The facility and location are terrific, but you'd be better off to walk through and admire the place on your way to a different place to eat. Went for a family dinner with youngest child 11. Found it curious that the place was not crowded at 7 pm on a Thursday night, but soon discovered why. Unfrequented, they sat us in the smoking section; we had to waive down the multiple wait staff that were merely standing by in the distance; drink order - wrong; wife ordered the lobster (very expensive) and they brought all other 5 meals to the table and just walked away. Figuring they would be rushing back to get her meal, but only came back with the spice rack. Asking whats up with the lobster, they said it would be their shortly (without any remorse). It came almost 10 min after the others that were almost done, without any real apologies; had to waive them over again to come clear finished plates, asked if we wanted desert (wanted out of there) said no, then disappeared back to the standby area until I had to waive down and ask for the bill. All smiles from them on the way out - as if this must have been their best day. Overall facility/location was great, service is TERRIBLE; food average (at best) - but its a dinner spot, not a museum.

Thank you for your review and pleased you enjoyed BRP Kalim. Wines are expensive due to our high taxes.

As with any where in the world, location pays a part in the pricing. We do pride ourselves on the quality of our food, the presentation, décor, location and service which is why our prices are a little higher.

We were recommended Baan Rim Pa by several friends who have visited phuket. We were staying in the Laguna area and made dinner reservations for 10 people.

We chose the Kalim property of Baan Rim Pa as we did not want to be near crowded Patong.

Made all in hardwood, the restaurants transport you into a different era and space. The team was really very courteous, and we got a table for 10 persons overlooking the sea and you could see the Paton beachfront brightly lit up at night.

The food was exceptional. I can make recommendations as we ordered so many dishes that i dont remember the names of.

Great food, great experience and a great evening !!

A must visit while in Phuket !!
