Rock Salt is the popular beachside restaurant at THE NAI HARN with an idyllic position overlooking the Andaman Sea. The location inspires lazy breakfasts, long lunches, extended sunset happy hours, and indulgent evening dining affairs, all enjoyed as time slows to the rhythm of the rolling waves
“…The creative Mediterranean-Thai menu has fun with seasonal, all-organic produce and global influences,
crafting pea-pesto pasta, Rawai-seafood bouillabaisse and fish of the day, served steamed or wood-fired”

Our uncompromising approach from farm to fork dishes at Rock Salt extends far beyond the island’s shores. Australian mussels are imported once a week and offered on the menu for four days to guarantee connoisseurs the freshest mollusks on Phuket. Fine de Claire oysters are delivered as often as three times a week to guarantee the most succulent appetizers. And either delicacy can be enjoyed with a glass of chilled rosé wine chosen from a list of the world’s best pinks specially selected for THE NAI HARN by global wine critic James Suckling.
Fresh, regional ingredients drive our simple, modern approach in the kitchen where the focus is on purity, authenticity, and the reinterpretation of iconic recipes. Rock Salt embrances the Mediterranean diet not just as a culinary mode but as a lifestyle. It's the food. It's the rituals. It's getting fresh air and the right amount of sunshine. Food nourishes more than just the body. It sustains us, transforming us energetically and filling a deep human need for connection, comfort, indulgence and delight. Here on the Naiharn shoreline, food is a ritual of its own. It's one that invites a slow, easy pace and leisurely hours under the sun, picking up energy throughout the day and transforming into a nightly celebration. An informal late lunch might spill over into sunset drinks.
Pull up a seat at one of the outdoor wooden tables to gather with friends around generous sharing plates. You might taste the citrusy tang of the Tuna Ceviche prepared with triple A grade yellow fin tuna, green garden heirloom tomatoes, passion fruit, pomelo, chilli, coriander, fresh mint, lime and olive and be greeted by a whiff of the wood-fired locally caught tiger prawns as they are being brought to the table. Much like the music rituals, art and design, and of course the guests themselves, Rock Salt food loosely embrances and eclectic mix of different cultures. As the culinary iteration of the cultural exploration and bohemian spirit that characterizes Rock Salt, the menu seeks to meld the bounty of the surrounding Phuket islands with cooking techniques from afar.
