This little place is on the corner opposite the Rawai Palm Resort, yes it sits over a canal - but it wasnt smelly on the nights we visited. Really interesting restaurant, lovely staff and food and drinks were exceptional. They have the best fruit shakes in Rawai and everything we ordered was so tasty, the desserts are also delicious -...

Lovely meal but we were a little confused by the restaurant name. Service good and with a smile. The best chicken satay we have had in Thailand :o) Very eclectic surroundings and interesting decorations kept us interested and amused. Thanks!

Went to this funky little restaurant, not once, but twice, while staying in Rawai. You could not find nicer, more attentive, ( yet still relaxed ) people anywhere! The food is fabulous, and super fresh, with authentic Thai flavours! Thankfully, not dumbed down for tourists!! Very well priced with a good selection of drinks as well, and a really cool,... More

We had dinner here. Very cool place as it back onto a slough and is very quiet. A word of warning - the slough sometimes smells a bit high, so go on a day when it does not. Good food. The shark tasted a bit strong - wasn't sure if it was old or that is how shark tastes like.... More

We are in Phuket for a few weeks. Have visited The Recycle a couple of times. Great food, staff very friendly and speak good English all at a very reasonable price. The restaurant has been constructed from various recycled materials which provides an interesting backdrop to the meal. Would recommend a visit we will return before we go home.

We visited this restaurant because it had been recommended by two locals. Although moderately priced, our red snapper specials did not live up to the hype and were served with french fries or veggie rice. The spring rolls appeared hand made and were tasty as was the pineapple shake. The building was interesting and had many items to explore. I... More

They specialize in Shark dishes. but all their dishes are delicious having tried almost everything on their menu. thought this restaurant deserved a good listing on trip advisor. the... More

We found the food here tasted great and was very reasonably priced. We had a main each, shared a salad and two drinks each for less than 700baht. a bonus was glasses of white wine were only 80baht, a lot cheaper than most places. my girlfriend likes her South Australian whites and found this one was ok considering the price....

What a gorgeous quirky little restaurant with some really interesting trinkets and nic naks that are all, obviously, recycled. Beautiful little shack of a restaurant, which some would think could be deceiving, but have a go. We ate here twice on our 1 week stay in Rawai, the food was beautiful and the service was excellent, and it was extremely... More
