What the management says: Make mine meat.

What Phuketwan says: Nai Yang is a delightful place. Any resort strip where they run a road around the big trees gets it right. This particular lunchtime, diners at another table take off to the water between courses. All four of them sit there, cooling off, the menfolk also drinking beers. Then it's back to dry land for some more food and good conversation. The arriving aircraft come in low over the water, bringing tourists who, in the main, rush past Nai Yang to southern derstinations. We don't really understand why. Whenever the timing is right, this is the first place we bring new arrivals from the airport for a meal, right by the water. Nothing lets you know better that you've arrived on Phuket, and it's great. For those who want a change from seafood, Rodeo offers an alternative. We tried their Swedish meatballs.

How to find it: From the airport, head towards the Phuket City left-hand turn but instead, go on and veer right to the beach. At the seafront, with Dewa Resort on your right, go left and travel along around the big tree in the road. Rodeo is not far past there, alongside Octopus and No. 4 Restaurant.

Parking: Plenty of room at quiet times of the year, busier in high season.

Phuketwan restaurant reviewers pay for their meals. If someone else does, we tell you so
