If fresh, delectable and sumptious seafood is what you are after in the island paradise of Phuket, then a trip to Kan Eang 2 is a definite must on your itinerary!

The restaurant not only serves up some of the freshest seafood on the island BUT Kan Eang 2 is literally situated right on the beach with views that need to be seen to be believed.

The freedom and cost effectiveness of a hire car meant that we returned 3 times for a seafood feast at our leisure, each time experiencing different delights that Kan Eang 2 had to offer. Parking is more than ample and whilst the restaurant is located at the end of a rather winding and quiet road, once you walk towards the restaurant it becomes very clear that you are in for a very special night.

Each night we arrived at different times and each time the view was different, taking in the setting sun, a cool refreshing breeze blowing and the gentle lapping of the waves upon the beach we were mesmerised even before we got to our table. The restaurant is huge and offers both and indoor and outdoor setting, the indoor setting though is hardly used as most prefer to be seated as close to the waters edge as possible and we were fortunate enough to be seated in this very romantic setting over the 3 nights.

The staff at Kan Eang 2 are very welcoming and will attempt to chat to you as they show you to your table. Once seated, they present their extensive food and accompanying drinks menu and give you time to settle in, look over the menus and of course take a number of photos of the views before you.

The menu offers fresh seafood, thai favourites and various other dishes... for us though it was all about the seafood. We started of our night as the sun was setting with a couple of alcoholic (Singha beers) and non-alcoholic beverages (fresh coconuts from the shell and blended frozen coconut shakes)... refreshing indeed.

Over the 3 nights we visited Kan Eang 2, we tried nearly all of their seafood items, from their barbecued whole sea bass and snapper, king prawns and crab to one of the tastiest whole baked lobsters with fresh garlic and herbs we had ever enjoyed. The best part of this magnificent fresh seafood experience was the ability to follow your waitperson to choose the live seafood items that you wanted!

Aside from the fresh seafood we ordered, we also tucked into some entrées of deep fried fish skin, a panang curry, deep fried soft shell crabs, green papaya salad and grilled marlin. Needless to say each night had us enjoying a 3 hour dining experience.

Once the sun goes down the mood lighting at the restaurant really takes over, this along with the gentle refreshing breeze and live music on offer really makes for a very romantic evening indeed.

The service at the restaurant is first rate, with attentive staff making sure that you are enjoying your evening and of course the dishes you have chosen. Each dish is presented differently and the staff make recommendations of various dishes with complete confidence in your satisfaction. It was also nice to see that the restaurant is also a favourite amongst the locals with a number of them choosing to celebrate birthdays and even a work promotion.

The fresh delicious food, the ambience, quality, affordability and above all the excellent service at Kan Eang 2 makes for a very special night indeed.

Good variety of seafood in menu. Parking space was gigantic. A romantic place during night time. Reasonbale prices. Mosquitoes at night time are a lot.

Fresh Seafood and other local delicacies with original tastes. Prices are a bit on a high side but you pay for not only the food but also the location. It's really a long stretch of beach in front of the restaurant and that your kids can even play a little game of soccer on the beach while you're dining. A great place for families with children. My restaurant pet peeves include cluttered seatings with little to no space to move and that one would need to shout to each other to be overheard! Well, this restaurant has more space in the world as it's very spacious and generous in its seatings. Will visit again!

We have lunch at a very nice table with sea view. The food is very delicious. We recommend fresh yummy tiger prawn and coconut crab curry. The price is average. The service is good. We definitely come back again.
