fish and chips. Food is not overpriced, considering the location and is served in fairly large portion sizes.
